  • 4-8 baked potatoes scrubbed clean
  • 1 cup cold water
  1. Place 1 cup of water and trivet into the inner pot of Instant Pot. Pierce 4-8 clean potatoes several times with a fork. Stack potatoes on top of trivet.
  2. Close lid and set valve to sealing. Set Instant Pot on high pressure for 12 minutes. 
  3. After cook time has finished, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes then turn valve to quick release. 
Recipe Notes
Time to reach pressure: less than 10 minutes

Pressure cook time: 12 minutes

Natural pressure release: 10 minutes

Key to Success #1 – Pick Perfectly-sized Potatoes
It’s important that you choose potatoes that are similar in size for this recipe. Picking potatoes that are the same size will ensure that they are cooked evenly. You don’t want some potatoes to be overcooked and some to be under-cooked.

For this Instant Pot recipe, you’ll want medium-sized potatoes, similar to what you would find in the bulk bin at your grocery store. I’d estimate them to be about 6-7 inches long.

If you get larger baking potatoes, you’ll want to increase the high pressure cook time by a couple minutes to account for the thicker potatoes.

Key to Success #2 – Pierce the Potatoes
I always forget this step but it’s important! Dont be like me. If you forget to pierce the potatoes, they will explode in your Instant Pot and the skin will split open.

If your potatoes burst open, they are still perfectly tasty to eat. The skin will just be split open in some spots.

You’ll want to take a fork or a sharp knife and pierce the skin of the potatoes in 4 or 5 spots. This will be enough to let the steam escape and keep your potatoes intact.

Key to Success #3 – Allow Natural Pressure Release
Be sure you let the Instant Pot pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. This is an important part of the cooking time and it’ll ensure that your baked potatoes are perfectly cooked.

After the 10 minutes of natural pressure release have passed, you can go ahead and use the quick release valve to dispel the remaining pressure.

These Instant Pot Baked Potatoes turn out perfectly every time. And then comes the fun part – picking your favorite toppings. You can serve these baked potatoes as an easy side dish or top it with brisket or pulled pork or even taco toppings for a full meal.

Asus ZenFone 6 Review

Has Asus cracked the bezel-less design with the ZenFone 6? We think so - read our review and find out why.
Should I Buy The Asus ZenFone 6?
The ZenFone 6 is a phenomenal smartphone, offering an innovative Flip Camera system that not only provides high-end front- and rear-facing cameras, but allows for a full-screen display free of hole-punch cameras or notches. Combine that with high-end internals and all-day battery life, and you've got a great, all-round smartphone. 

Huawei MateBook 14 Review

The MateBook 14 is one of Huawei's new laptops for 2019 and is the perfect all-rounder. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Huawei MateBook 14?
The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.

Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter Review

We test Xiaomi's electric scooter, which will keep the big kids entertained for hours. It's now officially available in the UK, too, which makes it even more appealing.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Electric Scooter?
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter is expensive and not allowed on UK roads out the box, but if you have somewhere to take it this toy is an awful lot of fun. It's fast, smooth and almost entirely silent, with a battery that just keeps on going and decent brakes that stop you quickly but safely. This scooter is best reserved for the big kids, but that's no bad thing.

DJ Khaled - Father of Asahd Music Album Reviews

DJ Khaled has ranged from summertime hitmaker to self-help guru, but neither are all that interesting on his latest guest-filled album. There are plenty of voices but no clear message or intention.
The creep of positivity culture has been steady and relentless. It has become a dominant modality of Instagram influence and global culture ever since the publication of Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret and among its most ardent benefactors (and beneficiaries) is DJ Khaled. For years, he has blended be-your-best-self mantras with middling music to great fame and, presumably, growing wealth; he even published a book detailing his “keys to success.” In the Snapchat era, Khaled’s vague, emphatic preaching made him an intriguing public figure beyond music. But unfortunately, as in the arena of emotional development, shouting aphorisms does little to prompt significant artistic growth.
