I am a huge fan of hard-boiled eggs. They are one of the most versatile foods to add to your meal plan. They’re a great protein on salad, delicious on a sandwich, and you can even make a bunch for some deviled eggs. However, while making hard-boiled eggs is an easy process, I find that using an egg cooker makes hard-boiling a batch of eggs even easier! The one I swear by? The  Dash Rapid Egg Cooker.

Why purchase an egg cooker?

While making eggs in a pot is easy to do, having eggs cooked to absolute perfection can take time to master. Nevertheless, with an egg cooker, this is never a problem. Egg cookers help to regulate exactly how cooked you want your eggs to be by using a small measuring tool for water. You can make soft-boiled eggs to hard-boiled eggs, and even small omelets or poached eggs as well.

I have never had to worry about my eggs coming out underdone or overdone with this egg cooker—they’re perfect every time.

How does it work?

First, you have to decide how soft or hard you want your eggs to be. There’s a little measuring cup that comes with the egg cooker that shows you how much water to use for each style of egg. Once the water is added to the machine, use the small prick (typically attached to the measuring cup) and prick a hole on the eggs. Place each egg (hole side up) on the egg slots.

Once the lid is securely on the machine, you just click the button to turn the cooker on and let it do its thing. You don’t have to hover over a pot and wait for it to boil, or set a timer as the eggs cook. The egg cooker does it all for you. Once the eggs are done, it will alert you to remove them.

In order to properly peel hard-boiled eggs, I like to run cold water on top of the eggs. Once they are completely cool, they are ready to peel! And trust me, the eggs that come from an egg cooker are the easiest eggs I’ve ever peeled in my life.

How much does it cost?

While there are numerous egg cookers you can buy online, my favorite is the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker for $18.57. Mine is in black, and it holds six eggs at a time.

Maybe this seems a bit much for another appliance in your kitchen—especially when you can just boil eggs in a pot for free. But I promise you, when you’re looking for something easy to prep for lunches the upcoming week, the egg cooker is always handy to have around.
