Why Make Cheesecake in the Instant Pot?

The steamy environment that pressure cooking creates results in 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 Oreo cheesecake recipe cooks in just 35 minutes (plus another 12 minutes of natural release time).

Two Tips for Making Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake

Tip #1: Be sure to take the time to run a fork back and forth through the cheesecake several times to remove air bubbles.

Otherwise, during cooking the air bubbles will try to escape and cause your cheesecake to crack. Although cracks won't change the deliciousness, it just won't be as pretty and presentable.

Tip #2: When you are ready to place your cheesecake into the Instant Pot, you'll want to be sure to make a sling out of aluminum foil.

This will give you "handles" to easily get the springform pan in — and especially out of — the Instant Pot. To make a sling, simply take 2-foot piece of aluminum foil from the roll and fold into thirds.

Place the springform pan in the center of the strip, and keep a finger on each side the pan (to avoid tipping) while holding the ends of the sling to lower into the Instant Pot.

Do You Need A Special Pan to Make Instant Pot Oreo Cheesecake?

No and Yes. You'll use a springform pan for cooking just like you would when baking a cheesecake in the oven. This cheesecake pan is a favorite as well as a push pan. However, you'll need to get a small 7-inch springform to fit inside the Instant Pot.

Recipe FAQs

What's the best cheesecake?

To me, a classic New York Cheesecake or Oreo Cheesecake are my favorite cheesecakes. You will find that depending on who you ask depends on what they recommend the best cheesecake to be.

How do I make sure my cheesecake doesn't crack?

1. Use room temperature ingredients.
2. Don't overmix the batter once you stir in the eggs.
3. Springform pans or push pans are recommended for optimal cooking.
4. Don't over-bake the cheesecake.

Do you need a water bath for cheesecake?

The Instant Pot can't come to pressure without a water bath. So the cheesecake water bath helps the Instant Pot work properly but you need to make sure also use have a water bath, as cheesecake is a rich custard. So the water bath allows your delicate dessert to cook properly.

How long should cheesecake cool before going in fridge?

I allow my cheesecake to cool for 1-2 hours, and then I cover and refrigerate. Some recommend allowing the cheesecake to cool for up to 4 hours. But, allowing your cheesecake to sit out for an extended time can cause bacteria to grow.

Supplies for Making 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.
