The easy 5-5-5 Method

  • Place 1 cup of water in inner pot of pressure cooker (liquid is ALWAYS needed for the pressure cooker to be able to reach pressure.)
  • Place eggs in egg rack or carefully on top of rack that the Instant Pot came with.
  • Seal pressure cooker.
  • Set cook time to 5 minutes (5 minutes on high pressure–push the manual button and adjust timer to 5 minutes)
  • After cook time has elapsed, let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes (I suggest setting a timer that will beep at 5 minutes so you don’t lose track of time. )
  • Once 5 minutes has elapsed, release any remaining pressure in Instant Pot by using wooden spoon or kitchen towel to knock vent knob to vent position.
  • Carefully, remove eggs from pressure cooker and place in ice bath. Eggs are VERY hot, so use pot holder if you fingers aren’t made of steel!
  • After eggs have been in ice bath for 5 minutes, remove eggs from ice bath.
  • Peel and enjoy your PERFECT hard boiled eggs.
