Oh my, boys and girls. And I thought the Cuisinart cooker was the bomb. My new Krups egg cooker--with astoundingly high ratings on Amazon.com--is clear and easy to see, fast, spotless (the Cuisinart leaks terribly from a design flaw) and makes scruptious hard-boileds. Strongly recommended and only $27. Cool hand Luke and the boys would have loved this one.
