How many eggs can you hard boil in an Instant Pot?
I would suggest doing more than a dozen at a time. But if you have a bigger Instant Pot then you might be able to hard boil up to 18 at a time. It might take a little trial and error depending on how big your Instant Pot is.
What is the egg button for on the Instant Pot?
If you are one of the lucky ones to have an egg button (aka you have a newer model then me) then you place your eggs in the Instant Pot hit the egg button and let the pot do its thing. Super simple!
How long does it take to hard boil eggs in Instant Pot?
5 minutes is what you need to set your pressure cooker too, or if you have an egg button that the time the egg buttons set the pot for.
Ingredients for Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs
1 Cup Water
Baking Soda, Salt or Vinegar if desired (You don’t really need any of those for this method, eggs peel pretty easily)
Directions for Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs
Place water in the bottom of Instant Pot and place the trivet in the pot.
Place ROOM TEMP eggs on the Instant Pot Trivet. Keep eggs in a single layer. The room temp is important, trust me.
Place lid on the Instant Pot and set for “Steam” adjusting the time to 6 min. Once the time is up, quick release steam and place eggs in an ice bath to cool.
Once eggs are cool and easy to handle, peel!
