Updated: May 16, 2018
If you buy an Instant Pot for no other reason, soft-boiled and hard-boiled eggs make it totally worth the investment. They come out perfect every time and it's great way to make soft or hard boiled eggs for a crowd. I also like that you can quickly make hard-boiled eggs for egg salad. There are different thoughts on how cook eggs in an Instant Pot. Below I explain what works best for me and my Instant Pot.
Remember eggs are great food for any diet. They are filled with protein, low in calories, and very low in carbohydrates. Hard-boiled eggs, make great snacks, egg salad, toppings for salad.

For soft boiled:
