    Features to Look for

    When buying an electric egg cooker there are some features that you need to look for so as to be sure you are getting a good product.

    • Alarms: You don't want your eggs to be pre cooked or over cooked. So, an ideal egg cooker should also have both audio as well as visual alarms that go off when the eggs are ready. This will greatly help in your preparation of eggs.
    • Cleaning: Check whether it is easy to clean the cooker or not. Although, you may need an egg cleaner for the purpose. You don't want a cooker which doesn't have much space or is too curvy as it will be very difficult to clean the corners otherwise. This is a very important aspect of any item that you use in the kitchen.
    • Check the Water Capacity: Begin by checking to make sure that the egg cooker is well calibrated. To make it easy, check whether it is of a good and reputable brand or not.
