Use these methods to get perfect rice in your Instant Pot every time!
Add the ingredients in the appropriate ratios to the insert of the Instant Pot. Follow the instructions below depending on which rice variety you are cooking.
White Rice – Use the ‘rice’ button on the Instant Pot.
Brown Rice – Use the ‘manual’ button on the Instant Pot and set the timer for 22 minutes at low pressure. You may need to increase the time slightly to accommodate for water quality or the age of the rice.
Black Rice – Use the ‘manual’ button on the Instant Pot and set the time for 20 minutes at low pressure.
I use a quick release when cooking rice in the Instant Pot, but if you are having issues with sticking or aren’t in a hurry you can try a natural release.
Instant Pot Rice Recipes can be doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled (just don’t fill the insert beyond 2/3 full), but you shouldn’t cook less than one cup of rice in the Instant Pot.
Long grain varieties may need a few more minutes under pressure to be fully cooked.
