  • 1.5 cups water
  • 12 raw eggs (in shell) (you can make anywhere from 1 to 12)
  • bowl of ice water


  1. Add the 1.5 cups of water to the Instant Pot inner pot.

  2. Using the trivet that came with your Instant Pot, or a steamer basket, carefully arrange your eggs inside the pot on top of the trivet or basket.

  3. Cook on low steam for 5 minutes.

  4. Allow the Instant Pot to naturally release for 5 minutes, and then use the quick release lever to release the remaining pressure.

  5. Use tongs to place your eggs in the bowl of ice water for 5 minutes.

  6. Peel and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
