If you love a good hearty breakfast, but don't love to stand over a hot stove this is a good alternative. This guy can make eggs all the ways you love them, poached/ hard or soft boiled/ omelette etc. I like to make egg salad sandwiches and do not have to babysit this machine while it cooks my eggs perfectly. Bonus points, it has a cute little jingle when the eggs are complete to notify you.
So my husband bought this and I thought he was a little nuts. But after using it few times, I think like it more than him.
