Hard Boiled Eggs In The Pressure Cooker

I gave this a try earlier today, and this actually works!

I had tried numerous other techniques to make the eggs peel easier, but none of them worked for me - adding baking soda to the water, rolling the egg on the counter, etc...

This worked, with one caveat though - you need to let the eggs cool a bit before trying to peel them. I got impatient and tried to peel one right after I took it out of my pressure cooker, and although it did peel ok, there was some sticking. The other eggs I put in a bath of ice water for a few minutes, and they peeled easily.

Who knew? lol. I thought for sure I would open it up and see a bunch of exploded eggs.

  1. Egg-cellent!
    I will give this a try. I adore my pressure cooker ;)
    Thank you.

    1. Did you use the lower pressure (of a 'duo' cooker)? Since I have only one pressure setting I haven't tried it.
