Instant Pot Baked Potatoes come out fork-tender and perfectly fluffy in your pressure cooker in half the time it takes in the oven. This is a foolproof recipe for potatoes of any type or size!

Up to 8 Large Russet Potatoes Water

Ingredients You Need

Wash potatoes well. Prick them with a fork or knife about 8 times each.


Add 1 cup of cold water and place trivet or steamer basket inside your Instant Pot.


Place up to 8 large potatoes on a trivet. It is OK to pile up potatoes on top of each other.


Close the lid and make sure pressure valve is set to Sealing.


Cook small potatoes (2″ wide) for 15 minutes on High Pressure with Quick or Natural Release. And medium to large potatoes (2.5″ – 3″ wide) for 20 minutes.


Remove potatoes onto a plate, cut lengthwise open in a middle, fluff with a fork and serve with your favorite toppings.


Baked potatoes taste best fresh or same day. Maximum you can reheat in a microwave next day. Potatoes are not good freezer candidates either. Cook only what you need.
