  • 1-1/4 cups water
  • 8 hot dogs


  • Pour 1-1/4 cups into the inner liner pot of the Instant Pot or pressure cooker.
  • Add the hot dogs into the water in the inner liner of the Instant Pot or place into a steamer basket that fits inside the inner liner pot of the Instant Pot.
  • Press MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK (depending on model) and select ZERO "0" minutes. Place the lid on top and move the pressure release valve to the SEALING position. NOTE: It will take several minutes for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure. The hot dogs cook during this time.
  • After the Instant Pot comes to pressure, and beeps to indicate it is finished pressure cooking, do a QUICK RELEASE by moving the pressure release valve to the VENTING position to release the pressure fully. Then remove the lid and the hot dogs and serve.
