Instant Pot Boiled Eggs

Instant pot boiled eggs are a cinch to make!  I would even venture to say that investing in an instant pot is worth it, even if you just use it for boiled eggs.  And to cook chicken.  That’s pretty great too.  Okay fine and these instant pot baked potatoes.

I’ve tried a few different methods for making instant pot boiled eggs.  There’s the popular “5 – 5 – 5” method where you cook for 5 minutes, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then stick the eggs in an ice bath for 5 minutes – but honestly I think this way is better.  The yolks get cooked perfectly, the whites are nice and firm, and they are crazy easy to peel.

How To Make Instant Pot Boiled Eggs

  1. Add 1 cup of water to the instant pot and insert the trivet.
  2. Place your desired amount of eggs onto the trivet, as long as it’s in one single layer.
  3. Secure the lid and set the valve to the sealing position.
  4. Push the “manual” or “pressure cook” button (depending on your model) and set the time to 6 minutes by using the + and – buttons.
  5. Once the eggs have cooked and the timer has gone off, immediately release the pressure (quick release) on the instant pot.  If you’re new to using the instant pot please be careful when releasing the pressure.  Steam will shoot out of the top and you can get burned if you’re not careful.
  6. As soon as the red pin in the lid drops down, it is safe to remove the lid.
  7. Transfer the eggs to an ice bath (a bowl full of ice and water) for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the eggs from the ice bath and store in the fridge for up to a week.

Notes

I have an 8 qt. instant pot because I have a large family and like to make extra food for freezing.  The 6 qt. instant pot is usually sufficient for most people.
The instant pot boiled egg method works best when the eggs are in one single layer.  You can stack them on top of each other but they won't cook as evenly and the shell will stick to the egg more.  For this reason I suggest keeping the eggs in a single layer, and making multiple batches if you need to make a large amount of eggs.
