The Great Hard-Boiled Egg Test

(Note: I am using the Instant Pot Duo Plus 6 qt)

Last night – I decided to run 2 tests; with 2 different methods.  First, the 5-5-5 method:

One cup water in the Instant Pot

6 eggs placed on the trivet – Press Manual (HIGH) set for 5 minutes

When the Instant Pot beeps – it will turn to WARM and begin counting UP.  When it reaches 5 minutes, you may then release any pressure left and open the Instant Pot.  Place the eggs in a ice bath for 5 minutes.

Next, the Low Pressure method:

One cup water in the Instant Pot

6 eggs placed on the trivet – Press Manual (LOW) set for 11 minutes

When the Instant Pot beeps after 11 minutes – immediately release the pressure and remove eggs to an ice bath for 5 minutes.

RESULTS:  Absolutely identical results; taste/look/peeling ability.
