If you're wondering how much rice you can cook in an Instant Brands rice cooker, the answer depends on the size of your rice cooker. For example, the Instant Pot Zest 8 Cup One Touch Rice Cooker has a 4-cup uncooked/8-cup cooked capacity. On the other hand, the Instant 20-Cup Rice Cooker has a larger capacity of 20 cups cooked rice. To determine how much rice you can cook in your specific model, check your user manual for recommended water-to-rice ratios and maximum fill lines.
To cook rice in an Instant Brands rice cooker, first measure out the desired amount of dry rice and rinse it under cold water until the water runs clear. Then add the rinsed rice to your inner cooking pot along with the recommended amount of water based on your desired serving size (usually a ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 for white or brown rice). Make sure not to exceed your maximum fill line!
Next, place your inner cooking pot back into your Instant Brands rice cooker and select the appropriate setting based on what type of grain you are cooking (usually labeled as “rice” or “grain”). If using an Instant Pot brand model with pressure cooking functionality, make sure to seal and set to high pressure.
Once cooking is complete, allow for natural release for at least 10 minutes before releasing any remaining pressure. Fluff with a fork and serve hot! With these simple steps and your trusty Instant Brands Rice Cooker, you'll be able to make perfect fluffy batches of rice every time!
