  • 1-12 large eggs room temperature (or as many is you can fit in one layer)
  • 1 cup water
  • bowl of ice water


  1. Fill your Instant Pot with 1 cup of cold water (or whatever the recommended minimum amount for your electric pressure cooker is).
  2. Place the trivet or a steamer basket inside and arrange the eggs on top of it.
  3. Close the lid and move the pressure valve to sealing. Press the Manual button, then press the Pressure button to select 'Low Pressure' cooking mode. Using the - or + button, adjust to 11 minutes (or adjust timing as needed according to Notes above).
  4. As soon as the cooking time is up, move the valve to release to quick release (QR) the pressure.
  5. Using tongs move the eggs to a prepared bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and cool the eggs. This way you will avoid overcooked eggs.
  6. For easiest peeling, crack the shell by tapping the hard boiled egg on the counter. Then hold the egg under cool running water to remove the shell. This way it will easily come off in 2-3 big pieces.
