Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Make Extra Mashed Potatoes

Yes, you can. Just don’t go over the max line in the pot. But you can add more or less just keep the cooking time the same. 
If you add more potatoes, It will just Instant Pot longer to come to pressure.

What are the best potatoes for instant pot mashed potatoes?

You can use any potato of your liking, but I love russet or white. If you use red potatoes, you can leave the skins right on.

Why Do Mashed Potatoes Get Gummy

This is something I see people complain of often. Gummy potatoes are a result of over-mashing your potatoes. Each time you mash potatoes, it releases the natural starches in the potatoes. 
If you over-mash, it begins to gum up. So aim not to overmix your potatoes. 

How to Store Leftover Mashed Potatoes

Place any potatoes in an airtight container and tuck them into the fridge. You can store potatoes for 3-5 days in the fridge.

How To Reheat

Warm them up by the microwave plate or them on the stovetop. If you do stovetop, consider adding a splash of chicken stock to help potatoes not be overly thick. Stir often, or they will burn.
