Cooking hard-boiled eggs in an Instant Pot is a great way to make perfect, easy-to-peel eggs every time. Not only does it require minimal effort and no babysitting of boiling water, but the cooking time is significantly reduced from traditional stovetop methods. In less than 30 minutes, you can have 12 perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs that are ready for salads or snacks!

  • Total Time: 27 minutes


  • 1 cup water
  • Large Eggs, up to 12
  • water and ice


  1. Pour 1 cup of water into the Instant Pot.
  2. Add trivet insert to the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  3. Place eggs on the trivet in one layer.
  4. Close the lid of the Instant Pot and place the pressure valve in the sealed position.
  5. Set the Instant Pot to manual pressure, high pressure for 5 minutes.
  6. Once finished, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release for 5 minutes. Then quick release if it’s not finished releasing the pressure.
  7. Immediately pour water into the Instant Pot and carefully add some ice. Allow the eggs to cool in the ice bath for 5 minutes.
  8. Peel immediately for best results.
  9. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.


  • I can fit 12 eggs in my 6-quart Instant Pot. 
  • Instead of adding an ice bath to the Instant Pot, prepare an ice bath in a separate bowl. And once the eggs are finished cooling, gently transfer them to the ice bath with tongs.
