Program Functions
Cooking Program Functions
The “Multigrain” key is another smart program to cook multigrain rice, such as wild rice and brown rice.
This program first soaks the grains in 60°C/140°F for 50 minutes before cooking. For 2 cups of multigrain,
it takes about 64 minutes. For 2~5 cups, it’d take about 78 minutes. If you want to cook even harder
grains, such dry split corn, it’s recommended to use the “Manual” key and set a pressure cooking time
between 40~60 minutes. Total cooking time is not displayed, whereas the pressure keeping time will be
shown when working pressure is reached. The “Adjust” key has no effect on this program.
The Instant Pot® programmable cooker uses a large and user-friendly control panel. The
convenient built-in program functions allow you to cook your favorite food with a press
of a program function key. Instant Pot® IP-CSG60 includes 8 programs: Soup, Congee,
Meat/Stew, Bean/Chili, Rice, Multigrain, Steam and Slow Cook.
Soup Key
The “Steam” key is designed for steaming purposes. You can steam vegetables, reheating with the
enclosed steam rack. When steam vegetables, please note that leaving the food in the cooker for natural
cooling down will likely over cook the food. You will need to release the steam and take the food out as
soon as cooking is finished. 1~2 cups of water are sufficient for steaming fresh or frozen vegetable with
1~2 minute pressure keeping time. The “Adjust” key has no effect on this program. Please use “+” or “-“
keys to change the steaming time.
The “Slow Cook” key simulates the slow cooker cooking. It’s equivalent to the low heating mode in a
common slow cooker at 88-93°C (190-200°F). You can change the cooking duration with “+” or “-“ keys
between 1 and 10 hours. The “Adjust” key has no effect on this program. This is the only program that
requires the steam release being set to the open position.

Timer Key
The “Keep Warm/Cancel” key serves two functions. When any program is in effect, press this key will
cancel that program. When other program finishes cooking, Instant Pot automatically switch to
keep-warm state at 62~74°C (145°F-165°F) for up to 8 hours. When the pot is not in cooking mode,
pressing this key would also make the pot entering keep-warm state. This is the only key which can be
activated with or without the lid being fully closed. When Keep-Warm function is activated, the display
will show “0H”, “1H”, … “8H” to count the number of hours in this state.
Instant Pot has a safety feature to disable all cooking program keys if the lid is not fully closed. The “Keep
Warm/Cancel” key is the only exception. Please close the lid fully before using the following program
function keys. An estimated total cooking time is shown when the “Soup”, “Congee”, “Meat/Stew” and
“Bean/Chili” program is chosen.
The “Manual” key allows manual setting of cooking time. Please note that the time set in this mode is
pressure keeping time which will count down when working pressure is reached. The maximum pressure
keeping time is 60minutes.
The “Soup” key is for making various soup and broth. You can use the “Adjust” key to select a shorter or
longer cooking duration, depending on the intended cooking result. Instant Pot controls the pressure
and temperature to a level that the liquid never goes into the heavy boiling state. For example, making
chicken broth with the "Soup" function, the broth is clear and the chicken remains intact after cooking. If
you need the content to be fully broken down, please stir and mix the soup before serving.
The “Timer” key is for delayed cooking. To start delayed cooking, first select the desired cooking function
(all program function except the “Slow Cook”), and then press the “Timer” key. The time displayed is the
number of hours from now to ready-to-serve state,. i.e. the cooker is cooled and the lid can be opened.
The time is not delayed starting time or hour. If you set the delay timer to 8 hours at 9 am, the food will
be ready at 5 pm, 8 hours later. “Timer” starts with 2 hours and can be adjusted with “+” or “-“ key up to
24 hours. Please note that if 2 hours is selected, some program, e.g., “Multigrain” may start right away to
ensure that the food will be cooked and ready-to-serve in 2 hours.
The “Congee” key is to make porridge and congee of various grains. You can use the “Adjust” key to
select a cooking duration. The “Normal” duration is for rice congee. If you use multigrain, please choose
the “Longer” duration. Stir the congee before serving. Please note, after the “Congee” program is finished,
do NOT put steam release in venting position; otherwise the congee would spill through the steam
release. Please wait for the pot to cool down naturally before opening the lid.
The “Adjust” key is to change the cooking mode in “Soup”, “Congee”, “Meat/Stew” and “Bean/Chili”
programs. It does not affect other programs.
The “Meat/Stew” key is for cooking meat and stew. The “Adjust” key can be used to change the cooking
time to achieve the best effect. In general, “Longer” duration is for bone-stripping effect on meat.
The “Bean/Chili” key is specifically for cooking beans and making Chili. If you want the beans well
cooked, please use the “Adjust” key to select “Longer” duration.
The “Rice” key is a fully automated smart program for cooking regular rice. The cooking duration is
adjusted automatically depending on the amount of food content. To cook 2 cups of rice, it takes about
14 minutes (6 minute pressure keeping time); for 3~5 cups of rice, it takes about 28 minutes (10 minute
pressure keeping time); more cups will take longer time accordingly. Total cooking time is not displayed,
whereas the pressure keeping time will be shown when working pressure is reached.The “Adjust” key has
no effect on this program.
