I use a little more than a 2 to 1 ratio when cooking rice. 2 parts water to 1 part rice you will have to experiment a little and adjust as necessary.

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 cup...one 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 down...so 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 longer...like 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 mode....it 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.

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.

TIPS:
# 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).

Rice Measurements


You use one cup of water for each cup of uncooked rice. You end up with about 2 cups of cooked rice for every cup of uncooked rice. Different varieties, such as brown rice, take more water, up to 2 cups of water per cup of uncooked rice. If the resulting rice is too dry, you can add more water and restart the cooker.

I am not sure, but I believe that 16 cups refers to cooked rice, so you should not put more than 8 cups of uncooked rice in the cooker.

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

Amount of Rice


The Japanese measuring cup size of 200 ml works fine for my Hitachi RD-5083 and likely will work for most rice cookers. The standard US cup is 237 ml.

How do I use the salton ra10 rice cooker.


It came with a small plastic measuring cup. The ratio for that is 1 cup rice to 1 cup water (using the measuring cup for both items). Measure out your rice first, BUT for best results you need to rinse your rice several times (I do three times or until the water is fairly clear). Place rinsed rice in cooker and add equal amout of water . You can also add in your butter and salt at this time if you wish. put lid on cooker,plug it in and push the little lever down (it'll click). It will cook for about 20 minutes and the lever will pop up on its own. Don't do anything yet! you need to wait about 10-15 minutes more, or at least until the steam stops before you open the lid. The rice should be cooked perfectly.
There will (with this model) be a light brown crust on the bottom of the pan, butthe instruction manual said that it was a normal occurance (but it is a buggar to get that off-soaking for a couple hours helps).
I really like using rice cookers because they do a great job in cooking the rice. I hope this clarified how to use this model.
