MIXED EGGMOTIONS!

We used to have an older model which in our opinion worked much better than this plastic version. The eggs do cook well, impress with the poached but getting the poached egg out of the plastic trays in dreadful, having to pick them up with a tea towel. In comparison this new model isn’t better, it is worse. Like the timer buzzer, though it is certainly loud. Would I purchase or recommend this appliance, well no. Show details

Absolute dud due to 1 massive flaw!

Do not buy if you would ever use this Sunbeam product when others are sleeping. You can choose to cook and use your own timer or use the buzzer option on the device and guess what, it’s loud enough to wake your neighbours! Seriously what were they thinking!

To Sunbeam, if you had a fix for this issue, I have provided you two opportunities to advise what you propose. I am not taking time out of my day to call you. I will sort it myself! Show details

Cheaply made

The egg cooker hasn't been used much. It cooks reasonably well but even without much use the plastic cover has melted?? The whole machine looks really dirty now and can't be cleaned. Every time it's used it leaves some sort of residue on the plate and it looks like the plate is getting eaten away. It's time for it to go to the bin.

The egg tray will eventually crack

I actually like this tiny appliance - in fact I am on my second one; but only because I was *hoping* that the egg tray, on which the eggs sit, won't crack on me this second time around. Alas, it still has; and looking around here, I can see reviewers sharing photos of the same symptom. I could super-glue it, but just not sure about heating super-glue next to something my kids eat. Show details

Great asset to my kitchen!

I have been using my Sunbeam Egg Cooker for over 12 months now and I love it. I always hard boil my eggs 6 at a time and leave them in the fridge as a quick snack! I have done poached eggs in it and it takes just a minute or two they come out great! I have even done small omelettes in it, and they too comes out nicely, so quick so easily to clean, a great purchase. I have just bought 2 more for up coming birthdays for my kids! I highly recommend this product! My only complaint is, that the lines on the measuring cup fades too soon, I suggest placing a dot with some nail polish to mark the spot to make it last longer! Show details

Love it. Works every time

Using this mostly for boiled eggs. Turn out perfect every time.
Using it at least a couple of times a week
So much easier then boiling in a saucepan.
Love it. Can highly recommend Show details

2nd machine purchased - absolute rubbish !!!!

I bought a 2nd machine and this one is absolute rubbish. The buzzer has stopped working !!!! And water is going under the plate and leaking out the bottom of the machine. This is dangerous !!! I threw the machine in the rubbish bin straight away. I will not be buying another Sunbeam product any time soon.  Show details

Brilliant multi use appliance

I bought this to simply boil eggs, poaching is a bonus. When it arrived I was delighted to find that it also has a steamer rack which I can use to steam veg and dumplings or pork buns all of which come out perfectly. It's easy to set up and once you get used to how much water you need for each operation you can't go wrong. One word of caution, if you use the 'cook' option with the alarm it's loud enough to wake the dead, steer clear!  Show details ·  1

DISAPPOINTED

I had my last egg cooker, not a Sunbeam, for about 10 years. This egg cooker has lasted a little over 3 years, with much less use, so I'm very disappointed. I rarely used the poacher because when I cooked 2 eggs it seemed to cook 1 more than the other. I found that the lid was often hard to get to sit in its grooves. Last but not least, I had to throw it out as there was water getting in between the water tray & works underneath. Show details

GREAT KITCHEN ACCESSORY

This is my 2nd Sunbeam Poach and Boil. The first one I had and used for 10 years. The 2nd one is even better as it has a grill insert to steam veggies. Always have perfect boiled eggs and mini omelettes every time. Easy to clean and uses up minimum space on benchtop. Show details

Totally perfect

I am extremely satisfied with this product. It does what it says, is reliable, cooks eggs just the way it says, either soft, medium or hard, as well you can poach eggs or make an omelette. The poached eggs are perfect. Easy to clean too. Show details ·  1

Love it!

I ordered a Sunbeam Egg Poacher & Cooker & it is incredible! I don’t have the worry about messing up poached eggs ever again! It is very easy to cook eggs in, has a timer that sounds when they are done & is super straightforward to clean afterwards. Highly recommend! Show reply

Great but instructions poor

Cooks perfectly but only with buzzer setting. Boiling one egg soft on cook without buzzer after 15 minutes still cooking and rock hard egg. Instructions should state cooking without buzzer have to time cooking duration manually. Show details

Could you please tell me if the sunbeam egg cooker has an automatic off mechanism?

Hi Liz, unfortunately not, it would be very handy. If you use the buzzer feature though it buzzes when it runs dry, and believe me you will hear it go off!

Bought the cooker yesterday and just cooked 6 eggs (we have chooks that manage more than 12 a day!
Result for 6 Hard Boiled seems to be excellent ... but according to instruction "more eggs …less water" seems illogical! Any explanations?

Ellen

Yes that is exactly what happens! Follow the guide on the water 'flute' for the number of water per number of eggs and they will turn out great every time. This is my 2nd Poach and Boil. My first one last me 15 years! Enjoy!

It doen't make sesnse, but it works. Same if you want soft boiled. Ask Sunbeam if you don't get an answer

It has to do with the space needed for the steam as that's what is cooking the eggs. More eggs leaves less space at the top
