  1. Rinse the rice in a fine-mesh strainer.

  3. Add water. Close and lock the lid of the Instant Pot. Press [Pressure Cook] and then use the [ - ] button to set 1 minute of pressure cooking time at high pressure.
  4. When time is up, open the Instant Pot using the 10 minute Natural Pressure Release.

    Perfect rice. I used 2 cups rice/water and 2 tsp olive oil. 1 minute pressure cooker and 10 minutes natural release.

    Super easy. I did add a bit of olive oil, and very little stuck to the bottom. Clean up was a breeze. I won’t ever make rice on the stove again!

    So under the info button it says cook time 3 min but you pressure cook for 1 min and NR for 10. That sounds more like 11 minutes to cook.

  6. says:

    To prevent sticking on the bottom, do not select KEEP WARM. The first time I did this recipe, a layer stuck on the bottom. The KEEP WARM was automatically selected. A review suggested to turn off KEEP WARM and it worked!

    I followed the recipe exactly aside from the measurements. I cut the recipe in half for just two people. It was perfect.

    The first two times I made Jasmin rice in my instant pot I used the rice button and The rice was sticky like glue…terrible. Then I downloaded the app and used the perfect jasmine rice recipe. I hit the manual button and then backed the time down to three minutes, Using the 10 minute venting process and it turned out perfect

    I took the advise of two people who left reviews. 2 tbls water + equal parts rice and water. So amazinggggggggg!!!!!! Fluffy and delicious. I can’t believe it only took 1 minute (+10 natural release)

    I added 1\2 cup of additional water to this recipe. It turned out perfect and did not stick to the pot.

    Made the full 3 cups, added an extra half cup of water per the reviews, and a T or so of olive oil. Perfection! Saved the day after my SIL burned the other batch on the stove!

    Tried 2 different size batches:
    I did 3 cups rice, 3 1/2 cups water and 1Tblsp olive oil.
    Pressure cook 4 minutes, leaves on Warm setting 10 min. Then release steam. Rice was perfect.
    Then did 1 cup rice, 1 1/2 cups beef broth, after saute onions for fried rice, added some diced carrots, and again used dame cooking settings. Came out perfect!

    Ciro says:

    4 cups rice (not rinsed), 4 cups water + 1/2 cup, 1 tablespoon olive oil. Manually set for 1 minute pressure cook (warm off), natural pressure release for 10 minutes when done, then manual release rest of pressure. Perfect rice – suprised 1 minute cooked it so well when many say 4 minutes cooking.

    Contents will still cook while it is under pressure, though the temperature will gradually get lower as the pressure reduces naturally.

    The first time following the directions exactly the rice came out a bit dry… the second time I chose not to rinse the rice, I added it directly to the pot. I also added an extra minute (2 minutes total cook time) and a tablespoon of butter. Came out perfect!!!!

    This recipe worked out great! My rice was not dry and was not soggy. It was perfect and fast!

    Ken says:

    In the instructions it states to cook the rice for one minute but on the servings line it says three. Which is correct?

    Wderubeis says:

    Thank you reviewers with the tips. Added an extra 1/2 cup of water and turned off “keep warm” and turned out great and didn’t stick to the bottom.

    Instant Pot says:

    Hi KaitJo,

    The unit will diplay “Off” when cooking is finished cooking and “Automatic Keep Warm” is not turned on.

    Always ensure that there is no pressure in the Instant Pot before attempting to open it.

  22. Instant Pot
    Instant Pot says:

    Hi Kait,

    Since the rice will still cook while under pressure technically the recipe cooking time is 11 minutes, 1 minute cooking time + 10 minutes under pressure which is 11 minutes of total cooking time.

  23. Instant Pot
    Instant Pot says:

    Hi Rwolfe89,

    Ensure that your unit is properly sealed and that steam is not leaking from the unit.

    Did 1 cup of jasmine rice with 1 cup of chicken broth in IP, cooked for 1 minute. NPR for 15 minutes as I was busy cooking something else. Rice came out too mushy.☹ Next time I’ll try cooking for 4 minutes.

    Followed the recipe but did 4 cups rice 4 1/2 cups water 2 tablespoons of olive oil and manually set it to 1 minute and it came out perfect!!

    Worked out great! Will prob add a pinch of salt, some olive oil or butter, and use broth instead of water next time!

  28. Dosenuno
    Dosenuno says:

    Instructions are confusing. After pressing the pressure cook botton you have to wait for it to build up the pressure inside the pot. Then press the [-] button for 1 minute and THEN release the pressure for 10 min. All intstant pot books instrucitons are confusing on HOW to operate the appliance. Maybe it is just a bad translation from the original (French) language.

  29. Instant Pot
    Instant Pot says:

    Hi Dosenuno,

    This recipe was developed in English.

    Instant Pot cooking instructions are standard across all models.

    There seems to be some confusion the recipe doesn’t state press pressure cook then wait for it to preheat.

    It sates “Press [Pressure Cook] and then use the [ – ] button to set 1 minute of pressure cooking time at high pressure.”

    You would press pressure cook or manual and immediately adjust the time and pressure level. Once program, cooking time and pressure level have been set the program will start 10 seconds after the last button is selected.

    Once program starts it will begin to preheat and the once it reaches pressure will begin the cooking time. Once cooking time is complete, wait 10 minutes to release the pressure for this recipe; no less, no more.

  30. says:

    Recipe calls for more than I needed. I used two cups of rice, two and a half cups of water and a tsp of salt. Cooked for 2 minutes and allowed to warm for ten minutes. Perfect!

    Edward Tracey says:

    I do not know what “Natural Pressure Release” meant. Does that mean to leave the Pressure relief valve closed or open?

  32. Instant Pot
    Instant Pot says:

    Hi Edward,

    When the cook time has finished the Instant Pot will automatically switch to Natural Pressure Release. Ensure that the Steam Release (venting knob) is set to Seal (closed) and wait until the allocated Natural Release time has finished. Once complete, set the Steam Release to Venting (open). For more information on the Natual and Quick Release with your Instant Pot, please follow the link provided.

    Rinsed 1 1/2 cup of rice, placed in pot and added 1 1/2 cup of water. Added tbsp of grapeseed oil. Pressure cooked 1 minute with 10 minute NPR. Released rest of pressure, opened lid, fluffed up rice. Perfect!

    Netic says:

    I dont even have a “pressure cook” button on my machine it just says “Rice”. Help!!! I have the IP-Luxq

  35. Instant Pot
    Instant Pot says:

    Hi Netic,

    Pressure Cook and Manual are the same they were just renamed on other models.

    ValJam says:

    These instructions say 1 minute, the time says 4 minutes and the pressure release says 10 minutes. None of this adds up.
