I usually make a dozen at a time since we tend to go through them throughout the week. All you need is your eggs, a pressure cooker (I use my Instant Pot) fitted with a steamer basket, and a cup of water. That’s it!

I arrange my eggs in a single layer on my steamer basket, pour in the water, secure the lid and set the timer. I’ve found that my whole family likes the eggs when cooked for 13 minutes on low pressure.

  1. Yes! This is THE best way to make hard boiled eggs! Easy to peel every time!!!

  2. I, also, own an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, but I have an even easier way to make very easy to peel hard boiled eggs. I leave my dozen eggs in the refrigerator until I’m ready to use them. I fill my pasta cooker stock pot with water to just the bottom of the pasta insert and then remove the insert. I bring this water to a boil over the highest heat my range top will provide. THEN I put the cold eggs into the insert and place the insert into the pot and cover and allow to continue steaming over high heat for 13 minutes. I turn off the heat, bring the pot to my sink, remove the basket to dump the hot water, replace the basket and leave the pot, basket and all, under cold running water until all the eggs have cooled. These eggs will have a golden interior, no sulphur ring around the yolk, and the jackets will slip off very slickly. I put them back into the egg container (labeled hard boiled eggs) and remove and shell them whenever I want a hard boiled egg. I usually run them under hot tap water before cracking and deshelling, and the shells peel off just as slick.

    • Hi Clara,
      Thanks for sharing how you make boiled eggs! I enjoy making hard boiled eggs on my stovetop sometimes too!
      I’ve really enjoyed making them with my Instant Pot and find I get excellent results with less time since I don’t have to wait on water to boil, etc.
      Since you have an Instant Pot, I can’t wait to hear what you think if you try them this way.
      Thanks! xo

  3. I will never cook them any other way. I always cook them at high pressure for 7 minutes. I have plunged them in ice water when I needed them immediately, but I usually just stick them in the refrigerator. Love my Instant Pot!

  4. What Instant Pot product would you recommend?

  5. I you don’t have an instapot but another pressure cooker – and I don’t have a steamer insert. What do you recommend?
