Question about Oster 3072 20-Cup Rice Cooker

Digital oster 20 cup capacity rice cooker wont turn on

I turned on the rice cooker, it cooked the rice until it was almost done, then the digital panel turned off. Now, I can't turn it on. The on/off button doesn't trigger the digital panel to turn on. Usually a double zero will appear showing that it is ready to start cooking. I've checked the power sorce and everything is connected.

    The rice cooker panel light turned off during cooking even though there was some water in the unit. For some reason, the unit has not been operative since this happened.

    the problem is that the thermal fuse is open. It remained open after the last operation therefore is defective. This then will not provide the hot 120vac to the unit. This is inline with the voltage that will source power to your front panel. the thermal fuse is a microtemp fuse STFAQF 64a01.

    Hope this helps.

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.

How to used to cook white rice?


Hi
my rule for cooking rice is 1 part rice: 2 parts water big pinch of salt. This can we'll be done in the micro. Set it for 10 minutes, open the door and wander how the rice is doing. Take a fork. Put into the rice and find out how cooked it is. You will probably need another 10-15 minutes. Depends on the micro.
With a rice cooker it is much more accurate. Look inside the inner pot ,on the one side there could be numbers for cups of rice and on the other side for cups of water.

Need directions on how make rice on my oster rice cooker


There are many types of rice. Follow specific directions for variety used.
2. Accurately measure rice and water then combine in rice bowl.
Pour specified amount of water in water reservoir. Cover and steam.
3. For softer rice, increase by 1 – 2 tablespoons the water mixed with rice
by the specified amount of water on the chart. For firmer rice decrease
water mixed with rice by the same amount.
4. Check doneness and consistency of rice at minimum time specified
for each type, stirring rice at the same time.
5. When checking/stirring rice, be careful not to drip the condensate into the
rice bowl which would reduce the quality and flavor of the steamed rice.
6. Use only clean water in water reservoir
7. Rice may be seasoned with salt, pepper or butter after steaming.

Rice burning at bottom of cooker


Your cooker, along with mine, cooks very hot. If it is new then you can take it back, but if you want to cook with it then you need to stir the rice often. About every 5 minutes should be good. As soon as it is done you need to remove it from the cooker. Let's see how that works.
