  • eggs
  • 1 cup water approximately
  • Bowl of ice water (can be put together a couple minutes before eggs are done cooking)


  • Add water to rice pot and set into cooker.
  • Place eggs in steamer tray and set in rice pot. Close cooker lid.
  • Start the cooker and set the timer. Hard cooked eggs = 20 minutes. Soft cooked eggs with runny yolk = 13-15 minutes (NOTE: These times are based on my rice cooker. Your times may vary a little, give or take, depending on your rice cooker. However, these times are a good reference point and are a good place to start when trying this out.)
  • Once timer rings, transfer eggs immediately to a bowl filled with ice water to stop the cooking process. Let sit for about 1-2 minutes.
  • Start cracking and enjoy!
