FAQs

What are the best potatoes to cook in the Instant Pot?

Any type of potatoes will work! Yukon golds, russet, red potatoes - you name it!

How do I make roasted potatoes crispy?

If you want to have even more crispiness on your potatoes, you can make that happen. Smaller potatoes will end up cooking up crispier than bigger ones - and those that are oiled well, too!

How do you reheat potatoes?

Reheating potatoes isn't hard, but you do have to be careful. The best way to reheat them is to use your microwave in a short burst of time.

This will make them warm all the way through quickly. The big thing to keep in mind, however, is that when you reheat potatoes, they aren't going to be crispy.

  1. Can you use a trivet/wire stand instead of the air fryer basket (since there would still be air circulation)? Thanks!

  2. I am curious to know why the baking soda is added to the potatoes for the boiling part of the recipe. I have heard of it being used with green vegetables to maintain their color, but never with potatoes!

    1. The reason for the baking soda is for the crisping part of this recipe. It helps the outside of the potatoes get crisp in the air fryer while the insides stay soft.
