The Dash Rapid egg cooker made great hard-cooked eggs with yolks that were generally well-cooked and egg whites that were firm, but not rubbery.

You can cook up to six eggs inside the compact Dash Rapid Egg Cooker. In our tests, the hard-cooked eggs had thoroughly cooked yolks and firm whites, and they tasted great. You can also use this economical machine to make scrambled eggs, omelets or poached eggs. You can choose from four different colors – white, aqua, red or black – so you can find one that looks good on your kitchen counter.

Made of BPA-free plastic, the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker uses a variety of options to cook your eggs. For poaching, you can add in the separate poaching tray to cook two eggs at a time. The egg boiling tray lets you cook up to six soft-, medium- or hard-boiled eggs. This electric egg cooker includes another tray for omelets, which allows you to choose exactly how you want your eggs done.

The user manual describes the best ways to use it for preparing your egg dishes, and the manual offers clear, step-by-step directions. You get a sharp egg piercer with this machine, unlike some other models whose egg piercing tool was dull and actually cracked some eggs before we even began cooking.

With the egg piercer on this device, you gently poke a tiny hole in each egg before cooking to avoid cracking during cooking, and that process worked well for us. Our tests showed no cracked eggs once the cooking was done.

You'll find this machine is easy to operate. All you do is add the right amount of water for the doneness level for the eggs you want to cook, turn the machine on and the power switch lights up to let you know the base is generating heat. Once the water has evaporated, the device sets off an extremely loud alert to let you know that the cooking process is complete.

This Dash Rapid Egg Cooker measures 7.6 inches wide and 6.5 inches high and weighs 1 pound, which makes it small enough for easy storage. The 360-watt device provides enough power to consistently cook eggs well. Along with the machine, you get a water measuring cup, the tray you use to poach or scramble two eggs, and another tray to cook omelets. If you routinely need to cook more eggs at one time, take a look at the Cuisinart CEC-10 egg cooker that can handle as many as 10 at a time.

You can store the parts easily inside the clear top to keep everything conveniently in one spot, and cleanup is easy since the plastic parts are dishwasher safe. The multifunctional and budget-friendly Dash Rapid Egg Cooker is a helpful addition to your kitchen that requires little work for cooking or cleaning, and you can count on fine results.
