Steps

  1. I need an operation manual - 170px-p1010161_621.jpg Measure the rice with a cup and put it into your cooking pot. Most of the time, rice cooker boxes will have a cup inside or you can use your own scooper for measurement.

    • One cup of uncooked rice will generate roughly one and a half cups of cooked rice.[1]
    • The measuring cup that comes with your rice cooker is not the same size as a standard US measuring cup (240 ml or 1 cup). It's a cup by rice cooker industry standards (180 ml or about 3/4 cup). Unless the recipe calls specifically for rice cooker cup measurements, you'll need to adjust your measurements accordingly.[2]
  2. Rinse the rice. Read the packaging, as some rice does not need washing and is enriched with iron, niacin, thiamin, and folic acid; rinsing may be unnecessary and will remove any water-soluble vitamins and minerals in the rice.[3] Unless the packaging insists that the rice does not need rinsing, however, it is safer and more hygienic to rinse it to remove any pesticides, herbicides, or contaminants that may be present.

    • 170px-p1010162_330.jpg Run tap water in the bowl. While the water is running, stir the rice. Continue stirring until the pot is full of water.
    • 170px-p1010163_65.jpg Tip the pot at an angle and drain the excess water out. Hold the bottom part with your hand so that you can grab any rice grains that may fall with the water.
    • Repeat until the water comes out clear.
    • Drain as much water as you can.
  3. Soak the rice for thirty minutes, if desired. This is not required, but some people prefer it. It may result in stickier rice.
  4. Measure the water. Most rice cooker instructions recommend cold water.[4] How much water you add depends on what kind of rice you're cooking and how moist you prefer it. One rule of thumb is to fill the cooking pot with the same amount of cups of rice you used, with an additional 1/2 cup. For example, if you made 2 cups of rice, pour in 2 1/2 cups of water. There are also graduated marks on the inside of many rice cookers indicating how much rice and water should be added. The USA Rice Federation[3] recommends following the directions on the package that the rice came in, or using these guidelines in a pinch:

    • White, long grain - 1 3/4 cups of water per 1 cup of rice
    • White, medium grain - 1 1/2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice
    • White, short grain - 1 1/2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice
    • Brown, long grain - 2 1/4 cups of water per 1 cup of rice
    • Parboiled - 2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice
    • Still, you can't really go wrong if you just add two or 2.5 cups of water to each cup of rice; you don't want your rice too dry.
    • For Indian style rices like Basmati or Jasmine, less water is needed as a drier rice is desired, use no more than 1 1/2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice. Use only 1 to 1 if you washed the rice previously. It is ok to add bay leaves or cardimom pods directly to the rice cooker to enhance the flavor.
  5. Add a little bit of salt, butter or oil at this time, if desired.
  6. Try to get any rice grains around the pot back into the water and level out the rice. Wipe the outside of the pot with a cloth or rag.
  7. 170px-p1010165_731.jpg Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover it, plug the cooker in, and press the switch to turn it in. The switch will click, like a toaster, when the rice is done. In some cookers, the rice will be warmed until you unplug the cooker.

    • Don't lift the lid to check on the rice. The cooking process depends on the development of steam inside the pot, so letting steam escape by opening the lid may result in improperly cooked rice.
    • The rice cooker automatically turns off when the temperature inside the pot exceeds waters boiling point (212 degrees F or 100 degrees C at sea level), which will not happens until all the free water has vaporized.[5]
  8. Allow the rice to "rest" for 10-15 minutes before removing the lid. This is not required but is commonly recommended in rice cooker instructions, and is automatic in some models.[4] Unplugging the rice cooker or taking the pot off of the heat for this period will minimize the amount of rice that sticks to the pot.

    A study was made of factors affecting cooking time and the relationship
    between water:rice ratio (water content) in the rice cooker method and
    Instron hardness of cooked rice using 10 milled rice samples of diverse
    properties.
    Water:rice ratio for acceptable soft texture (< 10 kg
    hardness) increased with increasing amylose content of the sample from
    1.1 (56% water in cooked rice, wet basis) to 1.9 (68% water).
    The
    spread in cooked-rice hardness values was higher at a water:rice ratio
    of 1.9 (68% water) than at 2.65 (75% water), which was equivalent to
    the water content of rice cooked in excess water for an optimum cooking
    time.
    Cooking time correlated better with starch final gelatinization
    temperature (r=0.75*) than with surface area per gram (r=−0.49)
    confirming the results of earlier kinetic studies that cooking rate was
    mainly influenced by the reactivity of the grain constituents with
    water.

Rice cooker KS-P104


hi!

that may be a hard thing to do since you have a japanese manual.\

you can always use the 1:1 ratio for cooking rice though.

1 cup white rice = 1 cup water.

1 cup brown rice = 2 cups water


hope this helps!
