How to cook eggs in rice cooker!
Did you know that you can hard boil your eggs in a rice cooker? I know it may sound weird but if you already have a rice cooker available, then this may be something that you could try.
Having perfectly hard boiled eggs isn’t as difficult as you think. It doesn’t even involve boiling a ton of water and then waiting 30 minutes for it to heat up just to take a guess on whether or not your eggs are ready to eat.
A great second option is to use what you already have, such as an electric rice cooker.
Why a rice cooker?
Rice cookers are great for hard boiling eggs because it’s a simple appliance. It holds water and it heats up.
In the case of making rice, it holds rice and water, and then heats up.
There are a lot of different hacks for rice cookers. You can make cakes, pasta, and many other foods.
In this case, we’ll stick to eggs!
It’s important for me to note that in this case, we’re talking specifically about electric rice cookers. We’re NOT talking about those that go on a stovetop.
Steps to hard boiling eggs in an electric rice cooker
- Carefully pour water into the rice cooker
- Place the lid on the rice cooker and turn it on
- Choose the steam function
- Place your eggs inside for 9-11 minutes
- Remove your hard boiled eggs after the time is done and put them in a bowl full of ice cold water, and then put extra ice on tope
Make sure that the lid of your rice cooker is secure. This is especially important because your eggs will be steamed so having a loose lid will be dangerous.
Using your rice cooker to cook eggs may not be ideal, but it could be a great option if you already own a rice cooker.
