A very good appliance once you use it a while.
Takes a bit of getting used too, since cooking the egg more requires more water for a given number of eggs, yet cooking more eggs to a given hardness requires less water.
Once you have determined how much water to use, it is better to add the last bit to the graduated cylinder using an eyedropper as the amount added must be exact in order to get repeatable results.

I got this after seeing an HSN infomercial for the Chef's Choice version. I liked that this one had an auto shut-off feature the other one was lacking and it was the only one I could find that delivered to Canada at the time. So I went for it. I ended up returning mine because I hated the shape of the poached eggs mold which makes it nearly impossible to get the eggs out without breaking the yolk. Also the auto shut-off feature is not like that of a kettle. It waits untill the machine has cooled down, and then starts heating again until you either turn it off or unplug it. So after returning this one and purchasing the Chef's Choice version, here's what I think of the Cuisinart:

- The fact that piercing the shells is recommended (and you do get a pin under the water cup for this) is a good thing. It makes for fluffier, dreamier eggs;
- The fact that the machine only shuts off once the water you measured has completely evaporated, makes for a more difficult cleanup of the base, which happens to contain electronic parts. Not good;
- If you tend to lose stuff like the measuring cup, you may prefer the Chef's Choice as that one has a sliding timer with the desired egg type written on the machine and you won't have to measure the water;
- If you plan on using the poaching tray, be aware that it makes weird 1 inch deep sharp pie shapes. Not great for sandwiches, not great for unmolding, and not great for omelets either. I prefer Chef's Choice wider, rounded bottom oval shapes;
- While the auto shut-off feature is far from perfect, this one is the only egg cooker I could find with one.

All in all, neither machine is perfect, but you'll probably only prefer this one if you're not planning on poaching much.

I have enjoyed this product because I am a retiree living in a retirement home with a small kitchenette in my room, not big enough to do any extensive cooking but enough so that I can read my paper while I am eating breakfast. Still I missed having the protein that comes from eggs. I tried doing them in a microwave but the danger of burning myself, getting them in and out of the oven was too great. Someone told me about the Cuisinart Egg cooker on which I could boil or poach eggs simply.
I ordered one from Amazon on line and I am very pleased with it. It takes up little space,is easy to operate and I can boil up to seven eggs in it at a time or I can poach 3 eggs if I want to.
A few days later I ordered a book from Amazon and received it a very few days later. A good experience !

Bought this during a reno to try and have normal breakfasts without the stove. Figured it would be a throwaway afterward as I generally find most single use gadgets don't earn their cupboard space Amazing little contraption though! I have continued to use it for months after I could revert to stovetop options. I really like soft boiled eggs but had given them up as a breakfast option because I would get distracted and forget them and I'd never had a satisfactory egg timer despite several trials. Now they are back on the menu. I tell all kinds of people about this, but they are nearly all doubtful or mocking....I mean who can't boil an egg?! But I really highly recommend if you've got the storage space.

Product itself will take some tweaking in amounts of water to cook eggs properly to personal taste. so far so good. A soft boiled egg cooks faster than it would take to just boil a pot of water. I would recommend if you are lazy like me. Go Aaron!

Great little addition to our appliances. The egg cooker does what it says it will do.
WE still need to find the right balance for poached done "our" way but overall not disappointed.
Really easy clean up. Would recommend to any egg lover.

I bought this unit for one main reason: poaching eggs for English muffin sandwiches. (I had bought the same cooker for my mother a few years ago and she loved it, so I had no concerns about the quality. Also, I've used other egg cookers before so I knew the basics already.) At first I was put off because the egg poaching insert that comes with it makes lumpy, triangular poached eggs, not flat round ones. But I thought about it a bit and figured I could make it work. I have two ramekins that I stack on top of each other, with a small saucer in between so that they don't slip. I use the same amount of water as for 7 hardboiled eggs (as shown on the water cup that comes with the cooker), but it may vary a bit depending on the size of your eggs, the ramekins you use, and the doneness that you prefer. Helps me make perfect English muffin egg sandwiches with a minimum of fuss!

If you boil/poach eggs often, buy this! It cooks eggs with less time and effort, and uses less power as well.
