In my opinion yes, they are totally worth it. That also depends on how often you like to cook eggs for breakfast.
If your’e anything like me, that’s quite often, so it makes sense to make sure its an easy process that ends in a perfectly cooked egg every time.

Of course, there are plenty of other reasons that make egg cookers worth it. For one, eggs are healthy and tasty.
They’re are great way to start the day, and a good egg cooker will take away the chance of messing up your eggs. Note that egg cookers are also known as egg boilers.
So lets take a look at some of the best egg cookers on the market.
What is the best egg cooker on the market?
Dash DEC005BK Egg Cooker
The best egg cooker currently on the market is the Dash DEC005BK . This is a best seller and for good reason.
This little device can cook all the different cooked egg varieties you can think of. Hard boiled, poached, omelets, scrambled etc !
One con of this device is the noise it makes when your eggs are done, the Dash Egg Cooker noise is kind of loud which can be annoying for some, but for me its no issue.
Cuisinart CEC-10 Egg Central Egg Cooker
Next to make the list is the Cuisinart CEC-10 Egg Central Egg Cooker. This is a little more Posh than the Dash but has some good features which make it worthy of a mention here.
This little ripper of a cooker can cook up to 10 eggs in shell style, or up to 4 poached. Its also has a good omelet tray which can handle up to 3 eggs.
As you can see it also has a rather attractive stainless steel lid, which will suit any modern kitchen quite nicely.
How do you cook an egg in a egg cooker?
A few important notes here
1- Egg cooker come with a small water measuring jug. You must fill the jug to the appropriate level ( marked on the jug) and pour into the base of the cooker.
Please read the instructions that come with your device before cooking.
2- There is a egg shell piercing pin. This really tends to throw people off. When cooking in shell, you are required to pierce the top of the egg shell with piercing pin.
This allows for a place for the heat to escape, ensuring the eggs don’t crack and explode everyhere.
Basically, it depends on the amount of water you put in the base of your cooker. This will vary the time it takes to cook, and the egg cooker will turn off when the water runs out.
The cookers will come with different racks for different cooking styles.
The water measuring jug that comes with the cooker will tell you exactly how much water to use for the style of eggs you want.
This is what really makes eggs cookers great value because it allows you to have your perfect egg each and every time.
Are egg boilers worth it? For sure – unless you don’t like eggs. In which case, why are you reading this?
