I’ve tried too many versions of Instant Pot hard boiled eggs to count. But this is definitely the best in my opinion. By using low pressure the whites stay more tender, the yolks are still perfectly cooked without a dark ring (which indicates overcooking). Cooking on high pressure for 8 minutes works well also, but the low pressure is definitely better. And the best part? Pressure cooked eggs are unbelievable easy to peel! I always make a lot of deviled eggs for our family holidays and every time I am immensely annoyed peeling all the eggs and how tedious it is. Not anymore!
Perfect Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs
Eggs, how every many you want
1 cup cold water
Place a steamer basket in the instant pot and pour the water in as well. Place the eggs in the basket, making sure the eggs are not in the water.
Cook on low pressure for 12 minutes, then quickly release the pressure.
As soon as the pressure drops, open the lid and place the eggs in ice water to stop the cooking.
Remove after about 5 minutes when eggs are cool and peel or refrigerate and peel later.
