The Instant Pot electric pressure cooker has become my FAVORITE, easy way to make perfect hard boiled eggs (using the 5-5-5 method). It’s really a method of steaming rather than boiling, and if you’ve tried my old trusty steaming method for the perfect hard boiled eggs, you can imagine how amazing this method is! Eat them as a snack or make these easy Instant Pot deviled eggs!
