*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).

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.

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.

Time to cook some Instant Pot Pot in Pot Rice! 🙂

Can I use a fat daddio push bottom cake pan to do PIP? My concern is that it might leak.

Have any of your rice recipes (pot-in-pot or just instant pot) produced fluffy rice? All my attempts have produced nothing but starchy rice (ideal for sushi).

I wanted to thank you for that guide ! It’s really well written and easy to follow and worked perfectly to cook both my Japanese Kare and the rice to go with it. I love this method which save time and energies (both mine and the planet’s). Thanks for the time you gave to us all 🙂5 stars

I just try this rice pot in pot and I think it’s fantastic the way it came out. I tried it once before doing the rice in the liner and it seemed it stick on the bottom and it was kind of hard to scrape it off and that’s why I didn’t try it again but when I read this recipe pot in the pot it came out really good I didn’t have the struggle and it didn’t stick to the bottom it’s sticky but it it’s real good now I have to tell my son all about the new… Read more »

My wife & I really love sticky rice most of the time. There are times we like fluffy rice. How may I adjust this recipe to get fluffy rice?

I saw that it said rinse the rice if you do not want it sticky

Jack McRitchie

I’ve washed the dickens out of the rice & still sticky. I do appreciate the response tho.

Vina Le

Can I use a Tatung rice cooker’s inner pot for this PIP method? Also, do you know how long brown rice would take using PIP? Thank you so much!! Can’t wait to try this and have a whole meal done all at once!

This is a very good idea. But when I tried to do the other way round, I had problem. I tried to cook rice, just as usual, one cup of rice and one cup or water in inner pot. Then I put the trivet in. Then i put a small container of meat on top of the trivet, hoping to “steam” the meat and to cook rice at the same time. I pressed Menu 4 min (the way I used to cook white rice.” Start…..after about 10 min, I saw “burn”. I turned off the IP. Can you tell me… Read more »

You didn’t have enough water in the pot. I cook my rice in a stainless PIP with cover for 4 minutes and a natural relewase. Perfect every time.

CHARLES WALTERS

I found recipe cause cooking rice in instant pot even with WARM disabled made my rice burn on bottom layer rest was fine.

However I am cheap and don’t want to scrap and throw away food cause I cooked improperly…

NO MORE this recipe makes perfect right and no waste

Love me some Amy & Jack !!!5 stars

I tried your method for PIP rice and followed the time and rice to water ratio as described. After 10 NPR, the rice was still al dente or maybe a little crunchy. I put it back on for another 2 minutes pressure and 5 minutes NPR and it was soft and fluffy. The only difference I could possibly see is that my PIP pot was a 3 qt. ceramic Instant Pot liner. Not sure if the ceramic would make a difference or not….but?

Paul Barron

Hi Jacky.
I was using the 6 qt. Duo with my stainless steel liner. The PIP insert is a genuine Instant Pot 3 qt. ceramic pot.
I will try the PIP method for rice again. I usually have good results just using the regular non-PIP method, but I thought I would give it a try.
Thanks.

Jack McRitchie

You’ve specified 1:1 water to rice ratio. If one rinses the rice first it’s difficult to 1:1 water to rice ratio. One can get the correct ratio with the rice by purchasing a scale. Can you recommend a way to adjust the ratio without a scale?
