But today, I am so excited to share how you too can make the most awesome baked potatoes in your very own instant pot.
Everyone in my family raved about these baked potatoes. And, I actually agree.

I think the thing that sets them apart from making baked potatoes in the microwave is how they are so moist. The texture is also pretty much the same as when I cook them in my oven (which is the way I used to prefer them). I really am not a fan of dry baked potatoes.
Another thing I like about this method is that they are easier to take them out of the peelings than they are when you cook them in the microwave. I have a few little kids who refuse to eat the peelings yet.
First off, this is the Instant Pot that I have, and it has been the best thing I’ve ever bought for my kitchen hands down. Just click on it for more details.
Here’s what you need to do.
- Grab your Instant Pot
- Pour 3/4 cup water in bottom of pot
- First, put in the steam rack
- Next, put clean, pricked potatoes in pot (I made 12)
- Then, put on Instant Pot top, lock it into place, and close steam valve
- Finally, choose the manual setting, reducing time to 10 minutes
So easy, and these will be the new family favorite in your home when it comes to potatoes.
And, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you need to get one. You really are worth it!
*Please note: Others who have commented on this recipe that cooking time may take longer with potatoes that are larger than medium. I think this is also the case if you are cooking only a few potatoes at a time.
So, in the case of larger potatoes, increase the cooking time to 15 minutes, following the same process.
