Good day,
hope this link below will solve your problem.

maybe you put to much water in the rice that's why it keeps coming out.
if the rice boiled to much it will become clumpy and sticky.
it happens all the time in our country.
i don't think its a technical problem.

Sounds like it's working perfectly for an Asian family. :-) Our rice cooker is a different design (made for Americans) and we can reduce the stickiness by adding more water than called for and rinsing the rice before cooking. Good luck!

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.

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    • Note that you may not always need to rinse the rice, and this is somewhat of an outdated practice.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


The rice will stick if there's not the right amount of water added.

The rice cooker should have numbers marked on the side of the pot. Those number correspond to the amount of water to be added for a given amount of rice. For instance, if you add 4 cups of rice, add water until it reaches the 4 mark.
