There are so many methods of cooking eggs, but most will have you waiting around to make sure they are not overcooked or undercooked. Instead of waiting for water to boil and hovering over the pot, use an electric egg cooker for cooking a batch of eggs to your exact liking without all the work.
What to Consider in an Electric Egg Cooker
Here’s what to look for before you make a purchase:
- Size: Consider how many eggs or other food items you will want to cook at one time and buy a cooker with the appropriate capacity for you.
- Methods: Some egg cookers have the ability to make omelets or poached eggs as well as hard or soft-boiled ones. Consider which methods you want your cooker to be able to achieve.
- Safety: Decide what safety features you need, including automatic shutoffs or timers.
