    To everyone concerned about the water, please read the whole post.

    In the original post at the top of the directions she wrote,
    “Here are the directions for making these awesome Instant Pot Baked Potatoes:
    Wash Potatoes Thoroughly
    Poke Holes in the Potatoes on all sides using a fork
    ***Add 1 Cup of Water to the bottom of your Instant Pot**
    Place steam rack in the bottom of the instant pot
    Place Potatoes on the steam rack
    Secure the lid, Turn valve to seal, Cook on Manual Pressure for 12 Minutes
    Allow to Sit for 2 Minutes, then use Quick Release Method

    In her printable directions, it was accidentally omitted.

    This recipe does not work. They were still hard in the middle. Probably need to be pressure cooked for another 5 min.

    I’m really happy with this recipe. I followed the directions, which specified using 1 cup of water!! I’m not sure why others didnt find that in their directions. This will be on a regular repeat.

    Not completely cooked. Maybe my potatoes were bigger? They were average size russets. Even allowed extra release time as I was out walking dog. Adding extra 7 min.

    This person must not have an instant pot. They have 2 pressure settings Low and High. Too many people on the Internet don’t state the pressure settings when they post a recipe so I call BS on them actually using one. Please remove or fix your recipes.

    I tried this recipe using for potatoes. They weren’t even close to being cooked after 12 mins… Had to nuke then for another 5 mins

      If you aren’t going to put these under the Broiler you would want to cook them for 15-16 minutes, Also use High Pressure.

    Your print recipe version has left off 1 cup water , which makes a huge difference with the instant pot. No water, no steam. Otherwise great shortcut recipe, use it all the time

  8. Hannah says:

    Nowhere in these instructions does it tell you to add water. Hopefully someone who has never used their instant pot before doesn’t see this and try to follow it.

  9. Julie says:

    Do you not put water in the pot?

  10. Jennifer says:

    Doesn’t work without water?

  11. Ruby says:

    Do you need to put water on the bottom of the instant pot? That’s usually the cast but it’s not written in this recipe.

  12. KayLee says:

    I’m pretty sure you meant to add water right? I tried your exact instructions and nothing happened to my potato in the Instant Pot. I added 1 cup of water to your instructions and they turned out perfect!

  13. Kathy says:

    I don’t see where you put water in the pot. Don’t you have to put at least 1 cup of liquid in?

    1. K says:

      Yes I think she skipped that step in the instructions. As I was preping, I questioned it, but she didn’t call for it, so I didn’t add any (I’m relatively new to the instant pot). But my pot said BURN and shut off. So I put in water and started it again with success.
