      Handy for breakfast parties

      My husband's mother gave us this egg boiler sometime last week as part of a massive housewarming and birthday present for my husband. She had had one herself for a number of months, and had been in the habit for years of saving time at the beginning of every week by boiling a couple of eggs for breakfast or lunch. She had found that the egg boiler helped considerably in this respect - she could turn it on and walk away from it, and come back to perfectly boiled eggs.

      I have been very happy with this machine's hard and soft boiling functions, but I have to admit that it takes much longer than boiling eggs in my usual way (about 7 minutes versus 12 minutes), but it is nice to plug it in and walk away. I have been less happy with the poaching function, however - though my poached eggs, admittedly, are not as perfectly shaped as the ones produced by this machine, take about 5 minutes. These poached eggs take about 20 minutes!

      I can imagine this machine might be of great use, however, the next time I have people over for breakfast - I'll crack the eggs or pop them into boil as soon as they walk through the door, and have Eggs Benedict ready within half an hour, I suppose!
