How to used to cook white rice?


Hi
my rule for cooking rice is 1 part rice: 2 parts water big pinch of salt. This can we'll be done in the micro. Set it for 10 minutes, open the door and wander how the rice is doing. Take a fork. Put into the rice and find out how cooked it is. You will probably need another 10-15 minutes. Depends on the micro.
With a rice cooker it is much more accurate. Look inside the inner pot ,on the one side there could be numbers for cups of rice and on the other side for cups of water.
I hope you can find your answer here Food Steamers Rice Cookers Oster
all the best

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.

No manual or instructions


I know the exact model you are talking about! I have one myself....Basically it is always two parts water to one part rice using the same measuring cup to measure both! So if you decided to use it for 6 cups total it would be 4 cups of water and 2 cups rice.....As for veges, You would fill the bottom of the inside pot just enough to where it doesnt touch the other pot that goes inside with holes to hold the veges and you can add a little salt, But then you close the lid and press the cook button and when it finishes it makes a quick and easy dinner side!

Spoiled rice after 20+ hours


I know this thread is old but after much research and trying all the crazy theories on sanitizing the rice cooker I have solved the problem and it should work for you too. EVERY person I've shared this with has reported the same results, rice that keeps for up to a week, nice and hot in the rice cooker as it ALWAYS has, the way you remember when you were a kid.

The problem lies not with the cooker itself but in the water you're using. Yes as simple as that. Let me give you a brief overview. You probably don't know but the tap water you're using most likely is treated with a compound called chloramine. The problem is this compound is also subject to a biological process called nitrification which in turn leads to an accelerated biological process in your rice cooker. This is a very high level explanation and there is much more detailed scientific explanations of the process and issues that are exacerbated by the pipes in your house and at the plant. I will not cover all the technical aspects but if you're wondering why this didn't happen before it's mainly because water was treated with chlorine before, not chloramine.

The bottom line is this. Rinse and cook your rice using ONLY bottled spring water, check the label. If it indicates the bottled water you're using is from municipal sources, call the manufacturer to make sure there is no chloramine. If you do this you will be so relieved and happy, I'll be happy knowing I saved you the frustration and brought rice peace to your life.

Forget about all the special cleaning procedures or equipment testing, I too thought there was something wrong with my fuzzy logic cooker...NOT!!!
