I LOVE LOVE LOVE this egg cooker! I wanted one that does a dozen at a time since I often bring deviled eggs to get-togethers. There is no other one out there that does that many at one time. Not only that but this appliance cooks different kinds of egg dishes, such as poached, omelettes, etc. I found out that I need to clean the metal surface with a soft cleanser (what you would use on the newer stove tops). When we use just dish soap it isn’t enough but maybe that is from our hard water.
