Steamer keeps shutting off.

My steamer works for about 2 minutes and then shuts off. I tried different water levels-makes no difference. Tried without removable ring-no difference. Tried different time settings- no difference. Please help!

    I have the exact same problem and I tried all what's been tried by this user with no success. Any suggestion?

    Same problem. Tried different water levels, more/less time. Still no luck!

    It seems to run for a max. of 40 minutes and then shuts off. I then cannot get it to run after that for more than 2 minutes either. I've ruined dinner already cause it won't start again. I'll try the cold water thing .

I have the same issue, but if I use cold water (15 C, 60 F), the steamer works. Hope this help.

    I have this steamer and found that if you clean the heating post in the center some times it gets covered with scale. Remove this scale with a knife and the unit doesen't over heat and keeps working fine. Works for me .......

I just divcovered my Rival Rice and vegetable steamer in my storage area. I loved it and used it quite a bit and can't figure out how it ended up in storage. I'm not sure of the model number - but my...


For white rice, put 2 cups water in the bottom and 2 cups water in the rice dish along with 2 cups rice (also in the rice dish!). Plug it in and when the light goes out, it's ready. Also, one thing to remember is to clean the little well after each use with a bit of vinegar so it doesn't build up hard water deposits (unless you're lucky enough not to have hard water!) It makes a BIG difference in the rice steamer's operation. BTW: each mark on the side of the steamer's base is about 1 cup which equals about 20 minutes of steam time. Hope that helps. -Donna

Heating on the 4450 goes off


After posting the problem I remebered that my mother used to use vinegar to desolve mineral resedeu from water containers and coffee machines. So I filled the heater well with some vinegar aqnd let it sit over night and it desolved the resedue. Under all that grit was actually metal and on a trial run the machine worked fine. So I'm pretty sure the problem is solved.

Would you return this PS200 steamer?


If the steamer starts making a "gurgling" noise, like its running out of steam, hold the hose straight up for several seconds. It says to do this in the manual and gets the steam flowing again--works great!

Rival automatic steamer rice cooker 4450 guide needed


Here's all the info I've been able to find:

The older Rival rice cooker steamer should have a base, a lid, steamer basket, and rice bowl.

To cook rice, fill center basin of base with water. Place the rice bowl on basin. Add rice and water as follows. For white rice add water in a 1:1 ratio to rice plus 1/2 cup. For brown rice add water in a 1:1 ratio to rice plus 3/4 cup. Examples: 1 cup white rice, 1-1/2 cup water; 2 cups brown rice, 2-3/4 cups water. Put lid on and plug in and in about 50 minutes you should have delicious rice.

Timing is Everything
Whether using the Rival Steamer for a main dish or for a side dish, cooking is easy. But not Fast. Rice and steamed vegetables actually take twice as long to cook in this steamer. The simplicity comes since you add your rice or vegetables in one step. No waiting for one thing to happen before you can do the next. Put water and fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry or rice in the basket or bowl that come with the unit, cover, plug in and wait for the light to go off per the timing chart.
1/4 cup water takes 6 -7 minutes
1/2 cup water takes 10-12 minutes
3/4 cup water takes 16-17 minutes
1 cup water takes 19-22 minutes
1.25 cups water takes 24-26 minutes
1.5 cups water takes 26-30 minutes
2 cups water takes 38-39 minutes
2.5 cups water takes 43-44 minutes
3 cups water (max fill) takes 45-50 minutes.

Steamed Chocolate Pudding (From the Rival Steamer Guide)
3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1.5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped nuts
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Cream butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beat well. Add egg and melted chocolate; blend well. Add milk alternately with dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Fold nuts into batter. Pour into greased 8"x4" loaf pan. Cover pan with aluminum foil. Place pan in steamer basket. Cover and steam until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Serve warm with **Marshmallow Cream Sauce. Water: 1 cup. Time: 19-22 min.

**Marshmallow Cream Sauce:
16 large marshmallows
1/3 cup cream
In a small saucepan, combine ingredients and melt over low heat. Serve over Steamed Chocolate Pudding.
