Rice cooking

This morning I have encountered a great many questions on rice cookers, so I remembered the time when I had one and why I started cooking rice again.
The rice was beautifully cooked in the cooker, but it took up too much space on my kitchen bench. So I turned to pots and the micro.

  • take 1cup water
  • 2 cups rice
  • a pinch of salt
  • put the water, salt and rice together in a bowl with a lid
  • blend well
  • put the lid on the bowl
  • put the bowl into the micro
  • on the micro, keep full force and set the timer on five minutes
  • start the cooking
  • after five minutes open the micro, open the bowl and stir the rice with a fork.put the lid on again keep the micro going for another 10 minutes.
  • repeat the stirring prosess, until the rice is nice and fluffy andready to serve.

Is a pressure cooker any good for cooking pulses and rice etc?


Yes - I think it's a great way to cut down on the time needed for cooking. I particularly love using my pressure cooker for beans which I soak over night and then they only take 20 minutes in the pressure cooker. It's also great for rices like brown rice that take 40 minutes when boiling - it cuts the cooking time by half.

need basic directions


Hi,
There is a cup that comes with it that equals about 2/3 of a regular measuring cup...one of these or 2/3 cup for every cooked cup that you want to end up with...
The water...
There are lines on most of the cookers with numbers that represent the number of cups you are cooking...fill with water to that line....
If you are not sure, just fill with water a bit over the top of the rice...the amount is not that critical as the cooker senses when the water is cooked off and then shuts down...so a bit more will only make the cooking time a bit longer... no biggee...
Also it is best to rinse your rice before you actually leave the water in the pot that you are going to cook with...
remeber also if you have a brown rice setting that the cooking times are MUCH longer...like up to 90 minutes, so get it started in plenty of time or you will be eating rice for a snack before bed...

These things are really goof proof and make great rice very easily...

digital oster 20 cup capacity rice cooker wont turn on


Rice cookers will only cook if you have enough water in it. If all the water has cooked out, then the cooker will turn off. Remember when you put your rice in the cooker, make sure you level it off. Then add twice as much water so that it will over cover the rice.
