  • Idaho Russet Potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 C water


  1. Wash potatoes and prick with a fork a few times
  2. Pour 1 cup of water into the pot
  3. Place a trivet or steamer basket with short feet into the pot. You want the potatoes to be raised just enough not to be touching the water
  4. Place the potatoes onto the trivet. If necessary, you can stack them.
  5. Close the lid of the pot. Turn the valve to seal and cook on high pressure for 10-20 minutes, depending on the size and number of potatoes.
  6. When the timer beeps, naturally release pressure for 10 minutes and quickly fast release the remaining pressure.
  7. Remove lid and season as desired. Enjoy!
