here is a link, she shows a loaf pan but use what fits your pot.

I just made myself a perfect fresh hard boiled egg in the Instant Pot. The peel
slides right off. I have also made that egg loaf to use in potato salad. Easy peasy

I believe eggs from the store are never fresh. I start with room temp eggs, bring to boil 11 minutes, leave pan on burner but turn heat off. Hard boiled eggs are usually in our refrigerator. Mother had chickens & I recall her setting eggs aside to “age” so they would peel easily.

I agree Tranum. By the time the eggs go from farm to distributor to grocery store shelf they are at least a week old and probably older. I have my own flock of laying hens and I will do like your mother if I can. Age them for a week or so for hard boiled eggs.

I was taught in Home Ec class to put eggs in pan of cold water and bring to boil. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 20 min. The shells pop right off.

I add lots of salt which makes the shells come off easier, and I use vinegar, it prevents a mess if one of them break in the water. It helps them clump so its not as bad and lots of times it can save an egg if its only a crack

Salt the water real good as eggs boil and they will peel right off. An old boyfriend taught me that trick. Also if you plunge the just boiled eggs into cold water immediately, they won't have the green edge around the yolk.
