Perfectly Perfect Egg !

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

I have perfected the art of making hard boiled eggs! I love my instant pot! I have made quite a few really awesome meals in my pressure cooker. Scroll pinterest and you are guaranteed to see elaborate, mouthwatering, easy-peasy pressure cooker meals! My pressure cooker has produced a few of these dishes, but it gets the most use making our weekly batch of hard boiled eggs!

I promise you, the eggs you make in the instant pot will literally pop out of their shell. I have tried all the methods…stovetop, using vinegar, blah blah blah. I am telling you, if you use this method, you can have a dozen hard boiled eggs out of their shell in 2 minutes or less. Not only are the easy to peel, but they come out perfectly cooked every single time! I’ve never had a bad batch!

A few notes about the eggs

Every once and a while you will open the instant pot after the eggs have cooked, and see one of the eggs cracked and the whites popping out! The eggs look a little unshapely…but still taste and are cooked perfectly!

You can play with the time by about 1 or 2 minutes. If you like your yoke a little less done, then cook a little less!

Which Instant Pot to use?

I was given the Power Pressure Cooker XL 6 quart cooker pressure cooker as a gift!! My better half’s mom got it at Costco at the time, but it is still available on amazon! I love this thing! So easy to use and clean! This really is a great gift to give. The magical power it has to cook boiled eggs perfectly, is reason enough to buy!
