When I make instant pot baked potatoes recipes I like to use Idaho potatoes. That’s because they are considered high-quality russet potatoes. The state of Idaho harvests more than 25 varieties of this label. These potatoes that are “Grown in Idaho” are shipped all around the world. They are cheap and versatile as well that’s why they are so popular.  The skin in thin, easy to peel off, and even edible. 

Idaho potatoes are great for making instant pot baked potatoes. They have a mild flavor and become very fluffy when baked while the exterior becomes a nice crispy layer. These types of potatoes are categorized as starchy which means they have less moisture and become fluffy and absorbent. These characteristics are perfect for frying, baking, mashing, and boiling!
