  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk (396 grams)


Instant Pot Dulce de Leche

  1. Remove the label of the can. Keep the can sealed.

  2. Inspect the can to ensure it doesn't have any dents.

  3. Place the sealed can in an instant pot or pressure cooker, filled up with water to capacity.

  4. Set the pressure for high.

  5. As soon as the pressure cooker is under pressure, start counting 35 minutes.

  6. After 35 minutes, turn the pressure cooker or instant pot off. Let the pressure release naturally. And let the can cool down all the way in the water before removing and opening, which may take a few hours.


  1. Store dulce de leche covered, in the fridge for up to 15 days. Store packaged tightly in the freezer for 1 to 2 months.

Recipe Notes

Quantity: I recommend cooking only one can at a time.

Water: ensure the can is covered in water.

Cool down: make absolute sure the can of condensed milk has cooled down completely before removing from the water and opening it.
