Note: you can double this recipe, just be sure not to let it go above the “max” line in the instant pot. Don’t forget to double the water/broth as well.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 large potatoes washed and cubed
  • 1 cups water or chicken broth
  • 1 cup warmed whole milk
  • 4 T butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt or more to taste and pepper to taste


  • Wash, peel, and chop potatoes.
  • Put the potatoes in the instant pot and add 1 cup of water.
  • Put the lid on, seal the steam valve, and cook on manual/high pressure for 12 minutes. 
  • When the cooking cycle is complete, do a quick pressure release by twisting the steam valve to “venting”.
  • Open the lid. There won’t be much water, so you don’t need to drain. Add butter, salt, milk, and pepper to taste.
  • Mash until combined and creamy- but don’t overwork or the potatoes will become very gluey.
