My Oster 4715 rice cooker collection cup is not catching steam/water but instead lots of bubbling water and steam coming from top vent. What is causing this? Is the inner lid installed correctly?

To insure long life and satisfactory performance from your Nordic Ware Rice Cooker, follow these simple guidelines (microwave use only).

1. Before using your Rice Cooker wash it thoroughly by hand in warm soapy water or in the dishwasher (top rack only).
2.Foods with strong colors (particularly red sauces, tomatoes) may stain your cookware.Staining that may occur will not affect the use of the cookware.
(Cooking times may vary due to variations in microwave ovens.Adjust cooking times for best results in your oven.)

To Cook Rice:
1. Remove basket.
2. Pour 1 cup of uncooked rice into the bottom of the basket, rinse rice thoroughly with cold water.
3. Transfer the rinsed rice from the basket to the bottom of the cooker.
4. Add 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 tsp salt (salt is optional).
5. Secure lid and lock clamps. Open vent holes.
6. Microwave on medium setting (50%) for 10 - 12 minutes (white rice) or 18-20 (brown rice).
7. Remove from microwave, close vent holes and let stand with the lid fastened for 4-5 minutes (the steam continues to cook the rice.)
8. Remove rice from the cooker and fluff with a fork.
Yields: 3 cups of cooked rice or 4 to 6 servings.

Cooking Potatoes and Vegetables:
1. Insert Basket.
2.Pour one cup of water plus 1/4 tsp. salt into the bottom of the cooker.
3. Peel vegetables (if desired), cut into evenly sized pieces and place inside basket.
4. Secure lid and lock clamps. Close vent holes.
5. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes.
6. Remove from microwave and let stand with lid fastened for 3-4 minutes (the steam continues to cook the vegetables.)

Cooking Pasta:
1. Remove basket and lid (lid not used initially for preparing pasta inside the microwave).
2. Pour 2 cups (5 oz.) of uncooked noodles into the bottom of the cooker.
3. Add 2 1/2 cups water.
4. Microwave on high setting 10 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes.
5. Remove from microwave, stir noodles, secure lid and lock clamps. Close vent holes. Let stand for 3-4 minutes.

HELPFUL HINTS TO ENHANCE THE FLAVOR OF ANY MICROWAVE DISH:

2. Add a little butter or oil to contents.

The rice dries out in the "keep warm" mode


You have a strange problem. I use my rice cooker often and the only thing that I can think of that may be casing your problem is if the steam vent is clogged. A clogged vent would cause the steam to condense and run to the bottom.

With the machine empty of food, you could try pouring hot water through the vent to see if this clears any clogs. If it does not, it could be other problems that I can tell you will cost more money to fix than to replace with a new Rice cooker.

Good Luck.

There is a brown film on the bottom of rice after cooking. Only the rice on the surface can be eaten. Why?


Either not enough water in the pot or heat is too high. Try lower heat setting first... if that does not do it, try adding a bit more water.

Water spewing from steam vent whenever I cook rice and I have measured accurately. It is a mess!


I found a solution to the spewing around the lid and through the vent.

The other day I placed the steamer tray in the top and then the lid.

The steamer "broke up" the bubbles -- no spewing out of the pot or mess -- I mostly happened with brown rice -- but the last 2 times -- not mess!!!!! Hope this helps someone else.

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.
