Place the metal trivet that came with the Instant Pot into the bottom of a 6-quart Instant Pot. Add the water, then gently place the eggs, checking for cracks first. They can be stacked on top of each other, if necessary. Cover and secure the lid, then set the valve to "sealing".
Select "manual" high pressure and set for 5 minutes. It will take a few minutes for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure, then it will cook for 5 minutes. Prepare an ice water bath in a large bowl.
When the timer goes off, let it do a natural release for 5 minutes before releasing any remaining pressure using a quick release by switching the pressure valve to venting. Be careful of any venting steam and use a towel to protect your hands when doing a quick release.
Immediately transfer the hard boiled eggs to the ice water bath and let them sit for 5 minutes to quickly stop the cooking process. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week, or peel and enjoy right away.
