Question about Rival Automatic Steamer/Rice Cooker 4450 GW

2 Answers

Heating on the 4450 goes off

I just gotten the steamer today used from a friend. I tried to use it and followed the simpled instructions. It comes on alright but once the water starts to boil the steamer shots of and does nothing.

Since it is a used steamer could it be that the heat well is blocked with mineral resedue. Does anybody know if there is a outlet for Rival in Europe.

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.

. goth_maiden, I have the same problem. Unit was my bf's and he never cleans anything so I can imagine the buildup. I can't make rice in a normal pot without it getting sticky or mushy so I wanted to try this steamer. I was trying to make rice and the unit shuts off after 1 minute - it would than go back on again but I had to either reset by pulling out plug (sometimes even that didn't work) or just remove the lid and move the unit around a bit. I am going to try the vinegar soaking method you mentioned and see if it fixes it. I don't know what the original color of the heating well is supposed to be but it now now it is like a light grey color. I will post again if this works. DId it work for you? Thanks!

Need replacement thermal overload protector


Check the Radio Shack website. Match the temperature rating of the thermal fuse.

These can't be soldered in -- the heat will blow them -- they are best crimped in.

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.
