Instant Pot Perfect White Rice

Instant Pot Perfect White Rice

4.5 from 8 reviews

Perfect, no rinse, rice that requires only a couple minutes of your time!


  • 1 cup long grain white rice (rinsed or unrinsed)
  • 1 1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon butter


  1. Add rice, chicken broth, salt, and butter to the pressure cooker pot and stir.  
  2. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 3 minutes.
  3. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes and then release any remaining pressure.
  4. Fluff the rice with a fork.  Serve immediately.


  • The rice to liquid ratio works for both rinsed and unrinsed rice.  Unrinsed will be a tad sticky (not clumpy), rinsed will be more separated
  • Freeze any extra rice in resealable freezer bags.  I love having it on hand for quick rice bowl dinners and fried rice
  • Double ingredients if needed.  I’ve never tried tripling it
