Wash and scrub potatoes. Cut a cross down the potato, going about halfway through.
Add 1 cup water and a wire rack/trivet to the instant pot. Place potatoes on rack. Close Instant Pot and set to pressure cook for 14 minutes on high.
Quick release when timer goes off. Place on a baking sheet and spread olive oil over each potato. Season with salt.
Cook for 30 minutes in oven or until the insides are tender and easily mashed. Serve immediately as a side dish, fill them up with your favorite toppings (I love broccoli and cheese), or use them as the base for our Sloppy Joes!
Size of your potatoes, how many you cook, and temperature of your water all impact how long they need to cook. See the post for more details, but you may need to roast longer or shorter depending on your situation.
