Instant Pot Rice GrainsInstant Pot’s built-in “Rice” and “Multigrain” function keys normally provide the optimal way of cooking rice and grains. The marks on the inner pot provide a general guideline on the total amount of grain + water. However, if you want to cook some specialty rice or grains, please use the following grain:water ratio.

 

Please note that the cooking time is pressure cooking time on Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker operating at 10.2 – 11.6 psi or 70-80 kPa. Cooking times are approximate. Please use them as a guideline only.
