Insta Egg is a unique cooking product that is designed to prepare eggs in a variety of ways. Its construction allows consumers to quickly create scrambled, poached and boiled eggs using only this device, some water and a microwave oven. Several inserts are included to enable the variety of preparation options, and it cleans up quickly thanks to the easily separated parts. A steaming area for vegetables and a bonus egg scrambler help to enhance the already incredible versatility of this package.
The cost of Insta Egg is $14.99 plus $6.95 shipping, for a total price of $21.94. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Insta Egg being discontinued. Insta Egg may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
The key to the effectiveness of the Insta Egg is its innovative design. Water in the base is heated by the microwaves to produce steam. However, the steam is not directly used to cook the eggs. Instead, its heat is transferred to the food through a special chamber that distributes this energy evenly throughout its inner area. The steam itself is allowed to escape through a small hole in the top of the product, or redirected for further use in the included steaming attachment.
A major benefit of the Insta Egg is that it can be used for multiple types of egg preparation. Soft and hard boiling are both possible, as is the cooking of poached and even scrambled eggs using one of the many helpful inserts that are included. It also has an optional steaming area attachment that can be used to cook vegetables or other items, while the water chamber can double as a handy rice cooker.
Steam is one of the cleanest forms of heat transfer available for cooking purposes. Users of this device will not need to use fats like butter and oils either.
Washing this product is easy. It can be separated into its components and placed in the dishwasher with a normal load. In cases where a quicker washing is necessary, most parts can also be swiftly wiped clean with a normal cloth.
One of the more interesting aspects of this offer is the addition of a handheld powered egg scrambler. This nifty little device looks like an ice cream scoop, but with the scoop centered to hold an egg upright. In the middle of this area is a sharp point that can penetrate a few centimeters into the egg. When the motor is engaged, this point will spin and quickly pulverize the contents inside. Users can skip any hand mixing needs because the egg will be ready right out of the shell.
One of the few downfalls of this product is that it requires customers to own a microwave. While this is far from unreasonable, it may be off-putting to consumers who have trouble accepting the idea of eggs being prepared within microwaves.
The Insta Egg can replace a large number of cooking tools, potentially saving customers a ton of cash. No more pots, pans, spatulas or burners are required to accomplish any number of egg preparations if this device is an option instead. Its usefulness extends beyond eggs too, as it can prepare other things like rice and vegetables. Even more savings are possible thanks to the bonus scrambler that customers will receive when ordering this product.
Preparing eggs in virtually any manner can be done quickly and easily with the Insta Egg. Simply interchanged parts take little time to deal with, and cooking time is reduced to the few minutes required of most microwave tasks. The ability to clean up with a wipe or in the dishwasher rounds off the ways in which this device can eliminate wasted time.

Tried the InstaEgg. I followed all instructions correctly. My microwave unit is a 1000 watt model so I nuked for 4 mins instead of 3.5 as recommended in the instructions for a 1200 watt unit for soft-boiled eggs. First of all after pulling Instaegg from microwave and allowing the top to cool it's a two man job to hold on to the still hot bottom with mitts while another person unscrews the top. The first egg was so close to raw I put it in a pan to fry. Placed Instegg back into microwave for an additional 3 mins. Two man job again to unscrew top. This time results were inconsistant. One of the remaining eggs was just right while the other two were overcooked for a soft-boiled egg. All in all it seems to me that Instegg is pretty much useless considering it takes two people to operate properly and 6 or 7 minutes to cook anyway. Give me a pan of water and a three minute timer and I'll make the perfect soft-boiled egg every time. Placed Instaegg neatly back into box and placed in trash. OK you got me for 10 bucks but you will not fool me again.
