Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes - the best recipe for mashed potatoes in Instant Pot. Creamy, buttery, silky smooth mashed potatoes that takes only 10 mins active time to make.


– 3 lbs. (1.3 kg) Russet potatoes, peeled (3 big potatoes, 1 lb. each) – 2 cups water – 3 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces – 1 cup whole milk – 3 dashes ground white pepper – 3 teaspoons sea salt – chopped parsley, for garnishing

Step 1

Place the potatoes in the Instant Pot and add 2 cups of water. If the potatoes are too big, you may cut each potato into half. Cover the pot and select Manual and set to High pressure for 12 minutes.

Step 2

When it beeps, turn to Quick Release. When the valve drops, remove the cover carefully. Drain the water completely but keep the potatoes inside the Instant Pot. Use a potato mash to mash the potatoes to your desired consistency. (I like tiny potato chunks in my mashed potatoes).

Step 3

Turn on the Saute Mode and add the butter, whole milk, salt and pepper into the potatoes. Stir to combine well until the mashed potatoes become creamy. Turn off Saute mode, garnish the mashed potatoes with chopped parsley and serve immediately
