Re: Amount of Rice
I use the same measurements that are on the package in my rice cooker and watch it. I cook so many different types of rice, that that seems the best. It always works fine. A little extra moisture makes the rice "stickier" and vice versa.

All right, this can be a bit confusing. IF you still have the cup that came with your Rice Cooker, use it to measure your rice. Then, inside the cooker there are lines showing how much water to add based on how many of the Zojirushi measuring cups you used of rice. THAT's simple.
IF you DON'T still have your Rice Maker measuring cup you will have to use a 3/4 cup U.S measuring cup. This equals the same amount as the rice cooker cup. For each 3/4 cup of rice you use, add that many cups of water. If you use 3/4 cups of rice twice, then add water to the 2 line.
In other words, a rice cooker measuring cup equals 3/4 cup of regular U.S measuring cups.
Hope I didn't confuse this too much. I hope this helps and if it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution. Good luck and happy cooking!
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).
To cook rice, fill center basin of base with water. Place the rice bowl
on basin. Add rice and water as follows. For white rice add water in a
1:1 ratio to rice plus 1/2 cup. For brown rice add water in a 1:1 ratio
to rice plus 3/4 cup. Examples: 1 cup white rice, 1-1/2 cup water; 2
cups brown rice, 2-3/4 cups water. Put lid on and plug in and in about
50 minutes you should have delicious rice.
There are many types of rice. Follow specific directions for variety used.
2. Accurately measure rice and water then combine in rice bowl.
Pour specified amount of water in water reservoir. Cover and steam.
3. For softer rice, increase by 1 – 2 tablespoons the water mixed with rice
by the specified amount of water on the chart. For firmer rice decrease
water mixed with rice by the same amount.
4. Check doneness and consistency of rice at minimum time specified
for each type, stirring rice at the same time.
5. When checking/stirring rice, be careful not to drip the condensate into the
rice bowl which would reduce the quality and flavor of the steamed rice.
6. Use only clean water in water reservoir
7. Rice may be seasoned with salt, pepper or butter after steaming.
Combined In Rice Bowl Approx. Time
Type of Rice Rice Amount Water (Minutes)
Regular 1/2 cup 1 cup 42 – 45
Parboiled 1 cup 1-1/2 cups 45 – 50
Long Grain and Wild Rice Mix
Regular (6 oz. pkg.) Mix 1-1/2 cups 50 – 55
Quick Cooking (6-1/2 oz. pkg.) Mix 1-3/4 cups 18 – 20
Instant 1 cup 1-1/2 cups 15 – 18
Regular 1 cup 1-1/2 cups 45 – 50

hello there here it is pretty simple ok 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. hope that is verry helpfull best regards michael
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.
The measuring cup for my Rival RC100 holds 6 oz (volume of water to the top rim). The markings on the inside of the pot (1 through 5) seem to hold about 12 oz each. (that is: the 1 line holds 12.2 oz, the 5 line held 57 ounces of water) close enough to the standard 2 to 1 water to rice ratio. I put in about 1.7X as much water (by volume) as brown rice, and it comes out very good for me. (1 cup rice to 1 3/4cup water).
