Once you make hard-boiled eggs in your Instant Pot you’ll never want to make them any other way! They cook up quickly and evenly and peel so easily. Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs are a great way to boil lots of eggs in a hurry. Make them for Easter egg hunts, deviled egg recipes, or for healthy snacks throughout the week.
We love to nosh on Instant Pot hard boiled eggs as snacks or to pack for Hubs’ lunch. If you’re doing a low carb diet like keto, pressure cooker hard boiled eggs are an easy way to get some fat and protein in when you need it.
Tip: Older eggs peel much easier than fresh ones. Of course, you never want to use spoiled eggs, but if given the choice you want to choose the carton in your fridge that’s been there since last week instead of the carton you just bought at the store. This makes peeling eggs a snap!
Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs
- 12 eggs
- 1 cup of water
Place the eggs in the Instant Pot using stackable egg racks. Note that you can make pressure cooker hard-boiled eggs without the rack, but eggs will often crack during cooking if you don’t. The rack also allows you to cook more eggs at a time. It’s $9 well-spent if you boil eggs with any frequency.
Add 1 cup of water
Seal the Instant Pot lid and cook on manual for 6 minutes
Release the pressure manually when time is up and remove the Instant Pot lid. The eggs will be hot so use tongs to place them into an ice bath.
Store in the refrigerator to snack on or peel them all at once under a trickle of water from the sink if you’re using them in a deviled egg recipe.
Look how pretty these are! They peeled so easily and none were broken during cooking. The yolks were perfection; not too dry and not too soft.

Older eggs peel more easily than fresher ones. When hard-boiling eggs, use the oldest carton in your fridge and save the freshest ones for other recipes.
