Water is boiling out of the top during cooking

When we start the cooking process, the water will boil of the steam valve on the top and the rice will be noticeably dryer. This has not happened before but happens every time now. Any ideas??

Suggestion: Pressure cookers depend on good rubber gaskets. These gaskets age over time and if cold water suddenly hits them instead of slowly cooling down. I expect your device is older now, and needs new sealing gaskets and new soft valve. this will prevent the loss of so much steam (WATER) before it's cooked. Contact the place of purchase and ask about new valve and gaskets. If they don't have, they can tell you, or contact the supplier about them. If the suppliers are lost or gone, contact the manufacturer and ask about current local distributors of their gaskets, or ask them if you can buy some from them. You could also confirm with them the cause of the problem.

I need insturctions on using the avon rice cooker for microwave


1. Before cooking, optionally rinse or soak the rice. This is necessary for some types of rice (especially brown rice, which is much harder than white rice), but it improves the flavor and texture of most types. To rinse, put the desired amount of dry rice in a container and fill it up with cold water. Use clean hands to sift the rice in the water. Drain and repeat. To soak, put the desired amount of dry rice in a container and fill it up with cold water. Let stand for 30 minutes, and then drain.
2.Mix rice and water in a microwave-safe container. A good place to start is two parts water for every part of rice (e.g., 2 cups rice to 4 cups water). You can adjust the ratio through experimentation, depending on how dry or moist you prefer your rice, the power of your microwave and the size/shape of the container.
3.Enhance the rice with flavor. Add salt, vegetable oil, olive oil or butter before cooking. A teaspoon of salt/vegetable oil or 1/2 tablespoon of butter should do the trick for each cup of rice.
4. Stir the rice mixture slowly with a wooden spoon. Combine the ingredients thoroughly. This is especially important if you have added other ingredients for flavoring.
5.Cover the rice. Place in the microwave and set the timer. Here are some suggested guidelines for a 700 watt microwave and white rice:

  • 1/2 cup rice, 9 minutes
  • 3/4 cup rice, 12 minutes
  • 1 cup rice, 16 minutes
  • 1 1/4 cups rice, 20 minutes
  • 1 1/2 cups rice, 23 minutes6
6. For brown rice, start with three cups of boiling water per cup of rice and cook it for 25 minutes
7. Let the rice sit in the microwave for five minutes after it turns off. Don't open the door. The steam will complete the cooking process. You might observe that the rice grains start to orient themselves vertically, like they're "saluting".
8. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.



hop you enjoy it

Recieved one as a gift lost instructions how much rice to water


Check this procedure:
* Before cooking, rinse rice in warm water until water becomes clear. Then place the rice in the inner pot with fresh water.
* Take care to use proper water to rice ratios.
* Use a 1:1 ratio of rice to water plus ½ cup of water for white rice and a 1:1 ratio plus ¾ cup of water for brown rice.

TIPS:
# You may wish to tweak the "rice to water ratio" with experience - for example: for larger quantities of rice, you may find a little less or more than one and a half the amount of water results in better rice.
# One cup of dry rice grains cooked in this way is about sufficient to accompany a meal for 2 adults.
# If the rice is a major component of the dish, you might need up to 1 cup of rice per adult.
# Your base measurement doesn't need to be a cup necessarily - the key is to add 1.5x as much water as rice, whatever the quantity.
# It works best to use the original lid of the pot you use, since it will seal best.
# When the rice first boils, it might weep a bit or even lift the lid. Keep watch and an ear out for the start of the boil.
# These times and ratios are for white rice (e.g. Jasmine, Basmati, etc). If you are cooking brown rice you will need around 2C water to 1C rice and double the time.
# Salt is not necessary when cooking rice, but can be added. Unless you add a ridiculous amount of salt it will not significantly change the boiling temperature or time.
# Water boils at a lower temperature at altitude. If you live at a high altitude it will take longer to cook rice using this method.

I hope help with this (remember to rate this answer).

Does steam tray/lid go on top or bottom of rice cooker?


The steam tray as you call it goes on the inside bottom of the cooker. It's purpose is to keep the cooking rice separated from the heating element during the steaming process. The basic measurement is 2 parts water to 1 part rice. Add a quarter cup more water for brown rice. The automatic shut-off won't turn off until the water is gone. It's magic! Cleaning; soak the cook pot and perforated plate to remove rice goo DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL PADS or abrasive cleanser. I use a nylon dish cleaning brush to remove the stuck on brown material.

BOILS OVER


HELLO THERE
I think that you might need to refer to the users manual on the operation of this rice cooker some cookers need to be shut off after a certain time to allow for the steam to cook the rice the rest of the way some may need less water some need more depends on the type of rice that makes a big difference ok?

Need directions for Comet stove top rice cooker


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.
