Instant Pot Boiled Eggs
Easy peel instant pot hard boiled eggs or soft boiled eggs.
or pressure cooker
silicone egg mold
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!)
: 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.
