The Anova Precision Cooker can help you achieve perfect hard-boiled eggs with creamy yolks and tender whites every time. You can even cook as many eggs as you’d like at once without adjusting the settings. Notes: This recipe works best when there’s some airflow underneath the eggs. The photos in this recipe show a perforated pan, which is now available to order through Anova. If you don't have one, placing a wire rack over a sheet pan works as a substitute. At 100% steam, eggs will get a creamy center in 15 minutes. For a more traditional hard-cooked yolk, cook the eggs for 17 minutes. Start the timer immediately after placing the eggs in the oven.
