Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs | How to boil eggs in Instant pot

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs, an easy and the most effective way to boil the eggs. Truly, Instant pot has just revolutionized the way that we boil the eggs. 

It gives perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs with firm yolk and no grey around the yolk every SINGLE time. 

Boiling eggs is no brainer task, however how many times did you face the following issues ?
  • The egg shell cracks when you drop it into the boiling water and the white leaks into the boiling water
  • Over boiled with grey color around the yolk or under cooked with running yolk
  • Hard to peel egg shells.
If you nod your head to 'yes' for all these questions, then Instant pot will definitely make your egg boiling method a lot easier and solve all the problems that i had mentioned above.

Actually, I'm new to Instant pot cooking and have been cooking it for the past 4 months only (as of March 2021) and during this time, not even once I had boiled eggs in an open pot. Even if i need just only one egg to boil, i would prefer to use the Instant Pot, because it's a lot easier. 

I'm not saying that it's the only way to get perfectly cooked eggs, but it's the easiest method to make boiled eggs that I have tried so far and I doubt that I will ever use the traditional method again of boiling eggs. 

Instead of adding the eggs in the boiling water, here in an instant pot, we're actually steaming the eggs and the eggs don't even touch the water. When I read about this steaming method in the Instant pot booklet, I was  skeptical on how it would be. But i was totally impressed with the output !
