  • 6 medium potatoes about 5-6oz each
  • 1 cup water
  • olive oil optional
  • salt optional


  • Sour cream
  • Green onions
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Bacon crumbs


  • Wash, clean and scrub the potatoes really well of any dirt. After that, poke each potato, about 4-5 times all around the surface.
  • Add 1 cup of water to the inner pot, place a steamer rack inside and arrange the potatoes on it.
  • Close the lid and seal the valve. Cook in High Pressure for 13 minutes for medium potatoes, 15 minutes for large and about 11 for small.
  • When time is up, allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, after that release manually any remaining pressure by flipping the valve.
  • Carefully open the IP, remove the potatoes and serve.


  • After cooking the potatoes in the IP, place them on a baking sheet, rub/brush them with olive oil and sprinkle on some sea salt.
  • Broil for about 3-5 minutes, or until the skin is crispy.
  • Remove from oven and serve with favorite toppings.
