Noticing that GCR now offers 8% on kitchen appliances, I browsed Amazon and found this egg poacher as one of the Time Limited Offers.
I have been looking for an egg cooker for some time, but those offered at Walmart and Canadian Tire basically consist of a frying pan with egg trays.
I like this one better as it is a durable stand-alone unit with auto-shutoff feature. It also offers trays to cook poached, hard-boiled eggs, and omelets.

Piece of junk unitasker. Reviews are full of fakes. They pay people to give good reviews and promote the item on deal sites.

I do hard boiled eggs in the instant pot and they come out great.

Don't understand the Instant Pot hard boiled egg fascination.

Please do try the steam method instead. Even soft boiled eggs are peelable.

https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/201 ... ecipe.html

1. If serving eggs cold, add 1 tray of ice cubes to a large bowl and fill with water.

2. Add 1 inch of water to a large pot. Place steamer insert inside, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Add eggs to steamer basket, cover, and continue cooking, 6 minutes for soft-boiled eggs or 12 minutes for hard-boiled.

3. Serve immediately if serving hot. If serving cold, immediately place eggs in bowl of ice water and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before peeling.

4. To peel, first gently tap hard-boiled eggs all over to thoroughly crack the shell, then remove shell under a thin stream of running water. (The water helps get under the shell and lift it off the egg.)

Agree I don't get the instant pot thing either; maybe when cooking a larger batch otherwise the pot is too big and requires more effort to rinse afterwards.

I'm a fan of Kenji and have used this steaming method before. I find it gives the exact same results as just boiling eggs in a regular pot; I don't mind the risk of the egg cracking.
Since there are less things to clean I just use a regular pot, so I don't have to bother rinsing and drying the steamer rack.

While it might look like an impractical kitchen gadget, it is actually quite useful when you have limited cooking area. I got a similar one for the office and people are happy to make egg salad and sandwiches for lunch.

They peel soooooooo much easier and no whites stuck to the shell.
3 minutes for runny yolks.
4 minutes for perfect hard boiled eggs.

What about the poached egg function? to me that would be the selling point since poached eggs are the hardest to cook compared to boiled

This is literally the most used thing in our kitchen. My Boys LOVE medium boiled eggs, and love them while they are still warm. The issue is, getting them that way in a pot, is hit or miss, and peeling them can be a nightmare, and they can't be made in advance, because if you re-heat them, you over cook the yolk.

That's where this comes in. We just do a 1/2 dozen every morning for breakfast, and they come out perfect, soft in middle with hard whites that peel just like a hard boiled egg.

Be careful of microwaving eggs. They tend to explode easily.

All that is much more work than just throwing them in the IP. I don't bother cooling them and don't need to remove the shell under running water and they peel perfect every time.

Afterwards, I just rinse the pot and the steamer insert and it's all done.
