How long does it take to cook the potatoes in a pressure cooker?
It really doesn't take long to cook potatoes in the pressure cooker. Now, for the mashed potatoes in an instant pot, I only set the timer for just 6 minutes so they are smooth enough to mash.
Now, if you want your potatoes to be a little firmer for a thicker mashed potato, I'd set the timer for just 4 minutes. Either way, you're going to have amazing potatoes.
What do you need to make instant mashed potatoes?

How to mash potatoes in a pressure cooker?
Peel and cut the potatoes into pieces first. Then place the peeled and cut potatoes in the pressure cooker or instant pot. Add 1 cup of water.
Then put the cap on top and make sure your nob is sealed. Then click the manual button and turn it to 6 minutes.
Then walk away and wait until it rings. Do the quick release on top to relieve pressure. Then add the butter, milk, salt, and pepper.
Mix well with an electric hand mixer (one for sale right now) right in the instant pot or mash the potatoes with a manual potato masher until the potatoes are super smooth. Serve and enjoy!
