I bought this a while back so my 12 yo daughter can make eggs from the "as seen on tv" isle at my local store. I just saw one on QVC and remembered the one I bought and decided to try it myself because I never have used it. Well I put in 7 just gathered yesterday eggs to try it out and 6 out of 7 came out perfect. the one that didnt was still fine just not a pretty peal. After it buzzed telling me it was done I immediately put the eggs in a bowl of ice water and then peeled. I ate 2 immediately yummy. and threw 7 more in they cook so fast it takes no time at all This is GREAT for 7 quick boiled eggs for whatever like salads, tuna salad chicken salad ect. Or if like me to dip in salt and munch on.
