Question about Zojirushi NHS-10 6-Cup Rice Cooker
When we cook brown rice, even though we have rinsed it repeatedly, hot rice juice spits from the hole in the cover all over the counter. We have to move it away from everything and put a towel down to deal with the mess. We've tried putting a 1 oz. childs plastic medicine dispensing cup with holes cut in it over the hole in the lid, as well as a paper towel or cloth napkin, but all of these attempted solutions result in hot rice juice spitting out from the opposite side of the lid, making a mess on the other side of the cooker. What's up? We thought we were upgrading from a $20 black and decker steamer, but we've been very disapointed so far.
I had the same problem when I cooked brown rice in my rice cooker! I found that adding a tablespoon of butter on top of the cooking rice solves the problem. (A friend told me it works when cooking beans in a pot, so I figured it would help with rice too, and it did!)

I think I have this cooker. It has strong heat. It cooks white rice fast but with brown rice it can singe the bottom brown. Mostly because it is a hot cooker. So I just make sure I turn it off a little early and just let the rice steam cook at the end. Hope this give you some help. Ps. Make sure your lid has the little air hole for air to escape. Mine does. Hopefully yours does. If it doesnt then that is the problem. Too much pressure from boiling with no air escape. I would suggest if so. Let the cover slightly leave a slight air escape.
