Boiled Eggs

  • 1 cup water
  • 6 eggs



  • Add water to instant pot. Place metal trivet in pot, followed by silicone egg mold (if using).
  • Add eggs directly on top of trivet or place onto mold. (I cook 5 eggs at a time with the mold that I have, but you can hard-boil up to 12 at a time.)
  • Cook on manual setting* at high pressure for 3-7 minutes. (I’ve found that 6 minutes is perfect for hard boiled eggs!)
  • soft boiled: 3 minutes
  • medium: 4-5 minutes
  • hard boiled: 6-7 minutes (fully set)
  • When cooking finishes, quick release the steam before carefully removing lid from instant pot.
  • Using tongs, remove eggs from mold/trivet and transfer into a bowl of ice water to cool for about 1 minute.
  • Remove eggs from ice bath and dry on clean towels or paper towels. For easiest peeling, peel immediately! Or store in shell if preferred.


*On my Instant Pot Duo pressure cooker, the manual setting is the “BEANS/CHILI” button. Reference your machine’s user manual if needed.
