Instant Pot Yellow Baked Potatoes
In our house we tend to buy the big bags of yellow potatoes more often than Russets. We just prefer the taste and texture. We make these yellow potatoes into hash browns and we also like to eat them as baked potatoes. Did you know that you can bake yellow potatoes in your Instant Pot in about 20-25 minutes? It’s true. This is a game changer when you want baked potatoes for dinner but don’t have a whole hour to get them cooked.
Technically, these aren’t really “baked” potatoes…more like steamed. You’ll just add a cup of water to your Instant Pot and then place the potatoes on top of the trivet. I like to use potatoes that are all fairly similar in size. That way they cook at the same speed. Close up the lid and press the manual button to 10 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure and then the 10 minutes of cooking time. After the timer beeps just let the pressure release naturally for about 5 minutes and then you can open up the pot. It’s so super easy and you don’t even need to wrap your potatoes in foil.

What Instant Pot/Slow Cooker Did You Use?
For these Instant Pot Yellow Baked Potatoes I used this Instant Pot IP-LUX60 V3 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker. It’s 6 quarts, so the same size as most slow cookers. It cost me around $80 on Amazon. When I made a similar recipe in the slow cooker I used this 6 quart KitchenAid Slow Cooker.

Use your electric pressure cooker for the easiest and possibly the fastest way to make baked potatoes.
- Medium yellow potatoes, similar in size
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Pour 1 ½ cups of water in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
- Place your trivet in the bottom of the pressure cooker. Place washed potatoes of similar size on top of the trivet. I filled my Instant Pot about halfway full of potatoes. You can fill it higher if you want.
- Cover the pot and make sure the valve is on “sealing.” Press manual and set the timer to 10 minutes. Once the timer beeps let the pressure release for about 5 minutes and then turn the valve to “venting.” Remove the lid and serve the potatoes.
I used my 6 quart Instant Pot for these baked potatoes. I used yellow potatoes for this recipe. If you use Russet’s you’ll need a bit more cooking time.
