About one-half hour is required to cook a full pot of rice. Test times ranged between 33 and 36 minutes. This applies to both brown rice and white rice.
Measurements are in Chinese quantities, not regular ounces. One American cup is equal to 3/4 Chinese cup.
Rice Cookers may boil over. To avoid this, rinse the rice 3 to 4 times before putting it into the Rice Cooker.
Type of Rice:Cups of Water Ratios:
Oriental/Soft Rice: 2 Cups of Water, 1 Cup of Rice
Basmati/Indian Firm Rice: 1.5 Cups of Water, 1 Cup of Rice
Brown Rice Varieties: 2 Cups & 2 Tablespoons Water, 1 Cup Rice
For best results, do not open the unit immediately after the cooking cycle has completed. The rice should be allowed to settle for several minutes before serving.
Stir the rice thoroughly before serving.
Do not keep rice warm for more than 12 hours.
For softer rice, allow the rice and water to soak in the inner pot for 10 to 20 minutes before cooking.
Do NOT use metal utensils or sharp objects as this will damage the non-stick coating of the inner pot.
Do not warm up the rice again after the unit has been unplugged.
Empty the condensation collector cup after each use.
After rice is cooked, it must be kept in the warm position for 15 minutes.
