I love that the Instant Pot can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker and more! I’m all about saving space in our small kitchen and making the most out of the space we do have.
I have come to love the rice mode! All of the rice I make comes out tasting so amazing. It’s light, fluffy and the perfect texture.
Each of these Instant Pot Rice recipes uses the NATURAL pressure release. This simply means just let the Instant Pot cool down once the rice cycle is done before opening. This helps make your rice soft and fluffy.
