When these first came out - I always wondered who the hell buys these?
Well it turns out if eat a lot of eggs or cook for a lot of people at home, you really do need this. This saves a lot of time, energy and makes perfect boiled eggs.

$10.99 is still high, I have seen these as low as $5.99

I have seen the same model $7.99 in this deal last month

So does an instant pot - best you can make with any doneness and easiest to peel - and you don't get stuck with a one trick pony. 6qts are routinely $28 on Best Buy's site and are great rice cookers and quick to make stew, roasts, soups, and braises.

You cant cook anything else while the eggs are being done in an instant pot. Cooking for large families needs simultaneous gadgets and gizmos.

Serious question, what does this do that a large pot of boiling water doesn't do? You can cook way more than 7 eggs in a large pot. I have done 3 dozen once in a large pot.

What does this do different?

Edit: after searching online seems like this steams eggs which supposedly makes the fluffier / creamier. May have to get one to see.

I don't know about steaming, but we have been boiling eggs in regular pot filled with water since decades. Dip the eggs in tap water and put it on medium high. add little salt so peeling it off is easier.

Not the "Instant Pot" brand name. But you can get Best Buy's Insignia brand for that price when it's on sale. I have the Insignia brand and it works great.

That's why I have two! I cooked cilantro lime rice, Japanese rice, pinto beans from dry and not soaked, and lentil taco filling this weekend, all done by 10 am...

As an avid hard boiled egg guy (2 a day, every day, for fifty plus years), I can assure you I've tried every method to make the perfect hard boiled egg with consistency.

From boiling on the stove (boil and simmer, boil, turn off heat, boil then ice bath, boil with salt, vinegar, ice bath, slow cool, etc. etc. etc...) baking, pressure cooker, steamer. And just about every tip from every person who cared to chime in.

While all of the above methods can create a hard-boiled egg, none of them can do it with the ease, efficiency and most importantly, CONSISTENCY of one of these simple egg cookers.

If you've never tried on of these, you just don't get it!

Perfect eggs (hard, soft, medium) EVERY TIME. Every single one jumps out of the shell, no more picking off microscopic sized pieces of shell.

Set it, forget it. I'll put two in the cooker, turn it on, grab a shower, from10-60 minutes later, I'll retrieve my perfectly cooked eggs

No timing, Ice baths, salt water, yada yada.

Ask 12 people how to make the perfect egg and you'll get 12 different answers.

Go to a pressure cooker forum and you'll get another few hundred opinions as to timing, amounts, release times, cooling, etc. etc. Besides who wants to clean out a pressure cooker if they just want a half dozen eggs (or even just 1)?

If you just make eggs once or twice a year for potato salad, or have the time and patience to pick off sand of grain size pieces of shell, then by all means, boil away.

One more thing, I've given away 6 of these after having egg discussions. Every single recipient is a convert. One guy uses his for soft boiled, and claims they're perfect every time. (Hate soft boiled, but who am I to judge?)

Stay safe folks.

Knew someone would have a yoke about it eventually! LMAO

Looks like 5.99 shipping. Thought shipping used to be free...or at least it was on my last couple orders. Could always go to the store to pickup but shouldn't really be doing that these days.
