About Hankscraft Egg Cookers

From the 1920s into the 1950s, Hankscraft made scores of models of these wonderfully simple egg cookers.

Place up to four eggs in the base, add a measured amount of tap water. place the domed cover on top, and plug it in. From there on, it's completely automatic. When the water is boiled away the eggs are done.

The degree of doneness is controlled by the amount of water placed in the cooker. Every model comes with complete directions on the bottom of the cooker including the amount of water to add for Soft, Medium and Hard.

Made of a sturdy glazed ceramic, they all measure 4.5 inches in diameter and 5.5 or 6 inches high depending on knob type.

If you like your eggs out of the shell, we offer an optional glass poaching dish . Just butter the inside, add your eggs and cook to your liking. $9 additional.


Lettuce Green

Hankscraft 599 Egg Cooker in Lettuce Green

Hankscraft began manufacturing its very popular easy to use egg cookers in the early 1930s with this Model 599. You simply place up to four eggs in the base, install the domed lid over them, pour a measured amount of tap water into the lid handle funnel, and plug it in. When the water is boiled away the eggs are done.

The degree of doneness is controlled by the amount of water placed in the cooker. By placing any heat proof custard cup under the dome these egg cookers can also poach eggs very nicely. Complete directions were placed on the bottom of the unit by the thoughtful folks at Hankscraft. This unit measures approximately 6 inches high by 5 ½ inches in diameter and is just about as perfect as we have seen an example of this model. The porcelain is perfect inside and out and the cord is new.

Sunbeam Automatic Egg Cooker, Second Version

This is the second model of egg cooker from Sunbeam, distinctive for its clear plastic tube mounted on top used to measure the water. On one end of the tube is a dial that one turns to move the red divider inside the tube; you use it to measure the water you put in the bottom of the cooker for soft boiled eggs.

You measure the water, put it into the well, place the flat ring in place, add the eggs, put on the lid and flip the on/off switch. When the cooker boils dry, it turns off automatically when the eggs are cooked just right.

For Hard boiled eggs, use the inside of the top to measure the water. Put the water in the bottom, put on the lid, switch it to on, and in no time you'll have up to six eggs hard boiled. There is even a sharp pin inside the lid to pierce the small end of the eggs.

This one is in excellent condition. You can also buy the accessory three-egg poaching tray for $35 additional. It comes with a detachable cord set and the original instructions.
