Ensure the side of the egg with the hole is placed facing upwards.
Place the lid onto the base and then press the power button on the front of the base. Once the water has evaporated the unit will power off and the indicator will turn off. As soon as this happens remove the eggs from the base using the egg tray and rinse under cold water to prevent over cooking.
