There are definitely lots of pros to this appliance. Cook everything in one place with little mess, yes, please! I absolutely hate having to clean stuck-on egg bits from pans after making scrambled eggs. I can never seem to find the right non-stick pan that eggs won’t stick to!

DASH Rapid Egg Cooker Review

What is the DASH Rapid Egg Cooker? 

DASH Rapid Egg Cooker

The DASH Rapid Egg Cooker is a 6 egg capacity egg cooker for hard-boiled, poached, scrambled eggs and omelets. It has options for soft/medium/hard-boiled eggs and works fast to save you time and water. Weighing under a pound, the egg cooker is lightweight and compact. An auto-shut-off feature prevents overcooking (no more gray/green yolks in hard-boiled eggs!). 

With over 36k reviews on Amazon, this rapid egg cooker is very popular. It’s also affordable at a price point of $19.99.

When we received our DASH Rapid Egg Cooker, we were pleasantly surprised by how compact the appliance was. I am a big cook, and I love my kitchen gadgets. It’s essential to me to have something that doesn’t take up much space as I already have a storage unit filled with appliances. The egg cooker is 6.5 inches tall and 7.5 inches wide, taking up less than a foot of space!

The egg cooker comes with a boiling tray to make hard-boiled eggs (cook up to 6 at a time), a poaching tray (cooks up to 2 eggs at a time), and an omelet tray (cooks up to two eggs at a time), a measuring cup for water, and a handle attachment to help lift the boiling tray.

At first glance, the omelet tray is small. Think petite single-serving versus the giant ones you get at a diner. 

Also included is an instructions manual. The booklet outlines how to cook different types of eggs as well as recipes. You’ll find other foods you can cook at the very end of the booklet, such as broccoli!

How to Use the DASH Rapid Egg Cooker? 

Though the egg cooker is straightforward to use and does work rapidly, it is not foolproof. There is some experimentation with how much water to add as it does not correlate to what the manual says. This isn’t a dealbreaker; it just means there is some trial and error to achieve the perfectly cooked eggs you want. 

Even with this limitation, the egg cooker is much more efficient than having to boil water stovetop. 

How to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs with the DASH Rapid Egg Cooker: 

Making hard-boiled eggs is super easy with this cooker. 

  1. Start with the unit unplugged. 
  2. Use the provided measuring cup to pour the designated amount of cold water onto the heating plate.*
  3. Insert boiling tray handle into the boiling tray and place it on top of the heating plate. 
  4. Add eggs to the boiling tray slots (up to 6 eggs). 
  5. Cover the lid and plug in the cooker. 
  6. Press the power button to start cooking. 
  7. When the eggs are done, and the water has boiled off, the machine will sound (a jingle will play). Press the power button to silence the buzzer. 
  8. Uncover the lid and remove eggs with tongs. Be careful when opening the lid as it will be hot and steamy.
  9. Place eggs in cold water to stop cooking. 

Notes: 

  • The amount of water placed into the boiling tray in step #2 will change depending on how many eggs you use and the size of the eggs. For 6 eggs, I filled the measuring cup up to the hard-boiled line and then added another half of the cup. This was the perfect amount and the eggs cooked perfectly. 

How to Make Poached Eggs with the DASH Rapid Cooker:

Poached eggs are significantly easier with the appliance, though similar to the hard-boiled eggs, you have to fiddle with the water measurements. 

  1. Fill the provided measure cup with cold water to the “Omelette/Poached” line. Pour onto the heating plate.*
  2. Place the boiling tray over the heating plate. 
  3. Lightly spray cooking oil onto the poaching tray and place it on top of the heating plate. 
  4. Break an egg into the poaching tray slot (capacity for 2 eggs). 
  5. Cover the lid, plug into the socket, and press the start button. 
  6. When the buzzer sounds, turn the power off. Carefully remove the cover lid, be careful with the hot steam. 

Notes: 

  • The first time I used the poaching tray, I used both slots to make 2 eggs. I followed the directions for the water, and it was not enough. The bottom of the poached egg was still runny. I realized I need to double the water for 2 eggs. The poached eggs turned out wonderfully after I got the water ratio right. It cooked fast, comes out of the tray easily, and had a great texture. 
  • If you cook and find your eggs are runny, simply add some more water to the heating plate and cook again.

How to Make an Omelet with the DASH Rapid Cooker:

Omelets are my favorite thing to make so far with the cooker. They turn out really nice, and I love the ease of making it. 

  1. Fill the measuring cup with cold water to the “Omelette/Poached” line. Pour water onto the heating plate.*
  2. Place boiling tray on top of the heating plate. 
  3. Spray cooking oil to the omelet tray and place it on top of the boiling tray. 
  4. Add your eggs and any fixings to the omelet tray. 
  5. Cover the lid and plug in the appliance. Press the power button to start cooking. 
  6. When the buzzer sounds, turn the power off. Carefully remove the cover lid, be careful with the hot steam. 
  7. Remove eggs with a spatula. 

Notes: 

  • I used more water than the marking on the measuring cup for the omelet. My first omelet was not cooked fully underneath. I used 1.5 times the designated amount, and this cooked perfectly. 
  • If you find the bottom of your omelet is runny, add more water to the heating plate and cook again. 

What Else Can You Make in the Egg Cooker? 

I was pleasantly surprised to see that I could cook other items aside from eggs in the cooker. Since it is a steamer, it works great with veggies. Here are some items you can cook: 

  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Edamame
  • Frozen Corn

Bowl of green Broccoli

Regarding the DASH Rapid Egg Cooker review, this feature is a huge plus in my book. I love that I can use one appliance to make breakfast and have a side of veggies. It really helps with keeping the dish load down. However, due to the compact size of the cooker, you can’t make huge amounts at a time. It really is for one serving. So if you are cooking for a family, I don’t suggest using this to steam veggies. 

For breakfast, this works for me as I only cook for myself. So far, I have tried steaming broccoli and spinach with great success. 

How to Clean the Egg Cooker: 

One thing I absolutely love about this egg cooker is how easy it is to clean. I HATE doing the dishes. This appliance cleans really easily, and that really cuts my workload to focus on other things. 

After you are done cooking, let the machine cool down. You can wash the boiling tray, poaching tray, omelet tray and cover the lid in the sink with warm soapy water. When the appliance has fully cooled, wipe down the heating plate with a wet cloth. 

And that’s about it!

You can store all the parts within the cooker, so that makes it super easy to store. 

Over time you may need to do a deeper cleaning of the heating plate with a water/vinegar solution to remove mineral deposits. The manual mentions the egg cooker won’t rust. 

DASH Rapid Egg Cooker Review: Should You Get One? 

Overall, I do recommend this product. Ever since I got it, I have used it every morning for my breakfast.

Pros: 

  • Easy and efficiency
  • Compact
  • Affordable
  • Easy to Clean

Cons: 

  • The water measurements needed do require some experimentation to cook the eggs fully. 
  • Some people don’t like the buzzer sounds at the end of cooking. I don’t mind it; it’s nice-sounding music. 
  • When using the appliance to steam veggies, keep in mind the size is small.

If you’re looking for an egg cooker that cooks rapidly and doesn’t require much work, this is it.
