Yet another recipe that proves the Instant Pot can truly do it all.
Instant Pots are the holy grail gadget for cooking everything from slow-cooked pulled pork to perfect hands-off rice, creamy yogurt, and yes, hard boiled eggs. Hard boiled eggs were the first thing I ever made in my Instant Pot ($80; amazon.com) and they were the perfect dish to introduce me to the pot’s capabilities. There are widespread debates as to which Instant Pot setting works best for boiled eggs—Pressure Cooker or Steam—so I tested them both out.
While cooking hard boiled eggs in an Instant Pot was not better than other methods I’ve tried, it is a simple, hands-off way to cook this everyday protein bite. The best part of making hard boiled eggs in an Instant Pot is that the eggs were insanely easy-to-peel. After the cooked eggs chilled in an ice bath, their shells came off in nearly one entire piece. Try Instant Pot hard boiled eggs for the sheer satisfaction of easy egg-peeling (plus the convenience of making a large batch of eggs with little work).
