Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs is the best and most convenient way to make PERFECT eggs. Using the pressure cooker it will ensure you will have them cooked to perfection every time, hassle free.
The below methods assume cooking large eggs size. If you are cooking medium size eggs, reduce the cooking time by 1 minute. If you are cooking extra large eggs, increase by 1 minute.
Runny Eggs: 4 minutes at high pressure, with a Quick Release. Please note, that while we liked the consistency, we felt that this batch was harder to peel.
Soft-boiled Eggs: 3 to 4 minutes at high pressure, with 5 minutes natural release. We had the most success with 3 minutes on HP, followed by 5 minutes NPR, and a 5-minute ice bath. The yolk was creamy in the middle, but not runny.
Medium-boiled: 4 to 5 minutes at high pressure, with 5 minutes natural release. We feel that this method yields the perfect medium to almost hard-boiled eggs. The yolk is settled, but not over-cooked.
Hard-boiled: 6 to 7 minutes at high pressure, with 5 minutes natural release. Personally, we felt that this was a bit much cooking the eggs, the eggs were very well done. But if you are looking for a very settled egg yolk, this will work and it will be great to use in an egg salad.
