Perfect Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe + Instant Pot Soft Boiled Eggs Recipe

Want to know how to make perfect instant pot hard boiled eggs? We go through eggs very quickly in our house. Egg salad and hard boiled eggs are always in demand. As soon as I make them, they disappear. I also use them for Pennsylvania Dutch red beet eggs. (They taste better than they sound! So yummy!) Making hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot takes 15 minutes and almost no effort at all!

 

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • eggs (however many you want!)
  • Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker
  • Bowl of water
  • Ice cubes (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pour 1 cup water into the instant pot and place the rack (or basket if you have it) into the instant pot.
  2. Place eggs on the rack (or in the steamer basket).
  3. Set the Instant Pot manually to 5 min at high pressure and close the steam valve.
  4. Let the pressure release naturally for about 5 min and then do a quick release.
  5. Pour the eggs into ice cold water (ice cubes are best but not required. These ones I took a photo of were not put into water with ice, just cold water).

Notes
Putting them right into cold water is the key to easily-peelable and perfectly colored eggs! If you don't get to it right away and let the eggs cool naturally they are still easy to peel, but they may be darker around the edges.

 

Instant Pot Soft Boiled Eggs Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • eggs (however many you want!)
  • Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker
  • Bowl of water
  • Ice cubes (optional)

Directions:

  1. Pour 1 cup water into the instant pot and place the rack (or basket if you have it) into the instant pot.
  2. Place eggs on the rack (or in the steamer basket).
  3. Set the Instant Pot manually to 3 min at high pressure and close the steam valve. The time is really the only difference between hard and soft boiled eggs in the Instant Pot.
  4. Let the pressure release naturally for about 5 min and then do a quick release. *Note: You can let the steam naturally release for hard-boiled eggs, but your soft boiled eggs will turn into hard-boiled eggs if you let them linger.
  5. Pour the eggs into ice cold water (ice cubes are best but not required. These ones I took a photo of were not put into water with ice, just cold water).

Note: Putting them right into cold water is the key to easily-peelable and perfectly colored eggs! If you don’t get to it right away and let the eggs cool naturally they are still easy to peel, but they may be darker around the edges.
