But its a "Microwave Omelet Cooker"

What a terrible idea. Why would you think that such a terrible idea could be well implemented.

Use a skillet, put some butter in it, and cook your omelet. It will be done faster than trying to use such a terrible piece of cookware.

Where did you see that an egg cooker makes tacos?

I see that there is some confusion, allow me to explain

1) I belong to the invitation-only Amazon Vine, which is an arrangement whereby I get free samples of stuff but I have to write reviews for the stuff I get. Every month there's a list of products I can choose from. Some are good stuff, but some are lackluster products whose vendors simply want to advertise. Vine reviews are clearly marked as such on Amazon, so there's no doubt.

2) Those microwave omelet cookers are for sale in the supermarkets in my area, and my boy had been trying to talk me into buying one for him so he could use it to carry tacos for his lunch. He developed this idea because the omelet cookers are precisely the size and shape of a standard taco shell. I will grant him that they do look as though they are designed for taco containment.

3) Recently Vine offered one, I thought of Zac's pleas and ordered it, intending it only as a gift for him. My review chronicles the outcome of our attempt to fulfill his dream of portable tacos.
