  • 1 cup water
  • Eggs


  • Add 1 cup water to a 6-quart Instant Pot; place trivet in Instant Pot. Carefully stack desired number of eggs on trivet.
  • Place top on Instant Pot; twist to seal and lock. Turn Steam Release Valve to “sealing.” Set Instant Pot to cook at Low Pressure.
  • Cook 7 minutes for hard-boiled eggs; cook 5 minutes for soft-boiled eggs; cook 2 minutes for jammy eggs.
  • After cooking is complete, manually release the pressure by turning the Steam Release Valve to “venting.”
  • Carefully open Instant Pot lid. Remove eggs; place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Peel and enjoy!


  • Hard or soft-cooked eggs keep well in the shell, so make a big batch and store them in the refrigerator for lunches and breakfasts all week long.
  • Let eggs come to room temperature before pressure cooking to ensure proper cooking.
  • Be careful when adding eggs to Instant Pot to avoid cracking them.
