Peckish, I actually had one of those at one time, it got broken. How many eggs have you been able to do with your steamer.

Do you do stove top or in an electric pressure cooker.
I do them on the stove, traditional method (add eggs to cold water and put on stove). My daughter uses a method for all boiled eggs - soft or hard - where she brings the water to a boil first, then puts eggs in. I did use it for soft boiled once, and they turned out perfectly - but as I have the other method memorized, it's just my go to.

I think a dozen was the most I've ever done, I was making deviled eggs for a dinner party and figured 24 (halves) was enough. But there's plenty of room for more in the IP.

My FINAL test was today. I got my farm eggs this morning and after lunch I cooked some.

I used 1 1/2 cups water in my 8qt IP along with a splash of white vinegar. set my metal basket on canning rings and then started with the eggs. I had a pushpin and made a tiny hole in the big end of each egg. I used 12 each of big (mixed colors) and brown poulet sized eggs. Then I set the IP for 9 minutes on High, natural release for 5 minutes and quick released. All went into a dish of ice water but quickly started cracking each one by rolling on the counter and then back in the water. ALL peeled very well but one did have a flaw and I cut that one open and the yolks are perfectly dry enough for deviled eggs.
I have my notes all set to use again when I need eggs for a church meal.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their versions of cooking perfect boiled eggs. You all are a treasure to keep.
