Key Features

10-egg capacity

This Cuisinart egg cooker model has a 10-egg capacity. This is a very good feature, as it is suitable for large families as well. Yet, it is still not that much to heavily affect its size and weight. Its compact, egg-shaped design allows super-easy storage and use in any kitchen and a 10-egg capacity at the same time.

Poacher

Cuisinart CEC is excellent for poaching eggs too. It makes perfect, delicious poached eggs without exception, every single time. However, even though the device does have the 10-egg capacity, its poaching bowl capacity equals 4 eggs at a time.

Auto shut off option is not available

This model by Cuisinart does not have the auto shut off option. However, it does have a high-quality, convenient timer which can help you with the cooking time.

Timer

The timer is crucial for this model because it, as we had already mentioned, does not have the auto shut off feature. The timer is connected to an audible alert and notification system. Therefore, you will not miss the chance to turn the device off and get the eggs out right in time.

3-year manufacturer warranty

Cuisinart CEC 10-egg capacity cooker comes with a 3-year manufacturer warranty. This is a very good warranty compared to other similar products. Furthermore, it is not a limited warranty, so you will definitely enjoy your egg cooker without fear.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: We cannot say that this is the best of the best. However, it is definitely the best model when it comes to the materials it was made from. A durable, stainless-steel lid and high-quality, thick plastic are combined in an interesting and compact shape. The choice of materials and superb workmanship guarantees durability and excellent performance.

However, the issue of being the best or not is up to you. This depends on your requirements. Do you need a capacity which exceeds 10 eggs? Do you want a vegetable steamer? If not, we highly recommend buying this egg cooker.

Answer: The omelet tray included in this package has a 3-egg capacity. The tray is made of a high-quality, BPA-free plastic. It is very easy to clean and maintain.

Answer: No. You are not obliged to use exclusively distilled water. However, it is recommended as distilled water lacks minerals found in tap and bottled water. The minerals react with the inner layer of the egg maker and slowly, but steadily form limescale.

It is possible to remove limescale. However, constant accumulation of this compound can damage your appliance. This is why using distilled water is highly recommended by most manufacturers, including Cuisinart.

Answer: The poaching bowl is made of BPA-free, durable, high-quality plastic. It is temperature-resistant and it doesn’t interact with food.

Answer: The maximum capacity for boiling is 10 eggs. You can cook a single egg if you like. The device will not suffer any damage if you do so. Always make sure you add enough water before you turn the appliance on.

Verdict

This Cuisinart CEC model has a 10-egg capacity for boiling, a 4-egg poaching bowl, and a 3-egg capacity omelet tray. The only big flaw of this model is the fact that it does not have the auto shut off feature. On the other hand, it is made of superb materials, including excellent stainless steel. The manufacturer offers a very good, 3-year warranty.
