Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs in the Rice Cooker


Making the perfect hard boiled egg just got easier if you own a rice cooker. Yes, you read that right. Rice Cooker = Perfect Egg.  No broken eggs, leaky egg whites, grey tinged yolks. No more guess work. Perfect egg. Every. Time.

Step 1.  Fill bottom of rice cooker with 1 cup water.

Step 2.  Place steamer basket insert on top. Place eggs inside. Sitting the eggs up on end versus on their side will center the yolk (if you're making deviled eggs) and give you space for more eggs.

Step 3.  Place cover on rice cooker and turn it on. Set timer for 20 minutes.

Step 4.  Remove eggs from rice cooker using tongs. They are very hot. Place in an ice bath to cool. Eat immediately or place in fridge for up to a week.

 Enjoy!  My kids sure do!  We'll be making a dozen tonight and coloring them for Easter.

my steamer has settings for steam, brown rice and white rice...which one? And doesnt the steamer have to get hot or preheated before you put eggs in there? thanks

No need to preheat the steamer. The eggs will be thoroughly cooked. Eggs boiled on the stove should be placed in cool water and allowed to come to a boil rather than adding them to boiling water.

When you say set the timer, which timer are you referring to? My rice cooker does not have a timer, so it shut off way before the eggs were done. (I followed the instructions in the owner's manual, and it did not mention a timer.)
