Hard boiling eggs, as simple as they seem, tend to be something you figure out and then you never mess with. You have your method, and you stick to it.
However, traditional ways of boiling them do require a bit of babysitting, which is why the Instant Pot is truly my personal favorite method for hard boiling eggs now.
In 15 minutes you have eggs that peel so easily from the shells and you don’t need baking soda or vinegar or salted water to achieve it.
Broken down into 3 five minute segments, these Instant Pot hard boiled eggs are going to change the way you do eggs.
For a bit of info on our own, we used an 8qt Instant Pot that was able to fit all 12 eggs in the bottom on a single layer. We have yet to test stacking them up, so to start I’d recommend placing as many eggs as you can in a single layer.

Instant Pot Steamer Basket (included with Instant Pot)
Place the steamer basket inside the Instant Pot, and place eggs in carefully in a single layer.
Add one cup of water, lock the lid onto the pot, and set the valve to "seal".
Cook on MANUAL HIGH PRESSURE for 5 minutes.
Once the timer goes off, allow it to sit for an additional 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes of a natural release time is up, switch the valve to "vent" and let any excess steam release.
Remove lid, and place eggs into ice cold water in a bowl for 5 minutes. Drain.
When ready to eat, simply peel and enjoy!
