Cool Kitchen Steamed Potatoes - Instant Pot

Maggie M


When it's too hot to boil or steam potatoes for potato salad or home fries, use the Instant Pot.

It's faster and your kitchen will stay cool !

I use russet potatoes but you could use any potato you enjoy. For smaller potatoes you will want to decrease the cook time a bit.
