Place 12 Eggs on the pressure cooker trivet in the Instant Pot, Ninja Foodi or pressure cooker and add 1 cup water.
12 large eggs, 1 cup water
Turn the valve to sealing. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes then allow them to naturally release for 5 minutes. If there is remaining steam and pressure, use the quick release to finish.
Use a slotted spoon to move them to a large bowl filled with an ice bath and soak them for 5 minutes.
Air Frying Directions
Preheat your Ninja Foodi to 270F.
Place 6 eggs in the basket and air fry them for 15 minutes. This will produce a medium boiled egg. If you want them to be more soft boiled, reduce the cooking time. If you want them to be more hard boiled, increase the cooking time.

Before you cook: Although this recipe is for Ninja Foodi hard-boiled eggs, you may be trying it out in a different multi-cooker or air fryer. Note that all cookers are different and depending on the age of the model as well as how fresh your eggs are will impact the easy peel ability as well as the cooking time. Finding the perfect yolk is each person's preference, so I highly suggest experimenting with one or two before cooking the whole dozen.
Regarding other models: If your particular cooker does not match the temperature and time settings in the recipe card, consult your manual for further instructions. The Ninja Foodi air fryer function is 1800 watts for reference.
For easy removal: I use the wire rack of the Instant Pot silicone sling to easily lift them out.
Easy peel directions: The easiest way to peel these hard-cooked eggs is to soak them in an ice bath immediately upon removal from the Ninja Foodi to immediately stop the cooking process. You can also place the ice water into the refrigerator to further cool them down.
Storage: Cooked eggs last in the fridge for up to a week when placed in an airtight container. Peeled eggs should be stored in a bowl of water in the refrigerator and be sure to change the water daily. Freezing is not recommended.
If using the air-fried method, you may see little brown bumps appear on the outside of the shell. Disregard these, they will not harm the egg.
