Perfectly Cooked Hard Boiled Eggs in the Crock Express

Perfectly Cooked Hard Boiled Eggs in the Crock Express

No more boiling water on the stovetop to get perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs! Use the Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker on pressure cooker mode and in only six minutes you will have perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs in the Crock Express!

I struggle with cooking hard boiled eggs on the stove top, because I can’t stand waiting for the water to boil. Using the Crock Express on pressure cooker mode is a game changer. It makes hard boiling eggs so incredibly easy. It is virtually foolproof and gives you beautiful yellow yolks every single time!

Just place the desired amount of eggs on the trivet. Add one cup of water to the inner pot. I ordered the egg steamer basket for pressure cookers, but it only allows you to steam six eggs at a time. If you want to do the whole dozen, it’s easier to just lay them all on the trivet on top of one another. Otherwise, the egg steamer trivet is a great accessory for the Crock Express.

Place the lid on lock and make sure your seal is set to the sealing position. Press steam and adjust the time to six minutes. I experimented with this many, many, many times and no matter how many eggs you have this is the perfect time. You need to have an ice water bath ready, so that you can immediately remove the eggs to stop the cooking process. Otherwise, they will continue to cook and have gray outer edges.

I have been experimenting with them and anywhere from 6-8 minutes is great. It just depends on how you like the yolks. I like a less done creamier egg, so I have been doing 6 minutes, but if you don’t then 7 to 8 minutes will cook them more throughly. You must take them out immediately and get them in the water bath or they will overcook.

Be careful removing the eggs as they will be extremely hot. I use a large serving spoon or tongs to very lightly remove them. Once cooled, store them in air tight containers or Ziploc bags for healthy on-the-go snacks!

    I’m confused. I followed the directions to do boiled eggs and all mine is doing is heating up and steam everywhere. How long does it take for the timer to start?

      It takes about 10 minutes to come up to pressure so always add that to your cooking time. Make sure your valve is in the sealing position. You will see some steam come out as it comes up to pressure and then it will subside and start counting down on the timer.

      Quick question, your video says 8 mins but your recipe says six. Which is it? I followed the written instructions this morning. I noticed this after I had already started the machine.

        Yes, thank you for bringing this up! I have been experimenting with them and anywhere from 6-8 minutes is great. It just depends on how you like the yolks. I like a less done creamier egg so I have been doing 6 but if you don’t take them out immediately after 8 minutes and get them in the water bath they will overcook. 🙂 I will make sure to fix that and add this into the blog post for future readers. I appreciate you letting me know!

      YAY! Love hearing this. How many minutes did you cook them? I have been experimenting between the 6-8 minute mark and think I like 6 minutes better. That way I don’t have to rush getting them in the water bath as quickly as I do cooking them 8 minutes! Lol
