Check this procedure:
* Before cooking, rinse rice in warm water until water becomes clear. Then place the rice in the inner pot with fresh water.
* Take care to use proper water to rice ratios.
* Use a 1:1 ratio of rice to water plus ½ cup of water for white rice and a 1:1 ratio plus ¾ cup of water for brown rice.

TIPS:
# You may wish to tweak the "rice to water ratio" with experience - for example: for larger quantities of rice, you may find a little less or more than one and a half the amount of water results in better rice.
# One cup of dry rice grains cooked in this way is about sufficient to accompany a meal for 2 adults.
# If the rice is a major component of the dish, you might need up to 1 cup of rice per adult.
# Your base measurement doesn't need to be a cup necessarily - the key is to add 1.5x as much water as rice, whatever the quantity.
# It works best to use the original lid of the pot you use, since it will seal best.
# When the rice first boils, it might weep a bit or even lift the lid. Keep watch and an ear out for the start of the boil.
# These times and ratios are for white rice (e.g. Jasmine, Basmati, etc). If you are cooking brown rice you will need around 2C water to 1C rice and double the time.
# Salt is not necessary when cooking rice, but can be added. Unless you add a ridiculous amount of salt it will not significantly change the boiling temperature or time.
# Water boils at a lower temperature at altitude. If you live at a high altitude it will take longer to cook rice using this method.

I hope help with this (remember to rate this answer).

Lost my instruction book...want instructions to make rice in cooker...ratio of rice and water please


I have a Toastmaster 3 cup rice cooker but think the ratio would be the same.
Long grain white rice - 2 rice measuring cups - water to 2 cup line = 8 (1/2 cup) servings
3 rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line = 12 (1/2 cup) servings

Long grain brown rice - 1 1/2 Rice measuring cups - water to 3 cup line - 6 (1/2 cup) servings

For fluffy rice: After cooker shuts off, allow rice to stand for approx. 15 minutes, covered, before serving.

Hope this helps
