Ingredients

  • eggs
  • 1 1/2 c. water

Instructions

  • Bring your eggs to room temperature. (They are less likely to crack.)
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the interior pot of your electric pressure cooker. Add the eggs on top of the water and place the lid on top. Be sure the vent is set to seal.

  • For 2-6 eggs, cook on high pressure for 5 minutes with a 5 minute natural pressure release.
  • For 7+ eggs, cook on high pressure for 4 minutes with a 4 minute natural pressure release.
  • For 18+ eggs, cook on high pressure for 3 minutes with a 3 minute natural pressure release.
  • (Natural pressure release is allowing the electric pressure cooker to slowly release the pressure on it's own. After the 3-5 minute natural release, turn the knob to 'vent' and release all of the pressure.)

  • Once the pressure is released, immediately transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water. Chill in the ice bath for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the ice bath and peel if you will be using them immediately or store them refrigerated for up to a week.
