What tools will you need for this cheesecake?

The only special tools you’ll need for this Instant Pot cheesecake recipe is a trivet and a 6” springform pan. Make sure you have a 6” pan, otherwise, the pan will be too large to fit in your Instant Pot.

How can you prevent your cheesecake from cracking in the Instant Pot?

The secret to preventing cracks is to use cornstarch. It changes the batter just enough to make it not crack but doesn’t change the cheesecake so much that you notice it.

Another tip is to make sure your springform pan is well greased or non-stick. As the cheesecake bakes, it firms up and becomes smaller. If the cheesecake sticks to the sides, it will crack in the middle.

How long does it take for cheesecake to cook in the Instant Pot?

An Instant Pot cheesecake takes around 35 minutes. This does not include the time for it to come up to pressure or the time for natural release.
