Key Features

6-egg capacity

The capacity of this egg cooker is 6 eggs at a time. This is suitable for a single person, two people or a 4-member family. Users often wonder whether they can prepare a single egg in this 6-capacity cooker and the answer is yes.

Poacher

This beautiful appliance comes with 2 separate poaching trays. You can use those trays on the upper level of the cooker. In this way, you can prepare both boiled and poached eggs simultaneously. However, the maximum capacity of the poacher is 2 eggs at a time. It makes very delicious poached eggs perfect for making the famous Eggs Benedict.

Auto shut off option

This device has a built-in timer connected to the auto shut-off system. As this is a versatile model which allows preparing two different kinds of eggs at the same time, it is important to have the auto shut off feature, as people often get confused with the time. With this feature, you will never frown upon your overcooked eggs.

Timer

The timer is another convenient and handy feature of this Gourmia model. It allows setting the time according to the cooking option or choosing it based on your own preferences. As already mentioned, the timer is connected to the auto shut off for extra-convenient egg preparation.
