my name is Helmut from Germany and I have a question regarding the Instant Pot 6qt and Instant Pot Mini please.
Is it possible to make very super soft, well cooked white rice with soft and or fluffy grains, that doesnt become mushy or watery and that doesn´t stick to the bottom of the instant pot?
I have enteric neuropathy and a severe dysmotility in the small intestine, therefore severe chronic bowel and gut issues and I can only eat very soft white rice and liquid „foods“, shakes, smoothies etc.
I appreciate every tipp or suggestion or a review if the instant pot is a helpful tool for cooking soft rice without „texture“ in bulk, because I eat a lot of rice every day and I´m tired to make the rice on the stove top. In the past I’ve tried a few rice cookers with the simple cook/warm Settings but the rice always stick to the bottom or becomes dry etc, that’s why I’m thinking about buying an instant pot.
I also appreciate recommendations or suggestions for other cooking methods, pressure cookers, rice cookers etc.
Thank you very much for all your help. I really appreciate this
Welcome Helmut! I don't have an answer. We have used our Instant Pot for rice, but I wouldn't say it was 'soft.' I suppose you could just set it on manual and cook it long time and that would soften it. You can always set the appliance to go as long as you wish, which should soften pretty much anything. You could always try different rices, too. Good luck.
(PS: I used to work at Intel on a co-project with Siemens--which meant, lots of people from Germany came here to Oregon and worked at Intel with us for several years. I so miss many of my German friends.)

I thought I responded to this before but post didn't make it.
I dont make white rice, only brown. my IP has a button for rice and another for brown rice. no luck with the IP. it does not get soft enough. I tinkered with time and water. still crunchy rice or it scorches and sets off an alarm. stovetop is much easier even though it's about 45 min for brown rice. white rice doesn't take long on the stove. I would stick with that. I've never used a rice cooker. I never had issues with cooking rice so why get a special appliance?
I use a decent 3quart heavier sauce pan with a lid. thin pans scorch on the bottom, and make a cup of brown rice at a time.
