  • 2 – 4 whole sweet potatoes small or medium size
  • 1 cup/250ml cold water


  • Rinse and scrub the sweet potatoes well in cold water.
  • Add the cold water to the Instant Pot and add a trivet or steamer rack.
  • Arrange the whole potatoes on the rack, and close the lid. Make sure you seal the valve.
  • Pressure cook them based on size: 
    Small size - 18 minutes; Medium size - 25 minutes (the most common ones you find at the grocery store); Extra large, long sweet potatoes - 35 minutes
  • Once they are cooked and the IP beeps, do a 10-minute Natural Release. Open the lid carefully and serve them with your desired toppings.
