  • Eggs - one egg to two dozen your preference
  • 1 cup of water


  • Plug in your Instant Pot and place the trivet in the bottom of the pot.
  • Pour in one cup of water and add desired number of eggs onto the trivet.  It is perfectly ok to stack the eggs if you run out of surface room on your trivet.
  • Secure the lid to the base and making sure to lock the lid in place.  Close the pressure relief valve.  Press the pressure cook button and adjust the timer to 5 minutes for hard boiled and 4 minutes for soft boiled eggs.
  • It will take a few minutes for the Instant Pot to build pressure, but after the five minutes of cooking time has elapsed, quickly move the pressure valve to release, allowing the steam to exit.
  • Once the pressure has released to normal, carefully remove the lid and place the eggs into ice water to stop the cooking process.
  • After a 3-5 minutes in the ice water, crack the eggs and remove the shell allowing the egg to slide out.
  • Enjoy!
