SOURCE: Spoiled rice after 20+ hours

Our rice cooker would keep the rice from spoiling for about two years and then all of a sudden it wouldn't keep for even 12 hours before the "spoiling" smell would be present. I tried really washing every washable part and even did an alcohol wipedown in case it was a bacterial or something, but nothing worked. I liked the cooker before this started happening, but don't want to buy another one because it is so expensive. When I was in Japan, there are some REALLY good ones that would monitor the moisture level and want one of those, but will have to live with what is available here. Anyone got a solution?

SOURCE: Rice burning at bottom of cooker

I also have this problem and I fixed it by adding in a little more water and by removing the power cord from the outlet immediately after the cooker finishes it's cycle. Not ideal, but it does save my rice.

SOURCE: mushy after less then 24 hours

It's not meant to keep in there for a few days. A few hours would be the max, say for a party for instance. When you are done with the rice, take it out and put it in your refridgerator.

SOURCE: Rice Cooker Instructions

if cooking rice is your problem. you must first fill your rice cooker with rice and rinse it with water to remove excess starch when your done removing the excess starch you will have to add water for every cup of rice, 1 1/2 cups water or you can try 1:2 ratio (1 cup of rice: 2 cups of water). same goes to any other cuisines. i hope you find my solution helpful.

How long dose brown rice take to cook


  1. 1Rinse the rice under cool water. Place the brown rice in a fine mesh strainer and quickly rinse it under cold running water for about 30 seconds.
    • Make sure that the strainer is made from very fine mesh. If the gaps between the wires are too large, you could end up losing an unfortunate amount of rice as you rinse it.
    • Note that you may not always need to rinse the rice, and this is somewhat of an outdated practice. Rinsing is a cleaning process and is a necessary step if you suspect that the rice has been imported or handled roughly in bulk storage. If the rice is a fortified, domestic product, however, you probably will not need to worry about rinsing it.[1]
  2. 2Soak the rice for 45 minutes in hot water.[2] Transfer the brown rice to your rice cooker and add 3 cups of water to the basin, as well.[3] Let it soak and soften for at least 45 minutes.
    • You can soak the rice up to 3 hours, if desired, but 45 minutes will often be enough.
    • If you prefer a more flavorful rice, you could substitute some or all of the water with chicken broth or vegetable broth. Substitute the broth in equal amounts for the water.
    • Soaking is beneficial because it reduces the stickiness of the rice. It also helps the rice expand into long, thin grains.
  3. 3Add salt, if desired. Sprinkle the soaked rice with salt, if desired, to draw out more flavor from the rice as it cooks.
    • Give the contents of the rice cooker a quick stir with a wooden mixing spoon to distribute the salt more evenly.
  4. 4Turn the rice cooker on and set the timer. If your rice cooker has a brown rice setting, use that. If it only has a timer, set the timer for 30 minutes.
    • The rice cooker must remain covered for the duration of the cooking process.
    • Check the rice after the first 30 minutes. If the grains still seem tough and the content of the basin are still somewhat soupy, cover and set the timer for another 10 minutes.
    • Understand that each rice cooker varies by make and model. In order to cook the rice as best as possible, you need to read the instructions that come with your rice cooker and set the timer and other settings according to what you read there.
  5. 5Let the rice stand. After the timer goes off, let the rice stand for another 5 to 10 minutes so that it absorbs any remaining water in the basin.[4]
    • Leave the cover on as the rice continues to sit.
  6. 6Add butter and/or soy sauce, if desired. If you want to flavor the cooked rice, you could add about 2 Tbsp (30 ml) of butter or margarine or 1 Tbsp (15 ml) of soy sauce. Stir well to coat the rice evenly.
    • You could also wait until after you place the rice in serving dishes before seasoning it. That way, everyone can season the rice according to his or her own tastes.
  7. 7Serve hot. Transfer the rice to serving dishes or set it aside for use in other recipes that call for cooked brown rice.

Rice cooker not turning on


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.

Here is a tip that I wrote about rice cookers and the amount of rice and water needed...

BOILS OVER


HELLO THERE
I think that you might need to refer to the users manual on the operation of this rice cooker some cookers need to be shut off after a certain time to allow for the steam to cook the rice the rest of the way some may need less water some need more depends on the type of rice that makes a big difference ok?
best regards michael

Can I use boxed rice mixes in my rice cooker?


I made some Zatarrain's red beans and rice a couple of days ago and it came out fine.

My real question is what is the advantage of a rice cooker over a simple pot and wind up timer? My rice cooker sticks and has to be stirred, and it does not shut off automatically when the rice is done, or at least I stopped it early since it was done and not shut off. If I had waited the whole time it might have burned.

But, boxed rice should be no different than all the rice cooker meal recipes with meat and vegatables that get steamed.

Just follow the recommended water amount on the box.

But, you have to make sure that your rice cooker is big enough to hold the finished quantity on the box. If not, you may only be able to make 1/2 a box.

I forgot how to use my Sunbeam 4713/5710 rice cooker


Not familiar with this particular model, but most rice cookers use basket for steaming vegies, not rice. Leave basket out and you should get cooked rice!!
Also:Put butter, oil, or margarine in with rice, or spray pan with PAM when dry and empty to avoid sticking problems. Enjoy!

Rice cooker vs a crocpot/slow cooker


I have both and use both for different things. The rice cooker cooks faster than the slow cooker. What the Crockpot does really well, the rice cooker cannot do. For example, with the crock pot, you can buy less expensive cuts of meat and because of the slow cook method, they will be tender, juicy, and delicious. You can make soups, stews and casseroles in a crock pot and the great thing is that you can turn it on low, go to work, and when you come home, dinner is done. You can cook the same types of things in a rice cooker but you can't leave it all day. You CAN saute', fry, etc,. in your rice cooker which you can't do in a crock pot but for dense veggies and tougher cuts of meat, stew beef for example, there's no comparison. I have an Oster Rice Cooker and Steamer which I use nearly every day. I cook rice, obviously, casseroles, veggies, spaghetti and meatballs, all kinds of side dishes and soups in it. I use the crockpot several times a week but more often in the Fall and Winter when I make soups, stews, chilis, roasts and BBQ. Oh my gosh, you have to try BBQ Ribs in the crock pot! They melt in your mouth. Go to Yahoo! Groups. You'll find all kinds of great info for both your rice cooker and crock pot. I have one of the fancier, more expensive crock pots because I take it to work with me one day a week for lunch. The lid seals and it comes with a carrier. If you do most of your cooking at home, you can spend a little less and get a good one. I recommend getting one that has at least 3 heat settings though. Different foods require different temps. Happy Cooking!
