Ingredients

  • 2 potatoes (Russet) peeled and quartered
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Peel and wash the potatoes, being sure to cut out any dark spots. Cut them in quarters.
  • Place the trivet in the pot and add 1 1/2 cups of water. Place potatoes on top of the trivet. It's OK to stack them if you need to. Don't put the potatoes in the water or they'll get mushy!
  • Press Steam and adjust time down to 8 minutes. Press Start/Stop. When the cook time has elapsed (timer will beep) do a QPR (quick pressure release) by flipping open the steam release valve. 
  • Remove potatoes from the pot and place in a mixing bowl. Add butter, milk and salt/pepper and then mash with a potato masher until creamy and well mixed. 

Notes

Feel free to adjust the butter and milk to your own tastes. Use heavy cream instead of milk for even creamier potatoes! Add liquid slowly as you mash, until reaching desired consistency.
