Perfect Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

5 from 3 reviews

Learn how to make PERFECT hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot! It’s so easy and comes out delicious every time!


  • Eggs (up to 12 eggs in an 8 quart Insant Pot)
  • Water


  1. Pour one cup of water into the Instant Pot.
  2. Place eggs in a single layer on the trivet.
  3. Cook on “high” for 6 minutes.
  4. Turn the valve to “release” to release the pressure.
  5. Transfer the eggs (careful – they’re hot!) to a water bath. This is simply a big bowl of cold water with ice cubes. I used just one cube per egg and that was fine.
  6. Let the eggs sit for as long as you like, or at least until the ice melts (about 5 minutes or so).


  • Let the eggs cool completely for easy peeling.
  • You CAN peel the eggs in the water -whether in a cold water bath or under running water, which helps a little bit too.
  • These instructions are for an 8 quart Instant Pot, but you can also use a steamer basked in the
    6 quart Instant Pot.
