Egg Genie – A Revolutionary New Egg Cooker?

by Theresa on October 25, 2009 · 6 comments

Egg Genie is an electric egg cooker that allows you to steam cook your eggs perfectly in a matter of minutes. I kind of laughed at first when I saw this. Come on now, really... how hard is it to cook an egg? After checking out a few video reviews, I do see a potential use for Egg Genie especially if you've got to cook up a large number of eggs in record time for a family meal or large gathering. I admit...sometimes it can be kind of tricky timing them just right. They either come out cracked with egg whites streaming out after you boil them or too soggy or over cooked etc etc. Ok maybe this new fangled egg cooker really can make our lives a bit easier in the kitchen.

Egg Genie Instructions

  1. Fill the measuring cup to the level needed for up to seven hard boiled eggs.
  2. Fill the bottom of the metal pan with the measured water then place the egg rack on top.
  3. Locate the piercer on the egg rack and pierce the pointed part of the egg.
  4. Place eggs on the rack, put the lid on, plug in unit.
  5. The instructions specify how long to keep the eggs in depending how soft or hard you want them and set the timer.
  6. Once they're done, unplug Egg Genie and let the eggs cool by either running them over cool water or soaking them in it.

Egg Genie Test Results

With soft, hard boiled and poached eggs it really did a decent job. The eggs were also easy to peel. Hard boiled eggs were cooked all the way through. Soft boiled eggs were cooked the way they should be with a nice soft yolk. The eggs all tasted great.

Overall, it's fairly simple to use. The instructions booklet shows you you how long to keep them in for soft or hard eggs as well as how to use the poacher attachment along with some recipes.  I've never heard of this before but they suggest using distilled water. This helps prevent discolored eggs or unwanted flavors from the tap water. Also don't worry about the egg breaking from piercing it. You just need to apply gentle pressure. You can also use it to steam up other things such as vegetables so it's nice you can get other use with it besides just cooking up eggs.

By the way, if you aren't interested in Egg Genie but want guidance for pan frying, boiling and poaching  your eggs perfectly, I found Bobby the Chef at BlogChef.net to show you how with his simple instructions!

I use the Egg Genie and have found using distilled water does not prevent the base unit from developing a large, brown stain from use. The stain is actually larger from the distilled water than it was from my tap water! This stain, however, clean up easily with white vinegar. maybe I need to add some white vinegar to the distilled water before using it in the base.

I just received my egg genie but there were no instructions enclosed. Can anyone e-mail me instructions? Esp. for poached and recipes please. Thanks

Here’s the egg genie instructions, Angel. It’s very difficult to read! I don’t know why they print them like that.

New take on an old idea – I remember my mother using an egg cooker that steamed the eggs, for hard or soft cooked.
Don’t remember poached.
I remember punching the little hole on the end of the egg before putting it in to the cooker.
That said, I have one of these egg genies and I love it.
