Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe–easy to peel hard boiled eggs without the gray ring around the yolk, made in your pressure cooker.
Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe
I wanted to share a recipe that you can use every single day–hard boiled eggs! I love making hard boiled eggs for salads and to put in my kids lunches. They are a great source of protein in a convenient form. Now I know you can easily boil eggs on the stove. Or you can even bake them in your oven. However, I really prefer the Instant Pot because they peel so easily and if you’re making deviled eggs and want them to look nice that’s really important! I also have found them easier to get just right in the Instant Pot without the grayish/bluish coloring around the yolk.

You’ll make this instant pot hard boiled eggs recipe simply by adding 1 cup of water into the bottom of the Instant Pot. Then you’ll place the stainless steel trivet in the bottom. Add as many eggs as you’d like. I usually add around 6 eggs. Then you’ll close up the pot and set the timer for 2 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes for the Instant Pot to build up enough pressure. Then it will cook for 2 minutes. After the beeper goes off you’ll just let the pressure release naturally by letting it sit for a few minutes (about 10-15 minutes) with the lid on. Then you’ll remove the lid and use tongs to place the eggs in a bowl and then run cold water over them. After that feel free to eat them or just store in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.
What Instant Pot Did You Use?
For these pressure cooker easy to peel hard boiled eggs I used this Instant Pot IP-LUX60 V3 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker. It’s 6 quarts, so the same size as most slow cookers. It cost me around $80 on Amazon.
Easy to peel hard boiled eggs without the gray ring around the yolk, made in your pressure cooker.
- 1 cup water
- Place steamer basket* or stainless steel trivet* in the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add 1 cup of water into the bottom of the pot.
- Add in as many eggs as you’d like into the steamer basket or on top of the trivet (don’t fill higher than halfway full).
- Secure the lid and turn the sealing vent to “sealing”.
- Press the manual button/pressure cook button and adjust the time to 2 minutes (high pressure).
- Once the timer beeps let it sit for 10-15 minutes and then turn the valve from “sealing” to “venting.”
- Remove the lid and use tongs to place the eggs in a strainer and then run cold water over them. After that feel free to eat them or just store in the fridge until you’re ready to use them.
My pressure cooker took 10 minutes to come to pressure. Then it took 2 minutes to cook. And then 10 more for the pressure to release naturally. So total time from start to finish was around 22 minutes. I used a 6 quart Instant Pot for this recipe.
