Steamers don't use oil to cook foods, so they are a healthy alternative to many other methods of cooking. They also don't heat up the kitchen as much as a stove. Eggs are among the many things you can cook in a steamer, and you can get perfect hard-boiled eggs by following a few simple steps.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Place between one and 12 eggs in the steamer basket.

  2. 2

    Add one cup of water to the steamer's reservoir. Cover the steamer.

  3. 3

    Steam for between 19 and 22 minutes.

  4. 4

    Put the steamed eggs into a bowl of ice cubes and water for a few minutes to loosen the shell and make for easy removal.
