Perfect Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs Tips

How long should I cook my eggs in the Instant Pot?

Depending on how you like your eggs cooked, will change how long you cook them in the Instant Pot. And cooking times may vary depending on your Instant Pot. 

  • Medium Hard Boiled Eggs – Cook for 3 minutes
  • Hard Boiled Eggs – Cook 4-5 minutes
  • Well Done Hard Boiled Eggs – Cook 6-7 minutes

How do you make the eggs easier to peel?

Fresh eggs cook better and also peel easier. 

Why do you dip the eggs in cold water?

Dipping the eggs in cold water halts the cooking process. This is to make sure that the heat that’s left inside doesn’t overcook the egg.
