    That is a great idea, love using the crock pot for so many things. I bought an electric egg cooker, named Henrietta the hen, and it does a great job of making hard boiled eggs. If you want eggs faster, it is the way to go.

    This is a great idea!
    Does salt in the water make the eggs salty?
    Have you tried it without the salt, and if so, how did that change things?
