This is the best cooking device I have bought, I use it a lot, especially for soft boiled egss, the directions state 4 mins, I find no more than 2 minutes for any amount placed in it is great for soft runny, 3 mins for med, 3.5 for hard. Highly recommend as it is so easy to use and clean and saves using a heap of other Kitchen items, do yourself a favour dont be without one of these.
Apart from the fact that it looks well-finished and just nice, it does get the job done. So far, this has been my wife's favourite cooker and she usually uses it everyday for our delicous meals: soup, porridge, rice, beef stew .. you can name it. Would definitely recommend it
