Egg Pod is a container that's made to help people effectively cook hard-boiled eggs in the microwave. It's purported to be able to boil a small handful of eggs in just eight minutes, and then aid you with separating the eggs from their shells. This white container, which is shaped similarly to an egg itself, is made of BPA-free plastic and is dishwasher safe. It's also been designed to take up little storage space in your kitchen.
The cost of Egg Pod is $14.99 and the shipping is FREE!

To use your Egg Pod, you'll need to first add water to the bottom half of the device, after you've separated it from the top (which will serve as the lid). When you add water, it's best to fill the bottom half of the container about half full.
Next, place a few eggs that you want to boil in the water you've added to your Egg Pod. Only add as many as you can fit comfortably, which will typically be three to five eggs, depending on their size. If an egg has to sit on top of another one, you've likely filled your container too full.
Once your eggs are inside your pod, add the lid and cook the entire thing in the microwave for eight minutes. While your eggs are inside, a convection effect will be created. This will cause the steam that's produced by the water within to circulate towards the top of your device and cook your eggs quickly and evenly.
When your eight minutes of cooking time is up, pull your pod out of the microwave and shake it for about 30 seconds. As you do so, you can expect the textured interior to separate your eggs from their shells.
Finally, when you've finished the shaking process, open up your container and pull the eggs out. The detached shells should easily slide right off the whites. Following that, you'll be able to serve (or eat) your boiled eggs in the way that you normally would, such as by adding them to a sandwich or salad.
The Egg Pod is about the same size as a porridge bowl with a lid would be, making it a compact device for you to store in your kitchen. You'll be able to store it in virtually any cupboard without worrying about it crowding out your other dishes, and it'll fit into even the smallest of microwaves. Plus, if you want to bring your pod along with you on a trip, you likely won't have difficulty finding a few inches of room for it in your suitcase or overnight bag.
The potentially harmful chemical compound that's known as BPA is still found in some plastic kitchenware today, but it's not present within these Egg Pods. As a result, by using yours, you can rest assured that you won't be exposing yourself or anyone else you cook eggs for to toxicity.
Each entire pod is dishwasher safe, which means that if you've got a dishwasher you can use, you'll never have to wash your pod out by hand. However, it's perfectly fine to do so if you don't have a dishwasher or don't want to turn it on to clean one dish. If you do use your dishwasher to clean your pod, just remember to separate the top and bottom pieces and position them as you would a couple of bowls before you do so.
Egg Pods are white with yellow accents, and as mentioned, their shape resembles that of an egg. Not only does that make them more interesting to look at than standard dishes, but if you've got tons of plastic dishes in your kitchen, their appearance will help you remember which one's for eggs.
Eggs are often considered a breakfast food, but many people will find that their Egg Pod is useful at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact, you may want to use your pod three times a day, which is fine as long as you wash it out between uses. If you need to make a quick breakfast, you can boil some eggs and plop them in your mouth as you run out the door. Then, when you have more time at lunch or dinner, you can use your pod to help yourself prepare egg salad sandwiches, deviled eggs or sliced eggs.
An Egg Pod will be able to perform all of its functions without the addition of batteries. Your microwave will help it cook eggs, and then the shaking action required afterward is completely human-powered. That means you won't have to remember to keep a spare set of batteries on hand in order to use this device to boil eggs whenever you'd like.
If you've got elementary school-aged children, you may not trust them to boil eggs on the stove yet, as their dexterity and knowledge of safety practices just may not be up to snuff. That being said, you'll likely be able to trust them with an Egg Pod, as long as they're using it with adult supervision, as it won't involve a potentially hazardous pot of boiling water. Using one of these pods may give them confidence and encourage them to spend more time in the kitchen, so they'll be ready for boiling pots as they approach their teens.
It would be nice if each of these pods could be transparent, so one could see what was happening to the eggs inside, but all of them are actually made of solid plastic. Therefore, if you want to take a look at your eggs during the boiling process, you'll need to stop your microwave and pull off your pod's lid.
Depending on the exact size of the eggs you want to boil, your pod may hold as little as three eggs at a time. On the other hand, if you were to boil eggs in a pot on your stovetop, you might be able to fit a dozen eggs into the pot at once. Due to your Egg Pod's size, if you need to boil a dozen or more eggs, you'll need to go through a few different rounds of boiling.
This device has been designed to cook eggs only, so you should never try to cook anything else inside it. Chances are, other food items won't cook properly within it, and the textured dome inside the device may even end up damaging the food.
