Instant Pot Boiled Eggs

So we got an Instant Pot a few months ago as we didn’t have an oven after moving house. The instant pot was a life saver it honestly saved us from endless takeaways, beans on toast and malnutrition. The boys love both ‘dippy’ soft boiled eggs and hard boiled. I struggle to get it right in a saucepan but I don’t have to worry anymore. We have an Instant Pot Duo 10 in 1 so others models may vary. Give it a go and see how you get on.

Save your egg shells and use them to make a fun educational game for the kids or repurpose them and use them in your garden to help your plants see my blog post Smashing Eggs to see how.


  • Fresh Eggs – any amount you want (we use large free range)
  • Cold Water approx one mug so fit under the trivet


  1. Tip a cup of cold water in the Instant Pot
  2. Place trivet inside – make sure the water is below the trivet
  3. Add whole eggs and place on trivet
  4. Seal the lid
  5. Set to Pressure Cooker – Custom mode on High.
  6. For soft boiled eggs cook set for 3 minutes – Hard boiled 5 minutes
  7. When finished quick release the pressure
  8. Warning the trivet will be hot so do not touch
  9. Remove eggs and enjoy – they will be hot so you can add cold water to cool them down so easier to touch

Tip – To stop boiled eggs from browning cool them down in a cold water ASAP if you have some ice available use it the colder the better.
