Where do i add the water

A rice cooker is designed to heat the water to steam, infusing the rice (or vegetables) with moisture, and removing the excess water by evaporation. Your rice cooker may or may not have come with a steam tray (used to keep the items you want to steam out of the water, but still allow them to heat via the steam). It most likely did come with a deep bowl with a non-stick coating. This is where you pour the rice and the water. Make sure to put the lid on and turn it on when all ingredients are inside the nonstick bowl. Place the bowl inside the electric burner (or the cooker). I would add a little bit of oil to the water to improve texture and stickiness.

Rice cooking

This morning I have encountered a great many questions on rice cookers, so I remembered the time when I had one and why I started cooking rice again.
The rice was beautifully cooked in the cooker, but it took up too much space on my kitchen bench. So I turned to pots and the micro.
Cooking rice in a microwave
  • take 1cup water
  • 2 cups rice
  • a pinch of salt
  • put the water, salt and rice together in a bowl with a lid
  • blend well
  • put the lid on the bowl
  • put the bowl into the micro
  • on the micro, keep full force and set the timer on five minutes
  • start the cooking
  • after five minutes open the micro, open the bowl and stir the rice with a fork.put the lid on again keep the micro going for another 10 minutes.
  • repeat the stirring prosess, until the rice is nice and fluffy andready to serve.
Cooking rice in a pot with a lid.
  • take 1cup water
  • 2cups of rice
  • pinch of salt
  • put the ingridience in a pot, and an oven safe pan
  • in the pot, now with a tight lid. Put on a cooker on highest temperature for five minutes.
  • open the pot, stir the rice with a fork.
  • lower heat and cook for another 15-20 minutes,, stirring occasionally.
  • the rice is cooked when fluffy.
Cooking rice in a pan in the oven
  • Put the temperature in the oven on 150 degrees Celsius

Does steam tray/lid go on top or bottom of rice cooker?

The steam tray as you call it goes on the inside bottom of the cooker. It's purpose is to keep the cooking rice separated from the heating element during the steaming process. The basic measurement is 2 parts water to 1 part rice. Add a quarter cup more water for brown rice. The automatic shut-off won't turn off until the water is gone. It's magic! Cleaning; soak the cook pot and perforated plate to remove rice goo DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL PADS or abrasive cleanser. I use a nylon dish cleaning brush to remove the stuck on brown material.

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.
Combined In Rice Bowl Approx. Time
Type of Rice Rice Amount Water
Regular 1/2 cup 1 cup 42 – 45
Parboiled 1 cup 1-1/2 cups 45 – 50
Long Grain and Wild Rice Mix

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

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!

Model FSD201,

Here's some information I came across to give you some idea of how it works.
Easily steam all kinds of food, from veggies and rice to seafood and meats, with this electronic double-decker 8-quart-capacity food steamer. Thanks to its transparent water-level indicator and adjustable 60-minute timer with digital time display and audible timer tones, cooking food according to individual preferences is simple. The unit provides two transparent steaming bowls, a 4-cup rice bowl, and a juice-catching tray. The steamer's middle divider is removable to maximize capacity, while its rapid-steam function provides added timesaving convenience. Other useful features include a simple "on/off" button, "more/less" time control, an "on" indicator light, and easy-grip handles. The two-tiered 8-quart oval food steamer measures 14-1/2 by 10 by 10-1/2 inches.

I hope this gives you some idea of how it works.

Cooking Rice

Ironically, I came to this site with the same questin you posted. I just found my manual. This is how tha manual tells you to steam rice:

Place one of the steamer baskets on the steamer base.

Place 1 cup of rice and 10 ozs of water in the rice bowl.

Place the rice bowl on the steamer basket and cover the steamer.

Set timer for approximately 32 minutes, depending on your taste.

Good luck!

How do I cook rice in my steamer where do I put the water?

there is normally a special rice bowl, which looks like the lid upside down which is used for rice cooking and should be placed at the highest point in the upper steam bowl and place the lid on top. for 1 cup of white regular rice, use 1 1/2 cups of water, steam for 45-50 mins for 1 cup long grain rice use 1 2/3 cups of water, steam for 50-55 mins for 1/2 cup of brown regular rice, use 1 cup water and steam for 42-45mins
