For most of these recipes, you will put water in the bottom of the pot and set the potatoes on the trivet. This keeps the potatoes off the bottom of the pot and adds the necessary water to create the pressure. This way, the potatoes won’t set off the burn notice and they won’t get waterlogged.

Why Use An Instant Pot?

The Instant Pot is one of the most useful kitchen appliances you can buy, because it drastically cuts down on the cooking time for developing flavors in soups and stews, getting tough cuts of meat tender, and even baking a cheesecake. And there are many accessories that will help you get more out of your Instant Pot.

If you don’t have one yet, check out our guide on which one to buy. Also see our guide to How to Use an Instant Pot for more information.
