To use the egg side only, fill the measuring cup with the correct amounts of water. (One side is for boiled eggs, one is for poached eggs.) Pour the water into the basin at the bottom. For boiled- Place 1-4 eggs in the tray with the four holes. Use the sharp thing at the bottom of the measuring cup to pierce the egg shell. Place the lid over top, and hit the 'egg' button. When the light on the button goes out, remove the lid. For poached, grease the pan. Spray/ butter, whatever. DO NOT rely on the non-stick. The thick black tray for boiling eggs goes on first. With the egg in the greased pan (scrambled or whole) place the pan into the unit. There are four plastic pieces in the boiling tray to show you where it goes, the handles aligned. The round tray, with the square holes in it, can be used to warm pre-cooked meat.This is optional, and that tray goes on top. Place the lid over the top, and press 'egg'.

WARNING: this cooks by steam, and any remainder can cause burns. Be careful when removing the lid. Same goes for the product. The boiled eggs should not be touched directly.

To make an egg sandwich, load the egg side and the bread/english muffin/bagel into the toaster. Press the 'egg/toast' button BEFORE starting the toaster. The toaster will start on a timer so that the egg and toast will be done at the same time. When the toast pops up, you are good to go.

Note: there should be no water afterwards, maybe a little oil if you cooked meat. Hard water residue is easily removed with vineger and a paper towel.

1. Your toast n egg should have come with a small plastic cup. On the sides you will see dash marks which indicate how cooked you would like your eggs. One side is specifically for making the egg in the pan (or sandwich). Fill water to the desired marking....this should be about 2 1/2 tablespoons (from memory)
The part that looks like a waffle pattern (with holes) is where you put your precooked meat to be warmed.
2. For making a sandwich, put the english muffin in the toaster area. Add the desired amount of water to the egg cooking side. Spray your pan with nonstick spray and crack your egg in the pan. Mix up a little to break up yolk. Place meat on the meat warming part and place over the egg.

3. Cover with clear plastic dome.

4. Push down the toaster arm. Then press the button egg/toast.

The english muffin will begin to toast and the egg will cook......when the toaster portion pops up...bother will be done.

Enjoy!!

Back to Basics egg toaster


My egg cooker stopped working, so I took the unit apart. To answer your question, I did not see a fuse inside. One way to tell if it is a power problem to the mother board is to observe whether the LEDs light up or not after pressing the switches. If the LEDs don't light, there could be something wrong with either a power component or a power connection.

In my case, the toaster worked fine. Usually these problems are caused by loose connections. Sometimes it is not obvious where the loose connection is. All I did was loosen and re-connect the wires to the egg cooker and also to the board they came from. I also shined up the toast slide button copper connections with a nail file. This was just a precaution, since the toast slide button had to be working (i.e. it still toasted, just didn't cook an egg).

So far, it seems to be working, but time will tell. If the problem was due to something other than a loose connection, it will happen again.
