Instant Pot Rice

I love the Instant Pot because it’s a multifunctional product that can replace some of your other kitchen appliances.

For example, the Instant Pot can function as a slow cooker, steamer, saute pan, yogurt maker, and rice cooker! Imagine the space you could save in your kitchen.  

One of the most popular functions in pressure cooking is making rice.  However, it takes some time to figure out the right water-rice ratio and cook times. 

Each variety of rice cooks a little differently! I made it easy for you with this rice roundup list.

Best Instant Pot To Make Rice

Instant Pot actually makes a designated Rice Cooker, but you can make rice in any model of Instant Pot.

I personally use my Instant Pot Duo 6 quart, Instant Pot Duo 3 quart (perfect to make Instant Pot rice as a side dish!), and my Instant Pot Duo Plus.

Should I rinse rice?

It depends on the rice. I generally always wash rice, but read the package and it will tell you if it needs to be rinsed or not.

Some rice is fortified with additional vitamins and minerals, so washing the rice will wash those away.

I like to rinse most of my rice and I use this rice rinsing basket. It’s only a couple of dollars but it makes it so there’s absolutely not a single grain of waste!

The basket has special ridges on the edges, bumps on the bottom to help massage the rice, and smaller holes on the bottom to allow just enough water to allow rinse the rice without all the water flowing out.

It also has a little mouth with a colander-like spout to prevent waste.
