Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs The easiest hard boiled eggs you'll ever make!!

You probably don’t know this about me, but, I LOVE small kitchen appliances and gadgets! They’re time-savers, but, they’re fun too! I ran across the ‘Instant Pot Duo‘ and had to have it! Early Christmas present to me! 😉 I just received it yesterday and immediately made steamed cauliflower for a low carb cauli-mash, so delicious! Today I made hard boiled eggs and it worked amazingly! Instant Pot hard boiled eggs are the easiest, walk-away-from-the-pot way to cook eggs!

If you have an Instant Pot, or an electric pressure cooker you have to try cooking your eggs this way! Of course, hard boiled eggs are basic like making a PB&J, but, sometimes I’d forget to watch for the water to boil and the eggs would end up cooking too long. So, this is a set it and forget it, egg cooking miracle!

Place 1 cup of water, trivet/rack and mason jar rings into inner pot. Add eggs to jar rings. (If you don’t have mason jar rings, set eggs in a steamer basket and use a folded strip of foil to weave between the eggs to keep them from bumping into each other and cracking as shown below.)

Place lid on cooker housing and turn to closed position, set steam release handle to the ‘sealing’ position. Set cooker to ‘manual’ high and set to cook for 8 minutes. Use ‘quick release’ method. See tips page for steam release methods. Place eggs in ice water to stop cooking until cool. Perfectly done!

    I did mine using high pressure for 3 minutes with 8 minutes natural release & they came out good, easy to peel, etc.

    I do wonder: what if you want to hard boil eggs, and not peel them right away, would they still peel nicely?

      Hi Jessica! I’ve cooked them at different pressure/steam release times and love how you can’t really screw up hard boiled eggs with the Instant Pot. From my experience, they peel like a dream right away, but, after I’ve refrigerated them, they don’t peel quite as easily, although much easier than if boiled in water on the stove. Thanks for stopping by!!

    OMG – don’t do all that stuff with the aluminum foil. I just cooked 18 farm-fresh eggs, like straight from my friend’s farm, in my pot – put in the rack, added the water, and piled in the eggs. They came out perfectly, and not one broke or cracked. No foil needed. They peeled easily and cleanly.

      Knitbunnie, I’m so glad you haven’t had any problems with cracked eggs in the Instant Pot! I’ve gotten lucky just putting them on the rack a couple of times but, am always guaranteed success separating them in some way. But, I’ve never cooked 18 eggs at one time like you have, there are probably so many in there they don’t have the space to get moved around at all and crack. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
