When a chef is asked what they make when they don't feel like cooking at home, the standard answer is always eggs. There's a reason for that. Eggs are versatile and quick. They always seem to be in the fridge. You can fry an egg and put it over a bowl of rice with quick pickled vegetables. Or, take that same egg and make a mean sandwich with only a sprinkle of shredded cheese and hot sauce. OK, and maybe a few pickled veggies. 

But what if you could have eggs with even less effort? That's where the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker comes into the picture. The nifty gadget can hard-boil up to six eggs at a time, perfect if you want to whip up a tray of deviled eggs or poach a pair of eggs for dinner. Even better, it's on sale for under $17, that's 44% off the usual price on Amazon.

Whether you prefer soft boiled eggs with runny yolks (we call them "dipping eggs" in our house), cutting off the tops and dunking thin slices of toast for breakfast, or hard-boiled eggs to slice over a Cobb salad, the included measuring cup is clearly marked so you know how much water to add to get the egg you want. You can also make poached eggs for Eggs Benedict or fluffy cheese omelets with the included poaching tray and omelette tray. It's cheeky, but the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker plays a light musical jingle when it's done cooking, so you don't have to worry about setting a kitchen timer. 

This petite egg cooker is six inches tall and less than eight inches wide, and is beloved by Amazon shoppers with more than 13,900 five star ratings. One reviewer called it a "morning routine game changer," then added, "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork."

Shoppers repeatedly praised this egg cooker for its precision, and said their eggs were exactly the way they liked them. Many found this as a great alternative to having to stand watch over a boiling pot on the stove. 

"I don't think I'll ever go back to hard-boiling eggs in a pot," wrote one reviewer. "This little gem makes them perfect every time. And even better, every batch I've made so far (maybe a couple dozen eggs or so) has peeled beautifully."

Whether you're prepping a batch of hard boiled eggs at the start of the week or making a batch of egg salad, the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker can be a helpful time saver in the kitchen. Pick one up while it's available on Amazon for under $17.
