Sometimes I ask myself, what can’t the Instant Pot do?

They can basically do anything and everything, making your life so much easier, especially when it can “bake” potatoes in just 15 minutes.

I’m dead serious. All you have to do is pierce your potatoes 5-7 times with a fork, throw it into your IP (using the metal trivet) and let it pressure cook for just 14 minutes to be exact.

There’s no babysitting, no rotating of pans, no fuss here.

Just let it release pressure naturally – then slice open your potatoes and add on all your butter, salt and pepper. You can also load them up with cheese, bacon and chives.

It’s completely up to you but you really can’t go wrong either way. Because you just baked your potatoes in 15 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 5 medium russet potatoes*
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Add water to a 6-qt Instant Pot®. Place metal trivet into the pot.
  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork; place potatoes on top of the trivet. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high, and set time for 14 minutes. When finished cooking, naturally release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions, about 20-30 minutes.
