The perfectly microwaved boiled egg.


Making the perfect boiled egg isn’t easy–especially in a microwave, since eggs tend to explode under pressure. That’s why someone invented this beautiful, egg-shaped, yellow-and-white microwave egg cooker. The device actually fits 3 mid-sized eggs, which are placed on an aluminum tray. Put 130cc of water in the yellow part, insert the tray, place the eggs on it, close the lid (the white part), and pop it in the microwave. 8 minutes in a 500W microwave gets you soft-boiled, 10 minutes gets you hard-boiled.

  1. can you also get the perfect microwaved coffee? Maybe with a little compartment to make frothy milk too! mmm

  3. So, insead of putting 3 eggs in a pan of water and boiling for 3 minutes on the stovetop to get a soft boiled egg, I would have to measure 130cc of water, place eggs in a tray, place the tray in the device, attach the cover, put it in the microwave oven, set the time for 8 minutes, and wait 5 minutes longer than if I had boiled the eggs on the stovetop. Am I missing something here? Since when is substituting a simple procedure that takes 3 minutes for one that takes 8 minutes plus assembly time logical? This is the dumbest new bit of unnecessary kitchen clutter gizmo since the crappy Presto Pizzazz rotating pizza baking thingy my step mother was giving out for xmas a few years ago, an equally inane and unnecessary device.

  5. You can buy these at any walmart, k-mart, target, Cooking store or basically any place that sells microwaves…

    These things are so old… (and cheap! less than 3$ at walmart) that I can’t believe they made the news…

    Basically every cooking company you can think of makes one that looks exactly the same as this one…

  6. logical: Don’t forget the time it takes for the water to come to a boil on the stovetop… 8 minutes in the microwave isn’t too bad.

  7. the ones on sale in Walmart require you to remove the shell etc…
    then you have to wash the yolky plastic afterwards.

    Also cooking on the stove can be impossible to correctly get your egg cooked to right amount

  8. Aluminum (or other metals) absorb a lot of the energy. If the metal has pointy parts, they will act as antennas and cause arcing. Smoothly rounded metal won’t arc. I suspect the aluminum absorbs the energy and channels heat to the water at the bottom. Aluminum would be a good heat conductor for that and the eggs would get steamed.

  9. logical: yes you are missing the fact that many Japanese living in the cities have very small apartments and may not have a stove top, or at best a totally useless one. Most people however do have a microwave oven.

  10. metals in mircowaves are perfectly safe as long the metals do not ever touch each other, when they do thats when things blow up!

  11. Why in God’s name would you want to use 500w of energy for 10 mins, when boiling water can do the same job in 3 mins using far less energy – stupid….. I suppose laziness, gimmicks and stupidity reign.

  13. The big question is: How does it work?
    I think the aluminum is used to shield most, if not all, of the eggs from microwave radiation. Thus the microwave ist just used to heat the water to boiling point, with the 100C water steam actually cooking the eggs. The eggs are therefore not cooked by the microwave but indirectly via the water steam.
    There are systems out there which cook eggs directly with microwave radiation, but they depend on you putting the egg white and yolk into a plastic cup (which is in XXXL egg-shape for show-effect).

  15. 500W for 10 minutes isn’t a whole lot of energy. You will use more than that boiling water and cooking an egg on a stove. Keep in mind that an electric kettle uses around 1000W, and a small stove element, 1200W.

  16. You also have to keep in mind that for 500W microwave power you’ll need at least 1000W electrical power from the mains. The conversion of electricity directly to heat is bloody efficient, thus a specialised egg cooker should be the ecologists choice. If you take m. salmonella into the equation, the situation may change…
