Making the best, easy-peel Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs is practically effortless, with minimal fuss, and almost completely hands-free on your part! Your eggs are cooked to perfection EVERY single time, no watching the pot boil anymore!
Add 1 cup cold water (for a 6 quart Instant Pot) or 1 ½ cups cold water (for an 8 quart Instant Pot) to the inner pot of your pressure cooker.
Place the eggs inside the inner pot using a steam rack or an egg rack.
Close and seal the Instant Pot, then cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.
Allow the cook time to elapse and the Instant Pot to natural pressure release (NPR) for 5 minutes. Carefully vent the Instant Pot with a quick release and open to remove the eggs.
Transfer the hard boiled eggs to a prepared ice water bath and let them cool for 5 minutes. *Handle the eggs carefully as they will be hot.
Remove the eggs from the water bath and peel under cool water, or store with the peel on.
Bringing your eggs to room temperature helps prevent cracking while cooking. To do this quickly, place your eggs in a bowl of warm water.Peeled hard-boiled eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Leave the peel on your hard-boiled eggs to store them for up to a week.My best results come from peeling the hard-boiled eggs after cooling in the ice water bath. Peel them under some cool running water for quick and easy peeling.
