How Long To Cook White Rice In Instant Pot(1)

Instant Pot White Rice (8 Servings)


  • 2 cups of white rice
  • 2 cups of water
  • ½ teaspoon of salt


  1. Rinse the rice for about 30 seconds in a thin wire mesh colander beneath cold running water. Keep rinsing the rice until the water becomes less hazy (it won’t be completely clear).
  2. Pour out the extra water for about a minute, or until the colander is no longer dripping.
  3. Toss the rice, 2 cups of water, and salt into the pressure cooker. Spin the inner pot in the housing of the Instant pot a little to ensure that the rice is evenly distributed in the pot. Set up the release valve in the “Sealing” position, then secure the lid.
  4. Choose the “Rice” cooking program and set the pressure on the Instant Pot to low. (Use the default “rice” setting if your pressure cooker doesn’t offer high and low pressure settings.)
  5. The instant pot should typically automatically adjust the cooking time. Set the timer for 15 minutes on low pressure if you’re following manual instructions.
  6. Allow 10 minutes for the pressure to naturally release before moving the pressure release valve to the “Venting” position on the Instant Pot to discharge any leftover steam.
  7. Serve the rice; first open the pot and then fluff the rice using a fork before serving it.
  8. Cooking white rice in an Instant Pot is quite straightforward and easy; all you need to do is follow the correct cooking instructions to get the best results. For this recipe, the entire cooking duration lasted 25 minutes: 15 minutes of active cook time and 10 minutes for natural pressure release.
