Put eggs in microwave safe bowl with enough water to cover the eggs. Microwave on high until water begins to simmer/boil (10-15 minutes depending on microwave wattage and the volume of water in the bowl). Turn off microwave and place a plate over the bowl to hold in the heat. Leave covered bowl in microwave for 15-20 minutes.

My terrible experience:

I boiled the eggs in Microwave with some portion out of water. I put the timer 22 mins. When peeled it off, the egg exploded like a small bomb spoiling my Tee and The yellow yolk spilled all over the kitchen. A horrible experience, it's a bomb, IT'S DANGEROUS!!!
