Eggs were already pretty easy to make, but sometimes hard boiled eggs poached eggs scrambled eggs—those are a step up in difficulty. If you’re someone who has trouble cooking eggs, and want a little help, the Desh DEC005BK is where it’s at and can be one of the best kitchen appliances in your home. Want your eggs cooked a certain way? Then let’s talk business.

Why We Like It – Dash DEC005BK Review

With such a low cost, there’s no reason to pick this appliance up, especially if you love eggs but have trouble timing hard boiled or even soft boiled eggs.

  • Cooks more than hard boiled eggs
  • Can cook 6 eggs at once
  • Easy to use
  • Won’t replace your frying pan


Cooked eggs with a bit of salt are delicious, and so are hard boiled eggs. Timing hard boiled eggs in water, however, can be difficult. With the Dash Rapid Egg Cooker, we never had a problem ever again. The electric egg cooker was spot on every time. It didn’t matter if you wanted soft medium or hard medium. What made it so easy was the tray measuring cup, which helped perfectly measure how much water we needed for each kind of egg.


The Dash Egg Cooker DEC005BK comes with several quality of life features. For starters, its auto shut function prevents your eggs from overcooking. It’s stainless steel so it’ll last for quite awhile. Furthermore, it comes with an omelet tray, poaching tray, and measuring cup—all of which are dishwasher safe (non-electric parts). This not only makes it convenient for making different kinds of meals, but also great for easy cleanup. Since this is just an egg electric cooker, it doesn’t make elaborate meals like the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 or Ninja FD401 Foodi 8-qt. 9-in-1 Deluxe XL Cooker & Air Fryer.


It works well, certainly, and is way more convenient than making hard boiled eggs yourself. There’s value knowing the device will make perfect eggs every time and in a way you like. However, the Dash DEC005BK is a very niche device, like the Hamilton Beach Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker. It’s purpose is entirely dedicated to making eggs. And we think Dash understood, considering it’s only $20. This makes the decision to own one incredibly easy because when you need it, setting it up only takes a minute. When you don’t need it, the Dash DEC005BK won’t take up a lot of space.

Dash DEC005BK Review Wrap Up

The Dash DEC005BK is your one-stop device for making a variety of eggs, from hard boiled to omelet. It won’t replace your frying pan, but it will surely cook eggs in ways that you find difficult. Timing hard boiled eggs can be tough. It can handle up to 6 eggs at once, and it’s easy to use. What’s not to like?
