One of the most common pressure cooker recipes around is for Hard Boiled Eggs.  I’ll be honest with you, cooking hard boiled eggs just doesn’t seem like it could get any easier than cooking them on the stove.  Why is everyone going crazy for pressure cooker hard boiled eggs?  

Eggs (68 of 86)

I needed to find out for myself.  With so many options for cook times, I thought I’d start out with the most common one.  5-5-5.  What the heck does that mean?  Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes, natural release for 5 minutes and then cool in an ice bath for 5 minutes.  Seems easy enough!

I decided to give it a go.  And, let me tell you….I was pleasantly surprised!  The time to cook the eggs didn’t seem much different than on the stove,  But, and this is a HUGE BUT!  The eggs peeled like I’ve never seen before!  OMG!  The shell literally just slid right off.  This, in itself is why you should be pressure cooking your hard boiled eggs.  Game changer!!

  1. This recipe is absolutely incredible! The eggs peeled perfectly and I’ve never had a hard boiled egg that wasn’t overcooked!! This is only the 2nd thing I’ve made in my Ninja Foodi since I just bought it, but so far I am amazed!

  2. 5 stars
    Tried this with a dozen eggs this afternoon. Just as the recipient said. The eggs came out perfectly and pealed easily. Tasted great 👍

  3. Thank you for posting this. I followed the Ninja directions and was disappointed in how they were on the under-cooked side. Ninja says to pressure for 4 minutes and do quick release. Next time I’ll do this method. Thanks.

    1. Hi Linda. Hard-boiled eggs can be a little tricky. We have found that the 5-5-5 method in our recipe works great almost every time. 🙂 4 minutes would give you a bit of a runnier yolk. Let us know if you try our method and how they turn out.

    Oh my goodness! I’ve never peeled a dozen eggs so effortlessly in my life and in my 75 years, I’ve peeled a bunch! Only one egg was ornery (there always has to be one in the bunch, right?) The taste is amazing, no rubbery texture and no green edges.
    We are new to the Ninja Foodi experience, but we’re taking baby steps, and haven’t had a bad experience yet.
    Thank you so much. I have already bookmarked your website.
    Happy Traveling!

    I ain’t no cook but I am learning. This worked out great(next time I will heat the water for less prep time). The eggs were perfect and a lot easier to peel. Just as it said.
    Thanks very much
