  • 12 Eggs
  • 1 Cup Water


  1. Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of your Instant Pot. 

    Then add rack 

    Place the eggs on rack - I have been able to fit a full dozen pretty easily 

    Replace lid and make sure it is set to "SEAL" not "Vent" 

    Hit the "Manual" button and set the time for 4 minutes 

    Once timer goes off - do a quick release of pressure - I like to use a dishcloth to protect my hands

    Remove eggs and place them in a large bowl filled with cold water and some ice to stop the cooking process. 

    Once the eggs have cooled approximately 5 minutes -you can eat them up!!
