You'll need:

  • Instant Pot
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 eggs
  • Large bowl filled with ice water


Pour one cup of water into the Instant Pot. Add eggs, close the lid and set it for 6 minutes. When the timer goes off, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and then quick release the rest of the steam. Remove the eggs and put them in a bowl of ice water for a quick ice bath before peeling.

Ready to eat? Just peel off the shells and your hard-boiled eggs are good to go.

Pro Tip: "If you crack their shells, the water gets in there and loosens it up [for] easier peeling," Rachael says.
