Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs come out perfect every time! You can cook beautiful and easy-to-peel eggs in the pressure cooker in only 20 minutes.


  • 14 eggs
  • Water


  1. Place the first layer of your stackable egg steamer into your Instant Pot and carefully add the eggs.
  2. If you are using the second layer, attach the second layer of the steamer to the first one, being sure to line up the bottom of the second layer with the top of the first layer. Carefully add the eggs to this second layer of the steamer.
  3. Pour 1 cup of COLD water into your Instant Pot.
  4. Seal the pressure cooker and set to cook for 5 minutes at high pressure.
  5. After the timer goes off, let the Instant Pot do a natural release for 5 minutes.
  6. While you are waiting, fill a large bowl with cold water and ice.
  7. Once the 5 minutes have elapsed, vent your instant pot to release the rest of the steam. Use a wooden spoon to open the vent so that you don’t accidentally get steam on your hand.
  8. Carefully remove the eggs and gently place them in the ice bath. I usually use tongs with rubber ends to remove them without burning my fingertips. The eggs will be HOT!
  9. Let the eggs sit in the ice water for 5 minutes.
  10. You can store them with the shells on. Let them cool completely, then place them in an airtight container in the fridge for up 7 days unpeeled, up to 3 days after they have been peeled.
  11. To peel the eggs, crack them open by gently rolling each egg on the counter with your hands to release the shell. Then gently remove the shell with your fingers. I usually do this under running water so that any small bits of shell get washed off immediately.
