Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse, offering an abundance of protein, vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B and D, folic acid, and iron. Egg cookers help you make eggs using the power of steam. There are many popular brands of egg cookers available today. Knowing what features to look out for, if you ever decide to buy an egg cooker, will help ensure you buy a model that’s suitable for your needs. Steam Egg Cookers offer you a way to cook eggs without having a large pot of boiling water on a hot stove. Today’s post shares more information towards this and also a ‘nutella mugcake’ recipe that can be made in your boiled egg maker instead of microwave.
Egg Cookers: What to Look For?
Egg cookers come in many styles. Different designs make boiled, poached and scrambled eggs, and some even make patties for easy breakfast sandwiches. In just a few minutes, you can make one or several eggs to eat right away or save for another day.
One of the most important features to look for in an egg cooker is what types of eggs it can cook. If you love breakfast sandwiches, look for a cooker that cooks cracked (poached) eggs, preferably in a round shape to fit your English muffin or sliced bread. Most countertop egg steamers can make boiled or poached eggs in under 20 minutes. Boiled egg options include soft-, medium- and hard-boiled.
Each cooker notifies you of a finished cooking cycle in different ways. Some cookers alert you with an audible signal that tells you to turn the machine off. Others shut themselves off when the cooking is finished. A few models even have a feature to keep the eggs warm until you’re ready for them. Some electric egg cookers have a timer on the machine that you can watch; however, most models base cook times on how much water you put in the bottom of the machine. (When the water is finished a buzzer sounds or light goes off)
Number of Eggs
Another important feature is how many eggs a cooker can prepare at once. Electric cookers often hold one to 12 eggs per cooking cycle. If you’re cooking for a large family every day or you like to keep hard-boiled eggs in the fridge for a snack, having a cooker that can handle a dozen eggs at once may save you time.
Whether you make eggs for the health benefits or as a tasty snack, electric cookers make it easy to cook them in a variety of ways using steam or your microwave. Find the best egg cooker that fits your lifestyle and family at a price that also fits your budget.
