Serving spoon Measuring cup Steaming tray
1. Measure the desired amount of rice with the measuring cup (supplied).
|1 cup of rice||0.18L in measuring cup||150g (approximately)|
2. Rinse the rice several times until the water in the bowl becomes relatively clear.If the water is cloudy, it requires further rinsing.DO NOT rinse rice whilst in the inner pot. If the pot is used for rinsing rice, the fluorine-resin coating may be damaged or the bottom may become deformed, which will result in poor conduction while cooking.
3. Remove the inner pot from the cooker body for this step.Pour the rice into the inner pot, then pour water up to the level which corresponds to the measure of rice used.The line markings in the pot are the water lines. The right line corresponds to liters of rice, the left line corresponds to cups of rice.The water line on the cooking pot is standard, it can be adjusted depending on your taste.NEVER add water higher than the maximum water line.
Note:When cooking high quantities of South Asian rice (8-10 cups), we recommend pouring one extra cup of water than the water mark to get the best performance.
4. If there is any water residue on the outside of the inner pot, wipe the water from the pot before placing the pot into the cooker body. Gently rock the pot back and forth to level out the rice.
5. Place the pot into the cooker. Once placed, turn the pot slightly from left to right to ensure that the pot is making sufficient contact with the heating plate.
6. Ensure the rice cooker is plugged into a wall outlet, and turned on at the wall. The “Warm” light will be on.
7. Press down the Cooking Switch. The “Cook” light will turn on, and the rice will begin to cook. Leave the cooker, and do not stir the rice while cooking is in progress.
8. When the rice cooker has finished actively cooking, the Cooking switch will automatically pop up and a click will be heard. The “Cook” light will turn off, and the “Warm” light will turn on.
9. Although the rice can be eaten at this stage, you will get better results if you leave the rice to sit on warm for a short while. We recommend keeping the lid closed for about 5-10 minutes after cooking to ensure all remaining liquid becomes steam, finishing the cooking process. This ensures a fluffier and tastier end result.
Note:Maximum Keep Warm time is 30 minutes. Ideal time is 5-10 minutes, depending on rice amount and water level. To avoid overcooking or burning during keep warm time, ensure rice is actively monitored during this stage.
10. When the rice is completely cooked, open the lid and stir/fluff the rice with the spoon. Cooked rice can be served immediately or be kept to warm automatically.
