Question about Rival RC61 6-Cup Rice Cooker
So i lost the cup that came with the cooker.. what should i use to measure the rice ?
I always fill rice up to the 2 line and then add water up to the 3 line.

Very funny, Mooie. :)
However, what the original poster meant was that the Rival 6-Cup Rice Cooker uses (for some stupid reason) a propriet... proprietar... ehh... their own little cup that isn't quite a 3/4 of a cup. You use the measuring cup to put a specific amount of rice, and then you fill the bowl with water to the mark for the number of cups you added.
I'd experimented around and a smidge less than a 3/4 seemed to work well.

180ml is the size of the Japanese Rice Cup, and 237ml is the size of a U.S. liquid measure cup. You can then do the math yourself. 180ml of white rice weighs about 145 grams, so if you want to use a scale instead of a Japanese Rice Cup, go that way and you also won't go wrong. Use a program such as MasterCook and you can convert 180ml of any type of rice to its equivalent weight in grams, or 90ml for half a Japanese Rice Cup of rice, or 270ml for 1.5 such cups and so on... then go from there.

The measuring cup which came w/ the cooker is slightly less than 3/4 cup. Call it a Tbsp less than 3/4 cup.

How many cups of rice did you use compared to water. Use the same number, using anything from a teaspoon to a small soda bottle. The rice doesn't really care how it gets measured.

Most of my experience with the rice cookers is that they require a japanese rice Cup which is different than the japanese regular cup. makes a whole lot of not sense but i found a replacement cup at one of the local Japanese Markets if you had to you could use regular measuring cup and use the 160ml for your measure. also the cup has a "Inomata" on it so maybe the web can help you
Eat lots of Rice

You use one cup of water for each cup of uncooked rice. You end up with about 2 cups of cooked rice for every cup of uncooked rice. Different varieties, such as brown rice, take more water, up to 2 cups of water per cup of uncooked rice. If the resulting rice is too dry, you can add more water and restart the cooker.
I am not sure, but I believe that 16 cups refers to cooked rice, so you should not put more than 8 cups of uncooked rice in the cooker.
