    Disappointed

    I got an electric shock from this cooker. It could have been my fault for using a metal fork. So disappointed. A warning should be included not to use metal while it is turned on. The spatula supplied is so flimsy, it wouldn’t even lift an omelet.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    5 Minute Chef

    I got this for Mothers Day yesterday, and I love it. It's only me here to eat, I have cooked in it four times and love it. People need to understand you do not latch it. It could cause problems read directions on the latching it. I fixed homefries and then fried two eggs and they turned out great. I fixed salmon patties and could not believe how moist they came out. The only thing is you have to shape them to the pan. Not the whole length.

    I also fixed an Onion burger in it but had to cut the sides off about 1/4 inch, but didn't matter, it was still delicious. It cleans up with ease the 1/4 in I cooked also and gave to my fur baby, she loved it. I liked to get another one just to do the potatoes in while I'm doing an omelet. I did a grilled a cheese, bought the oval Italian fresh bread so I didn't have to cut too much off, turned out great, can't wait to bake in it. I couldn't have gotten anything better for a Mother's Day gift.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    It explodes!

    My wife was making an omelet and followed the recipe book. In about three minutes it started making a hissing noise and exploded sending the omelet in her face. Why hasn't there been a recall on this product? People have been complaining about them for quite some time, and nothing is being done. Why?

    I would never recommend this product to anyone for fear they could get hurt using it. I took this back to the store where I purchased it and told them why I was returning it.

    I threw all my pans out and replaced them with Red Copper

    I hate to pick one thing out of all their products, and I love them all.

    But the 5 Minute Chef is FANTASTIC. I have talked many of my friends into buying one, especially if they are alone or just two people. I purposely save leftovers so I can add them to my chef to make the "frittata" delicious.

    Place all your leftovers in drop an egg on top and enjoy. It's great.

    Exploding cookware is dangerous

    It worked fine the first time I used it to prepare an egg omelet. However, the second time I used the 5 Minute cooker to prepare an omelet (same amount and recipe), the built up pressure in the cooker popped the cover open tossing the half-cooked omelet all over me and the countertop. I cannot believe there has not been a safety recall on this item. With the return window for the product expired, we are stuck with a cooker that we are afraid to use.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    For me, this unit was worth every penny!

    I just got this in the mail and thought I'd try cooking bacon just for the halibut, and the Red Copper 5 Minute Chef did an excellent job! I decided to try a large egg with bits of the bacon I just cooked along with some cheese. It was better than you can get at any restaurant! It's really easy to clean also! The cooking area is as slippery as silicone on a sheet of ice!

    I also took a tip from an Amazon viewer who suggested that it's best to unlock the unit before flipping when cooking eggs so it won't "explode" on you. You have to release the steam from this unit!

    I'm a widower and only need to cook for one, so the 5 Minute Chef is just what I needed!

    Good deal!

    I bought this to make omelets and am very pleased. I could never make one any other way. Best kitchen aid I have bought. I would gladly recommend it to anyone. I am going to try to cook a couple of small steaks this morning. I don't have a recipe, but think I can figure it out. I suggest they come up with a complete recipe book for this item.

    Happy with this machine

    I purchased this 5 Minute Chef because it looked easy to use. It is. I love this little cooker. It's great for one person, cooks quickly, and has easy cleanup. I wish there were more ideas for other recipes. So far I've cooked omelets, fried eggs, corn dogs, scrambled eggs and am very happy with the results. I purchased 6 for Christmas gifts this year. I would recommend it to friends.

    I love it

    I bought one because of the TV commercial. I took it home, and the first thing I made was scrambled eggs. They came out fluffy and well cooked. Then I tried making cornbread using a box of Jiffy Mix. I had to make it in two batches. They each came out nice and brown and tasty. I ended up giving it to my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas. They tried it and loved it. They are on back order from Amazon, so I have to wait ten days to get a replacement.

    I will be using it when it comes. I will be experimenting with making more things when I get my hands on one again.

    I bought this 5 Minute Chef omelet maker as a gift for our son for Christmas. The first time he used it, it explored everything everywhere when he opened it. He was burned, and the kitchen had to be cleaned up. I will be returning this product.

    Exploding omelet maker

    I would like to see the product removed. It is dangerous.

    It was a Christmas gift and Christmas morning I made four omelets, and each one exploded out. The first one hit me in the chest. It could have been my face. THIS IS A DANGEROUS PRODUCT.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
