Features we looked at to choose our top egg cooker 2017
#1 How many eggs can be cooked at one time
We have looked at how many eggs can be cooked at a time but that’s not to say that more is better. For us we didn’t go for a bigger cooker as our no 1 choice because a lot of people aren’t looking to cook a dozen eggs at a time, if you are we’ve offered reviews for you but if you fall into the average person that might only cook 2 eggs at a time for one meal but might cook more occasionally then the majority of egg cookers in this list covers you.
#2 What other accessories are offered
We have looked at the things people are looking for in a good egg cooker because people want the accessories to not only be able to boil their eggs but also to be able to poach their eggs too. Even making small mini omelettes are a great extra to be able to do. Having extra options available makes it a more versatile piece of equipment but you don’t want to have to pay a lot of extra money for this.
Obviously most people are watching the money they spend and you want as much as much as possible the money paid. An egg cooker isn’t a necessity but when time is limited in a busy household useful kitchen equipment can pay for itself and I think you will find an egg cooker falls into that category

Top 10 best egg cookers to buy in 2017
#1 Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker
The Dash Go Rapid Egg Cooker is our no 1 choice in egg cookers, it is a 6 egg cooker which is a perfect size for a half a dozen pack of eggs. It comes in a range of colours so you can choose a colour that fits in with your colour scheme.
This egg cooker can steam your eggs to hard, medium or soft boiled consistency. It also comes with a tray that you can use to make a small omelette and an egg poacher tray that can poach 2 eggs.
So how do you know how long to cook your eggs to get them the way you want them? In with your egg cooker you get a water measuring cup with the levels marked on it where you should fill with the water required to cook your eggs to the right level of boiled that you enjoy.
So if you want hard boiled eggs add the correct amount of water to the water tray in the base and add the egg tray, before adding your eggs, pierce the shell with the egg piercer in the bottom of the water measuring cup then put on the lid and press the on button. When the alarm sounds it will switch off the heater but you need to switch it off at the button to stop the alarm. Place your eggs into some iced water to stop the cooking. Your eggs should be easy to peel after being steam cooked in this egg cooker.
#2 Elite Cuisine EGC-007 Maxi-Matic Egg Poacher & Egg Cooker with 7 Egg Capacity
The Elite Cuisine EGC-007 Maxi-Matic Egg Poacher & Egg Cooker with 7 Egg Capacity comes in a variety of colours and sells for a low price. It can cook up to 7 eggs at one time in this 7 egg cooker, you can have them hard boiled, medium boiled or soft boiled.
They aren’t boiled in the sense that we put them in water and boil the water for a set time, in these machines water is boiled in an enclosed space with the eggs on a tray, the resulting steam circulates around the eggs and the heat and steam cook them.
This machine also comes with an omelette tray and a 2 egg poacher. The poacher tray and the egg boiler tray have handy little loop handles on the side to make it easy to remove from the cooker and the boiled eggs can easily be placed under running water on the tray or the tray placed into icy water in a bowl.
The egg cooker comes with a measuring cup so you know how much water to use for the right consistency of eggs you require and it has a pin in the bottom to pierce your eggs before cooking. This machine has a see through lid so when you are making poached eggs or an omelette you can see how they are cooking.
#3 Dash Deluxe Egg Cooker
The Dash Deluxe Egg Cooker is for the person that likes to do a lot of eggs at once, although you can still do as little as 1 if you wish. You can do up to 12 eggs at a time in this 12 egg cooker and you can poach up to 7 eggs or make mini omelettes in 1 go and it has a omelette tray that is larger than the standard size egg cookers.
It works in exactly the same way as smaller egg cookers, you can have your eggs soft, medium or hard boiled but to get all of the eggs into this cooker they stack in a double decker way. On the base egg tray you can do up to 8 eggs then you place on the middle stacker ring which is see through plastic and rises to the height of the first layer of eggs.
There is a smaller tray which sits on the top of the middle stacker and you can load another 4 eggs on that then the normal see through dome lid goes onto that. There are 2 poached egg trays, 1 holds 4 eggs and 1 holds 3 eggs, they sit on the egg trays in place of the eggs, the 4 tray on the bottom part and the 3 tray on the upper deck.
There is a water measuring cup which gives you the right measure of water for the consistency of egg you want to cook. If you need to prepare a lot of eggs for a party or for a weeks worth of boiled eggs to store in the fridge this would be the perfect egg cooker for you.
#4 Cuisinart CEC-10 Central Egg Cooker
You can use the eggs to eat immediately or let them cool off if you want to store them for another day or if you want to make an egg dish like devilled eggs.
The egg cooker stacks the eggs to cook 10 by having a tray on the bottom which holds 7 eggs and then it has a small shaped 3 egg tray that lays on top of the 7 eggs and will hold another 3 eggs, the stainless steel dome lid which has vent holes in the top, is tall enough to sit over the top for cooking.
You can cook your eggs in a soft boiled, medium or hard boiled way using the egg trays and there is an omelette tray and a poached egg tray which has 4 compartments.
You can poach your eggs as soft as you wish or you can cook them firmer and make mini omelettes, just add any herbs and cheese or any other things you like in your omelettes but the ingredients need to be pre-cooked beforehand. You can also use the omelette tray for egg white omelettes if you’re on a lower fat diet. This is a great egg cooker if you like to cook more eggs at a time.
