  • I was curious how long you have had the egg cooker. It looks like a perfect solution for my needs and my large-ish family. I am a bit troubled by the negative reviews that tell us 8% have had it fail, most in the first three months, some after one or two days usage. Have you had any issues? Thank you! Read you every day!

    • I have been using mine for more than 2 years and I absolutely love it. I love to make deviled eggs but hate shelling the eggs. Using this machine I can tell you with all honesty that I have never had one issue with getting the shells off of the eggs. I have even bought 2 back up machines and now I see they have come out with a double egg cooker! Mine cooks 6 but I will be buying the one that cooks 12! You will love it too.

    • Iv has my egg cooker for almost a year now , it’s use every work day of the week 5days out of 7 not had any problems with mine at all bought mine from Amazon x

  • Funny that you didn’t mention the Instant Pot – granted as a device to hard-cook eggs it’s rather expensive, but it’s amazing for that purpose!!

  • I’ve had the electric egg cooker for over one year and love it for hard boiled eggs. They’re perfect every time and simple to peel. Dump the eggs in ice cold water, let them cool, crack the shell all around just by squeezing and the shell falls off. No more boiling water overflowing all over the stove or keeping an eye on the water. Set a timer for the steam cooker and 17 minutes later, you have perfect soft, medium or hard boiled eggs.

  • I love the idea of the egg cooker, being able to boil, poach and make omelettes in the same cooker is brilliant. I don’t know why, but I had a bad time with silicone poaching pods, even after oiling, the eggs didn’t slide out of them easily!
