Hard Boiled Eggs In An Instant Pot®
Pressure Cookers have come back into vogue! They make life so much easier. I have only had mine about six months now and I am a big fan.
When I first got it I was freaked out to try just about everything. I have the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker and sometimes it seems like half computer and half crock pot.

One of the easiest recipes you can do is to make hard boiled eggs in an Instant Pot® . You can make as few or as many as you want- the cook time is the same regardless of the number.
For this “recipe” I just used large white eggs from the grocery store but in my normal life I eat pasture raised eggs or ones purchased from a friend who has back yard chickens. I promise it’s worth the extra money- the taste is so much better!
Make Hard Boiled Eggs In An Instant Pot®
1 Cup of Water
Open the Instant Pot® and make sure it is clean.
Put one cup of water in the inner pot (that’s the silver pot you can remove and wash)
Place a trivet or steamer basket inside
Place the eggs on the trivet or in the steamer basket
Close the lid and be sure the vent valve is closed
Press “Manual” on high pressure and set it for 5 minutes. If you like softer boiled eggs 4 minutes should do the trick.
As soon as the timer goes off release the valve on the top and let the steam come out. This is called a “quick release.”
My Instant Pot® came with this nice spoon type device so I used it to remove the eggs.
Once they had cooled down a bit I went ahead and peeled three of them. The shells SLID right off- they were the easiest eggs I had ever peeled. The rest are cooling completely and I will keep them in the fridge to eat over the next few days.
