    1. I’m not sure…I haven’t tried it in a ninja foodie but it should come out the same in any electric pressure cooker.

    1. For this specific recipe i would not recommend that as you’d end up with far too much liquid in the pot and it may overflow.

      1. I did try that with mine , making a double at same time and it did overflow . So def better to do just as her recipe one at a time .

  1. What grain of rice do you recommend? Short grain, long grain, arborio? Thanks – looks delicious. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

  2. Mine got too thick…not creamy like yours looks like. When the 20 min is up…mine goes to “keep warm”…should I cancel that while it’s doing a natural release?

  3. You know, I don’t think we’ve ever had rice pudding before. We’ll have to try it out. I bet we’ll love it.

  4. That sounds like a great way to make rice pudding. I’ve not made it in ages but we do love it.

  5. Just made your Recipe for rice pudding. It turned out perfectly. We had a sample as soon as it was done and looking forward to the chilled version tonight. Hopefully the sweetness will be a perfect end to our spicy shrimp and grits.

    1. Don’t worry. You don’t have to miss out on making oatmeal or other porridge recipes in your Instant Pot doesn’t have this button. Most recipes use manual (or pressure cooking) in the cooking instructions anyway.

      Double-check the recipe you’re preparing for additional instructions on time and ingredients to help you have a great finished dish. Also, if you are using manual cooking, you will need to figure out your cooking times.
