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.
