Instant Pot - Hardboiled Eggs

I love using my Instant Pot.  It is extremely energy efficient and does not heat up my home, even when cooking for long periods of time.

Hard boiling eggs is dead easy in the Instant Pot and they come out perfect every time.  

I use the steamer insert and add about 1 1/4 cups of water to the pot.  In go the eggs.  I try to leave a little space around each egg and find I can easily fit nine in at a time.

Close and seal the lid.  Make sure the steam vent is in the closed position.  Select steam and adjust the time down to four minutes.  This will give you a hard boiled egg.  Three minutes will be a soft boil.

The Instant Pot will do the rest.  When it's done, vent the steam.  A neat trick is to put a dish towel over the steam vent which will keep the steam from going everywhere.  Open the lid and transfer the eggs to an ice bath.

I find these eggs peel perfectly every time and no broken ones!

Have a great day!
