This Is the Secret to the Best Instant Pot Boiled Eggs
Whether you love or hate the Instant Pot, you have to admit that it makes boiling eggs a breeze. The little silver rack that comes with the Instant Pot is certainly handy—it holds up to a dozen eggs, and its side handles allow you to easily remove all the eggs at once.
But what if I told you there was an even better Instant Pot accessory out there? One that could produce perfect, crackless hard-boiled eggs every time?
My friends, behold OXO’s silicone egg rack:
Isn’t it oddly mesmerizing? The honeycomb-shaped rack is more supportive, easier to clean, and easier to handle than the O.G. silver egg rack.
The only downside to OXO’s version is that it only holds nine eggs at a time. But that problem has a simple fix: Just stack two on top of each other to boil 18 eggs at once!
Here’s how to use the silicone egg rack:
- Add a cup of water to the Instant Pot.
- Place the eggs directly onto the rack.
- Set the Instant Pot to high pressure for five minutes.
- Let sit for 2-3 minutes, then release the pressure.
- Place them into an ice bath before peeling.
There you have it! Perfectly boiled eggs with no cracks—a gamechanger when you're boiling the eggs for Easter dying purposes.
The best part? The silicone rack is only $11.99 on Amazon.
