KRUPS F23070 – Design and Overview
KRUPS appliances are always pleasing to the eye and the F23070 cooker is no different. The modern, stylish appearance and compact design could make the F23070 a permanent fixture on your worktop.
The KRUPS F23070 is a small appliance, measuring in at just 6.4 x 7.7 x 5.5 inches, which makes it ideal for placing on even the smallest kitchen counter-top.
The main body of the unit is split into 3 different pieces. The heating element is found in the base that is a white color. You then get the transparent egg holder in the middle that holds up the eggs over the heating element. And then there is the transparent lid.
A great design feature is the handle on the side of the appliance. When the buzzer sounds, you will easily be able to pick up the cooker using the handle and move the hot eggs to the faucet and cool them by running them under cold water, so you do not risk burning your hands.
When you un-box the unit you will also find a measuring cup and egg piercer. The egg piercer is used to pierce the egg to prevent the eggs from cracking. The measuring cup comes with the measurements appearing as raised marks on the side of the cup. You can then pick the level of doneness you want: soft, medium or hard by filling the measuring cup with water to the relevant.
KRUPS F23070 – What is it like to Use?
The Krups F2307051 Egg Cooker has a calibrated water-level indicator that allows you to pour the exact amount of water needed. A Signal indicates end of cooking cycle so eggs are not overcooked. Cleaning the appliance could not be easier as both the Lid and egg holder are dishwasher safe for quick clean up.
The F2307051 has a Dual switch to easily alternate between boiling and the keep warm setting. As you can seen in the below image it is easily to switch between these settings using the large switch.
To cool eggs quickly before serving the unit comes with a removable egg holder. It is great at cooking perfect eggs; either hard boiled or poached. Built to be compact the cooker does not take up much counter top space and has a modern design.
If your not a fan of boiled eggs then those of you who prefer poached eggs will be glad that you have the option to poach up to 2 eggs at a time using the supplied tray.

User Opinions and Rating
Jennifer Williamson, Amazon Customer Review
“I bought this egg cooker so my husband could have his favorite breakfast for his first fathers day, eggs Benedict. He was so excited. They turned out great! He now uses the cooker in the morning to poach eggs. I like it for hard-boiled eggs. They turn out perfect, no green yolks!
“The poaching cups are a little odd being oval so your poached eggs are long and thinner than what you would expect, but it really doesn’t bother us. I love how small the unit is and how the cord wraps around the base. It was a great price and is just perfect! ”
D Kaley, Amazon Customer Review
“I love hard boiled eggs. I used the poached trays once and they did a perfect job. This thing does what it’s meant to do. I like the loud buzzer people complain about- are they napping while the eggs are cooking? If that’s the only complaint, they won’t be happy with anything. I’m buying another one for my mom. She still boils eggs in a pan!“
Amerileira, Amazon Customer Review
“I figured I was being pretty frivolous, getting an egg cooker, of all things. However, this is a WONDERFUL gadget! It cooks the eggs perfectly, however you like them. I always had trouble getting them just right in a pan.
I can walk away & do something else because when it is finished it has a LOUD buzz that doesn’t stop until you turn it off. The poached eggs are good too, and the dishes are so easy to clean! This is well worth every penny if you like boiled or poached eggs.”
The overall impression you get from user reviews is that the Krups Egg cooker is easy to use and cooks eggs consistently good every time.
