The cooker pot is a Stone Wave microwave cooker purchased from Ross for $4. It's simple matter of layering your ingredients into the cooker, placing the lid, and cooking in your microwave. The powerful microwave I use takes about 1minute 20seconds to cook the egg to over-medium doneness. My ingredients are a slice of Canadian bacon, 3 slices of Hormel deli meat (usually turkey or chicken), and (2) large brown eggs. If you use only (1) egg, then your ingredients will last much longer.
