  • 1 cup water
  • 6 eggs


  • Place the trivet into the bottom of the liner and add 1 cup of water. Place eggs on top of the trivet and lock the lid into place. Turn the pressure valve to the SEALED position.
  • Press the STEAM button and make sure it is in the NORMAL mode. Adjust the timer to 4 minutes for soft boiled eggs and 12 minutes for hard boiled eggs.
  • The pressure cooker will take about 2-3 minutes to come to pressure and start the timer. When the timer goes off, immediately release the pressure by turning the pressure valve to VENTING position. Allow the pressure to escape and then remove the lid.
  • Remove the eggs using a pair of tongues and put them in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.


  • To Store: Keep eggs refrigerated up to 5 days after cooking.
