How about some tips on pressure cooking potatoes?

How about some tips on slow cooking (crock pot) potatoes?

Baked potatoes in 25 mins:

Pressure cook whole potatoes for 15 mins.  Place in preheated oven at
375 for 10 mins to dry the skins.

Never tried cooking just potatoes this way.  I like this though.

Basic stew:

If you have time, brown the meat and saute the onions and
garlic.  Throw stew meat, chopped onions, garlic, carrots, tomatoes,
quartered potatoes, red wine, water, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf,
sage, salt, and pepper into crock pot.  Turn on crock pot and go to
work.  Come home with fresh bread and add a spoonful of molasses to the
pot.  Have a drink.  Eat dinner.

This works great!  However, it only works well with medium-sized
potatoes.  Large potatoes don't cook through and small potatoes get
mushy.  I put beef broth in the pressure cooker and rubbed salt on the
skins.  The potatoes were very a-peeling!

Don't cook them too long,

Don't cook them too short.

Baked Potato in the Crock Pot

Wrap as many baking potatoes as you need in foil, individually.  Place them
in crock pot.  Do not add water.  Turn on low.  Let cook all day.  Great
baked potatoes!!!
