We conducted 6+ tests with mixed baby potatoes at different cooking times & different cooking methods (Pot-in-Pot vs. Steamer Basket) in our Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker.
Here are the Instant Pot Baby Potatoes Experiment Results:
From the experiments, we found that cooking baby potatoes in a Stainless Steel Steamer Basket is more ideal than a Stainless Steel container using the Pot-in-Pot cooking method.
So, our most desired result in pressure cooking baby potatoes is Test #6. It produced the best texture & mouthfeel.

Pressure Cook Baby Potatoes: Pour 1 cup (250ml) cold water, then place a stainless steel steamer basket in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Place 1.5 lb (680g) baby potatoes in steamer basket. Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 15 minutes, then Quick Release. *Pro Tip: This will produce creamy & soft baby potatoes. If you prefer a firmer texture, reduce the pressure cooking time by a few minutes. (See Our Roasted Potatoes Experiment Results Here)
Make Creamy Roasted Potatoes: Set aside the pressure cooked baby potatoes. Discard water in inner pot & towel dry inner pot.
Heat up Instant Pot using "Saute" function (press "Cancel" button, then "Saute" button).
Once the indicator says HOT, add 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter and 1 tbsp (15ml) olive oil in Instant Pot. Add pressure cooked baby potatoes in Instant Pot. With a wooden spoon, gently stir the baby potatoes to coat them with butter. Sprinkle 1 tsp (4g) garlic powder and 1 tsp (4g) onion powder on the baby potatoes. Gentle mix the baby potatoes, then allow the powder to darken & harden a little. Taste & season Instant Pot Roasted Potatoes with salt and black pepper (if desired). For reference, we used roughly 4 pinches of coarse kosher salt.
Serve Instant Pot Roasted Potatoes: The Roasted Potatoes in Instant Pot will be piping hot, so let it cool for roughly 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!~ 🙂
