Choose even-sized potatoes, then wash your potatoes and then measure the cirumference of the fattest of them.
Add the potatoes to the Instant Pot and cover with water. You can also add some sea salt so they absorb salty water if you desire.
Put on the lid and turn the valve to the sealing position then set it to high pressure and set the timer depending on the circumference of your potatoes:3-inch circumference = 1 min HP + NPR4-inch circumference = 2 mins HP + NPR5-inch circumference = 5 mins HP + NPR6-inch circumference = 9 mins HP + NPR7-inch circumference = 12 mins HP + NPR
Wait for full natural pressure release, then drain the potatoes and proceed as desired.
You can serve right away with a little butter or make smashed potatoes or make potato salad or whatever your heart desires.
