One of my least favorite foods to prepare is one of the easiest foods to prepare in a pressure cooker.
I dislike boiling eggs in a pot on the stove, and I have had them blow up in the microwave.
Hard-boiled eggs are such a versatile food and ingredient and a protein so I love having them on hand just in case I need them.
No worries, either way, brand or basic electric pressure cooker, you WILL get the same incredible hard-boiled egg experience that I do.
So don’t be shy, pull out the pressure cooker!
Pulling out a pot, measuring water, adding in vinegar, and then praying they don’t crack is so Yesterday!
Electric pressure cookers make hard-boiling eggs so much easier.
Kitchen appliances that help me get the job done faster and so much better score high marks!
Grab that dozen of eggs, and let’s hard boil them!
It’s time to use your pressure cooker to create hard-boiled eggs.

Instant Pots are simple to use, and anyone can use them from novice cook to pro.
I had tried my old stove-top pressure cooker for making eggs and what a total mess!
Never did I have success in cooking hard-boiled eggs.Stove-top cooking with vinegar and cooling always left me with at least 2 eggs cracked.
If the eggs were not cracked they literally were split open.
Add to that the fact that I had to stand and make sure the water did not overboil, it became a time-suck.
Cooking hard-boiled eggs up until my Instant Pot and another brand of Electric pressure cooker had never been successful.
When I got a new pressure cooker as a gift, I said, I gotta try it again, why not right?
This time, I got it all right, and ever since I have been creating hard-boiled eggs for holidays and recipes in my Electric Pressure Cooker.
Using a Pressure Cooker yields a pleasing result.
Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs
What if you could crack a hard-boiled egg open and most of the shell was still intact?
Would that be amazing?
This is so easy, why didn’t I do it sooner?
Basically, the electric pressure cooker creates the best cooking environment for making the best ever hard-boiled eggs ever!
This how-to is good from one egg to 12, load up your pressure cooker and make them!
One word of caution is to ONLY place as many eggs as you have room on the steam rack.
I never place the eggs in the BOTTOM of the liner.
The Steaming Rack
Never fill the water beyond the steaming rack.
Use the steaming rack to hold the unboiled eggs.
You will use quick release not natural release upon the ending of the programmed cycle.
