Instant Pot, How to Make Instant Pot Boxed Mac N Cheese

This is a really easy way to make Kraft (Or Annie’s, or Trader Joe’s or even the store brand) Mac N Cheese in the Instant Pot.



1 package any type of Mac & Cheese

1 cup of water

1/4 cup milk

After Cooking:

1/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons butter

Cheese packet (this comes with it)


  1. This is the package that I used in this recipe. Any type of Mac & Cheese will work, I have used Annie’s, Trader Joes, and store brand. They all use the same recipe.
  2. Pour the macaroni, 1 cup of water and 1/4 cup of milk into the Instant Pot.
  3. Set the lid on, making sure it’s in the sealed position. And set the timer for 4 minutes at manual high pressure.
  4. Now probably one of the most important steps in making this. When the time is up, you must release the pressure of the Instant Pot, otherwise, you will end up with sticky and gluey pasta.
  5. Mix in the butter, and milk, and of course the cheese packet. Mix well.
  6. Continue to mix, until all of the cheese packet is absorbed by the liquid.
  7. Plate, serve and enjoy!
