Why is it a good deal?

This little wonder isn't only inexpensive, it'll save you both time and money in the long run, since you'll be able to make your very own delicious egg sandwiches in a jiffy rather than shelling out at the local deli or fast-food place. Another reason? It just about never dips below this price.

Why do I need this?

The Dash Rapid Egg Cooker is designed to make your life easier by taking the guesswork out of knowing when your eggs are ready. All you need to do is place your eggs on the tray, add the specified amount of water, then set your preference and the timer. Once your eggs are ready, a buzzer will let you know and the cooker will shut off automatically.

This little guy won’t hog the counter (it’s only 6 by 7.5 inches) and it weighs just a pound. The set comes with boiling and poaching trays, an omelet bowl and a measuring cup. Since there's no need to hover over the stove until your eggs are perfectly cooked, you can spend that time doing ... well, anything else.

What reviewers say

More than 95,000 Amazon reviewers have given this handy little egg cooker a five-star rating.

"This is mom’s new go-to appliance. I make bento lunches for my son, and his favorite is hard-boiled eggs! I toss six eggs in with less than a quarter cup of water and 14 minutes later the unit shuts off by itself and I come back and easily peel the eggs. (I mean, the shells slide off!) I no longer have to wait for water to boil or watch and wait to turn off the stove. The eggs cook while the kids are in the tub, and voilà, lunch/breakfast is ready for the next morning. Custom omelets in a hurry is my next adventure!" related one customer.

"It’s convenient, compact and time-saving; this kitchen gadget is a game changer!" gushed another sunny-side shopper. "Once these puppies are cooked and cooled off, it is a breeze peeling and prepping. I used to hate making hard-boiled eggs, specifically because I’d have to peel them and lose a quarter of the egg with the shell; thankfully, none of that is the case with this device. Definitely recommend getting this product; you will not regret it!"

"I really love this egg cooker!" raved a final fan. "It's small and compact, so you can store it if needed and it will take up minimal space on your counter. ... Only complaint is that the timer alarm is SO LOUD, and unless you unplug the machine it will not stop. It's only really an issue if you want to use it again right away, though."

You'll score the best savings on the black version, but you can also grab one in red, aqua, yellow and more at varying prices.

And for storing your eggs? This popular container is so much sleeker and sturdier than a cardboard carton.

"Chick" this out: There are slots for 14 eggs and you can stack other items on top to make better use of the room in your fridge. Plus, you'll be able to keep track of your inventory without having to open the lid. 

"These egg containers are great quality, sturdy and stack nicely with no wasted space," shared a satisfied shopper. "We use them for farm fresh eggs and will be buying additional sets for family as we share the spoils of our coop."
