A device that’s supposed to cook your meals for you in five minutes? There’s more, you don’t need oil or a pan.

That’s the claim of the Red Copper 5 Minute Chef . It’s supposed to make everything from eggs, beef, even dessert.

But will it really live up to the claim? We tried it all!

But don't let the name fool you; everything didn't take just five minutes like the infomercial shows.

But the recipes are clear.

We made a chicken breast in 12 minutes, three minutes for eggs and for dessert a lava cake with a surprise Snickers? That took five minutes.

So how does the Red Copper 5-Minute Chef rate on our Bull-No Bull Meter?

I'm going to have to say it's No Bull!

I have to say I didn't expect it to work so well -- it really lived up to its claim.

We bought it at Bed Bath and Beyond for $40, so not bad at all.

Just don't overfill it- we learned the hard way.
