Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others
I recently purchased a vintage Comet 3 piece aluminum stove top rice cooker. I need directions on how to cook rice with it. Thanks.

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.

I also have this cooker and it's really easy. Just put water in the bottom/main pot up to the fill line. The fill line is stamped into the metal, and is just above the flared bottom..about 1-1/2 to 2" up from bottom.
Then add rice to the internal pot.....I usually use the Mahatma Jasmine Rice (wonderful!) and add 1 cup of rice + 1-1/2 cup of water + 1 teaspoon (adjust for you) salt + 1 tblspn Butter. These are the exact dirrections on the rice package. So you have the rice/water mixture in the internal pot.
Put internal pot on/in the external pot that has the 1-1/2 to 2" of water in it. And put on lid. Turn burner on Hi until the water boils in the bottom pot.....then turn it to low for about 15min. Keep the lid on to force the stem from bottom pot into the internal pot. I usually stir the rice once or twice during the cooking process. It's really easy and makes the best rice. Note there is also a fill line on the internal pot which I ignore...just ues package directions...but don't overfill!
You can cook other types of rice too....and you mainly just follow package directions putting ingredients into internal pot. Enjoy!!

Put 1 cup white rice and 1.5 cups water or broth in top part, fill with water to the line in bottom part. Bring water in bottom part to boil on high heat, turn down to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes.
Or, for brown rice, use 1.75 cups water or broth to 1 cup brown rice, bring to boil, turn down to medium-low, and cook for 45 minutes.
Because you are steaming, and thereby adding moisture, you don't put quite as much water in with the rice as the package instructions call for.
It will turn out fluffy and perfect, not too dry or too wet.
One great thing about these cookers is that you can, at the end of the cooking time, turn your burner way down as low as possible (to "warm" or a very low simmer), and the rice will stay hot and ready to eat for some time. This doesn't overcook it. Helps with coordinating your meal prep to get everything ready at the same time--it can sit and wait a little while as you finish getting everything else ready.
