How do I cook brown rice?

It says that brown rice needs to cook for twice as long as white rice (about 50 minutes).  Does that mean that when it turns from "cook" to "warm" the first time, that I should go push the "cook" button again?  When I tried to cook it, it seemed like there wasn't enough water in order to cook the rice all the way through...the rice was still hard.  Is there a different water-to-rice ratio for brown rice?

2cup rice with 4 cup water. Why is the water boiling out of the cooker?

Way too much water! Use the same amount of white rice to water and a third of a cup more when using brown rice.

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

Info needed on rice cooker Bravett model MC665H, how rice can go into pot, what type of rice, and how long to cook

A cup of rice is equivalent to two person, depends how a person consumes the rice.
First wash the rice by rinsing it two times( using the pot itself ) with fresh water, add water till it cover the whole rice, amount of water should not exceed the level of your first line mid finger. After that put it in your rice cooker and switch it on. Rice cooker cooks it automatically.
White rice does not need extra time to cook.
Brown or any colored rice should be left or soaked for 10 to 15 minutes before cooking it ( because it is a bit hard ).
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

How do I cook brown rice in the rice cooker?

I tried it once and it wasn't easy. It appears that the automatic rice makers are calibrated for whit rice. Anyway, I had to add about twice as much water as white rice takes and restarted the cooker once or twice until it was done. It was a failure and I never attempted to cook brown rice in it again.
There may be rice cookers that have a setting and instructions for brown rice, but I've never seen one.
Good luck.
