The Instant Pot electric pressure cooker has become my FAVORITE, easy way to make perfect hard boiled eggs. It’s really a method of steaming rather than boiling, and if you’ve tried my old trusty steaming method for the perfect hard boiled eggs, you can imagine how amazing this method is! Eat them as a snack or make these easy deviled eggs! Once you’ve done it in the  Instant Pot you’ll never look back at another method ever.

Why the Instant Pot is the best Method to Cook Eggs

There are so many reasons the Instant Pot is a great tool in the kitchen, but one of the best uses of this pressure cooker is how perfect they cook eggs. If you’ve ever struggled with overcooked, undercooked or hard-to-peel eggs you are going to love this device as much as I do! This machine takes the guess work out of making hard boiled eggs. All you do is place them in, add your water, close the lid and let steam! Then transfer to an ice bath and peel! So simple, and peels PERFECTLY every time. A total game changer. I just love my Instant Pot!!
