I just want it to be not wet and smooshy when I use it to make rice/waterchestnut/chinese sausage/oyster dressing at Thanksgiving at Mom-in-law’s house!

I got Basmati on my third try. Rince rice 45 sec. under running water. 1 cup rice, 1 cup water, 3 minutes on high, 15 min natural release. Just like restaurant rice.

Pushing the “rice” button gives me 9 minutes on low pressure. 3 minutes on high pressure is much better.

On an Instant Pot?

My Instant Pot gives 12 minutes high pressure when you press the rice button.

I checked it again. On my IP the rice button is 12 minutes on low, not 9 as I stated above, and not on high pressure like your machine.

Different models must use different programs.

I think it's more likely that I'm wrong about the pressure. I'll check the next time I make rice.

I figured someone had to have done this analysis:

edit: Found a complete list that links you to all of the models; have substituted it for the one I posted initially.

edit2: For my unit, the Ultra, it says that the Rice setting is only for white rice.

Ever since I first learned about confirmation bias I've been seeing it everywhere.

Thank you!

Yes, for brown rice, I use manual for 20 minutes.

(And I have nearly poisoned myself by undercooking beans, but that's another story.)

This is what it says abot the rice setting on my "Duo Plus":

quote:
RiceLow PressureMade for white rice only. This fully automatic program adjusts the cooking time depending on the amount of water and rice in the cooking pot


How does it know how much is in the pot?

[edit] Looks like there is a lot more going on in that pot than I thought:

How smart cooking programs work

As I suspected, I was wrong about the pressure setting. The IP rice setting is, as Steve said, 12 minutes on low.
