Question about West Bend 86600 Rice Cooker
Friend gave this to me. She got it at a garage sale. No instruction manual. West Bend site doesn't have one. It is oblong and appears to be primarily a veg. steamer? Does have amounts for food, amounts, water, and cooking time printed on the side.
I haven't experimented with it yet. Want to mainly use it for rice. Of course, times and water amounts not listed on side of cooker for BROWN rice.
Any knowledge of this little baby?

RICE Bowl: appliance part with N O holes in the bottom ! ! ! ! Put your rice (1 cup and water 1 2/3 water in to this part). In addition, fill bottom steamer with water to the MAX level.

I have two of these...absolutely love them!! I do 2 cups of white rice with 2 1/2 cups of water. It completely fills the rice 'basket' when done, but it won't overflow. I also add seasonings, depending on what I'll be using the rice for...Mrs. Dash's Parmesan Garlic Blend, Tastefully Simple's Garlic Garlic, etc. Just stir some into the rice before steaming! Be creative, and don't be afraid to substitute broth for water...omg, it's soooo good!
