Oh my god how did I ever live without this thing?! It’s such a time saver and seriously cute to boot!The packaging for this product is great — several informative booklets and gorgeous design all around. The product itself is tiny — about half the size of my rice cooker — and takes up no counter space at all. It almost reminds me of Japanese design, for its simplicity and efficiency.Using the product couldn’t be easier: just pierce the eggs, put in the right amount of water (I general put in just a little more than the line for hard boiled, since my first batch came out a little less hard than I’d have liked), push the button and walk away. The only thing I don’t like about this product is the fact that the buzzer does not stop buzzing until you attend to the cooker. So you couldn’t just set it to cook and walk away to take a shower or do the laundry or whatever — you need to come back and physically turn it off, lest you and the neighbors be subjected to the drone of its alarm.BUT besides that, it does its job wonderfully! My eggs have all come out cooked just to my liking. I’ve only tried hard boiled, but I imagine that soft, poached, omelette, etc. all turn out just as well. It’s a great little design and I’m so glad I splurged. You should too!
I don’t like watching my pot to find out when the water starts boiling. So I bought this Dash Egg Cooker. It delivers perfect eggs by steaming them until the water placed in the device has evaporated. The exact amount of water is added to the cooker before it steams the eggs–there is a measuring line on the plastic cup that comes with the device. Next to each measuring line are the following words: “Hard Boiled, Soft Boiled, Poached, etc.” Fill the cup with water to the line for the egg type you want and then add the water to the device. Then simply puncture each egg with a spike that is attached to the measuring cup, place the eggs in the device with the hole on top (duh). You close it, press the button on front and walk away. When an alarm sounds, it turns off automatically. Your eggs are done. No need to watch water boil. No need for daily cleaning. It’s quite small. Love this thing. For under 18 dollars, what’s not to like?
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. This definitely cooks eggs to absolute perfection. And it doesn’t take long at all! I’ve never been able to master the medium boiled egg, and with this, I’ll never have to learn! Love this device!The ONLY problem is the “alert” that the eggs are done sounds like an all out nuclear-air strike alarm, or at the very least, my fire alarm. I nearly shat my pants each time my eggs are done. I’ll likely keep it because the eggs are so perfect, but just be aware of the banshee that gets released each time eggs are fully cooked.

You know those objects that are totally unnecessary, but you see them and fall in love and live forever in happiness with your random kitschy thing? This is that thing. I saw this egg cooker on a Buzzfeed list and, even though I am a fully functioning adult who has never had trouble cooking eggs before in my life, I knew I had to have it. I have not been disappointed.It makes especially lovely, perfectly round omeletes with minimal cleanup required. Hard and soft boiled eggs cook evenly and taste great. The poached eggs are tender and melt in your mouth over toast.I do believe that the water (thus, time) required to cook eggs is based on room-temperature eggs, the way they’re kept in countries outside of the USA. If you keep your eggs in the fridge, add an extra third or so of water to the cooking time.As other reviews have mentioned, the timer alarm is LOUD. Like, picture a fire alarm mixed with an incoming nuclear missle alarm, but make it about 12 times louder. There’s no way to turn it off, so prepare to muffle it up with some cotton and tape if you want to keep your ears.It’s the perfect kitchen appliance. I grin from ear to ear every time I use it.

