Egg Pod

Rate this product

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.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Egg Pod is $19.99 and the shipping is $6.95 for a total price of $26.94!

This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Egg Pod being discontinued. Egg Pod may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Add Water to Device

    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.

  2. Place Eggs Inside

    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.

  3. Transfer to Microwave

    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.

  4. Shake Container

    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.

  5. Pull Off Shells and Serve

    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.

Egg Pod Commercial

Features

  • Compact

    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.

  • BPA Free

    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.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    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.

  • Yellow and White

    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.

Positive Points

  • Useful for Any Meal

    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.

  • No Batteries Required

    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.

  • Good for Kids

    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.

Negative Points

  • Can't See Inside

    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.

  • Won't Hold Tons of Eggs

    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.

Warnings

  • Only for Eggs

    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.

Eggs Started to Blow Up

We bought two Egg Pods, used one for a number of months, then the eggs we cooked in that Egg Pod started blowing up during cooking. So, we tried using the unused Egg Pod, and so far so good. We thought perhaps we're using extra-large or jumbo eggs, and that was the problem. We thought perhaps we needed to warm the eggs up a bit before cooking by soaking them in cold water first. Is it that the aluminum parts have corroded? We don't know and would like to know.

Don’t Buy

Eggs came out horribly like the inside of a golf ball. Sent back and since they don’t pay for returns it cost me $50 (bought 3, 1 for myself, 2 as gifts) to send them back. This product and company are a rip-off!

BURNED UP MICROWAVE

Used Pod several times on problems. Loved it. Last night microwave caught on FIRE. MELTED plastic roller ring and melted a spot in the glass tray. Microwave and Egg Pod are in the trash. A new microwave will be here today. Wish I had read the reviews first.

DO NOT BUY! WILL WRECK YOUR MICROWAVE

This product ruined my microwave. I had a new microwave. I had only used it for a month. No problem. After using the Egg Pod I tried to make popcorn. It wouldn’t pop it. Then tried heating up a plate of leftovers, the same thing happened it took forever and was only partially heated. This product should not be sold at all. I can do the same thing with a pot of boiling water.

Do not Buy!

We burned up two microwaves using the Egg Pod! The first time, we thought it was a coincidence. The second time, we knew it was the Egg Pod. Both times, it would completely cook the eggs, but after taking eggs out, the microwave just stopped working.

Needs one Additional Hole!

It's a good product but it needs one additional hole to be placed in the metal of the base part just below the top of the base. The reason it needs that hole is for emptying all the water from the base part after use. Without that additional hole it is impossible to get all of the water out of the base part after use. All you can do is turn the base part upside down and shake it -- but that doesn't get all the water out. No similar problem for the top part.

Hello. I had the same issue. But I realized you have to pull the yellow gasket up and off, then you can remove the aluminum inside. It's still melting in the microwave though: (.

Destroyed my Microwave!

Used it twice with no issue. Loved it. The idea is awesome. But, the third time I used it my microwave wouldn't come back on. It destroyed my microwave.

Don't Bother

Worked good first couple of times. Then the yellow ring came off. Couldn't get it back on the way it came. Managed to get it on good enough to use it again. Then used it one more time. Both egg pod and microwave are in the trash right now.

Works but not Worth Buying a new Microwave

Used it a few times with no problem. Decided to use it to make eggs for grandchildren to dye for Easter. Ruined my microwave. Had to purchase a new one. Sad to say had to trash the Egg Pod.

That sounds as if it would not be an appropriate use of the Egg Pod because you want to keep the shells unbroken.

No, just don't shake the eggs inside the container after cooking and the shells should be fine, but if it trashes your microwave would suggest it isn't appropriate for anything other than ripping off the customer foolish enough to buy it.

Read Before Buying

I absolutely loved this Egg Pod. Does exactly what it says. The easiest way to make hard boiled eggs. Noticed that every time I used it though, my microwave would get extremely hot. Next use, it made the lights in the microwave flicker, make a weird noise and that was it. My $450 GE Profile no longer works!

Clean?

I understood the instructions to say take all parts apart and wash in warm, soapy water, which I did. Then I was unable to reattach the yellow seal back to the rim of the bottom part and could not even try the egg pod out! After reading so many reports of damage to microwaves, I am now afraid to try it anyway!

I just had my microwave installed a week ago and put the egg pod in my microwave. After 10 seconds it caught fire and cracked something on the side of the microwave.

Blew my microwave up this week also!

