    Hi there, still waiting on my first egg but in preparation for its arrival: does anyone have a specific brand of egg cooker that they would recommend? I am looking for a quality machine that can save me the time and hassle of regular boiling of eggs (which I seem to be terrible at).

    Thanks!

    I have a food steamer that has an egg setting . It works great . I rinsed under cold water and the eggs peeled nicely .

    On one of the 'peeling boiled eggs' threads someone recommended the Henrietta Egg Cooker. Never even seen one of those in the store.

    I have an "egg-perfect egg timer" that I use. Works great. You just put it in the pot with the eggs and water, cook till the eggs are the doneness you want. It will start to turn dark around the outside edge and when the dark reaches the doneness you want, just remove the eggs from the hot water, crack them just a little bit and drop into ice water. Easy peasy to peel that way.

    Amazon has a TON of these machines (like the Henrietta Egg Cooker) and I figured that colks here would be more likely to use these, as they've presumably got a lot of eggs.

    But I guess I was mistaken, sounds like most people boil them the old-fashioned way.
