Read on to learn how to cook the perfect hard boiled eggs in your pressure cooker!
Cooking INSTANT POT Hard Boiled Eggs
Cooking eggs in the Instant pot is really simple. I love to use the 5-5-5 Method for cooking eggs in the Instant Pot but what exactly is that?
Well to put it simply, 5-5-5 is as follows:
- 5 Minutes On High Pressure
- 5 Minutes Natural Release
- 5 Minutes In An Ice Bath
And then the shell should peel off with ease!
Does Altitude Change Egg Cooking Times?
Of course, we don’t all live in the same town, county, state or country and the time for cooking eggs may need adjusting depending on the altitude at which you live. Therefore for some people cooking boiled eggs for 6-6-6 minutes or 7-7-7 minutes may work better. It’s a matter of testing it out and learning what works best in your kitchen and your Instant Pot!
No matter what length of time you cook your eggs- be sure to use at least one cup of water in your Instant Pot. This allows the pressure to build up and steam your eggs to perfection!
EGGUINS EGG HOLDER FOR COOKING HARD BOILED EGGS
If you don’t have an Egguins Egg Holder or an Eggbears Egg Holder you can still cook eggs in your Instant Pot. Either pop them directly into the bottom of your pressure cooker or use a trivet or metal egg holder. This will work really well.
However we all love fun gadgets and quirky gifts and both the Egguins and Eggbears egg holders make cooking your hard boiled eggs even more fun! This is something the kids might enjoy seeing too! After all, who wouldn’t love a Penguin Egg Holder?
how does this hardboiled penguin Egg Boiler work?
The Egguins Egg holder and Instant Pot accessory is a group of six penguins huddled around in a tight circle. Each Penguin has a hollow middle, ready for you to place the eggs before adding to your Instant Pot.
The Egguins egg holder cooks six eggs in one go, is black in color and is made from plastic – which is safe for boiling and using in a pot.
The egguins are a great serving tray as well, so once your eggs are ready, your family and guests will delight in this extremely cool server. If you’re saving your eggs for later, fear not! These fancy fellas will find comfort in the arctic temperatures of your fridge!
Egguins Egg Holder Specifications
The Egguins egg holder and Eggbears egg holders are 14.7 bu 12.1 by 12.6 cm. When taking the Holder out of the pot be careful and use a protective cloth or silicone mit. You can then serve your boiled penguin egg to your guests or use them to make egg salad or tasty Devilled eggs!
So what do you think? Do you love these Penguin Egg Cooker and boiled egg holder? We sure do. My daughter thinks they are super cute and we will be using these regular in our Instant Pot.
