I have had an Instant Pot for well over a year now. I am still tickled by how easy it is to whip up a lot of my favorites.

Baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, pretty much any potato usually takes 45 minutes to an hour to prepare if baking.

I used to wrap up my sweet potatoes in foil and throw them in the oven. The waiting game was insane!

Not because they took a long time to cook, but because I always found myself poking hard potatoes that weren’t finished cooking EVERY time I checked on them.

Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes Tips

  • Cook the sweet potatoes in the Instant Pot for 15 minutes on Manual > High-Pressure Cooking. Allow the steam to naturally release for 10 minutes. Do not perform a quick release.
  • You can choose to use a steam rack while cooking, or you can place the sweet potatoes directly in the Instant Pot with water. I prefer to use the trivet that comes with the Instant Pot.
  • You can peel the potatoes beforehand or cook them with the skin on. When prepping sweet potatoes as a side dish, I leave the skin on. For mashed sweet potatoes, peel them first.
  • One cup of water is needed in the Instant Pot.
  • I love to season my sweet potatoes with salt, pepper, brown sugar, and top them with butter