#5 West Bend 86628 Automatic Egg Cooker
The West Bend 86628 Automatic Egg Cooker can cook up to 7 eggs at a time. The best thing about these 7 egg cookers are that you can do only 1 egg if you are a single person or as many as 7 if you want the eggs to make something or you have guests.
The egg cooker base is heat resistant and stays cool while the eggs are cooking, there is an egg tray for holding your eggs for boiling which can be done soft, medium and hard boiled and it also comes with an egg poaching pan which has a non stick interior making it easy to clean and easy to remove the eggs when poached.
There is a clear domed lid so that the steam can circulate while cooking your eggs and it comes with a measurement cup so you know how much water to use for the type of egg you want to make. This is simple to use with an on/off switch on the front and an alarm when the eggs are done.
#6 Hamilton Beach 25500 Egg Cooker with Built-In Timer
The Hamilton Beach 25500 Egg Cooker with Built-In Timer is a 7 egg cooker, which can be cooked to the same consistency time and again when you use the right amount of water to cook your eggs the way you like them.
Whether you want to boil your eggs soft, medium or hard, or if you would like to have your eggs poached you can manage that with this egg cooker. The cooker comes with a 7 egg tray for boiling and a 3 egg tray for poaching.
There is a water cup with measurements on it for the right amount of water required to cook your eggs, if you want poached, level 4 is used, place your eggs in the poaching cups and stand on the egg tray, place the lid on and switch on. It takes about 6 – 8 minutes to completion and an alarm will sound when the cooking is finished. Just enough time to make toast to put them on. A Hamilton Beach egg cooker can make breakfast quick and easy.
#7 Chefman RJ24-V2-Red Modern Stylish Design Electric Countertop Egg Cooker with Removable Tray
The Chefman RJ24-V2-Red Modern Stylish Design Electric Countertop Egg Cooker with Removable Tray lets you cook your eggs at any time of the day without added fat so that you can control the amount of calories that you eat. An egg is a perfect healthy food encased in its own portion controlled packaging.
With this 6 egg cooker you can cook up to 6 eggs at a time and if you like to take hard boiled eggs to work for a snack this is the perfect tool to prepare them. There is an easy little holder that can be attached to the egg tray which makes it easy to take the cooked eggs from the cooker, on the tray and lower them into cold water to stop them cooking.
There is a 2 egg poaching tray which can also be used to make mini omelettes. The egg measurement cup comes with a pin in the base to pierce your eggs before boiling, this stops them from cracking while they are cooking. There is automatic shut off when your eggs are finished cooking and with this being one of the cheapest options available its worth checking out.
#8 DBTech Automatic Shut-off Electric Egg Cooker
The DBTech Automatic Shut-off Electric Egg Cooker can cook up to 7 eggs at one time. As with all the other 7 egg cookers we have reviewed you can cook your eggs soft, medium or hard boiled using the levels on the measuring cup as a guideline to the amount of water needed.
This unit has automatic shut off and an alarm when finished. There is a clear, domed lid with vent which allows good circulation of the steam for cooking and you can view the progress of cooking when using the omelette tray.
There is no poaching tray in this egg cooker but there is an omelette tray which you can use for an omelette with any add ins you want or you can just crack a couple of eggs in there and it will give you a large poached egg with 2 yolks. I use the measure for a medium boiled egg for the way I like my eggs cooked in the tray. These small egg cookers take up no space in the kitchen but cooking eggs becomes so much easier that they are worth buying.
#9 Hamilton Beach 25477 Breakfast Sandwich Maker
The Hamilton Beach 25477 Breakfast Sandwich Maker offers a different way to prepare you eggs. If you like an egg muffin similar to what you can buy at a drive through why not make your own with this sandwich maker.
This clever little egg cooker allows you to make a stacked heated sandwich with a cooked egg in it. It works best with english muffins as they fit easily into the machine, but you can substitute for pancakes or bread cut to fit, whatever suits you.
Plug in the machine to heat up, when the ready light comes on you are ready to assemble your sandwich. Open up the lid and top half of the machine and place half the muffin in the bottom cut side up, add some cheese, grated or sliced and add ham or some kind of cooked meat on top of that.
Lower the top level down and crack you egg onto the plate, you can prick the yolk here, add your top half of the muffin cut side down on top of the egg and close the lid. Wait 5 minutes.
Slide out the base holding the egg, it moves sideways, it is non stick and should come out easily, this drops the cooked egg onto the cheese and ham base, you can then raise the lid and top ring to get your sandwich out. You may need to leave for a couple of minutes to cool down, enjoy!
#10 Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Boiler
The Nordic Ware Microwave Egg Boiler is your egg cooker without electric cables. If you don’t want another electric kitchen gadget in your kitchen you might want to try this microwave version.
This microwave egg cooker is shaped like an egg with a flat base, the lid just pushes on and twists off and inside is the egg holder which is removable and it holds 4 eggs.
To boil your eggs you remove the tray and fill with water to the fill line marked inside the base, add your tray and then your eggs, no need to pierce, and put on the lid. Place the whole unit in the microwave and set the timer for cooking.
Because there are many different type of microwave ovens of different power levels, learning how long to cook for may take a couple of tries but the guideline given is soft-boiled 5-6 minutes, medium-boiled 6-7 minutes and hard-boiled 8-9 minutes.
Leave the eggs to stand in the microwave for a couple of minutes to finish cooking and then remove carefully, this boiler will be hot to handle, some people stand it on a plate to make it easier to remove. Take off the lid and remove the eggs, place in iced water to stop cooking before peeling. This is a great, cheap egg cooker to buy.
