Cuisinart CEC-7 Egg Cooker
We recently took a trip to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and found this egg cooker to be actually appealing in person. The Cuisinart Cuisinart CEC-7 Egg Cooker features a smooth, brushed stainless steel lid, and cooks poached and medium or hard-boiled eggs. The poaching tray holds up to 3 eggs; 2 egg holders included for hard-boiled eggs. There is also an automatic shut off. YES!

I have had this egg cooker for about two years and love it. So often gadgets seem clever but don't stand the test of time. This is truly a useful appliance and I use it every week.
It's small enough to stash in a cabinet when not in use. I don't find the lack of handle for the lower part and issue at all, nor is the egg holder flimsy.
It's easy to use and the eggs are perfectly cooked every time. One thing though, it does not have an auto shut-off (unless it's been updated). It has a beeper that tells you the eggs are done, but you must turn the unit off.
As for the egg piercer. It's recommended to pierce a hole in each egg to supposedly avoid cracking. I did that in the beginning, but don't bother now. It seemed there was a higher incidence of cracking with the hole than without. Rarely do I find an egg has cracked while cooking.
