I found this recipe on a friend's web site and decided to give this a try. I use a small rice cooker (1 liter) with a steamer tray, a steamer basket in a pot works equally as well. The size of the steamer basket, how many eggs, size of the eggs, if eggs are layered, and even elevation will play a role in the time to get perfect hard cooked eggs.

Servings: eggs
Instructions
  1. Add about 1 to inches of water to your rice cooker insert and add the steamer tray and cover, if using a pot with a steamer basket, add the basket then add water to where it just touches the bottom of the steamer basket then cover. Turn the rice cooker to Cook setting and for a pot, turn to medium to high heat. Get the water boiling and making steam.
  2. Add the eggs to the steamer tray once the water is boiling, for a pot, remove from heat, add the eggs then put back on the heat. For a pot, just use the heat needed to maintain a gentle boil.
  3. Set your timer for 6 minutes for soft cooked and 10 minutes for hard cooked with a slightly soft yolk center, or 12-15 minutes for fully cooked through yolks. (I used 15 minutes and the eggs were perfect). If you are using two layers of eggs, increase the time by 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Place a large bowl in the sink and turn on the water, when the time is up on the eggs, transfer the eggs with a slotted spoon into the water in the sink, keep the water running into the bowl for 5 to 10 minutes to cool the eggs.
  5. When the eggs are cooled, take each egg and crack all over and return to the water. Once all eggs are cracked, start peeling them, rinse off any shell fragments, place in another bowl, cover, and refrigerate until used.

This recipe for How to Steam Hard Boiled Eggs is from Simply Recipes.

  1. I made 7 hard cooked eggs on 1 April 2018, I could have fit another egg in but 7 was all I had. I do use a rice cooker with a steamer tray. I cooked them for 15 minutes, absolutely perfect eggs.
