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.
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.
On the outside of the rice cooker you should locate a button. Push this down and when rice is cooked, the button should pop up (may or may not ring when finished). Once you see the button pop up (or hear it ring), you should leave the lid on for approx 15 minutes longer to finish steaming.
Here are the instructions that came with the cooker:
Cooking times may vary due to variations in microwave ovens.Adjust cooking times for best results in your oven. To Cook Rice: 1. Remove basket. 2. Pour 1 cup of uncooked rice into the bottom of the basket, rinse rice thoroughly with cold water. 3. Transfer the rinsed rice from the basket to the bottom of the cooker. 4. Add 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 tsp salt (salt is optional). 5. Secure lid and lock clamps. Open vent holes. 6. Microwave on medium setting (50%) for 10 - 12 minutes (white rice) or 18-20 (brown rice). 7. Remove from microwave, close vent holes and let stand with the lid fastened for 4-5 minutes (the steam continues to cook the rice.) 8. Remove rice from the cooker and fluff with a fork. Yields: 3 cups of cooked rice or 4 to 6 servings. Cooking Potatoes and Vegetables: 1. Insert Basket. 2.Pour one cup of water plus 1/4 tsp. salt into the bottom of the cooker. 3. Peel vegetables (if desired), cut into evenly sized pieces and place inside basket. 4. Secure lid and lock clamps. Close vent holes. 5. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes. 6. Remove from microwave and let stand with lid fastened for 3-4 minutes (the steam continues to cook the vegetables.) Cooking Pasta: 1. Remove basket and lid (lid not used initially for preparing pasta inside the microwave). 2. Pour 2 cups (5 oz.) of uncooked noodles into the bottom of the cooker. 3. Add 2 1/2 cups water. 4. Microwave on high setting 10 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes. 5. Remove from microwave, stir noodles, secure lid and lock clamps. Close vent holes. Let stand for 3-4 minutes.
On this rice cooker to make a perfect pot without overboiling....Use 2 cups of rice and 4 cups of water, When it starts to boil life the lid ONCE and stir and then put the lid back on pressing down to make a seal, The water should not boil over if you follow these instructions, I just made a pot :).....Oh and use the same measuring cup for the rice and the water, Just remeber....One cup of rice = two cups of water!
THIS is a generic manual and can be a guide for most cookers/steamers.
The rice and water go into the Inner Pot, Not the steamer basket. Some useful tips:
How can I reduce or stop the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan or
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.
How can I stop the water in the inner pot from boiling over the lid?
You may be using too much water.
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.
How can I clean my rice cooker?
Unplug and allow to cool completely.
Always exercise extreme caution as the unit becomes hot during operation.
Soak the inner pot in hot, soapy water for a few minutes.
Wash with a non-abrasive pad.
Wipe the heating base with a damp cloth.
All other items can be washed with soap and hot water.
NEVER use an abrasive cleaner or steel wool.
Note: This unit SHOULD NOT be put in the dishwasher,
How does a rice cooker know when to ‘Keep Warm’?
The boiling temperature for water is 212°F.
As soon as all of the water has evaporated the temperature inside the inner pot
Rice cookers have a Keep Warm Setting that can detect when the temperature
rises above the 212°F.
When this happens it automatically turns to the Keep Warm Setting.
This helps to ensure perfect rice every time.

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.
