The handy-dandy Instant Pot strikes again! Recently, I’ve been trying to make more of our go-to’s (like Chicken Cacciatore and Roast Chicken) in this multi-functional kitchen gadget. And, the latest staple food to get a go in the pressure cooker is hard-boiled eggs.

No, hard-boiled eggs aren’t that hard to make on the stove, but I love the ease of just pressing some buttons on the Instant Pot and then not having to think about them until the timer goes off. Hooray for multi-tasking!

I’ve also found that these Instant Pot Hard-Boiled Eggs are consistently easier to peel than those made on the stove. However, I don’t know if that’s a “proven” thing or if it’s just happened to have been the case for me. 🙂

The Incredible Instant Pot

It took me a couple of years before I broke down and invested in the Instant Pot. I just didn’t think I’d use it enough and didn’t want another gadget that would just sit and collect dust. Boy, was I wrong!

I think I use this pressure cooker thing-a-ma-jig more than my slow cooker, which for me is a lot. Although the whole releasing-the-pressure-kind-of-thing was a little intimidating at first, after I got used to it (I use a spatula handle to “release the pressure” for me), I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with it.

In addition to the whole cooking-faster-in-one-pot benefit, I really really like the fact that you can program it to do so many things, let it cook and not really think about it until the timer goes off. This is huge for me because I often try to multi-task while I cook (probably not the smartest thing to do) and will find myself with boiled over pots or burnt bottom pans. Whoops!
