When searching for the best electric egg cookers, it helps to get the inside scoop from connoisseurs. And, we are proud to admit that we are self-proclaimed connoisseurs of the electric egg cooker.
So, about a couple of months ago, we went on a camping excursion where our hosts cooked us up some soft-boiled eggs, every morning, from an electric egg cooker. And, we were completely blown away by how perfectly soft-boiled these eggs turned out. Was it really that quick, easy and delicious?
In addition, not only did these eggs turn out exactly how you set them to cook, they were the best eggs we have ever divulged in. Especially the soft-boiled eggs…they were like a glass of fine wine and we find the appropriate word here to be smooth. It seems sort of weird to describe eggs as smooth but that is exactly how they turned out.
And, with this new-found discovery, we sadly came back home to an electric egg cooker-less house. Therefore, we needed to get an egg cooker right away to soothe our morning appetite.
So, we started searching for the best electric egg cookers and narrowed the results down to the most highly reviewed electric egg cookers on the market. And what was important to us in the reviews were a few things. Namely, deliciously cooked eggs time and time again.
This means, we payed close attention to the reviews that are heavy on the results side. We wanted perfect eggs cooked consistently.
Then, we further focused in on the user reviews where durability is a factor. We don’t want to be stuck with a burnt-out electric egg cooker when we need it the most.
Finally, we were on a budget with this new purchase – it took us by surprise so we didn’t calculate this new-found luxury. Therefore, we chose a budget model for our electric egg cooker.
However, we also chose some other models that are on our dream list. So, whether you’re on a budget or you’re looking for a high-end electric egg cooker, you can find what you need on our list of best electric egg cookers.

Elite Platinum EGC-207 Maxi-Matic Egg Cooker
So, this is the electric egg cooker we chose and we couldn’t be happier with it. The Elite Platinum EGC-207 Maxi-Matic Egg Cooker cooks perfect eggs every time. And, like we mentioned above, we were on a budget so this egg cooker is priced to sell.
This pick on our list of best electric egg cookers can boil up to 7 eggs at a time on the egg tray. Furthermore, you can cook these eggs hard, medium or soft. However, this electric egg cooker can also whip up some omelets or poached eggs.
The Elite Platinum EGC-207 Maxi-Matic Egg Cooker is easy to use. Simply fill the measuring cup to the desired amount of water allocated for the desired cooked eggs. This measuring cup is labeled to get the exact measurement for hard, medium or soft eggs. Then, pour the water on the bottom of the egg cooker and place the egg tray on top. You will then want to pierce the eggs with the egg piercer. You will find the piercer attached to one end of the measuring cup. Place the eggs on the tray, pierced-side up and cover with the lid. Turn the button on and the red cooking light will turn on. Once the eggs are done, the cooking light will turn off and you will hear a small click. This is to signify the eggs are ready.
So, it’s really as simple as this. Just make sure that once the eggs are done, you run the eggs under cold water. This will prevent the eggs from further cooking. And, this will also make the eggs easier to handle and easier to peel.
The Elite Platinum EGC-207 is made of stainless steel and features a see-through plastic cover so you can view the eggs while they’re cooking. In addition, this electric egg cooker comes with a tray where you can poach or scramble the eggs.
Lastly, we love the design of this electric egg cooker. So much so, that we just leave it on the counter. And, we think it adds to the kitchen and the aesthetic instead of taking away. Furthermore, and to really indulge with your aesthetic, this electric egg cooker comes in your choice of colors: Black, Black/Stainless Steel, Green, Red, Teal and White.
Every morning, without fail, we get perfectly cooked, soft-boiled eggs. And, it’s a been a few months and no mishaps and no real big issues. Just consistent deliciousness every time.
The cooking light is not that bright. Therefore, sometimes it’s hard to tell when the eggs are ready. Furthermore, there’s a small, subtle click that happens when the cooking light shuts off. You can hear this click if you’re by the egg cooker. However, it’s difficult to hear once you step away.
Therefore, if you need an egg cooker that gives you an audible alert, we suggest going with another pick. And, this is also to stay on the safe side. There are a few times we lost track of time and overcooked our eggs. As a result, this is the one feature we are quite disappointed about.
Cuisinart CEC-10 Egg Central Egg Cooker

In addition, this electric egg cooker makes delicious eggs morning after morning. Therefore, it’s consistent and reliable.
Lastly, it has an unmistakable beep when the eggs are finished cooking.
I know we said this egg cooker has an automatic shutoff. However, that is partially true. It actually has stand-by mode where it will stop cooking the eggs. But, you will need to flick the switch to off in order to shut completely shut down the egg cooker.
Furthermore, the inside parts are all plastic, including the egg tray. And, while it’s somewhat of a relief the plastic parts are BPA free, it’s still plastic.

If you want the eggs to sit, you can turn the dial far left and this will allow the eggs to keep warm. And, this is great if you’re using the poaching trays. If you are cooking the eggs on the egg tray, we suggest running them under cold water as soon as they are finished cooking.
