With an Instant Pot and about 20 minutes, you can make fluffy, PERFECT white rice every time! Let us show you how.
Instant Pot White Rice
Cooking white rice in the Instant Pot is our preferred method because it’s fast, fluffy, hands-off, and yields perfect results every time!
Here’s what you need to know:
- Ratio = 1 part white rice (we used basmati) : 1 part water
- Cook Time = 4 minutes
- Release = 10 minute natural release, then release any remaining pressure

Instant Pot White Rice (Fast, Tender, Fluffy!)
- Add white rice and water (or vegetable broth) to the Instant Pot and stir to prevent sticking. Pressure cook on high for 4 minutes (it will take about 8 minutes for the Instant Pot to pressurize before cooking begins).
- Once the timer goes off, allow to naturally release for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove lid once steam has fully escaped.
