Use your Nesco Pressure Cooker instead of the old-fashioned method of boiling them on the stovetop. Pressure cooking guarantees your potatoes will be done perfectly every time, faster than traditional boiling.
Add 2 cups of water and 5 pounds Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered. Cook on HIGH PRESSURE for 5 minutes. When time is up, use the quick release to release pressure. Use a Hand Mixer on Speed 14 to mash potatoes to desired texture while adding other ingredients.
