There is a heat sensitive switch attached to the inner pot. It is very small, it turns the heat off when the pot reaches boiling temp. If it is open, replace it. They come in different temps, so get the right one. This one is supposed to open at 212 degrees, f. You will find a similar one in a Mr. Coffee, it switches the pot from boil to keep.

The cooker clicks over to "keep warm" before the


You're probably using too much water. Rice cooks primarily while sitting in hot water, not while its boiling. That's why the cooker switches to Keep Warm so quickly. The correct way to cook rice is to pre-soak the rice for about 30 minutes, drain to get rid of the excess starch, combine the rice and cold water and bring the water to a boil and turn off the heat and let it stand for 15-30 minutes. That's why*- rice cookers take 45 minutes or more.

Hi,
There is a sensor that regulates how hot the cooker gets and shuts it down to the warm setting when it senses that the heat is too high...meaning that all the water has cooked off....my guess is that the sensor failed and as far as I know it is not replaceable.

It is a blown thermal fuse. On 6-cup Rival it is across terminal where power comes into cooker. You can replace thermal fuse for less than a dollar in under an hour. Remove the bottom of the cooker. The thermal fuse is covered by a heat wrap sleeve across input terminal.

Rice is mushy, I have cut the water down by one cup and it is still mushy. 2 cups rice 4 cups water down to 3 cups water


If you are using regular rice, it is 1 cup of rice for 2 cups of water. Bring the combo to a hard boil and then reduce the heat to a slow simmer for 20min, stirring ocassionally.
If you are using "Minute Rice", it is 1cup of water to 1cup of rice. Bring the water to a hard boil, turn off the heat and add the rice. Cover for 5min. Fluff with a fork.

How many minutes for 2 cups of rice


The Wolfgang Puck BDRC0010 10-Cup Rice Cooker will stop automatically when the rice is cooked. The rice will be ready when the switch pops up to Warm. The average time would be about 20 minutes.
I hope this helps.

Purchased Durabrand Rice Cooker model HRC 18G working fine Is there a User manual for this cooker? All that is needed is ratio of water to rice including plain long grain and Basmati rice for 1 - 4...


Instructions quoted from the Durabrand Rice Cooker model HRC 18G manual...... 1 cup of uncooked rice rice will make about 2 cups of cooked rice. Add rice to the inner pot. Maximum four cups uncooked rice for the model. Many varieties of rice can be used including basmati, wild rice, arborio risotto, saffron rice and long grain rice. Whole grains, such as barley can also be prepared with the rice cooker, follow instructions on the package.

For every cup (160ml) of raw rice, add 1-1/2cups of water. For stickier rice add slightly more water, for fluffier rice use slightly less water.

When your rice is cooked, the cooker will automatically switch to the warm function and the yellow warm light will turn on. The cooker will stay in the warm function untill is disconnected from the wall outlet. The cooker will keep the rice warm 158F - 212F

Hope this helps, its quoted right out of the manual I have for my cooker

Why does it burn my rice on the bottom.


that is common to have the bottom part burn when cooking rice.

what i did was change the ratio of 5 cups water = 4 cups rice.

when its near cooking, dont leave it for a long time since it will continoiusly heat up in the bottom part, i suggest to unplug it when the rice is already cooked.

hope this will help.
