A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards resulting from
entanglement or tripping over a longer cord. Longer detachable power-supply
cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in
their use. If a longer detachable power-supply extension cord is used:
1) The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at
least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and:
2) The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop
or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over
1. Never pull or yank on cord or the appliance.
2. To insert plug, grasp it firmly and guide it into outlet.
3. To disconnect appliance, grasp plug and remove it from outlet.

Helpful Tips & Suggestions
• 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.)
• Eggs should be stored in the carton in which they were purchased to keep them
from drying out and absorbing refrigerator odors. The eggs should be in the
carton large end up - this will help them stay fresh longer and will keep the yolks
• Don’t know if your eggs are fresh? Place them in a bowl of salted cool water. If
they sink, they are fresh – if they float, they are not.
• 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.)
• 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.
• 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.
• Fresher eggs (less than a week old) are harder to peel than those a little older.
• 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
• 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 colored and displayed decoratively should not
be consumed - enjoy their colorful display and discard. Cook extra eggs for eating
and consider the discarded eggs an inexpensive way to decorate.
• Hard cooked eggs make a colorful, flavorful and nutritious garnish. They can be
sliced, wedged, finely chopped or pressed through a fine sieve to make a
powder-like garnish.
• To serve soft or medium-cooked eggs out of the shell, break the shell through
the center 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.
• 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.
Cleaning Your Electric Egg Cooker
Always unplug your Chefman Egg Cooker from the electrical outlet before
Wash lid, cooking and poaching trays in hot, soapy water or in the top
shelf of a dishwasher.
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
discoloration of eggshells. However, discoloration of the eggshells does
not affect the taste of the eggs.
Wipe main body housing with a damp cloth.
DO NOT immerse in water.
Place clean cooking tray, poaching tray, beaker and egg holders inside the
egg cooker for storage.
Deviled Eggs
Perfectly cooked eggs from the Chefman Egg Cooker make our version of this
American picnic classic simple to prepare.
Makes 14 deviled egg halves:
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
1. 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.
2. Place the egg yolks in the work bowl of a 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.
3. Spoon the deviled yolk mixture into the reserved egg white halves. Or place
the deviled yolk mixture in a 1-quart freezer weight plastic bag. Cut about 1/4
inch 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.

Serving Tips:
 If you don’t have a “deviled egg” plate, make a bed of alfalfa or radish
sprouts on a plate to steady eggs for serving.
 To transport and store deviled eggs safely for a picnic, make filling and
place in sealed food storage bag. Place egg whites in separate storage
container. Chill both in cooler with ice. When you are ready to serve eggs,
pipe the chilled filling into the chilled whites and Voilà – you have safe
deviled eggs.
Egg Salad
This basic egg salad is great for sandwiches. It can be “dressed up” by adding
chopped green onion or shallot, chopped pickles, chopped sun-dried tomatoes or
chopped fresh herbs.
Makes about 2 cups/4 servings:
7 hard cooked eggs, completely cooled
1/2 stalk celery, about 4 inches, cut in 1-inch pieces
1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white or black pepper
Remove shells from eggs and discard. Cut eggs in quarters and reserve.
Place the celery in the work bowl of a 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.
