Dash Rapid Egg Cooker– Design and Features
This appliance requires no assembly, simply take it out of the box and it’s ready to go.
When you un-box the unit you should find the contents includes the base, a poaching tray, omelet tray, 6 egg holder tray, measuring cup, recipe book and recipe database access.
The Dash Egg Cooker looks like your typical egg cooker. In terms of its external appearance it comes with a base that houses the heating plate, and a transparent lid.
As mentioned earlier, the base is available in a variety of colors; black, red, white and aqua. The lids are also distinguished by the Dash logo having the same color as the base.
It’s main selling point is that the unit is capable of preparing perfect eggs quickly without the need for boiling water on the stove top.
This will ensure you save time without having to deal with cleaning up extra pans.
You can control unit using a one touch power button on the front of the base. The lid is easy to remove allowing you to fill the base with water and load the eggs onto the tray.
The unit is fairly lightweight weighing in at approximately 1 pound. It is easy enough to move around a kitchen and when ready for storage.
Even though there is not a lot of weight to the unit it is well-constructed and does come with a 1-year manufacturer warranty.
Is it easy to use?
The user manual describes the best ways to use it for preparing your egg dishes, and the manual offers clear, step-by-step directions.
You get a sharp egg piercer with this machine, unlike some other models whose egg piercing tool was dull and actually cracked some eggs before we even began cooking.
With the egg piercer on this device, you gently poke a tiny hole in each egg before cooking to avoid cracking during cooking, and that process worked well for us. Our tests showed no cracked eggs once the cooking was done.
You’ll find this machine is easy to operate. All you do is add the right amount of water for the doneness level for the eggs you want to cook, turn the machine on and the power switch lights up to let you know the base is generating heat.
Once the water has evaporated, the device sets off an extremely loud alert to let you know that the cooking process is complete.
To control the doneness of the eggs you will need to adjust the amount of water you use.
This is easily done using the supplied measuring cup. If you enjoy eating omelets then you might want to spray the omelet tray with some non-stick cooking spray. This small step will ensure the omelets are easy to remove.
The buzzer is very loud, which will encourage you to shut the appliance off as soon and possible.
To switch the appliance off you can push the once touch button after the buzzer has sounded off or you can switch the unit off at the power point.
What about cleanup?
With the Dash Egg Cooker cleanup is easy. If you’re feeling super lazy then you may not clean it every day at all.
What you will notice is that if you don’t clean the heating plate on a regular basis that mineral deposits will quickly build up on the surface making the plate look rusted.
Don’t worry this is not rust as mentioned it’s mineral deposits that are left behind after the water has evaporated during a cooking cycle.
An easy way to remove the deposits is to use vinegar. Make sure the heating plate is dry and then pour some vinegar onto the surface.
You will need to leave the vinegar on the surface from a couple of hours at the minimum to help remove the mineral deposits. You may need to repeat this step a few times to get the desired results.
