Add 1½ c. of water to bottom of your Instant Pot. Place cheesecake pan on trivet that comes with your pot and lower into pot. Replace lid on Instant Pot and seal according to your pot instructions. Cook on high pressure for 40 minutes.

When time is up, allow cheesecake to remain in pot for 10 minutes, then manually release pressure and remove cheesecake. Cool cheesecake on wire rack then cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours.

How to Make Salted Caramel Topping

In a medium saucepan, heat brown sugar and butter until butter is melted and thoroughly combined with sugar. Add in sweetened condensed milk, corn syrup, salt and vanilla, bringing to a boil.

Continue to boil, continuously stirring until a candy thermometer reaches 225 degrees. If you don’t have a candy thermometer, you can drop small spoonfuls into a ½ cup of cold water. It is ready when the mixture forms a soft ball. Do not overcook as this will make the caramel become brittle.
