  • 1 cup white rice
  • 1 cup water
  • salt


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Rinse rice in a fine mesh strainer until the water runs clear.
  2. Pour 1 cup water into the inner pot of the pressure cooker. Place trivet over the water, with the arms up.
  3. Combine rinsed rice and 1 cup water into a heat-proof bowl that will fit inside the pressure cooker; lower it on top of the trivet.
  4. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 3 minutes on High Pressure.
  5. Allow the pressure to naturally release for at least 10 minutes but up to 20 minutes.
  6. Season rice with salt and fluff with a fork.

For extra flavor, cook the rice with chicken or vegetable broth instead of water. Or try coconut milk instead of water.

Honestly there are a million ways to cook rice, but this is a winner. Super easy and it works. Love that there's a step-by-step version, too. The coconut milk version will be my next try.
