  • Place one cup of water into the Pressure Cooker cooking pot.
  • Place basket of eggs into Pressure Cooker cooking pot.
  • Lock on lid and close Pressure Valve.  Cook at low pressure (if your machine does not have low pressure, than use high pressure and release pressure after 8 minutes) for 2 minutes.  When Beep sounds, wait 12-15 minutes and release the rest of the pressure.
  • Open when you feel like it (within reason).  12-15 minutes is good.  If you plan to be away longer, drop the cook time to 1 minute.
  • Peel eggs now or place in the refrigerator for later use.


If you want your eggs a bit faster, set the pressure cooker to 3 minutes and pull them out after pressure is released manually (QR).
