Instant Pot Perfect Boiled Eggs

Whether you like them soft-boiled or hard, the best and fastest way to achieve healthy, nutritious, perfectly boiled eggs is in your pressure cooker! Got 3-5 minutes? These Instant Pot Perfect Boiled Eggs are so easy - from the cooking to the peeling!

Yields 6     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

For Hard-Boiled Eggs:

  1. Add the water to your pressure cooker. Place the eggs in a steamer basket or an egg rack.
  2. Close the lid and make sure it's set to 'sealing'. Set a manual timer for 5 (medium-sized eggs) or 6 (large and extra large sized eggs) minutes at high pressure. (It will take a total of 10-12 minutes between the steam build up time and actual cooking time.)
  3. When the timer beeps, allow the cooker to natural release for 2-3 minutes, then vent the lid for a quick pressure release, being sure to use a wooden spoon and not your hand to do so. Steam burns hurt! 
  4. Place the hot eggs under cold running water to stop the cooking process. Peel immediately and use as desired, or refrigerate unpeeled for up to 4 days. 

For Soft-Boiled Eggs:

  1. Add the water to your pressure cooker. Place the eggs in a steamer basket or and egg rack.
  2. Close the lid and make sure it's set to 'sealing'. Set a manual timer for 2 (for dipping, a la Eggs & Soldiers) or 3 minutes (peelable - perfect for Ramen) at high pressure. (It will take a total of 7-8 minutes between the steam build up time and actual cooking time.)
  3. When the timer beeps, vent the lid for a quick pressure release, being sure to use a wooden spoon and not your hand to do so. Steam burns hurt!  
  4. Place the hot eggs under cold running water to stop the cooking process. Peel immediately and use as desired. You can refrigerate these for up to 2 days, but they're so easy to make, you can have fresh ones every day!
