Close your Instant Pot lid by twisting the lid on and closing the valve by pushing it away from you. 

Set your Instant Pot to High pressure for 10 minutes. After it is done cooking, allow it naturally to release for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes, manually release by pulling the valve towards you with a hot pad or towel to prevent burning from the hot steam. 

Remove each dish from the Instant Pot with tongs, and transfer to a cooling rack. Allow it to cool before removing the aluminum foil.

Place a tsp of sugar on the custard on each dish. Spread evenly.

Using a culinary torch, torch the sugar to create a hard sugary, shell.
