Ingredients

  • 1 Cup water
  • 1-6 eggs, large or jumbo

Directions

Pour the water into the Instant Pot. Place a steamer basket or the trivet in the pot.

Carefully arrange eggs in the steamer basket. Secure the lid on the pot. Close the pressure-release valve.

For soft-cooked eggs, select manual and cook at low pressure for 3 minutes. When cooking time is complete, use a natural release to depressurize. (For medium-cooked eggs, cook for 4 minutes; for hardcooked eggs, cook for 5 minutes.)

Remove the lid from the pot and gently place eggs in a bowl of cool water for 1 minute to serve warm.
