I hate boiling eggs. It’s difficult, you have to watch them, the range heats up the house. If you want to know how to boil eggs in a crock pot or slow cooker, this post is for you. It’s simple, it is so easy and it WORKS!!! Place your eggs into the crockpot and fill it with just enough water to cover them.
Place on high for 2 hours 30 minutes
Once the time is up, quickly place them into a cold water bath to stop the cooking process. Remember if you don’t do this the boiled eggs will overcook.
Enjoy your perfect crockpot boiled eggs! Who knew that a slow cooker could boil an egg. If you ever wondered how to boil an egg in a crock pot, know you know! Let me know if it was successful!

SUCCESS!!! Thank you very much. This was my first slow cooker meal ever and it worked great 🙂
I have been doing this for several years now. I start with cold water and add a tablespoon of salt. It is possible to cook them too long. I use low heat. Others say cook them for 3-1/2 hours at low heat, but I have cooked them for 4 hours since I live at high altitude.

Worked great thank you
Wiow! I tried this, with a whole dozen eggs, knowing I was flushing them down the toilet. It is too hot to even boil water inside right now, Oh My Gosh! Was I so wrong! only 2 of the dozen broke, and after the ice water bath, they peeled easier than any I have made in a long time. I was expecting rubber bouncy balls………………got quite the opposite!
2 hours 30mins on high left me with rubbery and almost black yolks, I will try again but I think I will try 2 hours or 2 hours 30mins on medium next time
Tried 2 hours on my Morphy Richards Sear and Stew slow cooker and it worked PERFECTLY, glad I found your page and glad I found a way to tweak it to work for me 🙂

Did this with my mini (2qt) slow cooker and it worked perfectly! I only cooked 3 eggs, and I did 2 hours instead of two and a half. They came out great!
Did this today with 5 jumbo eggs in my 2 1/2 quart small crock pot.
Works great! I did use high heat and I followed your recipe. Perfect. Thank you.
I’ve done this 4 times now..I give..they don’t get done..there just poached….
That’s what happened to me. Boo.
This is great advice, thank you so much!
I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile. Thanks for the recipe!!! I really appreciate it.
I did 18 eggs on high for 2 1/2 hours…PERFECT!! Will definitely do this again and again. Thx for the tip!
If you have the Crock Pot for Two, cooking times definitely vary. I put a dozen eggs on high for two hours. Covered them completely with water and used liberal salt. When finished, I dunked the eggs in an ice bath for ten minutes and peeled perfect boiled eggs.
It works great. No fuss no mess.
It is my first time in 57 years I boil eggs this way. Thank you. Your information is small and precisely.

Don’t use organic eggs! Totally sucks for peeling
Organic eggs are fine for this, i think your eggs may have been too fresh, it isnt recommended to use fresh eggs for boiling as the membrane is still too tightly stuck to the shell, this loosens with age, but obviously dont use very old eggs either!
I didn’t like cooking eggs in the slow cooker. Cooking on higher heat – spices and flavors are absorbed better. Maybe the breakfast casserole might be better
Irene Byers says
Did the eggs the way it said to do . They were hard to peel and rubbery. Maybe I should have only booked them for 2 hours instead.
Cindi Mall says
I can’t believe how horrible they came out I did exactly what your recipe said a dozen eggs water just covering the eggs and cooked them for 2 and a half hours
Sure it works, so does the original method in a regular pot 😛
I just can’t take it seriously, that people still think adding salt or vinegar to the water makes a difference… That is not how culinary science works!!!
Currently have no stove/oven, waiting for delivery of new appliance. The crockpot has been my best friend for a week now (and will be until next week) so will give this method for boiled eggs a try. Had no idea on length of time so once my turkey soup is done, boiling eggs are next up in the crockpot!
