Product – Bella Egg Cooker Model 

Where can you get the Bella Egg Cooker – Amazon 

I love boiled eggs, but I don’t love how long it takes to cook them. You wait for the water to boil, then for the eggs to cook, and lastly, you struggle to determine when the eggs are indeed done. My method of telling when my boiled eggs are done? Did the eggshell crack? Done.

It’s all a pain. I will test the Bella egg cooker to see if it cooks eggs faster.

Bella Egg Cooker Review

I wanted to test how the product company stated you could cook eggs—boiled, poached, and omelet style.

How to Cook Boiled Eggs in an Egg Cooker

I filled the egg cooker base with water per the measuring cup recommendation. I then filled the boiled egg tray with 6 eggs, leaving the center of the tray without an egg. As mentioned before, there was no piercing tool in the box; thus, I left the eggs whole.

In my head, I had an image there were going to be eggs splattered everywhere, but this is what I m here for – To test! I placed the egg cooker tray on the base, turned on the power, and let the eggs cook for the recommended 17 minutes for hard-boiled eggs.

Hard Egg Test Results

The eggs did not burst like I thought they were because I did not use the egg piercer. There were also no cracks on any of the eggs. But what did it look like on the inside?

I cracked the shell of the egg and peeled it shell from the egg. The egg was smooth. The knife I used to cut right through was like a hot knife cutting through butter.

Yes, it was that easy. The egg was perfectly hard-boiled. I am very impressed and satisfied as this was the sole purpose I bought the egg cooker for boiled eggs.

How To Cook Poached Eggs In An Egg Cooker

I filled the egg cooker base with water per the measuring cup recommendation. I placed the egg tray for the boiled eggs on the base first, then put the poached egg tray on top of it as the poached egg tray would burn as it would be directly on the egg cooker base. I cracked one egg into one side of the poached tray, turned on the power, and let the eggs cook for the recommended 10 minutes for poached eggs.

Poached Egg Test Results

Before cooking the poached egg, I had no idea what a poached egg looked like, but I was not impressed with the results.

I had to pry and then dump the egg from the tray. The egg did not come out clean. Instead, the egg white came out in chunks, followed by the oozing yolk. Honestly, it made me gag a little.

Chunks were also left behind in the tray that I had to scrap out. An ultimate egg fail.

How To Cook An Omelet In An Egg Cooker

I filled the egg cooker base with water per the measuring cup recommendation. I placed the egg tray for the boiled eggs on the base first, then put the omelet tray on top of it. Like the poached egg tray, the omelet tray would also burn as it would be directly on the egg cooker base.

I cracked and scrambled an egg in a bowl, poured it into the omelet tray, and then added some shredded cheese to my omelet. I turned on the power and let the egg cook for the recommended 10 minutes for omelets.

Omelet Results

I had high hopes for the omelet but considered it a failure, like the poached eggs. The texture was spongy. I will continue to cook my omelets on the stove.

Egg Cooker Cleaning Test

There was a weird brown residual left in the egg cooker base after all of the egg cooking tests were done. So this was the perfect time to test how easy it was to clean it. 

First, I tried to clean the base with only a damp paper towel, but it did not remove any brown residual. Next, I took a drop of Palmolive Oxy dishwashing liquid with a damped paper towel and wiped the base, but it only removed a faint amount of the brown residual. Lastly, I sprayed Dawn Power wash spray and wet the paper towel thoroughly. It got some of the brown residual off, but there was still a significant amount left on the base.

The base looked like no attempts were made even to clean it. The cleaning experience is the opposite of the claim of easy to clean.

Lessons Learned After Initial Testing

Lesson #1 – READ directions CLOSELY. My friend has an egg cooker and he told me that he lost the “hole poker thing”. I figured since I did not see an obvious egg hold poker tool in the box that my egg cooker was different and did not require one. WRONG.

The hole poker tool was on the underside of the water container with a cover. It made life much easier and now I don’t have to fear my eggs will burst while cooking. 

Lesson #2 – Use cooking spray to prevent the eggs from possibly sticking to the tray. 

Final Thoughts

I bought the egg cooker primarily to boil my eggs faster and it did just that. In regards to the other egg types you can cook in the cooker- Epic fail. Although the egg cooker technically did not pass my testing requirements, it does not stand in the way of me being satisfied with the product.
