Why Make Cheesecake in the Instant Pot?
Ever since it made its market debut, cooks have been raving about making cheesecake in the Instant Pot.
And it remains at the top of the list of popular Instant Pot recipes, because of the steamy pressure-cooking environment that creates such an amazingly smooth and creamy cheesecake.
Plus, it is so much faster! Traditional cheesecake recipes require over an hour of baking time, while this Instant Pot cheesecake recipe cooks in just 35 minutes (plus another 12 minutes of natural release time).
A Tip for Making This Instant Pot Blackberry Swirl Cheesecake Recipe
Make a sling out of foil so you can easily lower the cheesecake into the Instant Pot, and most importantly, lift the pan out without burning your hands when it's finished cooking. To make a foil sling, follow these 3 simple steps:
- Tear off about 2 feet of foil and lay on a flat surface.
- Lift the side closest to you, fold it up one-third of the way, and then press down.
- Fold the top section over the folded area and press down to make it flat. Your sling is ready to use!

Best Cheesecake Supplies for Instant Pot Cheesecakes
- 6-inch by 3-inch Push Pan or 7-inch by 3-inch Push Pan- I recently started using a high push pan instead of a spring-form pan. In my opinion, the cheesecake looks amazing this way.
- Silicone Sling- This is an essential unless you want to make a sling out of foil every time you make a cheesecake or use a pan in the Instant Pot that needs to be lifted out.
- Large Decorating Tips- I used a decorating tip and reusable icing bag to pipe frosting onto the top of the cake. It gives the cake a prettier, more professional style.
- Reusable Decorating Bag- Do yourself a favor and invest in a nice reusable bag for decorating cakes and cupcakes. It works so much better than the disposable bags and is better for the environment. Even better, they are pretty inexpensive.
- Parchment Rounds- Pre-cut parchment rounds (and squares) are available in a variety of sizes depending on your needs. This can be a huge time-saver so you don't have to measure and cut a circle out.
