It can sometimes be a hassle trying to boil your eggs to perfection.
They keep coming out too hard, or too runny.
And then you have to crack them open which can also be annoying,frustrating, and time consuming as well.
Luckily, the egg steamer (also called egg boiler and egg cooker) will most definitely fix all of these problems.
No longer will you have to wait on them with uncertainty as to when to take them out.
No longer will you have to crack the egg shells with little success.
Furthermore, you will even be able to perform some other impressive feats as well.
These include, making different egg styles, such as poached eggs, as well as steaming other ingredients and vegetables as well.
All in all, the machine is quite cheap and is well worth it's cost.
Especially considering that it will last you for a very long time.
And if it doesn't, then the warranties on these options will replace your broken egg steamer one with a new egg steamer.
Here is an example of what it would look like if you had an egg steamer.
Well, I might have exaggerated it a little, but you get the point.
An egg steamer will make things much easier for you, and safer as well.

The Dash deluxe is probably the best option out there for preparing a boiled egg.
The egg steamer just has everything you would need in it.
Here are its components:
As you can see, it comes with a lot of options:
- A Lid that is transparent so you can see what is happening inside, and secure so you don't lose any steam.
- Power Light that illuminates when you switch it on, then starts buzzing once your eggs are ready.
- A measuring cup that has a 2 in one use: as you can fill in some water to the exact right details to get the perfect eggs, and it also has a small hole punch that you can use on the top of your egg (to make it easier to remove later on)
- An omelette tray that you can add one or 2 eggs to and get a quickly prepared omelette.
- Poaching trays that can carry up to 7 eggs
- and boiling trays that can hold up to 12 eggs
As you see, for the price you pay, this set has quite a range of options to choose from.
Not only that!
But it also has 5 different color options as well.
The colors available are:
Aqua/ Purple/ Black/ Red/ white
And finally, you get a 1 year manufacturer warranty.
Even though your steamer will most likely work for more than a couple of years, even when used often.
1.To make it easy to peel your eggs after you have done them, you can puncture the egg from the top (before you start boiling), using a pin that comes with the measuring cup.
2. Make sure you remove the cover carefully once it is ready. Steam is hot, and can catch you by surprise if you don't see it comming.
so please pay attention and be careful.
3. Prepare a cold bowl (as cold as possible), to throw your eggs in once they are ready. The colder, the faster the eggs will peel.

2. SANJIANKER XB-EC06 14 Egg Capacity Egg Cooker
The SANJIANKER XB-EC06. What a name right? sounds super robotic. Well, apart from that, this egg steamer is going to feed a whole family, or even two in one go, 14 eggs at once! and it only takes a few minutes.

- Made out of stainless steel, so won't rust
- It steams vegetables, but isn't 100% efficient.

On the right you can find an example of this steamer being used for other uses as well.
In fact you can steam a lot of other things in it, including vegetables, buns, seafood and of course eggs.
There are slight differences between this option and the first option in the list.
One difference is that, this egg steamer has 14 slots for eggs.
Another is that this egg steamer comes with a 3 year warranty instead of a 1 year warranty.
Furthermore, when the food is finally ready, this steamer won't make a buzzing noise to alert you that the eggs are ready. Instead it will just turn off.
This could be a good thing or a bad thing. If you are trying to be as quiet as possible in the morning not to wake people up, or you don't like loud noises in general, than this option could be a better choise.
The downfalls of this egg steamer, is that it has 14 holes for eggs, even though egg cartons come in packs of 12.
It is a weird number to go for, however it is not the end of the world. If you eat eggs often, you will buy eggs often, and won't have such a problem.
Whats more, is that this egg steamer comes in Stainless steel, which means that it won't be getting rusty any time soon. It should last you a long time before you will face any problems.
And finally, I have to talk about the customer service.
The customer service for this steamer are just amazing.
They are very nice, and try to make your life as a buyer as perfect as possible.
If you don't like the product, they will quickly help you out.
If you have questions about it, you can easily contact them and get quick responses as well.
Although this egg steamer has a double handle design to make it easier to lift once the eggs are ready.
You still have to be careful.
Open the lid so that the steam goes away from the your face and not towards it. Otherwise, you could expect to get a burn.
Luckily, this machine automatically turns off when the egg is ready, so it is friendly for kids to use, as long as you mention to them beforehand to be careful when opening the lid when it's ready.
Who is this for?
The SANJIANKER XB-EC06 egg steamer, is perfect for big families, who have big appetites. As well as anyone who wants to be as quiet as possible in the morning, not to wake others up.

Cheaper as well.
You can prepare 7 eggs at once with this option.
Instead you can prepare some omelettes instead.
However, for the omelettes you will only be able to realisticlly prepare one or two at a time.
It comes with a measuring cup, to help you know what type of egg you are looking for.
And then once you press the button, it works untill it is ready.
Then, it buzzes a sound so you know that it is ready.

If you get this option, and decide to make poaches eggs or other options, make sure to read the instructions.
( Some users didn't, and ended up melting their plastic pieces because they placed them in the wrong place).
And as usual, stay safe when opening your lids.
Who is this for?
If you are living alone, or with only 1 or 2 other members, and you really like eggs, but don't have too much space to store the machines in.
