Which Instant Pot should I purchase?

We have three of the Instant Pot Duo line. It has all of the features we like and works great! We recommend the 8 quart for a family of 5 or more (or if you like to make large cuts of meat and entertain often). The 6 quart is great for a smaller family or couple. I don’t recommend purchasing the mini as your primary pressure cooker, but it is great as a second pot for side dishes and desserts!

Can eggs touch in instant pot?

Yes. When making hard-boiled eggs in the instant pot, they can absolutely be touching. They can sit against each other on the trivet and even be stacked on top of each other.
