Cover pan in foil and carefully place into pressure cooker on top of trivet. Cook at high pressure for 26 minutes, then allow a natural pressure release (will take from 20-30 minutes). Allow cheesecake to cool for one hour. Once cool, carefully run a paring knife around the edge of the cheesecake to separate from pan. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
