Boil or poach eggs, and even steam your vegetables with our Egg Boiler. Compact, modern and extremely efficient, it'll soon be your go-to breakfast appliance!

Do you struggle to boil the perfectly cooked soft boiled egg? Or maybe your poached eggs always turn out too hard or lose that perfectly round shape?

There's no need to panic - help is here!

Our quirky little Egg Boiler is your answer to getting perfectly cooked eggs every time! Whether you fancy a soft boiled, hard boiled, or even a poached egg it'll ensure your meal is perfect every time.

Big family? There's more than enough room for everyone's breakfast. With space for 7 eggs, you can rest easy knowing your family will be getting a delicious healthy, nutrient packed meal.

The egg boiler features an alarm which will sound when your eggs are boiled or poached to perfection.

If you fancy whipping up something a little more striking - why not try eggs benedict with steamed asparagus?

To steam tender vegetables, simply fill the provided measuring cup with water to add another delicious dimension to your meals!

It wouldn't be eggs benedict without a luxurious poached egg would it? Our egg boiler has space for four poached eggs to be cooked at once - no more standing over a hot stove!

Tips and Tricks

For best results, use room temperature eggs - simply remove from your fridge 10-15mins before you want to cook.

To ensure your poached eggs don't stick, wipe a little oil around the poaching compartments.

For fast peeling, start peeling from the end of the egg, not the side.

Despite the varied reviews already made about this item, I thought I'd take a chance as the price was very reasonable and I'm glad I did. There was a small instruction booklet which, although a little terse, was perfectly clear, including for poaching and steaming. The item is sufficiently sturdy and well made for the job and I have been very pleased with all the results so far. It boils and poaches eggs exactly as it advertises; I have used medium ones and they match with the water calibration exactly. I have found that one side cooks very slightly faster than the other - I imagine to do with the placing of the element, which is hidden, but it's certainly not a problem. As eggs vary in size, putting the larger one on that side (or putting ones side by side) stops that minute difference anyway. The pin for piercing the eggs before boiling is very easy to use. I have not used it as a steamer, yet, as I routinely steam meat, fish and veg for four people at a time in a large steamer, but this one is a perfect size to steam for a single person. Of course, care has to be taken when items are cooked - they are hot and steamy - but that's the case with any steamer! My advice, if you're confused by reading all the contradictory reviews, is that with careful following of the instructions and accepting that sensible, gentle care will need to be taken of the item itself (it is only plastic, mainly) you will be pleased with how it works.

4) Turn unit off when buzzer sounds.

POACHED

Great way of poaching eggs, you don't have to keep watching them to ensure that they don't come out rubbery. You just put water according to how you like your eggs, soft to hard, and walk away. I do mine a little underdone and leave them in the poacher until everything is ready, they keep warm and finish cooking whilst I can continue with everything else.

I bought this egg boiler as it was on offer.
It boils eggs perfectly, soft, Med or Hard.
I haven't tried the steamer but I cannot imagine why it wouldn't work. However the egg poacher worked well.Glad I bought it!!

I love eggs and especially boiled eggs
Although I did not expect much from this item - actually expected it to become another kitchen ornament I put it to use
Wow!! I now use this almost on a daily basis and has become a must have in the kitchen, simply to use and it works very well for hard boiled, medium boiled works fine as well but soft boiled takes a bit of practice and the white tends to be under cooked.
It cant be simpler to use, simply prick the egg with the supplied tool ( built into the water measuring cup ) pour in the required amount of water and switch on - this is where the only downside is in that it does not automatically shut off - yes it sounds an alarm to let you know they are ready but the unit it still on and you need to manually switch it off.
Cleaning is easy enough just remember to unplug if before doing so ( yes those people are out there )

Overall a brillian little device that saves me a lot of time and hassle

One thing large eggs are at its limit - XL sized eggs do not fit properly and do not cook properly

This product is great. It takes a little time to work out how much water to put in even though it is measured for you.
It all depends on how you like your eggs cooked.
But once youve dealt with that then it perfect eggs every time and no breakages either.

I purchased this item as I was looking for a way to steam and poach eggs without the messing about. This product is great, especially for the price.

It comes with an attachment for steaming and poaching eggs. The steaming attachment lets you steam 6 eggs at a time. The poaching attachment lets you poach 4 eggs at a time.

You get a measuring cup to fill with water to the desired mark (soft egg is marked low on the measuring cup, medium is at the middle and hard near the top) You puncture the egg with a pin on the steaming attachment, fill with water and the egg boiler will sound after the water has evaporated and the egg is done.

I think this product is great and would a good purchase if you are a fan of eggs. Would recommend to others.
