Microwave spaghetti with this.

Make hard-boiled eggs with this.

Make microwave bacon with this.

They're small and cheap, and you can't argue with those amazon reviews. Makes great stocking stuffers.

Also, make microwave eggs.

Mmmm... now I want a bacon-egg-and-cheese croissant sandwich.

Look at the 1-star reviews.

I know it is crazy as "how hard can boiling eggs be" but for some reason, eggs cooked in this peel SUPER easy. Never have any issues:

u/leftcoast-usa · 5 pointsr/Cooking

For me it is. I've learned to make perfect boiled eggs in a microwave with this cheap hard boiled egg cooker. Been using them for years, almost every day.

u/peaceandmadness · 4 pointsr/Cooking

Yep there totally is.
I bought this so I could make hard boiled eggs in my dorm microwave.
It takes some trial and error to see what time works with the wattage of your microwave, but it's definitely worth it.
4 hard boiled eggs in 4 minutes is pretty good if you ask me.

u/ThePenguinGod · 3 pointsr/keto

I bought this little microwave egg boiler.

Very easy to us and zero cleanup!
Also the eggs come out consistently the same every time and don't require any skill/attention as they cook.

It can handle 4 eggs at a time and takes 7 min to boil them perfectly In my microwave. 5 min for soft, 7 min for hard boiled. And again, it's cooking in the microwave so you're not tied up at all.

u/awkwardtango · 3 pointsr/loseit

I second hardboiled eggs. If possible, buy something like this. It pretty much takes out any hassle of preparing hard boiled eggs, as you just stick them in the microwave.

u/MakeItWayne · 2 pointsr/lifehacks

Why wouldn't you just use a Nordic Ware Egg Boiler? I'm sure it's cheaper than a rice cooker, less mess, and does what it's built for perfectly.

u/not_some_throwaway · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Okay, technically, I'm in the barracks. I have my own fully stocked kitchen that makes cooking healthy on a budget extremely easy, but I had to get creative when I had to go somewhere for a month for some extra schooling.

I use this to cook brown rice (two bags for $3.70) and I bought a large bag of frozen broccoli florets ($5.49 - it was organic and HUGE). I'm eating canned albacore ($7 for 9 cans) tonight which I flavored with some Maggi sauce and hot sauce ($1 each -- those bottles will last me the entire time I'm staying here). On Sundays, I buy one rotisserie chicken ($7) which provides me enough protein for dinner until Friday.

For breakfast, I eat fruit and hard boiled eggs which I make in the microwave using this (I bought mine for $8). Lunch is usually another egg and a peanut butter sandwich with a piece of a fruit.

I could have saved money by bringing tupperware from home, but I didn't want to deal with packing those, and I managed to find cheap ones at the PX ($2.50 for a set of 4). My per diem is $18 and buy skipping the chow hall and spending a little extra time buying and prepping my food, I'm saving a lot of money.

It's a thing. It's genius. Two ways to do it:

  1. Find the right dish and microwave power/level/time and you can get nice poached eggs. This takes time and eggs, and cleaning supplies, to figure out as each micro is different.*

  2. THIS for in-shell eggs, soft- or hard-boiled. It's genius, clean, easy, creates less heat in the kitchen than using the stove, and works every time (you also need to figure out your time/micro level here so you'll waste some eggs as well at first).

    *I spent a lot of time working poached eggs in ramekins in a micro; in the end I wasn't satisfied with my set-up and went back to a pan for that style.
u/reginaldtato · 2 pointsr/tifu


Shit is a MIRACLE. 4 perfectly soft-boiled eggs in 7 minutes 10 seconds. BRO YOU ALMOST HAD IT YOU JUST NEED SOME GUIDANCE DON'T FEEL DOWN.

u/t_rexus · 2 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

It uses a device specially made for microwaving the eggs. Here is one:

I've never tried just straight up microwaving eggs but I've heard it goes horribly haha. This cooks the eggs by heating the water which steams them from below, while shielding the eggs from the actual microwaves because that would cause them to be overcooked or something.

u/aceMe007 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Yikes. Live and learn I suppose. Get one of this cooker. I love it. Perfect eggs in just 8 mins.

u/Coolmew · 1 pointr/Cooking

I started using one of [these] ( recently, and out of about 6 uses so far, it has made perfect hard boiled eggs every time. After it's finished, I put the eggs into a bath of ice water for a minute or two. Then I peel and it's as I've ever found peeling an egg to be.

u/jaskmackey · 1 pointr/YouShouldKnow

Well, there is the Eggies Boiling System, and then there is the Egg Genie, and if you don't like those, there's the Microwave Egg Boiler...

I'm not lifting like I should at all, but I've got this stupid thing that makes cooking and eating eggs easy af.

u/dave_hitz · 1 pointr/tifu

I do have an actual microwave egg cooker.

It has a metalic insert that protects the eggs from the microwaves. One time that insert fell out, and boy did I get a surprise.

u/dahamsta · 1 pointr/gadgets

NordicWare make cool stuff, I made a mate ship a pair (one spare, cos shipping) of their microwave egg boilers from the US to Ireland nearly a decade ago, just used one again this morning. Lovely hard-boiled egg sandwiches for lunch, no messing about with hot water and a timer. I have to go and play on their site now. :)

u/CDRnotDVD · 1 pointr/AskReddit

My mom has one of these, which means you can hard boil eggs in the microwave.

u/tdub697 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I use this

Gets them done in 7 minutes in the microwave. Way faster than on the stove for me, it takes at least that for me to get water boiling on my stove.

u/smartimp99 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Best investment I ever made. ~7 minutes for 4 eggs.

Microwave breakfast here:

More low fuss/no fuss ideas here:

Excellent (and cheap) microwave egg cooker for hard boiled eggs:

There are a zillion recipes for mug cakes (literally cooked in a coffee mug, in a microwave, in about a minute. I generally make them with a scoop of protein powder, an egg, a bit of cream, a bit of baking powder if I have it, then whatever for flavoring (I'm fond of giant spoons of baking chocolate plus a bit of sweetener.) Here's a pretty good collection to start with:

Make some chia pudding: 1/4c chia seeds, 1 cup liquid stuff (I generally use sugar free chocolate almond milk) plus whatever else you want. A scoop of protein. A raw egg. A blog of cocoa powder plus a bit of sweetener. Whatever. Let it sit overnight and it turns into something like a tapioca pudding, but low in carbs and high in nutrition. Very good.

If that'll get you started, by all means come back and ask for more.

Also, don't underestimate Google. It'll find a recipe for keto rhubarb, or keto eggs, or keto protein shakes or whatever. Also, keto + microwave + whatever will often work pretty well.

u/bc2zb · 1 pointr/Cooking

This very thing was going through my mind just yesterday. You can cook anything in a microwave, you just have to prep it correctly. There are a lot of microwave devices that do actually help cooking in the microwave. I would recommend a bacon cooker, a steamer, and an egg boiler. You don't have to get those items specifically, but those designs work well. Beyond that, wrap veggies in wet paper towels, and over season your food. Microwave cooking really kills flavor. Lastly, remember you can cook a lot of things by just pouring boiling water over them. Get a measuring cup, fill it with water, add a wooden chopstick (to prevent superheating), and make rice noodles!

I got this on sale for $4.99 and it hard boils eggs perfectly

u/sggrant323 · 0 pointsr/keto

I microwave eggs in their shell all the time. You are just doing it wrong. Try this.
