This will sound kind of goofy, but I would buy this steamer if I never used it for anything but hard-cooked eggs, and that's the truth. I've yet to meet an XL egg that peels without taking about a third of the white with it, and in way too many years of cooking I've tried all the tricks. The shell still comes off in tiny fragments, or big ones that leave craters in the egg. If I need to make a dozen perfect deviled eggs I have to cook two dozen and hope for the best. The top tier has indentations to hold eight eggs, XL eggs steam for 16 minutes, I let them cool naturally (no cold water bath or ice water plunge). Under a little running water the shells usually come off in one piece, two at most, EVERY time. When I need a dozen perfect eggs I steam a dozen eggs, no hoping involved, and because they're no longer a PITA to peel I keep hard-cooked eggs on hand all the time now.
This is also very easy to clean~ I placed it in the top rack of the dishwasher, is quiet, and very durable. A MUST HAVE kitchen item!
