I almost didn't buy this item because I thought I didn't really need it for my Instant Pot. I am SO GLAD I bought it anyway. I have used this tns of times, though not for eggs yet. The trivet that comes with the Instant Pot is sometimes not that great because either the handles get in the way (like if you're using a springform pan, or it is too short, like if you are trying to cook meat and rice or meat and potatoes together. Definite must buy item!!
