  • cooking spray
  • room temperature egg


  • Spray your mason jar with cooking spray and then crack your egg into the jar.
  • Put your rack inside your Instant Pot (this makes it easier to remove your mason jars if you use more than 1 at a time) and then pour in 1 cup of tap water into the Instant Pot.
  • Close the lid and set it to sealing and set the timer for manual pressure to either 3, 4, or 5 minutes.
  • Once done, quick release and remove the poached egg by carefully flipping the jar upside down (the jar will be hot! use oven gloves).



How Long To Poach An Egg In the Instant Pot

  • 5 minutes: solid whites, jammy to soft yolk
  • 4 minutes: soft whites, soft yolk, slightly liquidly
  • 3 minutes: soft whites, runny yolk
Please keep in mind that if you use different glass jars, your timing might be different due to the differing thickness and sizes of the jars. You can also poach more than one at once.
