How to Cook Instant Pot Baked Potatoes
Step 1 – Start by cleaning up to 6 baking potatoes.
Step 2 – Poke several holes in each potato.
Step 3 – Place the steaming rack in the Instant Pot. If you don’t own a steaming rack, you can purchase one HERE.
Step 4 – Pour 1 cup of water into the Instant Pot.
Step 5 – Place the potatoes in the Instant Pot.
Step 6 – Place the lid on the Instant Pot and lock it in place. Be sure the pressure valve is sealed.
Step 7 – Press the Manual button and set the timer to 20 minutes for medium sized potatoes and 30 minutes for large potatoes. The pressure will start to build inside, and once it has, the timer will begin to countdown.
Step 8 – Set the pressure valve to quick release and stand back so the steam doesn’t hit your face. It is VERY HOT.
Step 9 – Remove the potatoes and serve immediately.
The baked potatoes come out perfect every single time, and have quickly become one of our family favorites!
