Being able to cook more eggs is definitely an advantage but a unit with a greater capacity can turn into a bulky appliance. And no one wants an egg cooker that occupies too much space. Fortunately, all the units selected come with a compact design. Therefore, they won’t occupy too much space on the countertop or in the kitchen cabinet. All models have similar dimensions, but if you want a unit that is not very tall you can go with Krups F23070.
A powerful appliance will always be more efficient. Of course, the performance can also be influenced by other factors, but the amount of electric power the appliance uses is very important. As you can see, the most powerful model is Cuisinart CEC-10 with a 600-watt heater, followed by Krups F23070 with 400 watts. The other models use 350 or 360 watts.
The capacity refers to how many eggs the unit can boil at once. From this point of view, the most generous model is Cuisinart CEC-10 because it can cook up to 10 eggs. The second place is occupied by Krups F23070 and Chef’s Choice 810 with cook maximum 7 eggs. Dash Rapid DEC005RD and Chefman RJ24-V2 can makeno less than 6 eggs each. Usually, the units that can cook more eggs are great for larger families.
Not all of us like boiled eggs with the same consistency. While some people like them soft, others may want them medium or hard. Fortunately, all our models are very versatile as they can cook different consistencies. And the best thing is that they boil eggs perfectly every time. For this, most models come with a measuring cup to add the right amount of water. The only exception is Chef’s Choice 810 that features a water pan with water level indicators.
Many manufacturers added an audible ready alert to notify you when eggs are done. This feature is very convenient because you don’t have to constantly monitor the cooking process. You can do something else in the meantime and save more time. All our models feature a buzzer and some of them even come with an automatic shut off feature for extra protection. Therefore, when eggs are cooked, the appliance shuts off by itself, without having to manually turn it off. The models that come with this feature are Dash Rapid DEC005RD and Chefman RJ24-V2.
All models come with a removable egg holding tray to place eggs on it. When the cooking process is done, you can simply take out the tray and put it under cold running water. Additionally, some appliances come with a poaching tray and/or an omelet tray for preparing eggs just as you like. Most manufacturers offer a measuring cup that usually has a piercing pin to poke holes in eggs before boiling them. Cuisinart CEC-10 also comes with 2 egg stands for more convenience.
The warranty is very important as it offers you peace of mind in case the product you buy has any manufacturing defects. Usually, the warranty covers any defects in materials and workmanship. The standard warranty for this type of products is 1-year, but some egg cookers come with a longer warranty. Cuisinart CEC-10 is covered by 3 years, while Krups F23070 features a 2-year warranty.
Step 1: Before placing eggs in the holding tray, it’s recommended to poke holes with the help of a pin. Usually, some models come with a piercing pin, so this problem is solved. The main reason to poke holes in eggs is to prevent the shell from cracking while cooking. In case you want to prepare eggs in a different way, you have to use stirred eggs.
Step 2: After all eggs are placed in the tray, you have to add a certain amount of water in the unit. Depending on the recipes you want to prepare, you should fill the measuring cup to the appropriated line. The models which don’t come with a measuring cup, such as Chef’s Choice 810, come with a water pan with water level indicators. In general, you have to add more water for making hard boiled eggs and less water for soft eggs.
Step 3: When you finish adding the water, you have to place the lid over eggs and turn the unit on. The cooking process may take more or less time, depending on the recipe. In general, when eggs are ready, you will hear an audible alert. Then, all you have to do is turn the unit off, take the eggs tray and ran eggs under cold water.
