Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Boiler I have a strict no-useless-gadgets policy. Especially when that gadget is big and takes up a lot of space. When I first heard of this product, I thought it was the most ridiculous kitchen appliance I had ever heard of (right up there with the microwaveable s'mores maker.)

My feelings about it have softened a bit. And I think my issues are valid: It doesn't really save a whole lot of time. It takes 9-10 min for hard eggs on high power?pretty similar to what I get with a pot of salted water.

And for the tons of wildly disparate reviews of this item, I'm guessing that your level of success depends largely on your microwave. Like most things, it takes some trial and error. Some people get perfect eggs. Others get an eggy explosion.

I am a sucker for the sleek egg shape. Very cute. But how are you supposed to get the top off of this thing when it's hot? A potholder slips right off. Maybe a silicone hot pad?

I guess this egg boiler would be useful for people who eat a lot of hard-boiled eggs as snacks. But it's not so useful for me. I usually need to hard-boil a whole dozen eggs for potato salads or deviled eggs.
