ASSEMBLY
INSTRUCTIONS
• To prevent the development of bacteria
in cooked egg dishes, eggs should not
be left at room temperature longer than
2 hours (count preparation as well as
serving time.)
To assemble your Cuisinart™ Egg Cooker:
1. Rinse the lid, poaching tray and
cooking rack in hot soapy water or in a
dishwasher (top rack only). DO NOT
submerge base of unit. Base can be
wiped clean with a damp cloth. Please
refer to the Cleaning Instructions
section for more information.
• Chill and refrigerate hard cooked eggs
immediately after removing from the
Egg Cooker. For best results, plunge
cooked eggs into a bowl of ice water this will stop the cooking process and
prevent a dark ring from developing
around the yolk.
2. Place poaching tray, beaker and egg
holders next to the unit. CAUTION:
Piercing Pin on base of beaker is
extremely sharp.
• Is the egg hard cooked or raw? Can’t
recall which ones you have cooked?
Play spin the egg. A cooked egg will
spin, a raw egg will wobble.
3. Position the cooking tray over the
base. Ribs on side handles should be
facing upward.
• Fresher eggs (less than a week old)
are harder to peel than those a
little older.
4. Place the stainless steel lid over the
cooking tray.
5. Plug in power cord. Your egg
cooker is now assembled for use.
• To peel hard cooked eggs easily, roll
gently on the counter, using the palm of
your hand to crack. Dip in a bowl of
cold water and begin peeling from the
larger end.
TIP AND HINTS
• When purchasing eggs, choose
only those eggs that are stored in a
refrigerator case. Refrigerate eggs
until ready to use. (For baking, eggs
may be placed in a bowl of warm
water for 5 to 10 minutes to bring
them safely to “room temperature”
for best baking results.)
• Hard cooked eggs in the shell will keep
for up to one week properly refrigerated.
Hard cooked eggs out of the shell
should be used immediately.
• Hard cooked eggs that have been
coloured and displayed decoratively
should not be consumed - enjoy their
colourful display and discard. Cook
extra eggs for eating and consider the
discarded eggs an inexpensive way to
decorate.
• Eggs should be stored in the carton in
which they were purchased to keep
them from drying out and absorbing
refrigerator odours. The eggs should be
in the carton large end up - this will help
them stay fresh longer and will keep
the yolks centred.
• Hard cooked eggs make a colourful,
flavourful and nutritious garnish. They
can be sliced, wedged, finely chopped
or pressed through a fine sieve to make
a powder-like garnish.
• Don’t know if your eggs are fresh?
Place them in a bowl of salted cool
3
8. Place lid on top of unit and slide
power switch to the “On” position.
Indicator light will be lit.
• To serve soft or medium-cooked eggs
out of the shell, break the shell through
the centre of the egg with a knife. Use a
teaspoon to scoop the egg out of each
half onto a serving dish or piece
of toast.
9. When liquid is completely evaporated,
the eggs will be cooked to the desired
consistency. Cooking time will vary
depending on the number of eggs and
consistency. See Approximate
Cooking Time Chart, page 5.
• To serve soft or medium-cooked eggs in
a cup, place the egg in a cup, small end
down. Slice off the large end, about one
inch from the top, using a knife or egg
scissors. Eat from the shell with a
teaspoon or serve with toast strips to
dip in the soft yolk.
10. When cooking is complete,
a continuous audible tone will sound
and indicator light will turn off.
11. Slide power switch to the “Off”
position. NOTE: Once the unit cools
off, it will automatically turn on again if
the switch is not in the “Off “ position.
OPERATION
1. FOR HARD, MEDIUM AND
SOFT COOKED EGGS:
12. Remove eggs immediately to
prevent overcooking.
1. Place egg cooker on a clean,
dry surface.
13. Run cold water over eggs.
2. Remove lid and cooking rack.
14. Eggs are now ready to serve.
3. Determine the consistency of cooked
eggs preferred (Hard, Medium or
Soft). Using the measuring beaker,
locate the consistency and number
of eggs to be cooked. Fill to the
appropriate line with cold water.
For best results, use distilled water,
since tap water has minerals that
can cause discolouration of the eggs.
For Additional Eggs:
1. To remove possible mineral
buildup, moisten a paper towel with
one tablespoon white
vinegar and wipe the heating plate
clean.
2. Repeat steps 1-14.
4. Pour cold water into heating plate.
5. Place cooking rack on top
of base.
* Cooking times will vary slightly
depending on number and size of eggs,
temperature of eggs prior to cooking,
temperature and amount of water used,
altitude and length of time eggs remain
in cooker following cooking cycle.
6. Rinse the number of eggs desired –
cook up to 7 eggs at one time.
7. Using the piercing pin located under
the beaker, pierce the large end of
each egg and place in cooking tray.
Rinse pin after use.

CLEANING AND

RECIPES
DEVILLED EGGS
Perfectly cooked eggs from the
Cuisinart™ Egg Cooker make
our version of this American
picnic classic simple to prepare.
Always unplug your Cuisinart Egg
Cooker from the electrical outlet before
cleaning.
™
Wash lid, cooking and poaching trays in
hot, soapy water or in the top shelf of a
dishwasher.
Makes 14 devilled egg halves
Clean heating plate with a paper towel
moistened with one tablespoon white
vinegar. This removes any mineral
deposits left behind from the water and
also works as an antibacterial agent. You
may wipe the heating plate using water
and a damp cloth if desired.
NOTE: If unit is not cleaned with white
vinegar (see above) on a regular basis,
minerals naturally occurring in water will
build up and cause discolouration of
eggshells. However, discolouration of
the eggshells does not affect the taste
of the eggs.
7
hard cooked eggs,
completely cooled
3
tablespoons low-fat
mayonnaise
1
tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1/8
teaspoon Kosher salt
3-5
drops Tabasco® or other
hot sauce
Remove shells from eggs and discard.
Slice each egg in half lengthwise. Wipe
the knife with a paper towel after slicing
each egg, to prevent the yolk from
showing on the white. Remove yolks and
arrange whites on a plate.
Wipe main body housing with a
damp cloth.
Place the egg yolks in the work bowl of a
Cuisinart® Mini Prep Processor and pulse
to break up, 5 times. Scrape the work
bowl. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt
and hot sauce to taste. Process for
10 seconds on Grind; scrape the work
bowl. Process 10 seconds on Chop;
scrape the work bowl.
DO NOT immerse in water.
Use the cord wrap feature located
underneath the unit to store extra cord.
Place clean cooking tray, poaching tray,
beaker and egg holders inside the egg
cooker for storage.
Spoon the devilled yolk mixture into the
reserved egg white halves. Or place the
devilled yolk mixture in a 1-litre freezer
weight plastic bag. Cut about 6mm off
one corner of the bag. Use the bag to
squeeze the yolk mixture into each egg
white half. Refrigerate until ready to
serve. Just before serving, sprinkle with
paprika or chopped fresh parsley
or chives.
6
Place the celery in the work bowl of
a Cuisinart® Food Processor. Pulse to
chop finely, about 15 times; scrape the
work bowl. Add the quartered eggs to the
work bowl; pulse 5 times to chop roughly.
Add mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and
pepper. Pulse until mayonnaise and
mustard are completely mixed in and
desired texture is reached, 10 – 20 times.
