Hard boiling eggs should be easy, but it’s a task that a lot of people screw up. If you’ve ended up with a little grey ring around the yolk ( 😤), or the shells just won’t peel, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Even the Delish test kitchen screws them up every once in a while.
Which is why we were extremely intrigued by the 5-5-5 method, a technique I found on the Instant Pot Community page on Facebook. (There are over 1 million members.) The process is extremely easy:
- Add water to Instant Pot and place wire trivet (or special egg rack) on top. Place eggs on trivet.
- Seal Instant Pot and cook on High Pressure for 5 minutes.
- Let Instant Pot release naturally for 5 minutes. (Release any remaining pressure after 5 minutes.)
- Cool eggs in ice bath for 5 minutes.
And it works! Our eggs came out perfectly yellow and creamy in the middle. What’s nice about the method is that there’s no room for overthinking. Whether you brought the eggs to a boil over medium heat or high heat makes no difference here.
The only thing I’m skeptical about is whether or not the Instant Pot makes it easier to peel the shells. No, I didn’t have any trouble peeling my test batch. But older eggs typically help, and the eggs we tested with weren’t super fresh. We’ll test again with a newer carton and report back.
