Question about Zojirushi NS-PC10 5-Cup Rice Cooker

1 Answer

Mushy after less then 24 hours

My rice cooker makes great rice but after less then 24 hours, half the rice is dried out and the other half is extremely mushy and both are inedible. My rice cooker/warmer is still relatively new though, only about 40 days. What should I do, I thought rice cooker's/warmers that are seeled shut are supposed to keep rice fresh for at least a couple days.

    I bought the same brand but the ten cup cooker and I always ended up with smelly mushy rice in about the same time frame. I have purchased 2 other brands since then and I am stumped as to what to do to resolve this problem. I am getting very frustrated with this rice warmer problem because I end up wasting a lot of rice.

It's not meant to keep in there for a few days. A few hours would be the max, say for a party for instance. When you are done with the rice, take it out and put it in your refridgerator.

Burned rice : - 1 cup of rice added 2.5 cups water, glutinous rice setting done in about 18 min. 4 hours later its all brown and in 1 solid block rock solid.


When the rice first gets done, leave it on warm for a few then unplug it. Whatever you don't eat right away put in the fridge for later.

I have a problem with Easy Meals Jasmine Rice. It is inedible & they want me to pay for the return postage.


Not sure if you are cooking this in a rice cooker or not but you can only use normal rice in a cooker not easy cook or fast cook of any kind.

Is a pressure cooker any good for cooking pulses and rice etc?


Yes - I think it's a great way to cut down on the time needed for cooking. I particularly love using my pressure cooker for beans which I soak over night and then they only take 20 minutes in the pressure cooker. It's also great for rices like brown rice that take 40 minutes when boiling - it cuts the cooking time by half.

I would like recipes for how to make my rice in this rice cooker


What do you mean by recipes?

What works best for me is to wash the rice until the water runs clear, constantly agitating it. Then let it set for an hour undisturbed. Add water - one knuckle joint (a little over an incy) above the rice level. Plug the rice cooker in and press the start lever down. And let it do its thing.

If you have left over rice, add about one cup of water a day to keep it from drying out.

Rice is mushy, I have cut the water down by one cup and it is still mushy. 2 cups rice 4 cups water down to 3 cups water


If you are using regular rice, it is 1 cup of rice for 2 cups of water. Bring the combo to a hard boil and then reduce the heat to a slow simmer for 20min, stirring ocassionally.
If you are using "Minute Rice", it is 1cup of water to 1cup of rice. Bring the water to a hard boil, turn off the heat and add the rice. Cover for 5min. Fluff with a fork.

Rice cooker vs a crocpot/slow cooker


I have both and use both for different things. The rice cooker cooks faster than the slow cooker. What the Crockpot does really well, the rice cooker cannot do. For example, with the crock pot, you can buy less expensive cuts of meat and because of the slow cook method, they will be tender, juicy, and delicious. You can make soups, stews and casseroles in a crock pot and the great thing is that you can turn it on low, go to work, and when you come home, dinner is done. You can cook the same types of things in a rice cooker but you can't leave it all day. You CAN saute', fry, etc,. in your rice cooker which you can't do in a crock pot but for dense veggies and tougher cuts of meat, stew beef for example, there's no comparison. I have an Oster Rice Cooker and Steamer which I use nearly every day. I cook rice, obviously, casseroles, veggies, spaghetti and meatballs, all kinds of side dishes and soups in it. I use the crockpot several times a week but more often in the Fall and Winter when I make soups, stews, chilis, roasts and BBQ. Oh my gosh, you have to try BBQ Ribs in the crock pot! They melt in your mouth. Go to Yahoo! Groups. You'll find all kinds of great info for both your rice cooker and crock pot. I have one of the fancier, more expensive crock pots because I take it to work with me one day a week for lunch. The lid seals and it comes with a carrier. If you do most of your cooking at home, you can spend a little less and get a good one. I recommend getting one that has at least 3 heat settings though. Different foods require different temps. Happy Cooking!
