  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • ice


  • Place trivet at the bottom of the inner Instant Pot pan.
  • Place eggs on top of trivet, stacking evenly if necessary.
  • Add one cup of water to the pan. Close the lid and set Instant Pot for 5 minutes on Manual at HIGH pressure.
  • Allow pot to release the pressure naturally for 5 minutes, then very carefully quick release any remaining steam.
  • Scoop eggs out of pot and place in an ice bath for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the ice bath and peel or store in the refrigerator until ready to use.


  • I used my 6 quart Instant Pot®, and the trivet that comes with it.
  • Place a dish towel over the vent when you release the pressure/steam or you may burn yourself! Gently push on the vent and release the pressure in short bursts.
  • I cooked 12 eggs, but I “believe” that you can cook more using the same exact times above. I will give it a try and report back with the results.
