How to Make Delicious Instant Pot Rice in 10 Minutes (Plus, 4 Recipes to Try)

Rice has the ability to make any savory meal better. From meat dishes to stir-fries, to seafoods—including the obvious, sushi—rice creates a complementing texture to it all. If only it didn't come with so many strings.

An Instant Pot. Ever since this electric pressure cooker became a must-have kitchen appliance, it has shown how accommodating it can be to other various time-consuming and complicated tasks. An Instant Pot can make mashed potatoes and hard-boiled eggs. It can take care of dry beans and grits. And in case you needed another reason to love it, it can also manage white rice.

If you're tired of making rice that's either overcooked or undercooked, or you simply don't have the time or space to devote to it, follow these instructions for making Instant Pot white rice that's everything this classic grain should be.
