Instructions
  1. Place the washed potatoes in the pressure cooker and pierce the side of the potato facing up with a fork a few times or poke each a few times using point of a knife. Then, add a cup of water.
  2. Turn on oven to 450°F so to pre-heat while the potatoes are pressure cooking.
  3. Close and lock the lid of the pressure cooker.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes at high pressure.
  5. When time is up, open the cooker by releasing the pressure.
  6. Using tongs, and being careful not to remove too much of the skin, place each potato directly on the middle rack of the oven (poked holes facing up) and bake for 10-15 minutes - take out the smallest potatoes and serve first. Then, turn off the oven and let the larger potatoes continue to bake using the oven's residual heat for another 5-10 minutes.
  7. Enjoy your crispy, fluffy baked short-cut potatoes!

    I think i would cook potatoes longer in IP, after 10 minutes they were half done. I would probably pressure cook for 15 minutes. Jmo

    I agree that I will cook longer in IP next time. After the IP and oven I still had to microwave.

    I agree – I cooked 3 potatoes in the IP then put them in the oven for 15, and finished them off in the microwave.

    Even though a microwave is faster, when you enjoy a crispy skin of the OVEN, this drastically reduces the cooking time there.

    I did two potatoes wrap them in tin foil poke the holes in the potatoes and cook on high for 17 minutes I did not put them in the oven at all and they taste as good as restaurant potatoes

    It took me 25 minites to cook 3 medium potatoes. What am I doing wrong here? The recipe book said it takes 13 minutes!

    @LisaPot Its not you. I did two potatoes at 20 minutes and still had to microwave. We don’t need crispy skins, so I didn’t put them in the oven. Next time I’ll do two potatoes for 30 minutes.

    This recipe doesn’t work. We kept the potatoes 20 extre minutes in the IP , and they still were hard. It is not until 30 minutes in the oven saved our meal.

    I did 4 large baking potatoes at once….I set the timer on 45 minutes and my potatoes came out perfect….small potatoes (8 max) I did them for 20 minutes and perfect results….I will never eat another microwave potato again.
