  • 20-30 hot dogs
  • 1 cup water


  • Pour water into the Instant Pot
  • Place hot dogs in the Instant Pot
  • Secure lid and make sure the vent is closed
  • Cook on low pressure for 1 minute
  • Quick release the vent to release the pressure


  • It will take approximately 15 minutes for the Instant Pot to reach pressure before cooking for one minute.
  • Our method was done using our 6 quart Instant Pot.  Other sizes/models may perform differently.
  • If you are using an 8-quart Instant Pot, you may need to use a half cup more liquid to make sure your Instant Pot will come up to pressure.
