Step 1

Pour 1 cup water in the bowl of the Instant Pot.

Step 2

Add the trivet that came with the Instant Pot.

Step 3

Place potatoes in a steamer basket and put it over the trivet (none of the potatoes should be touching the water).

Step 4

Lock lid and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes.

Step 5

Leave on Natural Pressure Release for 10 minutes and then manually release remaining pressure.

Step 6

Transfer steamed potatoes to a mixing bowl and mash with butter, milk, and salt. (Use a potato masher or, for whipped potatoes with a thicker, creamier texture, transfer the potatoes to a standing mixer and beat on high until light and fluffy.)

Step 7

Add more milk if needed to reach a creamy consistency. Add more salt, to taste.
