How much rice does the rice measuring cup hold for the Rival 6 cup rice cooker?

×

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.

1 cup rice and 2 3/4 cups water
SO:
2 cups rice and 5 1/2 cups water should do it.

### Lost manual; what is ratio of rice to water? thanks!

All right, this can be a bit confusing. IF you still have the cup that came with your Rice Cooker, use it to measure your rice. Then, inside the cooker there are lines showing how much water to add based on how many of the Zojirushi measuring cups you used of rice. THAT's simple.
IF you DON'T still have your Rice Maker measuring cup you will have to use a 3/4 cup U.S measuring cup. This equals the same amount as the rice cooker cup. For each 3/4 cup of rice you use, add that many cups of water. If you use 3/4 cups of rice twice, then add water to the 2 line.
In other words, a rice cooker measuring cup equals 3/4 cup of regular U.S measuring cups.
Hope I didn't confuse this too much. I hope this helps and if it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution. Good luck and happy cooking!

### I lost the measuring cup. Can I use a regular measuring cup? If so, what amount would I use? For 1 cup, 2 cups,or 3 cups? I'm sure there is a solution. Thanks.

1 cup of rice in the rival cup does NOT equal 1 cup of rice in a regular measuring cup. I lost mine too and I've found that using 3/4 cup of a regular measuring cup works with the lines on the inside of the pot

### Lost my instruction book...want instructions to make rice in cooker...ratio of rice and water please

I have a Toastmaster 3 cup rice cooker but think the ratio would be the same.
Long grain white rice - 2 rice measuring cups - water to 2 cup line = 8 (1/2 cup) servings
3 rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line = 12 (1/2 cup) servings

Long grain brown rice - 1 1/2 Rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line - 6 (1/2 cup) servings

For fluffy rice: After cooker shuts off, allow rice to stand for approx. 15 minutes, covered, before serving.

Hope this helps
