*Note: We’re creating this super simple step-by-step Pot-in-Pot guide, so you can easily adapt this method to cooking both main and side dishes in the same pot at the same time. So, have fun & create your own Instant Pot Pot in Pot Meals by adapting the Pot in Pot Rice instructions below! 🙂

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).

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.

Why use the Pot-in-Pot method for cooking Instant Pot Rice?

  • Easier to wash the stainless steel bowl vs. Instant Pot’s inner pot
  • Huge time saver + less kitchenware to wash! when you use this method to cook both main and side dish in the same pot at the same time.

  1. So you about doubled the cooking tome when you doubled the amount of rice. So should I halve the cooking time because, cooking for two, I use half cup of rice…?

    1. Hi Ann,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      You can keep the same cooking time for halving the recipe.

      Please take care & have fun cooking
      Jacky

  2. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
    I have had my IP Duo for 6 months and until tonight I have received the ‘BURN’ notice every time I try to cook rice…..it has been maddening. I tried adding more liquid and it just ended up burnt, crusty and soupy rice. Tonight I adjusted one of my own rice recipes (Chicken and Yellow Rice) using your PIP…….SUCCESS. The dish was a great hit with the family.

  3. Last night, I used stacked pans to cook my rice and green beans. I followed your rice recipe, 7 minutes pressure and 10 minutes natural release. But I could not find a recipe for PIP green beans, so I decided to see what would happen if they went in the second stacked pan. There was nothing in the liner but water.

    Both the rice and the green beans came out fine. The beans were beyond the tender- crisp stage, but still slightly al dente.

    My question is, does it make a difference which food goes in the bottom stacked pan and which goes in the top? And does using the stainless steel lid that comes with the stacked pans make a difference? Could I have slowed down the cooking of the beans if I had put them on top with the pan lid? Would that arrangement affect the rice?

    1. Hi Olivia,

      Thank you so much for your kind words and question on the recipe 🙂

      The pan lid will slow down the cooking of the beans 🙂

      In general, it is better to have the most delicate food on top.

      Please take care & have fun cooking

  4. What measurement utilities do you use for water then the rice? Plus, when using Pyrex, do you double the cooking time for the rice?

    1. Hi Jack & Barbara,

      Thank you for your question 🙂

      We use a standard glass measuring cup. Pyrex bowl is thicker so you will want to add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.
      Make sure the pyrex bowl has no crack or scratches as well.

      Have fun cooking & please take care
      Jacky

  5. General question about the PIP method of cooking: What’s your general rule of thumb when deciding how much time to cook the instant pot for? Do you follow the time for the bottom recipe #1 or the top layer recipe #2? Or something between them? Or some other combination of time? Hope to learn more about this method of cooking!

    1. Hi Michelle,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      You will want to mostly follow the time for the bottom recipe unless the cooking time is shorter than recipe #2.

      Please take care & have fun cooking
      Jacky

  6. I’ve made your PIP Teriyaki Chicken recipe several times—it’s sooo good. Unfortunately I haven’t figured out how to make PIP rice along with other ingredients in the bottom of IP. Do you have any guide to compatible ingredients/recipes for the bottom of the pot? I assume the bottom recipe’s cooking time counts here.

  7. Here’s my tested PIP when cooking Jasmine rice in glassware:
    JASMINE RICE (1:1 water to rice ratio)
    5 minutes (7” glassware)
    8 minutes (5” glassware)
    10 minutes Natural Release

  8. Maybe I missed something. When you do PIP on top of, say, a chicken dish, and the times are different, (ie the chicken stew needs 10 minutes and the rice needs 7 m.), how do you do this?
    Thanks, Alan.

    1. Hi Alan,

      Thank you for your question 🙂

      You will want to follow the longer cooking time. Jasmine rice will hold up quite well at longer cooking time.

      Have fun cooking & please take care
      Jacky

  9. What if you want to do chicken thighs below the rack with PIP rice on top of the rack but they have different cooking times? Do you go with the longer cooking time?
