This thing is pretty amazing for making soft boiled or hard boiled eggs. Makes them perfectly every time, making soft boiled eggs no effort at all while hard boiled come out a bright yellow colour inside. The best thing is how easy it makes hard boiled level eggs to peel, much easier than I achieved through boiling eggs before. I can usually peel one in 5 seconds as the shell detaches from the egg quite well.

A downside to it is that you have to be around for when it finishes. It makes a very loud noise and the plate is still being super heated with no water to absorb it so I wouldn't want it going for long. It can take a while so plan ahead - I often hard boil 2 eggs for a quick breakfast and that takes about 16 minutes or so straight from my fridge. Interestingly, the more eggs you make, the less water it needs to use and the less time it takes (perhaps because the steam has less room to escape?) I've never tried the steamer - I steam stuff in a pot with a steamer basket, this would seem like it's much less convenient in comparison.

Make sure to use distilled water with this so the plate won't collect much minerals. Even then, you'll have to clean it once in a while. I usually just pour some vinegar into it and let it sit a while before pouring it out. That pretty much does the trick. Also, you shouldn't need to poke a hole in the egg, it cooks just fine without one. That may depend on the kind of egg you have though.

Overall, a pretty nice little gadget despite needing some attendance. It's a handy way to automate egg making and does a damn good job at it for a fairly low price (I usually see this below $20).

It's cool but be careful. When its done its done. If you are away from it and it goes off please don't walk to it run to it. The bottom plate burns easily. Overall I would recommend it to everyone

Works well, however an auto shutoff or a timer of some sort would be helpful. The buzzing sound is kind of scary in all honesty. Pets don't like it. That said, the instructions say to punch a hole in the egg using the needle inside - I accidentally forgot this step today and the eggs cooked much better (i.e. cooked to desired level but MUCH easier to peel) than they do normally. I recommend not punching a hole in the shell for this reason.

I would recommend this product - it's so much faster and easier than the traditional way to cook hardboiled eggs.

This is great. I was tired iof boiling eggs and wanted something easy. This is awesome. The eggs cook while you're doing other things and the cool in the machine in no time. Based on the other reviews I just bent the metal egg poker down and ignore it. Also the buzzer isn't a big deal. I highly recommend this product.

This is the greatest little invention. I can now make perfect soft boiled eggs for my husband who loves them with toast for breakfast. If you haven't got this appliance, get it. You will love it. The Genie arrived in perfect condition and delivery was fast. Thank you Amazon.

This was a gift to my daughter, who is so pleased with it. She puts eggs in it, then can forget it. The eggs come out perfect every time. Even her 11 year old daughter can cook the eggs to perfection to make egg salad for school. Thanks Amazon!

We have used this for a month, and it does everything, as stated in the ad. Now that the price has come down, it's the same as walmart.ca!
