Pressure Cooker Hard-Boiled Eggs

12 MIN
Make a dozen of these hard-boiled eggs right in your RICARDO electric pressure cooker or Instant Pot.



  1. Pour the water into the pressure cooker. Place the steaming tray in the machine and add the eggs.
  2. Cover and select the Programmable function on HI (high pressurization). Set the machine to cook for 6 minutes for soft egg yolks or 8 minutes for firmer yolks.
  3. Let the pressure release manually to avoid overcooking the eggs. Remove the eggs from the pressure cooker and plunge in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Peel the eggs.


The biggest advantage of cooking eggs in the pressure cooker is that they are easier to peel.
