Cooking rice
Best results for cooking rice depend on the right proportion of rice to water. When
preparing rice, follow the instructions on the packaging and check if:
* you have plain, uncooked rice?
* the rice has been pre-cooked or steamed?
Pre-cooked rice is available under such names as “instant rice”, etc.
All information about rice (white or brown, long-grain, wild, basmati, etc.) concerns its
quality and taste. This has little meaning for cooking the rice.
A pinch of salt may be added for taste, if desired.
Preparing normal (raw) rice
If rice is washed before cooking, it will be less sticky but will lose some of its nutritional
qualities.
If uncooked rice is left 5-10 minutes to absorb water, it will be softer when cooked.
1. Measure out the desired amount of rice and pour it into the rice cooker.
2. Pour the proper amount of water into the inner pot. The amount of water depends on
the amount of rice used, and is determined using the scale on the inner pot. If, for
example, you want to cook 4 cups of rice, fill the inner pot with water to the 4 CUP
level.
3. Place the filled inner pot inside the outer pot and close the lid until you hear a “click”
sound.
CAUTION!
Ensure that there are no crumbs on the outer surface of the inner pot or on the
heating plate.
4. Insert the plug into a socket.
5. Push the ON/OFF switch down. The red “COOKING” indicator will come on.
The lid must be closed during cooking.
6. After a time the rice cooker will automatically switch into keep warm mode, and the
green „KEEP WARM” indicator will come on.
- 27 -
7. Leave the rice inside the closed pot for another five minutes before removing.
8. Press the locking button and open the lid.
9. Remove the plug from its socket.
Preparing pre-cooked rice (instant rice)
When measuring water for instant rice, follow the instructions on the package.
1.

4.
Pour the measure water into the inner pot.
Place the inner pot inside the rice cooker and close the lid.
Insert the plug into an outlet.
Push the ON/OFF switch down. The red “COOKING” indicator will come on.

7.
8.
9.
When the water is boiling, pour the measured instant rice into the inner pot.
Close the lid and cook the rice for as long as the package indicates.
Remove the plug from its socket.
Follow the instructions on the instant rice package.
Some rice brands must be left for 15 minutes under a closed lid.
Steaming
The rice cooker can also be used for steam cooking. When steaming, use the sieve.
Steaming is especially appropriate for vegetables, because when cooked in steam they
lose much less of their nutritional value than when cooked with other methods.

•
Pour the measured water into the inner pot and place it inside the rice cooker.
•
Place the food products on the sieve, place the sieve inside the inner pot and
close the lid.
CAUTION!
When filling the sieve, never place food products above the top of the sieve.
•
Place the rice cooker plug into a socket and press the ON/OFF switch down.
•
Keep the lid closed during steaming if possible. When open, the rice cooker loses
the steam required for steam cooking. You may compensate the loss of steam by
adding water.
WARNING! Danger of burns!
Do not touch or open the device during operation. It may result in scalds caused
by the escaping steam.
•
Press the ON/OFF switch up after steaming time has elapsed.
•
Remove the plug from its socket.
•
Do not allow food to remain in the inner pot too long after steaming.
•
In order to avoid damaging the non-stick coating of the inner pot, do not use
metal spoons or metal scoops at any time. Use the rice spoon provided.
Condensation tray
•
Empty the condensation tray after each use.
To do so, press on both sides and pull off.
•
To replace the condensation tray, place it up against
the slot in the rice cooker and lightly press.
