Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs
- Eggs (as many as you want!)
- 1 cup water
- Instant Pot
- Pour 1 cup of water into the instant pot.
- Place the eggs on the metal trivet that comes with your Instant Pot. You can also use a steamer basket if you have one!
- Lock lid, close valve, and set Instant Pot to Manual.
- Decrease time to 6 minutes and let Instant Pot start and build pressure.
- When Instant Pot is done, release pressure carefully with the steam valve (do a quick release)
- Carefully place eggs into a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes to stop the cooking process quickly.
- Peel eggs (so easily!!!) and enjoy!
I personally like to use a steamer basket inside my instant pot, I like how it hugs my eggs, lol! I have this steamer basket and love it!!! Place as many eggs inside your Instant Pot as you would like, I typically do a dozen at a time. And then lock the lid in place. Make sure the steam valve is set to closed. Then, press the “Manual” button and adjust the time (you’ll need to decrease it!) to 6. What a few seconds and the Instant Pot will start up. It will take a few minutes to build pressure and then in no time at all it will start to hard boil your eggs!Once the Instant Pot is finished cooking. Carefully place your hot eggs into a bowl of ice cold water. This helps stop the cooking process. I typically do this for 5 minutes.
Then peel your eggs and enjoy! And enjoy just how darn easy peeling your eggs becomes!!!!!
Can I just say for the longest time I was buying hard boiled eggs (pre-peeled) at Trader Joe’s because I soooo disliked peeling hard boiled eggs, the shells always cut me, they stuck to the eggs constantly, and I was always picking tons of micro bits of shell off the eggs, ugh! Well, thanks to the Instant Pot, I’ve never had an easier time! I literally just tap the egg to break the shell and then it cracks and I squeeze the egg out…it’s amazing!!! And I know, I know, it totally sounds like an informercial…but it’s the truth! Just wanted you to know reason number 476 that I love my Instant Pot! 🙂
Seriously!!! Look at this egg!
I really hope this step by step helps take the fear out of your Instant Pot, it really is such an amazing and easy appliance to use once you get over the fear! 😉 Give this Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs recipe a try, you will love how easy it really is!
