Instant Pot Baked Potatoes.  Make easy, fluffy, perfect baked potatoes in your pressure cooker in half the time (or less), every time.


6-8 medium russet potatoes

1 cup water


Scrub your potatoes clean. Stab with a fork 4-5 times each.

Pour 1 cup of water in your Instant Pot. Place the rack or steamer basket in the bottom, then place your potatoes on top.

Lock the lid and set the vent to “Sealed”.

Set to manual pressure for 12 minutes.*

After it beeps, let it depressurize using the natural pressure release or you can quick release after it sits for at least 10 minutes.

Cut the potato open and fluff with a fork, serve and enjoy with your favorite toppings!


  • If you use larger potatoes, you may have to add 2-3 minutes of cook time.
