Preparing the Rice (Tips for cooking delicious rice)
1
Measure the rice.
Use the measuring cup included to measure the rice.
Fill the cup to the brim.
1 cup to the brim with measuring
cup included
For white rice
Approx. 180 mL (Approx. 1 Japanese cup)
ATTENTION Do not use commercially available measuring cup or
measuring rice bin.
(The amount of rice may differ.)
2
Wash the rice.
Firstly, swill the rice in a large
quantity of water to wash it and
then pour off the water right away.
The rice easily absorbs
the first water, so
discard it right away to
keep the rice dust from
sticking to the rice.
● Swill the rinse-free rice
from the bottom and
rinse it if water is cloudy.
(Cloudy water might
cause the rice not to
cook well.)
3
Adjust the amount
of water.
ATTENTION
Repeat this step until the
water remains clear.
Wash the rice well to
prevent scorching
and a residual smell
from the rice dust.
When washing the rice in the inner pot, do not use a metal whisk
or other tool.
(Such tools could scrape off the fluorine coating.)
Level out the rice, place the inner pot on a level surface, and use
the water level gauge to adjust the amount of water to match the
type and amount of rice and the cooking method.
(Water level gauge
P.7
)
Example) When cooking 3 cups of "White"
The water line is a guideline. You can adjust the amount of water for your preference.
Use the "Hard" water line when you want to cook rice hard for use in sushi, curry, etc.
Align with the "Soft" water line and you want to cook rice soft. However, do not add
water above the “Soft” water line. (Adding more water than this could cause hot water
spray out during cooking.)
ATTENTION ● Do not use hot water. (It will make the rice sticky.)
● Cooking with hard water could cause the rice to become sticky or turn yellow.
Also, cooking the rice in hard water (mineral water, etc.) could cause the rice to
become crunchy or hard. Adjust the amount of water for your preference.
● When cooking freshly harvested rice, as a guide, make a small
adjustment to the water level on the “Hard” water gauge. Cooking
freshly harvested rice with too much water will make it sticky.
● For information about water amount adjustment when cooking mixed grain, refer
to the mixed grain cooking manuals (written on the bag, etc.) available in stores.

Tips for Cooking Various Types of Rice
● Mix assorted grains into white rice at a ratio of 30% or less.
● Mix germinated brown rice into white rice at a ratio of 50% or less. If cooking at a ratio of 50% or more, use brown rice and
the "Brown" water line.
● When making Okowa (sticky rice), mix together 0.5 cup of white rice (uruchi rice) for every cup of glutinous rice. (If only
glutinous rice is used, premature water absorption may prevent rice from being cooked properly.) For red bean rice, mix it
according to the proportion given in
P.47 .
● If you are cooking a thin porridge, do not add water more than the water level line for “Porridge”, but reduce the amount of rice.
● After cooking rice, let the rice cooker cool down before cooking rice again.

Steam Warm lamp turns on. The “Warm Lo” is set upon factory shipment.
● Stir the rice right after cooking it and enjoy it while it is still warm.
Ways to use Keep Warm
"Warm Lo" This keeps rice warm at low temperature. This minimizes discoloration and drying out of the rice and saves electricity.
● Keep the Keep Warm time under 40 hours. (However, Keep Warm will continue even after 40 hours have passed.)
"Warm Hi"
This keeps rice warm at high temperature. This keeps down the formation of condensation on the inside of the lid and inner pot.
● Keep the Keep Warm time under 12 hours. (However, Keep Warm will continue even after 12 hours have passed.)

● Do not Keep Warm for more than Keep Warm time.
Rice unsuitable for Keep Warm
Depending on the rice type, keeping the rice warm could cause it to lose its quality, smell unusual, or become sticky.
Do not Keep Warm (Keeping the rice warm could cause it to lose its quality, smell unusual or become sticky)
Types of Rice: Do not Keep Warm if cooking rice using the following menus: "Germinated Brown", "Brown", "Glutinous
Rice (Sticky Rice)", "Mix", "Porridge".
Note
26
● During Keep Warm, condensation will form on the inside of the lid and inside the inner pot, but this
prevents the rice from drying out and is not a malfunction.
● Do not keep mixed grain cooked with "Normal|Texture" selected warm for more than 12 hours.
Depending on the type of mixed grain, it may become bitter, smell strange, or become sticky even if
kept warm for less than 12 hours.

Tips for keeping the rice warm and delicious
● Stir the rice occasionally during Keep Warm.
● When only a little rice is left, keep it in the center of
the inner pot as much as possible.
(To keep it from drying out or becoming sticky.)
● Keep the Keep Warm time short. Do not
keep warm for more than 40 hours for
“Warm Lo” or 12 hours for “Warm Hi”.
(It could cause the rice to smell unusual or
change color.)
● Do not warm rice that was cooked without being
washed well, do not leave the rice scoop in the rice
when keeping it warm, and do not warm rice that has
become cold.
(It could cause the rice to smell unusual or change color.)
● Rice can also be served deliciously by wrapping it in
plastic wrap and storing it in the freezer, and warming it
in a microwave oven later.
Reheat the rice during Keep Warm
● Reheat the rice as desired if the temperature of the rice during Keep Warm seems a little low.
ATTENTION
● As a guideline, set the amount of rice below 3 on the “White Rice” water level gauge.
● Stir the rice and level it out before reheating. (To prevent uneven heating)
● Do not repeatedly reheat the rice. (Doing so will dry it out or scorch it.)

