At first glace the Egg Genie looks like a simple kitchen appliance. And it is, but it’s a powerful appliance that can crank out eggs for years to come.

The Egg Genie is an electric egg cooker that comes in a compact and easy to operate kitchen appliance.  With this appliance, you can easily boil eggs without going through all of the trouble of heating up water in a pan and guessing whether the eggs are done or not.

This appliance is useful for preparing meals, snacks, desserts, and appetizers.

To get started, simply place the uncooked eggs into the Egg Genie Egg Cooker, then add the required amount of water using the provided measuring cup.

Once you’re ready, switch the unit on and the eggs will be cooked in just a few minutes.

As the water begins to heat up and steam, the eggs will be cooked by that steam. Therefore, you’ll have perfectly boiled eggs every time. The amount of water you add will determine cooking time.

Once all of the water evaporates, it’ll stop cooking and that will let you know that your eggs are done.