Update 2020: Star rating changed from 4 to 5 – this cooker is boss.I’ve had this cooker over 2 years. It’s been used every day for the past year at least once, often twice and occasionally more. The sediment that builds up on the plate when doing hard cooked eggs is from the water. Pouring a little vinegar on the metal plate and letting it soak for a bit cleans it right up without too much scrubbing. I do the same with the egg holder platter and stem when it looks dingy and soap doesn’t clean it off. I still haven’t made poached eggs in the thing but I did get adventurous and started adding spinach to my omelettes. I need to fill the water just above the omelette line and let the egg patty sit in the cooker a few minutes to avoid a gooey center but it works well and is now my preferred prep method. The buzzer is as loud today as it was the first, a pro and con at the same time. I occasionally miss the buzzer when I’m in the back of the house but it dutifully continues to buzz, although occasionally intermittently, up to an hour later. No idea if it would continue past that point, I got tired of it and turned it off.Original review 2018:I’ve had this cooker about a month and I have used it several times every week.Hard/Medium boil: – The marking for hard boil on the cup resulted in eggs that had a slightly squishy yolk in the center which is no good for deviled eggs so I fill the water cup almost all the way to the top so it cooks a bit longer. I can boil 1 or 6 eggs at a time and they all come out the same level of doneness with the same amount of water and wait time after the buzz. I do leave them in the cooker a few minutes for a hard boil just to be sure the yolks are solid and I have yet to get any green or tough yolks doing this and the whites remain tender as well. The medium line was pretty good for the softer eggs I ate as a snack by themselves. I haven’t tried making soft boiled eggs as the medium boil was as soft as I like! VS cooking on the stove, the eggs from the cooker cool much quicker and without ice in the water, plus they peel just as easy a few days later right from the fridge. Not sure if I’d leave them past a few days as the shell needs piercing for boiling, but so far so good on 2-3 days. Also as mentioned in other reviews there is discoloration on the heating plate after boiling eggs but it doesn’t occur when using either of the egg cooking platter so I do not think it is rust but sediment from the shells.Omelette: – The markings for omelette are right on for me. I get a nice firmly formed egg that is still tender and an interesting puffy top layer. It isn’t so much an omelette as a thick egg patty and perfect for a sandwich on toast or a bun. There is a bit of overhang on an english muffin, but not so much you can’t make it work. The recipe booklet says you can add things like spinach to the egg in the cooker but I haven’t tried that yet. After the buzzer goes off I can add some cheese to the top and cover it for a minute while bread is toasting and the cheese melts nicely. Be sure to use vegetable spray to coat the cooking cup for easy release.Poaching: – Haven’t tried poaching myself but a friend has and said it worked well. Again, need to use that spray or else it’s a mess and hard to get out!Other thoughts: – I wasn’t shopping for an egg cooker, or even thought I needed one, before I saw this listed as a lightning deal around Thanksgiving. After reading so many funny and entertaining reviews regarding the buzzer I had to hear it for myself! I was a little disappointed that the sound wasn’t quite the ‘Klaxon of Doom’ I had been expecting. It is more like a high pitched annoying perpetual buzz that you really don’t want to continue listening to but could easily be missed if the washer/dryer/dishwasher was going at the same time and you’re a few rooms away. Overall the cooker does a great job making it possible to get a hot breakfast made while getting ready in the morning. I’ve probably saved hours of time and hassle on the few dozen hard boiled eggs alone. I wouldn’t be without the cooker now and aside from the urge to make a REAL omelette now and again (with 3 eggs), I am happy to let this cooker handle all of my egg cooking needs.
Its convenient, compact and time saving; this kitchen gadget is a game changer! I was hesitant but after reading all the reviews I was ready to try it and I am glad I did. Prep takes 30-45 seconds to fill the appropriate water level, poke the eggs and place in tray. Three eggs take about 7 minutes, six eggs takes about 11-12 minutes. Yes, but buzzer is obnoxious and annoying but it’s not designed to be pleasant- I appreciate that its loud and obnoxious, less chance of a fire. Once these puppies are cooked and cooled off, it is a breeze peeling and prepping. I used to hate making hard boiled eggs specifically because I’d have to peel them and lose 1/4 of the egg with the shell; thankfully none of that is the case with this device and i’m so glad I stumbled on it while browsing Amazon. Definitely recommend getting this product, you will not regret it!Also, I noticed there were some reviews complaining about the residue aftermath on the ‘base’ where the water boiled out but it’s nothing out of the ordinary. We have hard water and it cleans up just fine. It’s not any different than what we already experience on our pans but its just more shallow than your typical pan.
I do not understand all the positive reviews, my experience could not be more opposite. I followed the cooking instructions to the letter, and I was left with soggy uncooked egg underneath a layer of cooked egg. I tried several times, and all results were the same. A complete failure. And the buzzer/alarm is every bit as obnoxiously loud that has been described in most reviews both positive & negative.
I do not want to leave a 1 star review because I actually love this egg cooker. However after 2 months it leaks water out of the bottom everywhere. I have tried to contact Amazon and get no reply. I contacted Dash through their contact us on webpage and no reply after 2 months. Unfortunately that is why I’m leaving a 1 star review. It isn’t cheap to buy and I just want it replaced.
I feel like every review should’ve opened with “THIS THING SCREECHES”. Would’ve been good to know. I thought “the timer will sound” meant a pleasant little ding or chime or I would’ve even been okay with a short elephant trumpet, but instead this tiny but mighty cooker will put out a continuous, shrill, miniature SIREN. What is it Lassie!?!? Is it the world’s smallest hurricane flood warning? Are the tornadoes coming!? Is there a fire!??No it’s your eggs, they’re cooked, because some designing genius thought, you know what folks want to hear as they rouse gently from slumber and prepare their breakfast in the lazy morning? A shrill-af non-stop siren that’ll raise your cortisol and maybe gnaw a bit into your mental health. If growing up you ever dashed to open the Microwave before it hit 0, just to spare yourself and your roommates the alarm from that loud microwave beep, boy is this the adult version for you.I’m honestly surprised not more people have remarked on this. Everyone is like oh good eggs! Perfect poach! Mm eggs! Gee yea the eggs taste good when going down with my heart medication bc that bugger shriek still makes my breath catch. I live in dread of it now. But I also want eggs.And I guess this does make eggs. It’s $20. It’s a fun size that fits well on the counter. The poached eggs not gonna lie come out a bit …ugly looking, but I just want eggs. Softboiled delivers as promised. The lines seem pretty accurate, I’ve found when I go above or under them, the cook does vary appropriately (under/over).So I’ll keep it for now until I’m rich enough to afford a better one and also therapy for the siren that haunts my dreams.

