Electric Egg Cookers - How To Choose The Best Electric Egg Cooker For Your Oven
Instead of waiting for the water to boil over, you could turn to an electrical egg cooker to steam a fresh batch of yolks to your taste. Egg cookers are handy kitchen appliances that make cooking easy and hassle free, no longer stopping at the water heater. You can have boiling eggs ready for dinner, breakfast, or even for taking on a camping trip to save on camping expenses. The following are tips on how to choose the best electric egg popper.
Electric egg cookers come in a variety of sizes, designs, and functions. The sizes range from one to three quarts, while the designs include stainless steel, metal, and even "quick-style" units that make it easier to pour out the contents. Many models will fit into a standard sauce pan, while others need to be contained in a separate "slow cooker" for use with boiling water. It's important to know that egg cookers vary in size, capacity, and price. Here are some guidelines to help you narrow down your choices.
* How much food do you want cooked? * How many eggs do you plan to cook? * Do you want to quickly boil a single egg, or do you want to cook a dozen? * How often will you be using your egg cookers? * How often do you plan to travel with your electric egg cookers?
* How hard are you looking for a really good egg cooker? * Does portability factor into your decision? * Are you more comfortable with a wall-mounted electric model or one that sits on your counter? * Do you prefer the convenience of having your egg poach sitting on your counter or in a compartment? * How long would you like to keep it? * What is your budget?
* How often do you plan to use your electric egg cookers? How often do you cook six eggs? * Do you buy your eggs already cooked, or do you poach them yourself? * Why not try an electric egg poach that cooks eggs the natural way? * Would using an older style electric egg cooker work better for you? * Do you need your eggs cooked perfectly white and fluffy?
There are two major styles of electric egg cookers that you can choose from: the quick-serve and the traditional electric dash rapid egg cooker. The traditional ones are what I believe to be the best egg cookers on the market today. They're also much more compact than the quick-serve ones. They're usually called electronic egg cookers and come with very cool, helpful features such as an audible alert when you're finished cooking. Some models allow you to set the timer so that you only get to cook your eggs when you're ready!
On the other hand, these old fashioned egg cookers aren't very efficient if you want to cook six or more eggs at once. Even if you poach your eggs perfectly, there's still no reason to waste time waiting for the eggs to come out perfectly cooked if you can use your electric cooker right away? In addition, if you want to make omelettes, there really isn't a faster way to make omelettes than to use an egg poach maker. The traditional egg poach takes longer than just a few minutes, and even if you know exactly when the eggs are done, there's still no way to be sure they are absolutely perfect.
There are some new models of electric egg cookers that have been on the market for quite some time. If you're shopping for one of these models, it's a good idea to check out the manufacturer's instructions with each model, just to be sure you're getting the best deal out there. These types of cookers are very inexpensive, which is why many people like to invest in them. It's the best way to get an easy, inexpensive way to prepare fried foods and fluffy cakes. Take a look at all the models and their individual reviews for more information on this wonderful kitchen appliance.
