  • 2 cups dry brown rice
  • cups water


  • Rinse rice well in a fine-mesh strainer, thoroughly drain.
  • Add the rinsed rice and cold water to the Instant Pot, stir to combine.
  • Place and lock the lid and set the valve to seal.
  • Press the manual button twice to turn off the keep warm function and set for 15 minutes on high pressure.
  • Allow to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick release to remove any remaining pressure.
  • Fluff the cooked rice with a fork before serving.


  • A 6-quart Instant Pot will cook up to 10 cups of rice at once. This makes meal prep easy as you can keep the extras in the freezer until you need them.
  • Rinsing the rice helps remove extra starch from the grains so that they don't stick together during cooking.
