I use a little more than a 2 to 1 ratio when cooking rice. 2 parts water to 1 part rice you will have to experiment a little and adjust as necessary.

I don't have the cup that goes with my Hitachi rice cooker. Using a regular cup, how much water for each cup of rice?


I suggest that after you wash the rice on your rice cooker bowl level it and measure the height of your rice using your hand finger ( middle finger ) then that is also the water you need. but put the water slowly to maintain the level of the rice because this is also you guide to level it. I mean. 1. wash your rice. 2. level it ( the rice ) inside the bowl of rice cooker and measure the height of your rice by using your hand finger ( the middle finger ) and remember it. 3.put the water slowly, and your hand finger should be from the top of your rice to measure the height of your water. I hope you understand me!\ just try it because this is the way that how to cook the rice even any kind of bowl.

Recieved one as a gift lost instructions how much rice to water


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).

Does steam tray/lid go on top or bottom of rice cooker?


The steam tray as you call it goes on the inside bottom of the cooker. It's purpose is to keep the cooking rice separated from the heating element during the steaming process. The basic measurement is 2 parts water to 1 part rice. Add a quarter cup more water for brown rice. The automatic shut-off won't turn off until the water is gone. It's magic! Cleaning; soak the cook pot and perforated plate to remove rice goo DO NOT USE STEEL WOOL PADS or abrasive cleanser. I use a nylon dish cleaning brush to remove the stuck on brown material.

I have a rice cooker with no instructions and need to know how much water per cup of rice


I have access to the Australian Owners Manual for this model if it would help.

It says:
Add water using the following ratios:
White Rice = 1cup water : 1cup rice
Brown Rice = 11⁄2 cups water : 1cup rice

Rice Measurements


You use one cup of water for each cup of uncooked rice. You end up with about 2 cups of cooked rice for every cup of uncooked rice. Different varieties, such as brown rice, take more water, up to 2 cups of water per cup of uncooked rice. If the resulting rice is too dry, you can add more water and restart the cooker.

I am not sure, but I believe that 16 cups refers to cooked rice, so you should not put more than 8 cups of uncooked rice in the cooker.

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

Amount of Rice


The Japanese measuring cup size of 200 ml works fine for my Hitachi RD-5083 and likely will work for most rice cookers. The standard US cup is 237 ml.
