1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for egg boiler

1.1 Types

  • Electric Egg Boiler

Electric egg boilers are the most common type where you put a plug in the socket, measure a certain number of millimetres of water, and set the temperature as per your choice for hard, medium or soft eggs. You hear a buzzer when eggs are ready or when the water runs out. An electric egg boiler comes in various size that can accommodate 2, 3, 6 or 9 eggs. 

  • Microwave Egg Boiler

A microwave egg boiler is an electric appliance without electric parts. You have to put a specific amount of water in the reservoir, eggs in the rack and let it boil. You must pierce the eggs on the top of the air chamber of the egg to prevent the air chamber from exploding. A microwave egg boiler manual comes with this warning. Moreover, a microwave egg cooker is the only type that you can get as a variant for a single egg.

1.2 Capacity

The overall capacity of the egg boiler is the foremost thing to consider before purchasing the appliance.

Most egg cookers can boil 6 eggs. However, it can be too much for some people like bachelors or small families. In that case, you can choose a cooker that can cook just 3 eggs. Well, an egg cooker with 1 egg capacity is also available in the market.

On the other hand, there are large families for whom even a boiler with a capacity of 6 eggs might prove to be small. They can bug an egg boiler that can cook 8 or more eggs. 

Of course, an egg cooker designed for 6 eggs is very much suitable to boil just 1 egg. You do not have to fill the egg cooker completely. An egg boiler that can accommodate more than just a few eggs is always better because you can choose to cook 1 egg for yourself or several eggs when there are guests.

1.3 Non-stick

It is also essential that the egg boiler is non-stick so that when the eggs are placed inside, they don't stick to the surface of the boiler. However, there is always an option to pick an egg boiler that features a normal surface if you prefer that.

1.4 Portability

Before purchasing an egg boiler, you must look for the boiler's portability factor and consider compact and storage features. The boiler should be easy to carry and shift from one place to another.

1.5 Power Consumption

An egg boiler is an electrical appliance, and hence, the power consumption of the egg boiler becomes one of the imperative considerations. It's needless to say that you should pick an egg boiler which would consume less electricity and is power-efficient enough so it could not surge your power bills.

It's needless to say that you should pick an egg boiler which would consume less electricity and is power-efficient enough so it could not surge your power bills.

1.6 Auto Cut-off

An auto-cut off function is an essential and valuable function in the egg boiler, as this functionality helps in boiling the eggs to the perfect temperature. Once the egg is boiled, the egg boiler automatically turns itself off. However, low-price egg boilers have a beep function or an alarm system embedded into them, which even alerts the user to turn off the boiler when the boiling process system comes to an end. In this case, you will have to switch off the egg cooker yourself.

1.7 Adjustable Hardness

Every egg boiler gives you the option of setting the hardness yourself, but simple egg boilers let you choose between simply the soft, medium or hard-boiled. And whatever number of eggs you will put in the cooker, all your eggs will be identical. However, the egg boilers that come with a rotary knob gives you intermediate solutions. It lets you control the egg cooker completely to your liking. And having adjustable temperature zones is like a cherry on the cake. Such an egg boiler feature will allow you to have a hard egg and your little one soft egg simultaneously.

1.8 Other Use Cases

It is “a good to have functionality” if your boiler can be used not only for boiling eggs but to boil a few vegetables or steam cherry tomatoes. In fact, there are egg cookers that also lets you poach eggs or bake an omelette rather than only boil eggs.

1.9 Accessories

A measuring cup is one of the accessories better to have as you can easily pour the right quantity of water into the boiler. Another great accessory to have is an egg piercer which lets you poke a small hole in the eggshell to prevent the egg from leaking or cracking during cooking.

1.10 Warranty

Like any other electrical appliance, it is good if your egg boiler features a warranty. In case of a malfunction, it could be repaired within the warranty period without any cost.

2.7 What are the benefits of using an egg boiler?

No, an egg cooker will not prepare your eggs any tastier than when you cook them otherwise. 

  • One of the benefits of using an egg boiler is consistency. You cook the same amount of egg using the same water quantity and temperature, so the result is the same. Always!

  • Another benefit is, it offers convenience. You need not constantly keep an eye on the water or stay close. You can do your work until you hear the buzzer or boiler switches off automatically.

  • Most of the egg boilers are portable. Therefore, you can take them to a campsite to quickly cook some eggs, and all you need will be a power outlet.

  • Also, an egg cooker is faster. You don’t have to boil the water initially and then put the eggs in that container.

2.8 What do I use the supplied egg piercer for?

Egg piercer prevents the egg from cracking during boiling.

An egg has an air chamber via which a chick gasp for breath. And once the race against time begins, the chicken has to prick the shell open before running out of oxygen. However, this air expands while cooking the egg leading to shell crack. Poking a small hole in the egg allows air to escape from the air chamber and do not let the egg burst.

You can get most of the egg boilers between 20 to 40 euros.

2.10 Why do eggs crack in an egg boiler?

The egg’s bottom has tiny air bubbles, and as the egg heats up, the air expands. As the hot air pushes outwards, it puts pressure onto the shell leading it to crack. To prevent it, you can pin-pick in the rounded bottom of the egg.

2.11 Can I make an omelette in an egg boiler?

Yes. You can make omelettes, poached eggs, scrambled eggs in a multi-function egg cooker.

Yes. You can make omelettes, poached eggs, scrambled eggs in a multi-function egg cooker.

2.12 Why should I put boiled eggs in cold water after boiling them?

After boiling the eggs for 10-12 minutes, put them in cold water to balance out the temperature or bring it down rapidly and stop the cooking process. This way, you will get the eggs the way you want; otherwise, the remaining outside warmth will end up cooking the eggs more (a little though) from inside.

2.13 Does egg size determine the cooking time of the egg?

Yes, bigger eggs take more time to cook. It is best to set the hardness setting of an egg boiler to hard (to the right) in the case of the large eggs to ensure they are sufficiently cooked.

4. Fun Facts: Interesting facts, figures and things to know about egg boiler

4.1 James Seddon is credited for inventing the egg boiler.

4.2 Eggs boilers can be termed as one of the most energy-efficient appliances in the kitchen despite their excessive usage.

4.3 You need less water to boil more eggs is a famous boiler paradox. It happens because the available air space in an egg cooker with many eggs is smaller than in a cooker that has only one egg. The amount of water vapour produced is, therefore, smaller with more eggs than fewer eggs. In addition to this, the egg is ultimately not heated by just steam, but the steam condenses on the egg's surface. The resulting condensation energy heats the egg.

Furthermore, the cooled, condensed water drips present at the bottom of the tray is heated by the heating coil until there is no more water. As more eggs create a larger condensation surface, the water in the condensation cycle is “recycled” often. Therefore, less amount of water is enough for more eggs than less number of eggs.

4.4 Eggs can be poached up to 24 hours in advance!

4.5 Bartenders have used egg whites in whiskey sours for whopping 90 years!

4.6 You can use an espresso machine to scramble eggs.

4.7 Eggs are hard-boiled when the yolk’s temperature is 174°F, medium-boiled when the yolk’s centre is at 165°F, and soft-boiled when the internal temperature at the yolk’s centre is 158°F.

4.8 Whites and yolk have the same amount of protein.

4.9 Eggs are hormone-free.
