How to Boil Eggs in an Instant Pot

Cooking and peeling boiled eggs perfectly every time isn't as easy as it seems. Thankfully, the Instant Pot makes the oftentimes intimidating task a breeze. Following these simple instructions will give you flawless hard-boiled and soft-boiled eggs in a matter of minutes. Take this basic recipe and turn it into devilishly delicious deviled eggs or just basic Instant Pot deviled eggs.

50 Ways to Cook an Egg


  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 Cup water


Place your eggs on the steaming rack in the Instant Pot with 1 cup of water in the bottom.

Close and lock the lid and make sure the steam release valve is set to “Sealed.”

Press the “Egg” button on the Instant Pot. If your Instant Pot does not have this setting, set to High Pressure. Set the timer for 5 minutes

For soft-boiled eggs, change the cook time to 3 minutes — or 2 if you like them very runny.

When the timer beeps, you can perform a quick release by moving the pressure release to “Venting,” or you can let the pressure release naturally.

Transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water. Allow the eggs to cool for at least 5 minutes.
