Instant Pot Rice

Instant Pot rice is a quick and easy way to make perfect rice every time. Here's a simple recipe you can try:


  • 2 cups white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)
  • Salt to taste


  1. Rinse the rice in a fine mesh strainer under cold running water until the water runs clear. Drain the rice well.
  2. Add the rice, water, butter (if using), and salt to the Instant Pot.
  3. Lock the lid in place and set the valve to sealing position.
  4. Select the manual or pressure cook setting and set the cooking time to 3 minutes on high pressure.
  5. Once the cooking time is complete, allow the Instant Pot to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes, then use the quick release method to release any remaining pressure.
  6. Carefully remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork.
  7. Serve the rice hot as a side dish or use it as a base for stir-fry, curry, or other dishes.

Enjoy the perfectly cooked and fluffy Instant Pot rice! You can also experiment with different types of rice or add spices and herbs to the cooking liquid to give the rice more flavor.
