Recieved one as a gift lost instructions how much rice to water

Check this procedure:
* Before cooking, rinse rice in warm water until water becomes clear. Then place the rice in the inner pot with fresh water.
* Take care to use proper water to rice ratios.
* Use a 1:1 ratio of rice to water plus ½ cup of water for white rice and a 1:1 ratio plus ¾ cup of water for brown rice.

# You may wish to tweak the "rice to water ratio" with experience - for example: for larger quantities of rice, you may find a little less or more than one and a half the amount of water results in better rice.
# One cup of dry rice grains cooked in this way is about sufficient to accompany a meal for 2 adults.
# If the rice is a major component of the dish, you might need up to 1 cup of rice per adult.
# Your base measurement doesn't need to be a cup necessarily - the key is to add 1.5x as much water as rice, whatever the quantity.
# It works best to use the original lid of the pot you use, since it will seal best.
# When the rice first boils, it might weep a bit or even lift the lid. Keep watch and an ear out for the start of the boil.
# These times and ratios are for white rice (e.g. Jasmine, Basmati, etc). If you are cooking brown rice you will need around 2C water to 1C rice and double the time.
# Salt is not necessary when cooking rice, but can be added. Unless you add a ridiculous amount of salt it will not significantly change the boiling temperature or time.
# Water boils at a lower temperature at altitude. If you live at a high altitude it will take longer to cook rice using this method.

I hope help with this (remember to rate this answer).

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 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 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 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 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.

How do I turn it on? I pressed brown rice and it is not cooking.

First you need to power it ON then select/press the brown rice button. if still no lights are on, then you need to call the warranty support number.

Was using rice cooked for sometime. My cooker is not starting to cook whne I press cook button. That is there is no blip and light above cook is not coming. Whereas when I press on warm button, warm button...

In the top cover of your rice cooker there is a sensor that controls the cooking circuit. Most of the t\ime what happens is the wire in the hinge area breaks due to the opening and closing of the lid. I even had to repair my own rice cooker by cutting away the damaged wire then soldering a longer new wire in BOTH wires. I also added shrink tubing over the 4 connections on 2 wires.

The preassure switch may be not working right.
It may be corroded, etc.
Unplug the unit and push it back several times, try to see if the spring is working, etc.

Rice Cooker will not work

On the outside of the rice cooker you should locate a button. Push this down and when rice is cooked, the button should pop up (may or may not ring when finished). Once you see the button pop up (or hear it ring), you should leave the lid on for approx 15 minutes longer to finish steaming.
