I am wanting to not need to turn off the rice cooker manualy. I am wondering if there is a way to shorten the cooking time so that I am not burning my rice on the bottom. I have noticed that other people are wanting to know how to have it cook longer too. How do you adjust the time it takes before the rice cooker turns off?
You need to make sure you have enough water in there. When the rice is cooking, it is sucking up all that water so it can cook and expand. If you don't put enough water in the rice cooker, the rice will use up all the water and then if there is no water left, it will start burning the bottom of the rice because there is no more water.

4 years later... I'm pretty sure it has to do with liquid in the slow cooker (maybe relating to temperature also so it doesn't overheat/burn your meal?). I just threw in some short ribs and a thick (and somewhat scant for the cooker's capacity) bbq sauce. It started beeping and beeping and beeping at fairly frequent intervals. I added about a cup of hot water and the beeping stopped.
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.
The Manual for the Rival RCS200 Rice Cooker can be found here: http://www.rivalproducts.com/manuals/MANUALS/RCS200_43_68557881.PDF Make sure you are following the directions for the correct amount of water to rice. It could be that your unit is not switching from cooking to warming at completion of the cooking cycle. It should automaticaly turn to the Keep Warm Setting when it detects a temperature of 212 degrees F. The manual advises that there are no servicable parts. If this is a new appliance I would recommend returning it to the point of purchase. If this is not possible try contacting Rival Customer Service to see if they are willing to assist with replacement or repair: See here:
Fill the bottom to the line with water. Put two cups of rice in the top and two cups of water. Put on stove top on high until lower water is boiling, turn to medium heat. For white rice check after about 20 minutes, if water is assorbed and rice is tender, fluff with a fork...eat. If it needs a few more minutes of cooking, no problem.
Brown rice will take about 45 minutes.
I have used my stove top cooker for at least 35 years...ordered it with box top and some money from Comet Rice.
Your cooker, along with mine, cooks very hot. If it is new then you can take it back, but if you want to cook with it then you need to stir the rice often. About every 5 minutes should be good. As soon as it is done you need to remove it from the cooker.
Let's see how that works.
