Rice and Grains

Rice grains Rice and 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.

The provided measuring cup (180ml) can be used to measure the required grain-water ratios. One cup of grain yields about one serving to one adult.

Please note that the cooking time is pressure keeping 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.
