Tips for how to make Instant Pot Baked Potatoes

First of all, you’ll need to gather your ingredients and supplies. You’ll need your Instant Pot (with a vegetable steamer basket if you have one), a handful of potatoes, and water. Yep, that’s it, easy peasy.

  • Pick out 8 to 10 medium sized potatoes that would make good baked potatoes. They don’t have to be large, but you probably don’t want them to be too small either.
  • Wash the potatoes well.
  • Then take a fork and prick each potato all over. This keeps your potatoes from bursting while cooking.
  • If you have a vegetable steamer basket, place it in your Instant Pot. This will keep your potatoes from getting overly moist from sitting in water while they’re cooking.
  • Place all the potatoes in the steamer basket.
  • Add water to the Instant Pot.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot, and hit Manual (or Pressure Cook); set the time to 8 minutes.
  • Let it naturally release when done.
  • Serve while warm with all the fixings that go along with baked potatoes… Butter, sour cream, cheese, crumbled bacon, chives, etc.

Instant Pot Baked Potatoes will be your new favorite dinner side, especially when you serve them up with all the fixings, like butter, sour cream, cheese sauce, crumbled bacon, chives, etc.
