What is Instant Pot Pot-in-Pot (PIP)?

The Pot-in-Pot (PIP) method is a one-of-a-kind “One Pot Meal”! 🙂

Instead of cooking all the ingredients directly in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker‘s Inner Pot, you can stack separate layers of food, then cook them all in the same Instant Pot at the same time.

For example, you can put the chicken in the bottom layer, and rice in a separate bowl stacked above. Then cooked both the protein + rice in the same Instant Pot at the same time (as shown in below photo).

We gotta thank our lovely grandparents for teaching us this convenient trick! 😀

How to use Pot in Pot?

  1. Place Recipe #1’s ingredients in Instant Pot’s Inner Pot
  2. Add Steamer Rack/Trivet in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker
  3. Place Recipe #2’s ingredients in an oven-safe container (stainless steel works best) on the rack in Instant Pot
  4. Close lid and pressure cook

This will separate Recipe #2 from Recipe #1’s liquid and/or ingredients that are directly in the inner pot.

Pot in Pot Rice Ingredients

*Pro Tip: We are using Jasmine rice here. You can also season with some salt to increase the flavor.

*Note: 1 cup of Jasmine rice is roughly 220g – 230g.

1

Optional Step: Rinse Jasmine Rice


We like to rinse our rice, but we know that some users don’t like to rinse their rice.

In a stainless steel bowl, rinse 1 cup (220g) Jasmine rice under cold tap water until clear. Drain really really well.

Pour 1 cup (250ml) cold water in the stainless steel bowl.

*Pro Tip: Ensure all the rice are fully submerged in the liquid.

Pressure Cooking Method:

  • 1 cup of Jasmine Rice: Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 7 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release.
  • 2 cups of Jasmine Rice: Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 15 minutes + 10 minutes Natural Release.

*Pro Tip: A stainless steel bowl is highly recommended. If you are using a pyrex glass bowl or thicker containers, you will need to increase the pressure cooking time accordingly. It may take a few trial and error to find the perfect cooking time.
