Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 3-6 baking potatoes
  • 1 cup of water


  1. Use a fork or other sharp utensil to poke holes all over the potatoes. This helps tenderize the potatoes by letting the steam reach the inside of the potatoes.
  2. Add the steaming rack or other vegetable steamer into the Instant Pot.
  3. Add in one cup of water.
  4. Add in 3-6 potatoes.
  5. Seal the Instant Pot lid and cook on "Manual" high pressure for 30 minutes. If you are using small to medium potatoes cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Once done allow Instant Pot to naturally release the steam.
