Rice burning at bottom of cooker

My rice keeps burning or atleast turning brown when I cook. 2 Cups of white rice (med grain) with 3 cups of water. Seems easy enough, put it in, plug in the cooker, push the button, a little while later...Perfect rice...except for the perfect part. I thought the rice cooker would take out the guess work. Is there anyway for me to adjust the cooker so it doesn't burn the bottom of my rice?

I also have this problem and I fixed it by adding in a little more water and by removing the power cord from the outlet immediately after the cooker finishes it's cycle. Not ideal, but it does save my rice.

Re: Rice burning at bottom of cooker

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.

2cup rice with 4 cup water. Why is the water boiling out of the cooker?

Way too much water! Use the same amount of white rice to water and a third of a cup more when using brown rice.

Lost direction on how to use my rice cooker and havn't used it in a while

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.

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

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

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
