Instructions
  1. Place the inner pot into the cooker base and set the trivet that came with your Instant Pot in the bottom of the pot.
  2. Pour the water into the pot and then place the potato / potatoes on the trivet.
  3. Lock the lid into place, making sure the nozzle is in the sealing position.
  4. Use the Manual setting and set the timer for 15 minutes. Use the natural release method when the timer is up.
  5. When all the pressure is out of your pot, carefully remove the lid and allow your potatoes to cool a bit before you use them.
Recipe Notes

Note: If your potatoes are really small, follow this technique exactly, but set the timer for 10 minutes instead of 15 minutes.

    Hi Rileysmom2019,

    The recipe states only wash and scored down the middle. They are red potatoes so if you are using a larger variety than you may have to cut them or increase cooking time if whole.
