Question about Sunbeam Rice Cookers & Steamers

1 Answer

I forgot how to use my Sunbeam 4713/5710 rice cooker

I put 1 cup of rice and two cups of water in the opaque white plastic basket, filled the reservoir with water, put the drip catcher in place with the steam head poking through the hole in the center, put the lower part of the cooker in place, set the basket in place in the cooker with the steam coming out under the bottom of the basket, put the the cover on the cooker and turned the timer on for 60 minutes. Steam came out; however the rice did not cook.

Set up seems fairly obvious. What am I doing wrong or not doing)?

Blessings,

Nelson

Not familiar with this particular model, but most rice cookers use basket for steaming vegies, not rice. Leave basket out and you should get cooked rice!!
Also:Put butter, oil, or margarine in with rice, or spray pan with PAM when dry and empty to avoid sticking problems. Enjoy!

2cup rice with 4 cup water. Why is the water boiling out of the cooker?


Way too much water! Use the same amount of white rice to water and a third of a cup more when using brown rice.

Where can I find the instructions Manual?


To insure long life and satisfactory performance from your Nordic Ware Rice Cooker, follow these simple guidelines (microwave use only).

1. Before using your Rice Cooker wash it thoroughly by hand in warm soapy water or in the dishwasher (top rack only).
2.Foods with strong colors (particularly red sauces, tomatoes) may stain your cookware.Staining that may occur will not affect the use of the cookware.
(Cooking times may vary due to variations in microwave ovens.Adjust cooking times for best results in your oven.)

To Cook Rice:
1. Remove basket.
2. Pour 1 cup of uncooked rice into the bottom of the basket, rinse rice thoroughly with cold water.
3. Transfer the rinsed rice from the basket to the bottom of the cooker.
4. Add 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 tsp salt (salt is optional).
5. Secure lid and lock clamps. Open vent holes.
6. Microwave on medium setting (50%) for 10 - 12 minutes (white rice) or 18-20 (brown rice).
7. Remove from microwave, close vent holes and let stand with the lid fastened for 4-5 minutes (the steam continues to cook the rice.)
8. Remove rice from the cooker and fluff with a fork.
Yields: 3 cups of cooked rice or 4 to 6 servings.

Lost direction on how to use my rice cooker and havn't used it in a while


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.

Need directions for Comet stove top rice cooker


Fill the bottom to the line with water. Put two cups of rice in the top and two cups of water. Put on stove top on high until lower water is boiling, turn to medium heat. For white rice check after about 20 minutes, if water is assorbed and rice is tender, fluff with a fork...eat. If it needs a few more minutes of cooking, no problem.
Brown rice will take about 45 minutes.
I have used my stove top cooker for at least 35 years...ordered it with box top and some money from Comet Rice.

Lost my instruction book...want instructions to make rice in cooker...ratio of rice and water please


I have a Toastmaster 3 cup rice cooker but think the ratio would be the same.
Long grain white rice - 2 rice measuring cups - water to 2 cup line = 8 (1/2 cup) servings
3 rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line = 12 (1/2 cup) servings

Long grain brown rice - 1 1/2 Rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line - 6 (1/2 cup) servings

For fluffy rice: After cooker shuts off, allow rice to stand for approx. 15 minutes, covered, before serving.

Hope this helps

The rice looks like plastic


Try putting one cup of uncooked rice to one cup of water (rather than a cup and a half of water). Also, to keep the rice white longer, you can add a few drops of white vinegar to the rice and water mixture before you turn it on. Hope this helps!
