  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup hot water


  • Place the trivet inside the Instant Pot and put the eggs on top of the trivet, being careful not to crack them.
  • Add 1 cup hot water (no need to boil just hot tap water)
  • Cook on high for 8 minutes. (Note it takes several minutes to come up to pressure before the timer starts, this is normal!)
  • Release pressure immediately with a quick release.
  • Immediately put the eggs into a large bowl filled with ice water. Add additional ice if needed if the eggs melt all the ice. Soak for 15 minutes.
  • Tap the egg on the countertop and peel off the shell. Enjoy!



You may need to adjust your timing less or more depending on your particular model of Instant Pot, the size of eggs (smaller=less time), and elevation (higher elevation=more time.)
We use a Instant Pot Duo, large eggs and are at 3,500 elevation.
