Instant Pot Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs cook in just minutes. They come out perfect every time and are very easy to peel.
I’m so happy with my new Instant Pot pressure cooker, I am using it several times a week and even for hard-boiled eggs. I chose the LUX60 V3 6 Qt 6 model because of the newer features like eggs and cake. While I haven’t yet made a cake, I am in love with the egg feature.
I did a little test the first time I made Instant Pot Perfect Hard Boiled eggs. I used extra large eggs and let the cooker set the time – which is an automatic 5 minutes for hard-boiled eggs. As you can see from the picture below, they came out a little undercooked – or at least undercooked for me.
So the next time I set the egg mode at 6 minutes. When the cooker indicated they were done, I released the steam and put them in an ice bath to stop them from cooking. I waited about 5 minutes and then peeled them. I was amazed at how easily the shells just peeled right off.
Now I have the perfect egg cooker so why not make the best-deviled eggs?
