I have been married almost twenty-five years, but I will admit, it wasn’t until maybe three or four years ago that I learned to hard boil eggs without using a cooker. Um, life changing! When my mother got her Instant Pot DUO60 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Maker and Warmer Instant Pot DUO Plus 60, 6 Qt 9-in-1 Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Yogurt Maker, Egg Cooker, Sauté, Steamer, Warmer, and Sterilizer, she was amazed at how easy hard boiled eggs were to do in it. I thought, why bother when all you have to do is boil water.
Needless to say, once I used the Instant Pot, I was sold. It was easy, and the eggs peel cleanly.
At first I think I was scared of all the buttons. (And this one isn’t even the top of the line. My husband, the cook, really wanted the Bluetooth one.)
But it couldn’t be more simple!
When you get your Instant Pot, it comes with the rack. Set this in your pot, add one cup of water, and then set your eggs on the rack. You can also buy a the egg trivet, which I have coming from Amazon. This will hold your eggs upright. My mother loves this because it keeps her yolks centered and her Deviled Eggs are prettier.
Searching the Web, you’ll find lots of different cooking times for your eggs. This is dependent on how you want them to turn out. For me, I use the 6, 6, 6 method.
Step One: Add one cup of water to the pot with the eggs.
Step Two: Hit Pressure Cook and set it for six minutes. This means, once it builds pressure, it will cook the eggs under pressure for six minutes.
Step Three: Using the preset Keep Warm function, leave the eggs for 6 minutes before releasing the pressure.
Step Four: Remove the eggs from the Instant Pot and put them in an ice water bath for six minutes.
Step Five: Peel and serve!
I’m sold! This is just one of the great things I love to make in our Instant Pot. What are some of your favorite recipes?
