The best thing about cooking rice with an Instant Pot is, that it’s so FAST and basically Fail-Proof! The Instant Pot Rice is done in just minutes!
WHAT IS BROWN RICE
Brown rice and white rice have similar amounts of calories and carbohydrates. Brown rice is a whole grain and a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, selenium, thiamine, niacin, vitamin B6, and manganese, and is high in fiber. White rice, unlike brown rice, has the bran and germ removed, and therefore has different nutritional content.
INSTANT POT BROWN RICE
By using an Instant Pot, you will love that you don’t need to wait for the water to boil or stir the rice like you would cooking it in a regular pot. Just set it and come back to the most delicious, perfectly cooked rice.
We love to use Brown Rice and sometimes Jasmine Rice. I will be giving you instructions for both of these recipes below. I am going to give you a HUGE tip before we get started though. This will have your Instant Pot Rice turn out every single time….it’s all about the Water: Rice Ratio! Always use a 1:1 ratio… meaning 1 cup water for every 1 cup of rice required.
HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT RICE
- Plug your Instant Pot in. Turn it on and press MANUAL.
- Adjust the + button to 22 (for 22 minutes).
- Pour two cups rice and two cups water in the removable metal pot.
- Line up the arrows on the lid and turn the lid until it locks.
- Make sure the lid is closed and turn the vent lock to Sealed not Venting.
- Once it is heated up, it will start counting down from 22 minutes down to zero.
- When it is at zero on the countdown, wait 5 minutes to let the pressure naturally release.
- Make sure you have on an oven mitt to turn the vent lock to venting… this will shoot out HOT steam.
- Let the steam fully release (the floating valve will drop down when it’s released).
- Open the lid and your rice is ready!

Here is another very helpful tip before you get started, always rinse Jasmine Rice. Don’t skip this step as it helps get rid of excess starches and prevents the rice in becoming glue-y link in texture.
- Rinse two cups Jasmine Rice under water until it runs clear.
- Place rinsed rice into Instant Pot and add two cups water.
- Lock lid and make sure pressure cooker vent is set to Sealed. Use “RICE” button or set to manual pressure for 12 minutes.
- Once done, allow to depressurize using the natural pressure release. If you are in a rush and want to do a manual pressure release, let it sit for at least 5 minutes first. Remember to use oven mitts when opening the lid. The steam is very HOT!
