How to Make Mashed Potatoes in an Instant Pot

Pressure cooker mashed potatoes are so easy to make! I used 3 lbs of potatoes for this batch, but you could easily double the recipe if you have a large instant pot.

I used russet potatoes, but you could yukon gold too… love those! Peel and wash your potatoes, then slice them into 1-inch pieces. No need to dice them up small!

Adding water and salt to potatoes in pressure cooker liner.

Place your sliced potatoes into your pressure cooker liner and fill with water, until the water is just covering the potatoes. Add some salt.

Steaming potatoes in instant pot.

Place your liner with potatoes into the pressure cooker, place the lid on in a locked position, seal the valve, and then select the “steam” option. Cook for 12 minutes.Potatoes after steamed in pressure cooker.

After the 12 minutes of cooking, you want to do a “quick release” on the pressure. I use the end of a wooden spoon and slowly release the pressure. It will take about a minute for all the pressure to be released.

Water drained from potatoes.

Drain the water from the liner. Then mash up the potatoes with a potato masher or if you prefer you can use a hand mixer.