This was absolutely the most trifling thing I’ve ever purchased. I bought it because I have a turtle who eats boiled eggs kind of in bulk. I decided to test drive it on myself and make some poached eggs.—Oh my Lord Baby Jesus.— There has never been anything so repulsive created within the four walls of my kitchen. I followed the directions to a capital T, but the “poached” eggs this thing produced were mostly clear, watery, and straight up insulting. They went right from the device to the garbage disposal. I wouldn’t eat those eggs with YOUR mouth. DEE-SCUST-ING. Never again. Not even for the turtle.

I am one of those people who just loves eggs. My daughter too. Being egg people, we usually would throw a bunch in a pot and boil-em good ol’ fashioned style and leave it at that, maybe trying baking them now and then, but nothing special. I had heard about this lil’ contraption and was intrigued…could i really get my bag o’ eggs ready even quicker? And poach my eggs too? Omelettes??? In ONE MACHINE??!?!?!Well, I did what any egg lover would do and went ahead and ordered this lil’ cooker. I was impressed. Rather than having to dirty yet another pot and wait for water to boil, I can just plug this thing in, put some eggs in, and BOOM! EGGS! After just minutes they were done ready for me and my egg-child to eat. I’ve even made omelettes and poached eggs and been pleased as well. I couldn’t ask for more. It’s the kitchen item I never knew I needed!Now, the only downside is that the first time the buzzer goes off, you might just need a change of pants. You get used to it, but the buzzer to let you know the eggs are done is akin to the worst alarm clock you had as a kid…you know, the brown ones that probably your mom/dad or grandma/grandpa had that would somehow sound like an eagle getting tortured by a lawnmower? I mean, for an amazing cooker it’s a small downside, just be prepared for a heart attack the first time you hear it.

The advertising stated something like ” cook eggs faster that the time it takes to boil water. By the time I pierced all the eggs, placed them in the cooker and added water, it took about 19 minutes. Not impressive. When peeling the eggs, half of them came apart and stuck to the shell leaving the bottoms all torn up. Not a pretty sight for deviled eggs. Was just totally disappointed with this product and returned it after only one use.
It was great for the 1st time……..however after it had been used for the 2nd time it started to smell a bit and leave burnt marks on the bottom. The eggs were not cooking to the specified markings on the cup either. I followed the guidelines perfectly but my soft boiled came out so hard and the hard boiled came out burned along with the base! The eggs are edible but it just doesn’t does what it says it does

Cooks eggs perfectly! And, as an added bonus, everybody who lives within a ten mile radius of my house knows when my eggs are cooked thanks to the absolutely ridiculous bomb alert sounder that signals the end of the cooking time!!! Seriously is there any need???

Este utensilio es de esas cosas que no sabías que necesitabas hasta que lo compras. Solo pinchas los huevos con un accesorio que ya trae el aparato, pones un poco de agua, lo conectas y después de unos minutos suena la alarma y listo. La alarma no suena a una alarma de incendios ni es tan ruidosa como pensé que sería después de leer algunas reseñas.Solo hay dos cosas a tomar en cuenta:1. Si te gustan los huevos bien cocidos, como a mi, échale más del agua recomendada. Yo le pongo casi un 50% más y quedan perfectos.2. Si metes un huevo que tenga la cáscara rota se va a despanzurrar

For those who smoked through home ec: On stovetop, bring water to boil, add eggs, wait 11 minutes, remove eggs. Perfect hardboiled eggs all day. But, if you’re bored with that and want the excitement of never knowing how your eggs are going to wind up, with the extra danger of heated plastic enveloping your food in possibly carcinogenic vapors, please donate $15 (or more if it’s not on sale, sucka) to the manufacturer of this tarted up hotplate. Bonus: pays for itself with the iron and copper deposits that form on the heating element after just one use! Ka-ching!!
