Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs are so incredibly easy to peel and come out perfect every time. I’ve detailed 3 different ways to cook eggs in the Instant Pot: hard boiled, soft boiled and what I call jammy eggs with a still partly runny yolk. Cook as few eggs as you want or as many as a dozen.


  • 112 eggs
  • 1 cup of water
  • Ice (for ice bath)


  1. Pour the water into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Then place the metal trivet into the bottom of the pot.
  2. Evenly space the eggs on the metal trivet.
  3. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and select high pressure / manual for the desired time, 2-7 minutes (*2 minutes for jammy slightly runny yolks, *3-4 minutes for soft boiled yolks and *6-7 minutes for hard boiled yolks).
  4. Once the timer goes off quick release the pressure.
  5. While the steam releases, prepare your ice bath in a large boil with ice and cold water.
  6. Using tongs, transfer the eggs to the ice bath for 1 minute.
  7. Then remove the eggs one at a time and crack the shells on the counter and peel under cold running water.
  8. Leave the eggs whole or cut them in half to enjoy immediately with your favorite salt or store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.


*2 minutes: Jammy – Set whites and half runny yolks, half soft set yolks
*3-4 minutes: Soft – Firmer whites and soft boiled yolks
*6 -7 minutes: Hard – Firm whites and fully set hard boiled yolks
