Good morning to you
Did the rice cooker not have a measuring cup, where the water: rice ratio was given?
My experience has tought me that you cannot go very wrong with two cups of water for one cup of rice.
no matter where the rice is cooked, in a rice cooker, a saucepan, the micro,
try this and as time goes you will get it perfect taking into account the type of rice.
All right, this can be a bit confusing. IF you still have the cup that came with your Rice Cooker, use it to measure your rice. Then, inside the cooker there are lines showing how much water to add based on how many of the Zojirushi measuring cups you used of rice. THAT's simple.
IF you DON'T still have your Rice Maker measuring cup you will have to use a 3/4 cup U.S measuring cup. This equals the same amount as the rice cooker cup. For each 3/4 cup of rice you use, add that many cups of water. If you use 3/4 cups of rice twice, then add water to the 2 line.
In other words, a rice cooker measuring cup equals 3/4 cup of regular U.S measuring cups.
Hope I didn't confuse this too much. I hope this helps and if it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution. Good luck and happy cooking!
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.
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.
The measuring cup for my Rival RC100 holds 6 oz (volume of water to the top rim). The markings on the inside of the pot (1 through 5) seem to hold about 12 oz each. (that is: the 1 line holds 12.2 oz, the 5 line held 57 ounces of water) close enough to the standard 2 to 1 water to rice ratio. I put in about 1.7X as much water (by volume) as brown rice, and it comes out very good for me. (1 cup rice to 1 3/4cup water).
