Question about Rival RC160 16-Cup Rice Cooker

Open Question

This afternoon i put rice and water in the cooker and about an hour later i found out the rice weren't ready, though the water did warm up, both lights were off. I tried several times afterward but seems not to be working. Any help will be highly appreciated. Please note the unit is less than 6 months old but I don't have the receipt.

Sounds like the Thermal Fuse inside is blown unscrew the 2 screws on bottom of the cooker you should see a small 2.5 inch insulation wrapped wire leaving a ceramic mounting block to one of the element poles. Now you take off the nut and unscrew it from the pole. Cut off the insulation and underneath will be a Thermal Fuse. If you have a Ohm Meter or a continuity tester attach each lead to either side and it probably will test negative. Part # is written on the Thermal Fuse. Probably a

When the rice first gets done, leave it on warm for a few then unplug it. Whatever you don't eat right away put in the fridge for later.

I just bought a rice cooker at a garage sale. It had no instruction manual


To make rice, remove the trivet if you have one as this is only for steaming food.

Wash rice to get rid of excess starch and put in pan. Then add the same amount of water as rice (2 cups water to 2 cups rice etc.) then shut lid and switch on and leave it.
Once it has switched off do not open the lid for a further 20 minutes (the machine will keep the rice warm do not worry) Stir rice and serve. Most rice cookers will keep the rice warm for a couple of hours.

If you find the rice is a bit dry then add a little bit more water, the amount of water really depends on the quality of rice used.

Rice cooker manual


Not sure which type of Tefal rice cooker you have received.
You may want to go to the Tefal website and pick the manual for the one that could be your model.

Though there is not much to it if you are cooking rice. Take the pot out and wash it as any metal utensil. Put as many cups of rice you want to cook in a separate bowl using the measure that would have come with it. Otherwise take a 150ml measure. Wash it the rice thoroughly with water and drop it into the pot. Fill water to the level of number of the cups you have put in. Wipe the pot dry from outside and place in the cooker jacket. Put lid on. Turn the power on and press the Cook button. Once rice is cooked it will switch to keep warm and leave it there for about 5 minutes before you use the cooked rice.

There are lines on the inside of the inner pot that show how much rice and water to put in. It is roughly 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of water. Put this inside the lower pot, put a cup or two of water in the lower pot and get it boiling, then turn it down with just enough heat to keep the water boiling. Just make sure the water doesn't boil away. The rice will be done in about 45 mins. The nice thing about this cooker is that you can't really overcook the rice. It will keep it warm and ready to serve for some time.

Need directions for Comet stove top rice cooker


Fill the bottom to the line with water. Put two cups of rice in the top and two cups of water. Put on stove top on high until lower water is boiling, turn to medium heat. For white rice check after about 20 minutes, if water is assorbed and rice is tender, fluff with a fork...eat. If it needs a few more minutes of cooking, no problem.
Brown rice will take about 45 minutes.
I have used my stove top cooker for at least 35 years...ordered it with box top and some money from Comet Rice.

Betty Crocker rice cooker


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...

Put equal amounts rice and water (up to 3 cups only) in liner pot, plug in, put lid on, flip little front switch. 10-15 minutes later it will be done and the pot will switch to "warm" mode by itself. Gently fluff with paddle before serving. You can also add salt or other seasonings to the water/rice mixture before starting.

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.
