As is always the case with soft-boiling eggs, you want your eggs to be a few days old to help make them easier to peel. However, using your pressure cooker to get your soft-boiled eggs, will help them be easier to peel than if you simply boiled them in water, removing one of the most-frustrating elements of enjoying this high-protein snack.

This makes the perfect soft boiled eggs. The whites are firm and yolks are creamy. Perfect, fail-proof recipe!
Santana Williams says:
These turned out great! I seasoned them with seaweed gomasio and they were super yummy.
Monica Allen says:
I made smashed avocado toast with these soft boiled eggs, yum! My new Multipot is amazing, it literally cooks these eggs to perfection. I just knew they were going to be hard boiled, but nope they had the perfect creamy yolk.
Sheila Long says:
I made these soft boiled eggs and "soldiers" toast for breakfast and it was so perfect. Not over or under cooked, just right.
Sarah Gray says:
These were easy to peel and perfectly cooked! I make them all the time now, they're especially good on ramen.
Jeff Powell says:
This was the first thing I did with my new MM and it did it wonderfully. I've wasted many a egg doing it the traditional way, not to mention the consistency wasn't near as perfect as these turned out to be. Overall cook time, start to finish, approx ~15 minutes.
Michael Cardaci says:
