Electric Egg Cooker Review

like having eggs for breakfast you like
having eggs at any time of the day gee I
was just talking about protein and
another one of our videos eggs are a
fabulous fabulous source of protein and
they’re so easy and convenient bought
eggs you can take anywhere with you once
you’ve had them beautiful on toast with
some avocado you can have your scrambled
eggs you can have eggs in so many
different ways and they are a great easy
natural way to get that beautiful
protein source to keep you fuller for
longer this is the easiest way to do it
now I know a lot of people like how can
it be to throw through a few eggs in a
pan how can it be to throw a few eggs in
a pot and boil them up well the thing is
it’s not that difficult but this is even
easier and I am an electric egg cooker
convert I actually received one as part
of a gift with purchase many many years
ago and I have never cooked the world
egg in a pot since because they are so
great now this one takes it a next step
another step up because you can actually
poach eggs and make omelettes in this as
well now admittedly they’re not huge
sizes but if you want to just make two
poached eggs or if you want to make you
know a two egg omelet you can do that
easily in here so let’s just let me try
and help you to understand how this
actually works they’re not to be hard to
get your head around in the initial when
you first you know see this what you
have is basically a little cooker this
is a little heating surface in here and
what happens is that you add water to
this cooking surface using your
measuring cup here and how much water
you put in here and therefore into the
cooking area determines how long the
cooker runs for it automatically times
it it turns off with the sound of a
buzzer and the little light on the front
will turn off when your eggs are done so
if you want to have soft-boiled eggs
then you only put water in up to this
line if you want to have medium boiled
eggs you put water in up to this line
and if you want hard-boiled eggs
you take them up to this line now that’s
where it’s superior to putting them in a
pot because unless you’re super super
good at your timing then it’s pretty
hard to get the same result every time
we
your eggs this one is going to give you
that medium finish which is what I
prefer medium for my board eggs each
time it’s going to give you hard if you
want hard but it’s going to give you
soft if that’s your preference so it’s a
great way for you to get the same result
each and every time so with that in mind
let’s start by actually preparing it
we’re going to do some poached eggs but
I’m going to show you how you would also
do a you know your boiled eggs so at the
moment just pouring up to the medium
line which on the back also says poached
and omelette so I know it’s a bit tricky
for you to see but really
straightforward just pour that into the
cooking surface like so put that aside
and then we pop our little egg back on
you can see that that’s got room for one
two three four five six eggs in there
now if you’re going to do boiled eggs
you pop your little handle in like so
and that means that you can easily lift
the cooked eggs out because it does get
hot okay so you would put it in like so
put your eggs in upside down and let’s
just do it with two eggs for now
now this little plastic cup that I have
here can lid on the top goes over the
base of the measuring jug the reason is
there’s a little spike in there a very
sharp spike now the first time you do
this you think to yourself really what
do I do this for or is this going to
break my egg you press down on the top
of the egg like so and what it does is
it provides a little escape hatch for
the steam and for the moisture inside
the egg as the egg is boiling and what
does that mean it means you don’t end up
with cracked shells how often if you had
exploding eggs in your pan of water in
your pot of water so that stops that
happening so that makes it I mean I
guess like anything it’s not completely
failsafe but I have very rarely had eggs
do anything but cook perfectly in egg
cookers so we’re going to pop this in
here okay we’ll have just a said we’re
not going to do the poached friends
we’re just going to go ahead with these
ones so you just seal the loop like so
and then all you need to do is turn it
on I’ve got my power press the button on
the front note there that the light
comes on
so I actually did
the similar amount of water for medium
remember putting poached but it’s
actually the same as medium boil so that
this will take six minutes or so to get
this done
it depends depend on how many eggs you
put in because the amount of water and
the number of eggs in there determines
the heat and determines the sensor that
knows when the eggs are cooked don’t
overthink it it really does the thinking
for you if you just simply do that and
then get yourself going with it it’ll do
it for you which is what’s so fabulous
now whilst there’s a you’ll see the
steam starts to build up in there and do
be careful because it is hot it even
says on there hot steam so just keep
that in mind we’ve got a little handle
to help you pull it off when the time is
right what you’ve got here is a poached
egg tray and also an omelette tray so
how this works is you take that you
don’t put the handle in so when you want
to use the tray you still put the egg
base in but you don’t put the handle in
that little white handle that I you saw
me insert and then you put the tray
straight on top of the eggs of the egg
rack is that making sense so there will
be no eggs in there they’ll be no handle
in there the tray goes straight in
you’re going to crack your eggs you’re
going to put your poached eggs straight
in there on either side and then you’re
going to put it in and this is what’s
going to happen it’s going to boil that
water can we see well we can see the
condensation that’s starting to form on
the inside of the lid and what I can
actually see is the water boiling in
there so these eggs will sit there and
boil away for about six minutes or
thereabout and when they’re ready the
buzzer will go the light will turn off
and your eggs will be done

Electric Egg Poachers Buyers’ Guide

How long does an electric egg cooker take?

The amount of time an electric egg cooker takes to prepare eggs can vary. A standard egg cooker usually takes around 8 to 10 minutes. With an egg cooker, you won’t have to pierce any shells first as the eggs will not explode while they are cooking. You will get perfectly even cooked eggs with no hotspots in only 10 minutes. The biggest advantage of using an egg cooker is that you can use the time that it is cooking to do something else more productive, as you won’t have to worry about turning the heat off or catching the eggs before they explode. Most of the egg cookers are also dishwasher safe, so you won’t have to endure a difficult cleaning process.

How many eggs does an electric egg cooker hold?

The amount of eggs an electric egg cooker can hold varies depending on the type of cooker you are using. The most standard and smallest egg cookers hold up to 4 eggs at once and are the optimal choice for making breakfast for a small family. There are also small egg cookers that can hold up to 7 eggs on one layer. A two-floor egg cooker can cook up to 14 eggs at once, which is perfect if you have a lot of mouths to feed. If you cook a lot of dishes that involve eggs, an egg cooker with many spots is a good investment, as the amount of time you will save will be significant and noticeable. You can put these eggs to cook while you prepare the rest of a meal, and just remove them once the cooking time is finished.

How to hard boil eggs in an electric egg cooker?

Start by filling your water measuring cup according to how many eggs you are going to be cooking. Pour out some water into the center of the egg cooker reservoir. Put the egg holder into position on top of the base and put your desired amount of eggs into the egg holder. Cover the cooker with the lid and push the ON button. Let these eggs cook for a few minutes until you hear the sound indicating they are finished, then push the OFF button. Remove the lid and use oven mitts to lift the egg holder by the handle. Gently place the eggs into cold water until they are cool. Refrigerate the eggs or serve. Wash your cooker before storing or using it again.
