If you’re a big poached egg fan, the Hamilton Beach cooker should be one of your top choices. The device allows you to poach three eggs at a time, one more than most models. The Hamilton can also boil seven eggs at a time. It's the only option that doesn’t come with an auto-off feature, but it does include a timer.

If you’re looking for the Rapid Egg Cooker on steroids, this Dash Deluxe Rapid Egg cooker is for you. With the option to cook up to 12 eggs in minutes, this device is great for hosting brunch or just making deviled eggs. And if you prefer poached eggs, this egg cooker is a great choice—you can make seven at a time, compared to only one or two in the other options. Since the deluxe is two-tiered, you could even cook eggs on one level and steam dumplings on the other.
