As I have mentioned before, I make a lot of rice. My go-to method is basic Instant Pot White Rice, but some readers have mentioned that they don't like to clean the rice that sticks on the bottom of the pot. I understand completely, so I wanted to share the "pot-in-pot" method, which is just as easy and there is absolutely no mess to clean up after cooking.
To use the pot-in-pot method, place water along with a trivet into the bottom of the pot, and then combine rice and water in a glass (heat resistant) bowl. The glass bowl is placed on top of the trivet uncovered. This method takes slightly more time than cooking the rice directly in the pot, because the rice needs to steam longer than the 6 minute cook time. While the pressure naturally releases, the steam finishes perfectly cooking the rice.
Instant Pot® White Rice | Pot-in-Pot Method
1 cup white rice (rinsed, if desired)
2 1/2 cups water, divided
1. Place 1 1/2 cups water at the bottom of theInstant Pot®. Place trivet at the bottom. Mix the rice and remaining water in a bowl. Place bowl on trivet.
2. Lock lid, making sure the valve is in the sealing position. Set Instant Pot® to manual high pressure for 6 minutes. When finished, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before doing a quick pressure release by moving the valve to venting.
