K28229 - Cooks Essentials Stainless Steel Egg Cooker & Food Steamer
This egg cooker does not cook hard boiled eggs. The timer always goes off before they are done with water still in the unit. The container for the water is easy too measure but the unit will not work properly. I have tried a number of times but I can never get hard boiled eggs.
No more burned boiled eggs
Love hard-boiled eggs but was always forgetting they were on the stove. Had many burned eggs to throw out. This is perfect! I do use large eggs and they fit just fine. Cooked perfectly every time and peal easily. Now I have great eggs whenever I want them!!
Works fast, and buzzer is nice and loud!
I had another brand that worked well, but I couldn't hear the buzzer, so I would forget them, and YUCK.
This one works great, and has a great LOUD buzzer!
PLUS, it has more component parts for steaming and cooking other things, but I mostly need it for eggs. The thing about hard-boiling with an egg cooker is that all the eggs sit upright and each cooks in the the same direction, with the yolk in the exact middle where it is best for deviled eggs. That way when you cool them, peel them, and cut them in half, they all look the same, if they are the same size eggs.
The deviled eggs were pretty to look at with the help of PREPOLOGY's SQUEEZE BOTTLE Decorator icing set. It took a few more minutes, but was worth the prep. Then I put the finished eggs in the DEBBY MEYER'S Box that came with the free EGG TRAY! I LOVE QVC!!!
i bought this specifically to hard boil eggs. but this is a wonderful steamer for a single gal. I didnt smell anything after the water steams off and the inside of machine is easily cleaned after use. The eggs are customizable to your likeing by the water you add the cup provided is functional as a good starting place thanks qvc =) i love it! And, honestly the buzzer is not a horrible noise at all, not any worse than my washer or dryer going off to tell me when they are done either.
Makes perfect eggs!
This is a very nice small egg cooker. It made perfect soft and hard cooked eggs for me.
I love having an egg cooker to steam hard cooked eggs rather than boiling them on the stove top because the shells peel so easily. Plus, it doesn't allow me to forget the eggs when they are ready.
WONDERFUL LITTLE EGG COOKER!
I got this a few weeks ago and I am THRILLED with it! Best little kitchen gadget for 20 bucks! Cooks eggs perfectly and has an alarm when the eggs are done. And don't worry, it's not too loud, like some people complain about. I like that you can fill it with water, set the eggs inside and forget about it until the buzzer goes off and VOILA! You've got perfectly cooked eggs! Wat could be better? Go ahead and get this, you won't be disappointed!
I use distillied water. It's wonderful, and quick too.
This is just what I needed. My husband was always turning off my eggs when I had them on the stove telling me they were cooked. This happens no more because this is the perfect little timer and the eggs are just right.
The smell is just a little stinkie but just for a minute or two. The buzz is not as loud that I had read on other reviews. It is loud enough to be heard and so I can turn it off and not burn up the machine. Great steamer
A Powerful Little Appliance !
It is an Ahsome appliance! It cooks 6 eggs at a time!! Great for 2 people.. It steams too and poaches eggs.. All you have to do is plug it in.. It steams rice and vegs.. I love it. Our eggs this morning were great!! Customer, Steff, From the CRYSTAR COAST......
I cooked 6 large eggs with out any problems...great size.
It'll do for now
It does a good enough job cooking the eggs but i'll definitely be looking to replace it with some other cooker. The manual recommends using medium size eggs but even then it's a tight fit if you're cooking six eggs. The alarm that goes off after the water evaporates was startling. It's louder than a smoke alarm and is a continuos long beep until you turn it off. If your not in the same room when it goes off you'll find yourself running to shut it. There's an awful burning smell as the water evaporates and it does leave the bottom brown but that can be cleaned off with a damp paper towel if you clean it right away. Only two stars because now i have to stand by it as it cooks so i can shut it off just before its done to avoid the burnt smell and loud alarm. I'll be looking for something that has an auto shut off and maybe non-stick.
Lots of Fun!!!
I ordered one of these gadgets and loved it!!! My son wanted it and am coming back for another. It does burn on bottom of pan but that cleans right out with damp cloth once system cools down. Follow basic directions for anything you wish to cook just like it was on the stove top.
