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.
