Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs only take a few minutes to make in the Instant Pot and are super easy to peel. 



  • Instant Pot
  • 8 to 12 uncooked eggs (we used 8 ggs)
  • 1 cup water


  1. Place inner pot into the Instant Pot. Next, put metal rack or steamer basket into the pot.  
  2. Put 8 to 12 eggs into the pot with one cup of water.
  3. Close and lock lid. Turn knob to sealing position. 
  4. Press manual button and set for 5 minutes.
  5. When timer goes off quick release by turning knob to venting.  
  6. After valve goes down open instant pot and carefully remove eggs.
  7. Put eggs into a bowl filled with ice water until they cool down. 
  8. Peel eggs and enjoy!  


I have an IP LUX 80 (8 quarts) please adjust recipe time accordingly. 

If you like your eggs a little firmer cook for 7 minutes then do a quick release.
