Scrub and dry potatoes. Poke each potato all over with a fork.
Place a rack inside of your instant pot and place potato/es on the rack.
Pour 1 cup of water over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set the valve to sealing.
For a medium 10-11 ounce potato, cook on manual high pressure for 16 minutes. Set the valve to venting to quickly release the steam. See notes for alternative cooking times for smaller or larger potatoes.
Let the potatoes sit for 5 minutes.
Carefully slice open the potato, and press it together to separate the flesh. Fluff the interior of the potato with a fork and add a pat of butter or ghee, a sprinkle of salt and fresh ground black pepper.
Add butter and salt and or desired filling.
Small Potato: 8-9 oz 14 minutes
Medium Potato: 10-11 oz 16 minutes
Large Potato: 12-14 oz 19 minutes
Choose how many potatoes you need to cook! It’s best to keep them in one layer on the rack, but you can stack on one or two if need be.