●Remove inner pot from the rice cooker and use dishwashing detergent (pH-neutral) and a sponge or other soft material to wash inner pot.
●It may become impossible to cook rice satisfactorily if the inner pot becomes deformed due to being struck against something or dropped.
●The inner pot color might become uneven with use, but this will not affect performance or cleanliness.
Inner pot inside
●Observe the following to avoid scratching the fluorine coating on the inside.
• Use the rice scoop provided.
• Do not use metal ladle, whisk, etc.
• Do not use vinegar.
• Do not wash spoons, rice bowls, etc. in the pot.
• Do not wash with a polishing powder or scrubber.
●The fluorine coating on the inside will wear out with use, so treat it carefully.
●The fluorine coating is not harmful to humans.
●The surface rusts easily if moisture is left on it. Promptly wipe off moisture.
●Do not wipe the outside with paper towels, etc. Due to the rough surface on the outside, pieces
of the paper towels may remain on it.
Inner pot outside
ATTENTION
Note
●When removing the inner pot, use both hands to lift it straight out of the rice cooker. Lifting it out using only one
hand could cause it to catch on the rice cooker, making it difficult to lift out.
●A special “thermal sprayed thick iron pot” has been used to achieve the excellent cooking and heating performance of the inner pot.
This special fabrication method makes the outside rough. It could rub on the rice cooker when removing it from or placing it in the
rice cooker and cause plastic powder to stick to the inner pot, but this is not a problem for use. Wipe the powder off with a sponge.
In addition, pressing hard on the bottom of the inner pot when it is sitting in a sink could scratch the sink, so be careful.

Preventing rusting of the inner lid
The inner lid is made of stainless steel, but it can rust due to the residual iron and chloride in the moisture.
Wash the inner lid clean and wipe the moisture off after use. Separate the inner lid and plate to let them dry naturally.
If rusting occurs
● Apply a cream (liquid) cleanser, and rub off the rust with a balled-up
wrap.
● Afterwards, thoroughly rinse the inner lid, wipe away all moisture
and dry thoroughly.
● Sometimes the rust cannot be completely removed, so take good
care of the rice cooker to prevent rusting.
Cooking using spices
● Wash the washable parts immediately after cooking mixed rice,
cooking other foods, or cooking risotto, etc.
Leaving them dirty could cause odors, spoiling, or rust.

Non-water supply auto steamer (cont.)
● After cooking (steaming) is finished and during Keep Warm, the rice is kept moist by the steam, so condensation
also forms on the surface of the non-water supply auto steamer, but this is not a malfunction. In addition, when the
lid is opened, the condensation runs down into the condensation holding areas. This condensation has no effect on
the quality of the rice during cooking or Keep Warm, but if it concerns you, you can wipe it off with a cloth.
● The amount of water that collects in the non-water supply auto steamer differs depending on the menu, amount of
rice being cooked, the amount of adjustment of the water level, etc.
● When 1 mL of water in the non-water supply auto steamer has evaporated, it creates approximately 1600 mL of
steam. During steaming the vent is closed to trap the steam and sufficiently fill the inner pot with steam.
● If the plate is not attached, there will be no pressurization and the humidifier affected the steam will not be
obtained, resulting in the rice being a little hard.
● Remove and wash the inner lid, plate, and steam vent top casing each time after cooking.
(To prevent food debris on these parts from drying and discoloring.) (To prevent too much water from collecting and
getting on the rice when not keeping it warm.)
● To care for the rice cooker, wait for it to cool down and then use a sponge or soft cloth, etc. to wipe it. Do not use a
scrubber made of plastic or other material.
If there are odors
● If there are odors after cooking a mixed rice, risotto, or foods, or keeping rice warm, you can boil water and use the

When using the rice cooker close to a wall, furniture, or a kitchen storage
shelf, make sure the released steam will not be trapped.
Adding seasoning and other ingredients
● Add the seasoning to the water and adjust the water level and stir to prevent the
seasoning from settling to the bottom.
● Place the other ingredients on top of the rice after the water level has been adjusted
and mix them into the rice after the rice has finished cooking.
(If the seasoning or other ingredients sink to the bottom, the heat could not be
distributed well within the rice cooking.)
Amount of seasoning and other ingredients
● The proper amount of other ingredients is about 30 to 50% of the amount of rice.
Use a small amount of ingredients when they are oily.
● Use a lesser amount for tamari soy sauce.

Tips for Mixing
★Add the water and seasoning, adjust the amount of water, and
mix well. The meal might not cook properly if the ingredients
settle to the bottom. (When using ingredients that contain a lot
of water, squeeze out the juice and add the juice and
seasoning together.)
★Spread out the ingredients on the top of the rice and do not
mix them in. (Do not mix together even if the instructions on
the ingredients package say to.)
44
★Do not use the timer rice cooking or Keep Warm programs.
Doing so could cause the food to smell unusual or lose quality.
★The amount of ingredients should be about 30 to 50% of the
amount of rice.
(About 45 to 75 g of ingredients per cup of rice)
★Preheat ingredients that easily absorb water.
