  • Pressure Cooker


  • 6 Eggs (or how ever many you would like)
  • 1 cup water


  • Place water inside of your pressure cooker pot.
  • Place trivet at the bottom of the Instant Pot. (Skip this step if you are using a steamer basket)
  • Place eggs on trivet or place eggs in a steamer basket and place inside the pot.
  • Place lid on the pressure cooker and make sure the value is turned to sealing.
  • Turn your pressure cooker on and to the manual pressure cook function. Set pot to high pressure for 5 minutes.
  • When the pressure cooker is done cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 5 minutes. Release any remaining pressure and carefully open the lid.
  • Place eggs in an ice bath for 5 minutes. Peel and enjoy!


Note that the cooking time does not include the time it takes for the pressure cooker to come to pressure.
