This review is from: COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Silent Case Fan
Pros: You can't beat the price. Rebate came through. Great cheap option when working on a friend's computer. Not had one fail yet.
Cons: Not as quiet as some, but perfect for the price. Rebate process is a little weird, but it came through in the end.
Other Thoughts: I have purchased many Cooler Master fans on Newegg, and not had any problems. The rebates have always come through for me... just follow the instructions.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: West Bend 86628 White Automatic Egg Cooker
Pros: Does 4 poached eggs at once, and cookes them perfect. It has a thin metal insert with non-stick coating for this purpose, and cooks them evenly. Also, it will steam 7 "boiled" eggs at once; you have to pierce the tops of eggs with the included water measuring cup (it has a sturdy lance on the bottom). And, the shell peeling process is quick and easy...I'll never go back to regular boiling again!
Cons: Another review mentions trouble with the non-stick coating on the poached egg insert. I haven't had any trouble with it, but I do oil the surface before i put the eggs in... not so good if you are trying for less fat.
The "Done" alert is an annoying buzzing sound, but I guess that's the point of an alert. (Another cooker I tried has a high pitched "beeping" sound, but low enough volume to not be as annoying)
Other Thoughts: I Originally purchased the other one on Newegg instead of this one, because this one had lower reviews, and has a plastic dome. Later I saw this one on sale, so I had to try it out. I'm glad I did, because the poached egg results on this one are way better than the other one. I still use both units, when I want to boil more than 7 eggs at once. If I could only choose one unit, though, I would have to pick this one.
The included measurer/piercer is skinny and takes up little room in my kitchen drawer.
I did write a review for the other unit I bought, if anyone is interested in a comparison.
This review is from: Cuisinart CEC-7 Stainless Steel Egg Cooker
Pros: Holds 7 "boiled" eggs at once. Actually it steams them, and you pierce the tops with the included water measuring cup (has strudy lance on the bottom). I love not having any problem peeling the eggs afterwards.
Cons: Poached eggs not the best: Can only do 3 at a time. Who makes 3 poached eggs at once? 2 or 4 seem normal to me. Also the poached egg insert is made of thick plastic, so the tops of the eggs get done well, with the bottoms still a little raw.
Other Thoughts: Originally purchased this model, over the other one on Newegg because of the reviews and name brand recognition, and I liked the idea of a stainless steel dome, instead of the plastic one. I have since purchased the other one, so I can make 14 boiled eggs at once. I have to say I like this one for boiled eggs better (due to clean-up ease), but the other one seems a lot better for poaching. I left a review for that one as well.READ FULL REVIEW
