To wash potatoes you will need clean running water and a scrubber vegetable brush. Let the water run cool or a bit warmer if you are like me and hate for your hands to freeze while you are cleaning your potatoes.
The fastest way to cook baked potatoes is using the microwave. In this case, do not wrap the potatoes. Remember–no foil in the microwave oven! Just wash and prick your potatoes as before. But this time, lay them on a microwave-safe plate.
The first thing you will do is wash your potatoes so they are nice and clean. To prevent the potatoes from bursting, poke them with a fork about 3 times on each side. Add in 1 cup of cold water and the trivet for your Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker. Then place the potatoes on top of the trivet.
