"After years of adjusting, learning from failures, and sorting through advice from others that turned out to be good or bad, I finally have a great recipe that people flip over. The two biggest tips I've learned in making these is to heat the milk and butter before mashing in, and to use a hand masher as opposed to an electric mixer. Using these methods, I have NEVER had the potatoes come out pasty or soupy, always super-fluffy with just enough body."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 3/4 inch thick
These are very good potatoes although the secret is in the mashing and not the cooking. I am concerned that the potatoes could easily be over cooked, as you can't check them in the pressure cooker.
Makes perfect mashed potatoes. I have a cuisinart electric pressure cooker and it only takes 5 minutes on high pressure to get the potatoes soft. I used half the salt, a little more cream, and no pepper. Excellent recipe!
Works like a charm. I used purple potatoes. They were quite small so I cooked them whole (all about the same size), peeled then mashed. It is indeed technique and method more than ingredients. The warm butter and milk are important. I made half the recipe amount so with my pressure cooker I only needed only 5 minutes from the time I closed it (water already boiling). I think times vary between cookers. Thanks for the recipe and tips!
I made this tonight with red skinned potatoes and they were AWESOME! I didn't add the milk just the butter and only used 2lb sliced but they were great. Only took 5 minutes and done!
I am not sure if my pressure cooker is different but 30 minutes would cook 3/4" sliced potatoes into oblivion in my cooker... 15 minutes would be more than long enough... I normally quarter my potatoes and they cook through in less than 10 minutes. I'm at high altitude which may make a small difference!
So easy! I did add 5 large cloves of garlic when I added the milk and butter.
These worked beautifully! Fluffy buttery, and delicious! I can see adding in some other things to take it to another level, but for mashed potatoes; as is AWESOME! I love them!
