Microsoft Edge - need a good cookie delete addon

I use Microsoft Edge (default browser in Windows 11) and every week or so I go to a link to delete old & unwanted cookies by going to edge://settings/siteData

 

I have found that 'some' cookies will not delete

 

Doing a search at Microsoft I found two Edge addon programs

https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com/addons/detail/cookie-autodelete/djkjpnciiommncecmdefpdllknjdmmmo

and

https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com/addons/detail/cookieeditor/neaplmfkghagebokkhpjpoebhdledlfi

 

Has anyone used either of these addons?

Do either of them really work?

Both addons have a 'manual delete' option when at a specific web site

 

The 'editor' addon does not show the 'human' names, only the internal technical names... so I not only did not know what the cookie was, the addon did not delete the cookies I wanted it to delete

 

The 'autodelete' addon (in manual mode) shows the names in a way I can understand, and it deletes 'most' cookied for a specific web site... it does not remove www.google.com or www.rockandbrews.com so 'something' about those 2 sites is installing a cookie that I can't delete... I can live with that for now

I may, someday, use The ‘nuclear’ option and select the REMOVE ALL option at edge://settings/site and then log in to all the sites I visit to set fresh cookies
