Instant Pot Jasmine Rice
One of the first things we all should make after unboxing a new instant pot, has definitely got to be a nice batch of Instant Pot Jasmine Rice! Not only so that we perfect the cooking method right away, but also so that we can prep ingredients for a yummy entree to cook up in it next!!
If you were doubtful that your rice cooker could be outdone by any multi-purpose cooker like the instant pot or a pressure cooker, you will be very pleasantly surprised! It may take you a try to really get your right perfectly fluffy, but if you carefully rinse your rice, you should nail it on your first attempt.
We absolutely love our instant pot, couldn’t be happier with our rice results (no matter what variety we throw in to cook), and are having alot of fun creating and perfecting our recipes to share with you all here soon!

Instant Pot Jasmine Rice turns out perfectly in only minutes with your instant pot pressure cooker!
- 2 cups Jasmine rice
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 tsp salt (optional)
Rinse rice thoroughly for best results! Place your rice into a fine mesh sieve and rinse with cold water, using your fingertips to turn and stir the rice until the water runs clear (it will appear white/milky/filmy when starting to rinse the starch from your rice).
Place your water in the instant pot, add salt if desired. Add the rinsed rice into the water (keeping stray rice grains from the sides of your instant pot). Select the manual cook time for 4 minutes.
Allow your instant pot to go to 'keep warm' for 10 minutes after your cook time, then turn off your instant pot and do a natural release, venting the steam. Use a fork to fluff the rice, and serve immediately.
*This rice can be reduced or increased, using a 1:1 ratio of rice and water. You can use 1 cup each, 2 cups each, 3 cups each, or 4 cups each rice and water with the same cooking time successfully.
**1 tsp olive oil (or your choice of cooking oil) can be added when cooking your rice.
***Jasmine is a long grain rice, and cooks differently than standard white rice. Do not use the 'rice' setting (low pressure) on your instant pot or pressure cooker.
****Basmati rice can be cooked with this method!
