Consider Your Slow Cooker For Your Next Batch Of Hard-Boiled Eggs
By Jessica Fleming-Montoya
Rather than boiling a pot of water on your stovetop, you can make hard-boiled eggs in your slow cooker without constantly monitoring them until they're done.
Place your eggs in the bottom of your slow cooker in a single layer and pour in just enough water to cover the tops. Too much water may lead to floating and uneven cooking.
Cover the slow cooker with the lid and set it to cook on high. For hard-boiled yolks, 2 hours should be about right for medium-sized eggs or around 2 ½ hours for large eggs.
If you're working with jumbo eggs, you may want to cook them for closer to 3 hours. For yolky, soft-boiled eggs, try lowering the cooking time by around half an hour.
You can also cook your eggs on low heat for around 5 hours. When they're done, carefully remove the lid and use a slotted spoon to move the eggs into a bowl of ice water to cool.
Slow cookers are large enough to cook several eggs at once without over or undercooking them, so you don't have to boil multiple batches for party dishes like deviled eggs.
