  1. Pour water in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Place steamer; add potatoes and eggs. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions and set timer for 4 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.
  3. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Peel eggs, remove egg yolks, and chop egg whites. Mash yolks and whisk with mayonnaise, vinegar, and mustard in a bowl until well combined to form the dressing.
  4. Combine chopped egg whites, potatoes, and celery; pour in dressing and stir until evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with chives. Refrigerate before serving.

Yummy but I had to add more seasoning. more salt, rosemary, paprika

This was the first thing I made with my new cooker and it was great!

The best potato salad I've ever had by far and the easiest to make. I followed the recipe except for the mustard, I used deli style with horseradish. Thank you Fioa for an outstanding recipe.
