Eggs are super delicious but cooking technique can be hard to master. There is a very thin line between making perfect eggs or overcooked mess. This Dash go rapid egg cooker takes the risk out of the process and automates it as much as possible. It can prepare steaming, boiling and poaching eggs without any risk of overcooking or breaking the shell.
What is the Egg Cooker?
The Dash go rapid egg cooker is the easiest device you can find. You can cook up to 6 eggs at the time. Speaking of cooking techniques, you can choose between medium, soft, poached and hard boiled eggs. With a little imagination you can use it to prepare omelets. The cooker comes with a loud buzzer that tells you when the eggs are ready. The buzzer is really loud, the whole house will hear it.
The devise comes in many different colors to help you match it with other appliances in your kitchen. Most of the colors are bright, but there is also classic white design. Other colors feature aqua, black and red. The cooker is very compact and requires a minimal amount of countertop space.
Basically, Dash go rapid egg cooker is a countertop steamer. In order to cook eggs you should fill it with water (there is a measuring cup just for this) to match the cooking technique you want. The cup has measuring lines for soft, medium and hard eggs. It’s also labeled as poached and omelet on one side to help you cook the perfect eggs.
Then you need to add the right amount of water into the special plate and set the boiling tray into the slot on top (it looks like a disc with 6 holes for the eggs). Eggs go into their slots bottom up for even cooking. The device features two trays: one for making omelets and others for preparing poaching eggs.
To control the cooking process, you should change the amount of water you use. This is really easy to do with a measuring cup that is included to the set. If you love omelets in the morning, you should spray the tray with the cooking spray or it can stick to the surface. A little bit of oil will help you remove the omelet easily.
The Dash go rapid egg cooker is quite loud, which might encourage you to shut it off as soon as possible. All you need to do is to push the button when the alarm has sounded off or you can switch off the power button of the unit.
Design and features
There is no assembly required, it arrives in a box ready to use. No need to have an Allen key or screwdriver. The instructions are really short and you can master the technique in one minute. When you take the cooker out of the box, you will see the base, two trays, a separate tray for 6 eggs, a recipe book, a code to access an online recipe database and a recipe cup. So if you don’t have ideas about what to cook in your new dives, just refer to the book or the website.
The Dash go rapid egg cooker doesn’t have any extra features; it’s a standard egg cooker and nothing else. It features a transparent lid and a heating plate. The base comes in a variety of colors and the lid features the company logo made in the same color as the base. Thanks to the lid, you can check on the eggs during the cooking process.
The main selling point of the unit is that it can cook quickly without the need to do any preparation. This will save a lot of time in the morning. As a little bonus, you don’t need to do any extra cleaning. You can control the device with one power button on the front of it. The lid can be removed to fill the base with water and add eggs into their slots.
The weight of the unit is only 1 pound; it is one of the most lightweight units in the market. You can move it around the kitchen or store in a cabinet. Even though the cooker is lightweight, it’s solid enough to work for many years. It also comes with a 1 year warranty.
The plastic is BPA-free and very durable. The Dash go rapid egg cooker offers many versions to make eggs. For poaching, you need to take cook only 2 eggs at the same time. The boiling tray lets you make soft, medium and hard-boiled eggs. You will also get a separate tray for omelets, which helps you decide on how you want to eat your eggs this morning.
If you stuck with the cooking technique, the user manual helps you make perfect eggs every time with easy to understand, step-by-step instructions. You will also get an egg pierces with the device, which is a good deal. Many other egg cookers feature dull piercing tools that only crack the eggs before you even start cooking them.
With this egg piercing tool, you can easily poke a little hole in every egg before cooking. It will eliminate the risk of cracking during cooking. I have never gotten a cracked egg when using a piercer.
You will find the device is really easy to use. All you need to learn is how much water you should add to get the desired result. Then you just turn the cooker on and the power will switch the light to let you know the base is heating up. When the cooking process is done, the device will send a really loud signal to let you know your eggs are done. If you do everything right, the water will evaporate completely.
With this egg cooker, cleanup is really fast. If you don’t have time, you don’t need to clean it straight away. However, if you don’t clean the heating plate regularly, you will see that mineral deposits build up on the surface and it looks dirty and rusty. Still, you can easily remove the deposits with soapy water. Don’t cook eggs when they are on the plate because it will compromise the taste of food. If you leave the plate dirty for too long, you might have harder time with cleanup.
If you see mineral deposits, use vinegar to remove them. Just make sure the plate is dry and then pour a little bit of vinegar into the surface. Leave the plate with the vinegar for a couple of hours at the minimum to destroy the deposits (vinegar smells quite hard, so you can place the plate on the balcony, etc.). You might need to repeat the step a couple of times to get the best results. You will be surprised to see how lightweight the cooker is, so it’s really easy to find a place for it in a kitchen cupboard.
Could be more quick and automatic
Even though the manufacturer says the eggs will be done in a minute, the cooker need more time to heat up the ingredients. Boiling two eggs for medium requires around 8 minutes. Some people claim that even after 10 minutes they get almost raw whites and uncooked yolks. Poaching 2 eggs also takes around 9 minutes. If you like hard-boiled eggs, you need at least 15 minutes to cook them.
After poaching for 13 minutes, you will get eggs cooked to the medium. Even though it’s not 6 minutes as promised by the manufacturer, boiling on the stove takes 30 minutes and a bit of knowledge. However, if you’re in a hurry, it’s much faster to make scrambled eggs in a microwave which usually takes a minute.
The strong sides
The Dash go rapid egg cooker is a low-priced way to boil, poach and steam eggs without any effort. It’s really easy to use and clean, and there is no mess at all.
The weak sides
The poacher is manufacturer to prepare huge eggs, so you can’t find instructions about cooking small or jumbo eggs. Eggs take longer to prepare than promised by the manufacturer. The alarm sound is really loud and not pleasant at all.
The Dash Go Rapid cooker has gotten good reviews from customers and it’s a good investment for almost everyone. And if you don’t have much space in your kitchen, this little device can fit even the tightest spot.
