Re: steamer/rice cooker

You can put at least 3 glasses of water.(depends on how big your glass is).

its up to your prefernce when you want to put the food. but it much better to put the food when the water starts to boil.

hope this helps!

My rice cooker not cook rice properly leave some waterand un cook rice. What shuld I do steamer is working good.

Are you maybe putting too much water in. usual amount is equal parts water to rice. Except for brown where you need an extra half cup water to each cup of brown rice. Remove the steamer tray, of course when cooking rice.

Where do i add the water

A rice cooker is designed to heat the water to steam, infusing the rice (or vegetables) with moisture, and removing the excess water by evaporation. Your rice cooker may or may not have come with a steam tray (used to keep the items you want to steam out of the water, but still allow them to heat via the steam). It most likely did come with a deep bowl with a non-stick coating. This is where you pour the rice and the water. Make sure to put the lid on and turn it on when all ingredients are inside the nonstick bowl. Place the bowl inside the electric burner (or the cooker). I would add a little bit of oil to the water to improve texture and stickiness.

I just divcovered my Rival Rice and vegetable steamer in my storage area. I loved it and used it quite a bit and can't figure out how it ended up in storage. I'm not sure of the model number - but my...

For white rice, put 2 cups water in the bottom and 2 cups water in the rice dish along with 2 cups rice (also in the rice dish!). Plug it in and when the light goes out, it's ready. Also, one thing to remember is to clean the little well after each use with a bit of vinegar so it doesn't build up hard water deposits (unless you're lucky enough not to have hard water!) It makes a BIG difference in the rice steamer's operation. BTW: each mark on the side of the steamer's base is about 1 cup which equals about 20 minutes of steam time. Hope that helps. -Donna

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.

3 cup ricecooker and steamer

your cooker can only cook about 1 1/2 cups of rice(raw) add 1 cup rice to 1 1/2 ( 1/3 if youlike dryer rice) water , you should have a lever, push down to cook it will pop up when the rice is finished allow about 4 min to let the steaming stop

to steam you need a steamer basket or the fan folding type, it should be about 1/2 inch off the bottom of the cooker add about 1/2 cup water( time will depend on what your steaming)
