Have you been on the fence about spending the $100 on an Instant Pot. However, the ease with the way the shells come off, and the fact that it takes only 5 minutes to cook is reason enough to get an electric pressure cooker.
Cooking eggs with an Instant Pot is absolutely amazing. Cooking eggs with an Instant Pot is so easy, so simple, so what you need.
If you cook/hard boil eggs for a healthy snack, or if you just cook eggs once a year for Easter cooking it in an IP is the way to go. Cooking 12 eggs perfectly, and having their shells come off easily, simply, and smoothly is the reason I sold my husband on why we needed yet another cooking appliance.
Sure, I love cooking applesauce in minutes, and I love how tender pork chops are (recipe coming soon), but hard cooked eggs... amazing!
Instant Pot Hard Boiled/Cooked Eggs
Active Time: 3 minutes
Inactive Time: 15 minutes
Servings: up to 12 eggs/1 dozen
1 c. water
12 eggs, at most
- Place 1 cup of water in the bottom of your Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker.
- Place the pot rack, that came with the Instant Pot, in the bottom. A picture of the rack is shown above.
- Lay as many eggs as you want on top of the rack. I was able to create a tight fit with 12 eggs.
- Seal your pressure cooker, and set your Instant Pot to Manual for 5 minutes on High Pressure.
- Once it reaches pressure and cooks for 5 minutes, let it naturally release for 5 minutes. That means just let the pressure cooker cool on its own without touching anything for 5 minutes.
- After a 5 minute natural release do a quick release and then use tongs to remove the eggs and place them in a bowl of cool water for 5 minutes to stop the eggs from cooking. If you let the eggs naturally release longer than 5 minutes, or if you don't place them in cold water the eggs will keep cooking and that is when you will get the green edging around the yolk.
- Simply and easily remove the shells and enjoy.
- I love a simple deviled egg recipe, but this healthier version is delicious as well. Tho, egg salad is always amazing as well.
- Store cooked eggs in the refrigerator. I prefer to keep the eggs in the shell cooked until ready to use or eat.
