Instant Pot White Rice

  • Author: kate jones


Make perfect white rice in your Instant Pot every time!



Equal parts white rice and water (so 1 cup water, 1 cup white rice; 3 cups water, 3 cups rice, etc.)*
Optional: 1 tablespoon butter or oil for every 2 cups of dry rice
Optional: Salt and pepper


Combine ingredients in Instant Pot. Use the manual setting to cook on high for 3 minutes and then allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes (don’t open the valve, just let it sit.) Remove the lid, fluff with a fork, and enjoy!


*If you’re at a very high elevation, you may need to add 1-2 additional tablespoons of water and cook it for 1-2 additional minutes; you’ll probably need to play around with the proportions and the timing just a little.
