I love my egg cooker!

May 16th, 2019 at 08:09 am

I had some points to use up through an incentive program at work and I chose a Hamilton Beach Egg Cooker as my reward. I love it so much! It's super easy to use and can make 1-7 eggs at a time, hard boiled, soft boiled or poached. I really love that it only takes a few minutes to make perfect eggs, and especially that I can just make 1 egg at a time if I want, so its great for making an egg for breakfast. After I got mine for free I saw that they were on a pretty good sale on Kohls.com so I ordered some to be used for resell or for gifts.



I got 7 and paid $11.80 each.
(Marked $15.00 each for rummage sale)