Posted: 22 Feb 2021 Rich Redwine

Used the Egg Pod three times. I was skeptical because of the aluminum parts inside but decided to try it. Followed the directions exactly every time. The third time, it caused the door of the microwave to melt, although the eggs were fine. 12 eggs divided by $120.00 for a new microwave equals ten bucks an egg. The microwave was new the day before Thanksgiving, 2020. Coincidence? Maybe. I'll go back to the stovetop, ice bath, and then placing eggs in a sealed container with water, and shaking. She'll the eggs just fine.

Egg Pod is a FAKE, DO NOT BUY

I purchase two Egg Pods from where I work at (Lowe's), I used one of the pods for the very first time on 1/16/2021 follow the direction as instructed to the tee, with in the first minute it caused my microwave to spark and smoke with a wire burning smell, I took them back to the store for a full refund and reported this the company and only thing they said was sorry to hear that, I also reported this product to the BBB.

Egg Pod Purchase

Received my Egg Pod today 1-14-2021 and tested it. Followed instructions as written, everything went as advertised. I give the Egg Pod A-, and the only reason may be my fault and the shaking of the pod to loosen the egg she'll. Over all I am very satisfied with the Egg Pod and it didn't burn up my Microwave, tested it also after using the Egg Pod.

Melts in Microwave

I have tried 2 sets of the Egg Pod. Keeps melting on the bottom in my microwave, cooks eggs too tough. I ended up making them the old fashioned way and they came out much better. I will put up with peeling them the right way. Egg Pods do NOT WORK RIGHT!

I totally agree with you this product is not worth the money and it should be pulled off the shelve, and the company should be charged for sell defective products.

Causes your microwave to overheat and shut off. Contains metal inside and it's hard on microwaves.

Burned Electrical

Used once. Followed directions to the letter. Placed in microwave for 9 minutes as directed. Eggs came out as advertised. HOWEVER, microwave smelled of burned electrical wiring and the top of the oven was burning hot to the touch. Wiring inside microwave may have been compromised due to excessive heat. Who thought up the idea of putting METAL inside a microwave? And who allows such garbage to be Marketed?

Everyone here should contact the BBB. This thing is one tragic fire away from killing someone. Can you say CLASS-ACTION LIABILITY LAWSUIT?
DO NOT BUY!

Threw Out

Purchased Egg Pod. Really excited for it to work. Ended up throwing it out.
Following instructions, 1 out of 4 eggs broke. The other eggs we're not finished cooking at the 9 minute time limit. We adjusted the times in two more tries. Nothing work. Considering the egg breakage, the eggs that had to be thrown out as they we're not completely cooked, the time necessary to complete all the steps, we could have just used our saucepan, boiled water, and completely cooked 10 eggs at one time. Complete waste of money.

It's too bad you didn't thank of that before you blew your money. People are such suckers. "Oh, how I hate watching water boil. I need another gadget just to cook eggs in the microwave." "Warning: Do not put metal in the microwave oven." "Oh, why would they make it with metal parts if it hurts the microwave? I'll try it anyway. Oh, my microwave is ruined. I should have heeded the advice and not wasted money on this crap.".

Egg Pod Review

The Egg Pod by Emson is the best item I've ever purchased for cooking. Four eggs, I measuring cup (included), 9 minutes in the microwave, let sit 2 minutes, run cold water over the eggs for 2 minutes, drain, shake a few times, and perfectly peeled eggs every single time. I've made dozens of eggs in my Egg Pod and they come out perfectly EVERY time. I'm 78, so I've purchased a lot of cooking items in my time. This is the very best thing I've ever bought! I love it! I give it two thumbs up! 👍👍.

Works as Advertised

I got mine at Lowes ($19.99) took it home, followed the directions, and within 15 minutes, had the perfect hard boiled egg. Clean up was easy too. Yeah, it only makes four eggs at once, but how many can you eat at once? It's great for a quick breakfast, snack, or egg salad sandwich for one.

Dangerous to Microwave Ovens

I followed the instructions exactly and then put the Egg Pod in my microwave. As soon as I started the microwave, I smelled burning and heard popping. I immediately stopped my microwave. I rechecked the pod and the microwave and then started the microwave again. Again, I heard the popping sound and smelled the burning. Immediately, I stopped the microwave. If I had walked away, instead of standing by my microwave, I might not have stopped the microwave in time to save it from being ruined like others have stated happened to their microwaves. I would sure like my money back for the 2 Egg Pods that I bought. I would also like to know why some people can use the Egg Pod in their microwaves and others end up with broken microwaves. Can the Egg Pod company explain this?

How do you Clean It

It has a metal insert on the top and bottom. The water doesn’t drain from the bottom part. Is there a way of removing it to clean it?
