Achieve perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs every time using a pressure cooker. This method is fast, reliable, and ensures easy-to-peel shells, making it ideal for meal prep or a quick snack.



  1. Add the minimum amount of water recommended by the manufacturer to the pressure cooker. Position the eggs in the steamer basket, ensuring they are above the water level. Secure the lid and set the pressure cooker to low pressure.
  2. Cook the eggs under low pressure for 6 minutes. After cooking, remove the pressure cooker from heat and let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes.
  3. Prepare a large bowl with a mix of cold water and ice.
  4. Utilize the quick-release method to safely open the pressure cooker. Carefully transfer the hot eggs to the ice water using an oven mitt or spoon. Allow the eggs to cool completely, approximately 30 minutes.


  • – For easier peeling, use eggs that are at least a week old.
    – Adjust the number of eggs based on the size of your pressure cooker, ensuring they are not overcrowded.
