Got got this for my Low carb diet starting. I love this product. I used this to cook rice and eggs. Instructions say to poke the eggs with poker provided at the bottom of the plastic cup they provided. Initially I used it, but I did not like the way eggs use to come out the the hole. Then I tried without poking the eggs and those got cooked well. Even rice (50 grams) too cooked well. For rice I used to boil twice (Once light is off, need to pore water again to boil).
