I followed the instructions and added some water in the inserts and cracked an egg in each one. I put the cover on and cooked it in the microwave in 30 second increments. Being my first time, I wanted to see its cooking progression. It took about 90 sends to get the eggs cooked the way I like.
I will mention that it did make popping sounds while cooking. However, with the lid on, there was no mess or eggs-plosion in my microwave. The eggs slid right out very easily and did not stick. The egg reminded me of the kind of egg in an egg mcmuffin. The yolk was well done but not overcooked. It was still moist. I put the egg on an english muffin with a slice of turkey and cheese. I toasted it to get the cheese to melt a little and it was delicious.
I decided to make a few more eggs to make turkey, egg, and cheese sandwiches for my long day ahead. I put these in Tupperware sandwich containers and the remaining heat from the egg and sandwich created a "steam" environment in the container. The bread was extremely soft but not soggy and the end result was so good! I ate my sandwiches for lunch and I was smiling with every bite.
The breakfast maker and inserts are very easy to clean and store. Be sure to get these when they become available again. I love it! This is perfect for busy moms and dads who barely have enough time to get a good breakfast. You can throw a quick sandwich together fast and pack it to eat on the road.
I do have a tip when putting the sandwich together. Put the egg directly on the bread after thoroughly draining of excess moisture from the water. If you put it between the cheese and meat, the egg slips around and falls out of the sandwich.
