  • 1 Cup water
  • 12-24 eggs up to 2/3 full in Instant Pot


  1. Place one cup of water into the IP; add the trivet to the pot. Place the eggs onto the trivet (as many as you’d like...just don’t fill the IP more than 2/3 full.)
  2. Lock the IP lid into place, then use the Manual button to choose High Pressure for 6 minutes, bringing the IP to full pressure.
  3. When the timer sounds, perform a Quick Release to remove all the pressure from the pot.
  4. Immediately pour the contents of the IP into a large bowl of ice water for 2-3 minutes.
  5. After 2-3 minutes, letting the eggs chill a bit, crack the shells of the eggs on the counter, then re-submerge each one beneath the cold water in the bowl, gently and easily removing all the shells from each egg.

Recipe Notes

Hard-boiled eggs will keep in a bowl in the fridge (I put paper towels between each layer) for up to 5 days.
