"If you happen to raise your own chickens or have access to really fresh eggs, a pressure cooker is the best way to make hard-cooked eggs. It doesn't really save time (the pressure cooker's usual claim to fame), but here's why it's great: it actually makes fresh eggs easy to peel!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I started boiling eggs in my pressure cooker recently and I love it! For my instant pot, I use the steam setting. Much easier to peel! (although my friend's farm-fresh eggs were still a challenge)
Perfection! I have been looking for a way to make pickled eggs. I have a good pickling recipe, but getting the hard boiled eggs properly cooked and out of the shells was a hassle. Now it is easy as can be.
This is my favorite way of making hard-boiled eggs. The eggs turn out perfectly and slide out of their shells. I accidentally skipped the part about allowing the pressure to drop for five minutes before quick-releasing the lid, but my eggs still turned out well.
Perfect cooking times. With the Insta-Pot we use the steam setting with low pressure. Remove eggs from the ice bath in about three minutes and peel.
Terrific way to make easy peel eggs!
Love cooking eggs this way. I didn't follow the directions completely. Having read reviews across the web, I decided to cook on manual rather than steam. I place 5 eggs on the trivet and added 2 cups of water for 3 minutes, then let it naturally release for 5 minutes - they came out medium - almost hard with a nice small dark area in the middle. Peeled perfectly - very happy with my first time experience with pressure cooking eggs!
