Instant pot hard "boiled" eggs

Prep Time 1 minute
Cook Time 12 minutes
Cooling time 6 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes


  • Eggs I've done up to a dozen, and it's worked great, though sometimes a few will crack.
  • 1 cup water


  1. Place water into the Instant Pot's stainless steel liner. Put in the rack.

  2. Put eggs gently onto the rack. If there's room, try not to let them touch one another. These seems to help prevent cracking.

  3. Seal up the pot, and set on manual for 6 minutes. 

  4. Once the timer goes, allow it to come down from pressure for six minutes, then release the lever and quick release the rest of the pressure. 

  5. Open the Pot carefully and transfer the eggs to a bowl of cold water. Allow to rest in cold water for at least six minutes, then peel and eat. Or store in the fridge.
