  • 6 large brown eggs
  • 1.5 cup water


  • Plug in your Multipot, and pour 1.5 cups of cold water in the steel inner pot.
  • Place the trivet in the pot, and place the eggs on top of the trivet.
  • Then close the lid, and ensure the Multipot is in sealing mode (if you don't have an auto sealing lid, and have to do it manually).
  • Pressure cook on HIGH for 5 minutes, and select the pressure release mode to be - natural.
  • Once the pressure cooking time is up, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, and then manually release all the pressure from the pot by pressing the pressure release button.
  • Remove the eggs from the pot, and place them directly in an ice bath, and let them sit in the ice bath for 5 minutes.
  • Once the 5 minutes are up, start peeling the eggs.
  • Perfect, easy peel hard boiled eggs are ready.
  • Season with salt and chilli powder or pepper powder & serve as is, or use these eggs as an ingredient for other dishes.



  1. This is not absolutely essential, but it's best to use 1.5 cups of really COLD water. Because the quantity and temperature of water will determine how much time the Multipot takes to come to pressure. And this time is used to cook the eggs.
  2. This recipe uses 6 eggs, but you can follow the same exact timings (and use the same quantity of water) if you are hard boiling anywhere from 4-12 eggs. Though if you are using more than 6 eggs, you might need to stack them up one over the other, which is totally fine. Or just use an egg stacker like this one to make stacking eggs totally hassle free. If you need to boil more than 12 eggs at a time, it's best to start another batch. 
Storing Hard Boiled Eggs: You can store hard boiled eggs (peeled or unpeeled) in the refrigerator for a week. However, avoid keeping hard boiled eggs at room temperature for too long before refrigerating them.
