Make sure the stainless steel insert is inside the Instant Pot. Add one cup of cold water to insert.
Make sure your IP is set to cook on HIGH pressure. Press the "manual" button and set timer to 14 minutes.
When done, the Instant Pot will beep a few times. Let it release the pressure naturally.
Gently remove the potatoes and place on a platter.
I tested this recipe starting at 12 minutes. The potatoes were cooked but too firm for my liking. When cooked for 14 minutes, they were soft and fluffy inside. I used medium size potatoes. If using small ones, 12 minutes should be enough. If using large potatoes, add 2 more minutes of cooking time.
It's important to poke the potatoes with a fork. It allows the steam from the potatoes to escape during cooking.
No foil is needed to cook the potatoes in your pressure cooker.
Make sure you are adding cold water to the Instant Pot. If you use warm water it will change the time it takes the IP to come to pressure, cooking time and the final result.
For Instant Pot MINI: cook max. 2 russet potatoes and enough water that fills the plastic cup that came with the mini. Cooking time remains the same.
