Re: rice


i love eating rice.

when you want to cook rice in a rice cooker, the ratio is 1:1.

1 cup of uncooked rice is to 1 cup water.

just be sure you use the same cup.

hope you will have a delicious rice meal!

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.

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

How many cups of rice do you put in when your water line is at 3


Tips on cooking rice:

You estimate first how many rice you are cooking then follows how many water you will be needing to cook it.

In an average, 1 cup of rice per person (depending on the persons appetite) = 2 cups of water. Rinse first the rice about 2 - 3 times to remove unwanted stuffs then start pouring and measuring the water.


1 cup rice = 2 cups water (common ratio), but there are also type of rice that requires more water or less water. You can adjust next time the water depending on the result. If the rice is a little bit hard then add more water the next time you cook. If the result is too soft then minus the water.

Hope you can cook now a perfect rice! Bon appetite!

Need basic directions

There is a cup that comes with it that equals about 2/3 of a regular measuring of these or 2/3 cup for every cooked cup that you want to end up with...
The water...
There are lines on most of the cookers with numbers that represent the number of cups you are cooking...fill with water to that line....
If you are not sure, just fill with water a bit over the top of the rice...the amount is not that critical as the cooker senses when the water is cooked off and then shuts a bit more will only make the cooking time a bit longer... no biggee...
Also it is best to rinse your rice before you actually leave the water in the pot that you are going to cook with...
remeber also if you have a brown rice setting that the cooking times are MUCH up to 90 minutes, so get it started in plenty of time or you will be eating rice for a snack before bed...

These things are really goof proof and make great rice very easily...

Rice cooking

if that rice when cooked is too soft or too hard.. then , you might want to add more water to it. the correct ratio for cooking rice is always 1 cup rice and 1 cup water. it also depends on what type of rice your cooking though, some type of rice become too mushy when too much water is added... so always have some minimal water to the uncooked rice.

Salton RA3 3-Cup Rice Cooker Question

Put equal amounts rice and water (up to 3 cups only) in liner pot, plug in, put lid on, flip little front switch. 10-15 minutes later it will be done and the pot will switch to "warm" mode by itself. Gently fluff with paddle before serving. You can also add salt or other seasonings to the water/rice mixture before starting.

How do I cook rice in my steamer where do I put the water?

there is normally a special rice bowl, which looks like the lid upside down which is used for rice cooking and should be placed at the highest point in the upper steam bowl and place the lid on top. for 1 cup of white regular rice, use 1 1/2 cups of water, steam for 45-50 mins for 1 cup long grain rice use 1 2/3 cups of water, steam for 50-55 mins for 1/2 cup of brown regular rice, use 1 cup water and steam for 42-45mins
