Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs are my new BFF (best foodie find)! Yeap, this method of making hard boiled eggs is seriously foolproof. You get perfectly cooked eggs each and every time. With virtually no effort, and no actual boiling required.

When Instant Pot eggs first became a thing, I admit I was a little skeptical. I mean, how hard is it to hard boil an egg? But because I love any excuse to use my magical Instant Pot, I decided to get on the 5-5-5 eggs bandwagon and cook up some eggs, pressure cooker style.

Peeps, let me just say that I am officially a huuuuuuge fan! This is the single best way to “boil” eggs. Not only do the eggs cook much faster than the traditional stovetop method, but they are also super easy to peel. #nofussnomuss

So, have I convinced you to give Instant Pot Eggs a try? Then go ahead and grab a dozen eggs and let me show you…..

How To Make Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs Using the 5-5-5 Method

  1. Add water and vinegar to the bottom of the Instant Pot insert. Place an egg steamer rack (or the trivet that came with your Instant Pot) in the bottom of the insert and gently set eggs on top.
  2. Put lid on and turn the valve to the sealing position. Set to manual high pressure for 5 minutes. When done, allow for a 5 minute natural pressure release, then perform a quick pressure release.
  3. Open the lid and remove the eggs using tongs or mitts. Place eggs in a bowl filled with ice and water for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from the ice water bath, pat dry and store them in the fridge or peel and eat.

  1. The communication was transparent, and the support team was responsive throughout the process. If you’re seeking reliable assistance with your assignments, look no further. This service not only met but exceeded my academic needs. Highly recommend for students looking for excellence! Exceptional do my assignment EssayShark ! I was initially skeptical, but the team proved me wrong with their top-notch quality and punctuality. The assigned writer demonstrated a profound understanding of the topic, delivering a meticulously researched and well-structured assignment that surpassed my expectations. What sets this service apart is the personalized approach; they carefully catered to my requirements.

  2. 5 stars
    What I appreciated the most about studyfy https://www.tiktok.com/@studyfycom was the direct communication with the writer. It allowed me to explain my expectations clearly and provide additional resources. The writer was open to my suggestions and incorporated my feedback during the drafting process. The essay I received was well-written, thoughtfully argued, and it reflected a good understanding of the sociological theories I needed to discuss.

  3. These Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs sound like a game-changer! I’ve always been skeptical about using the Instant Pot for something as simple as boiling eggs, but your experience has me intrigued. The 5-5-5 method sounds super convenient and the fact that they’re easy to peel is a huge bonus. I’ll definitely give this a try and see if it lives up to the hype. I also have some writing inspiration https://writinguniverse.com/essay-types/classification-essays/ to share with you, and free tools. Thanks for sharing your success with this method!

  4. First batch I did for 5 minutes as the instructions said to do, but then forgot to force vent after 5 minutes, it went to 22 minutes due to distraction. When I tried to peel the eggs, they were very soft boiled. I fed the two I tried to peel to my dogs as they were unsuitable for egg salad. Put them back in for another 5 minutes. They came out perfectly. Second batch I did a second time for another 5 minutes, natural rest for 5 minutes. They were still soupy. Putting them in for a THIRD go-round, another 5 minutes. Still soft boiled. I’m stepping out on my own, your instructions are way off. I think this has potential, but at this point, I could have had 2 dozens eggs boiled and peeled by now if I’d done them traditionally.
