Tip & How-To about Black & Decker RC400 7-Cup Rice Cooker

How much Rice and Water go in the Cooker

So you lost the instructions to your rice cooker and now you want to know how much rice and water you need in there…
He is what I have found out with using my cooker to prepare rice.

There is a cup that comes with your rice cooker that equals about 2/3 of a regular measuring cup...one of these or 2/3 cup for every cooked cup of rice that you want to end up with... Add as many 2/3 cup fulls of rice as the number of full cups or servings that you want to end up with. See my notes about washing the rice further down in this tip.

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 or wild 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...


The best feature is that you just have to place the rice and water in the unit, press the button for the type of rice you are using and forget about it itll it goes through the cycle and shuts down, going into the hold warm mode....it is so easy!!


These things are really goof proof, and make great rice very easily...a little bit of experimentation and you will enjoy very much using your rice cooker.
