TROUBLESHOOTING
Because rice variations differ in their make-up, results may vary depending upon
the type of rice being used. Below are some troubleshooting tips to help you
achieve the desired consistency.
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Rice is too dry/hard
after cooking.
If rice is dry or hard/chewy when the rice
cooker switches to “Keep-Warm” mode,
additional water and cooking time will soften
the rice. Depending on how dry the rice is,
add ½ to 1 tumbler of water and stir through.
Close the lid and press down the cook switch
to “Cook” mode. When the rice cooker
switches to “Keep-Warm” mode, open the lid
and stir the rice to check the consistency.
Repeat as necessary until rice is soft and
moist.
Rice is too moist/soggy
after cooking.
If rice is still too wet or soggy when the rice
cooker switches to “Keep-Warm” mode, use
the serving spatula to stir the rice. This will
redistribute the bottom (moistest) part of the
rice as well as release excess moisture. Close
the lid and allow the rice cooker to remain on
“Keep-Warm” mode for 10-30 minutes as
needed, opening the lid and stirring
periodically to release excess moisture.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Basic safety precautions should always be followed when using electrical
appliances, including the following:
Important: Read all instructions
carefully before first use.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use the
handles or knobs.
3. Use only on a level, dry and
heat-resistant surface.
4. To protect against electrical shock,
do not immerse cord, plug or the
appliance in water or any other
liquid.
5. Close supervision is necessary when
the appliance is used by or near
children.
6. Unplug from outlet when not in use
and before cleaning. Allow unit to
cool before putting on or taking off
parts and before cleaning the
appliance.
7. Do not operate any appliance with
a damaged cord or plug or after
the appliance malfunctions or has
been damaged in any manner.
Contact Aroma customer service for
examination, repair or adjustment.
8. The use of accessory attachments
not recommended by Aroma
Housewares may result in fire,
electrical shock or injury.
9. Do not use outdoors.
10. Do not let cord touch hot surfaces
or hang over the edge of a counter
or table.
11. Do not place on or near a hot
burner or in a heated oven.
12. Do not use the appliance for other
than its intended use.
13. Extreme caution must be used when
moving the appliance containing
hot water or other liquids.
14. Do not touch, cover or obstruct the
steam vent on the top of the rice
cooker as it is extremely hot and
may cause scalding.
15. Use only with a 120V AC power
outlet.
16. Always unplug from the base of the
wall outlet. Never pull on the cord.
17. The rice cooker should be operated
on a separate electrical circuit from
other operating appliances. If the
electrical circuit is overloaded with
other appliances, the appliance
may not operate properly.

inner cooking pot is dry prior to use.
If the cooking pot is returned to
cooker when wet, it may damage
or cause the product to
malfunction.
19. Use extreme caution when opening
the lid during or after cooking. Hot
steam will escape and may cause
scalding.
20. Rice should not be left in the inner
pot with the “Keep-Warm” function
on for more than 24 hours.
21. To prevent damage or deformation,
do not use the inner pot on a
stovetop or burner.
22. To disconnect, turn any control to
“OFF,” then remove plug from wall
outlet.
23. To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
cook only in the removable

HOW TO USE
COOKING GUIDE
Before First Use:
1. Read all instructions and important safeguards.
2. Remove all packaging materials and make sure items are received in good
condition.
3. Tear up all plastic bags as they can pose a risk to children.
4. Wash lid and accessories in warm, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
5. Remove inner pot from rice cooker and clean with warm, soapy water. Rinse and
dry thoroughly before returning to cooker.
6. Wipe body clean with a damp cloth.
• Do not use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads.
• Do not immerse the rice cooker base, cord or plug in water at any time.
To Cook Rice:
1. Using the measuring tumbler provided, measure out the desired amount of rice.
One full, level tumbler of uncooked rice will roughly double in volume once
cooked. The measuring tumbler provided is larger than the typical rice cooker
measuring cup. The measuring tumbler included is 900mL, which is equal to 5
standard 180mL rice cooker cups.
NOTE:
These measurements are not equal to a standard US cup, which is equal to 240mL.
The standard rice cooker measuring cup size (180mL) is equal to roughly ¾ of
a standard US cup.
2. Rinse rice in a separate container until the water becomes relatively clear.
3. Place rinsed rice in the inner pot.
4. Using the measuring tumbler provided or the water measurement lines located
inside the inner pot, add the appropriate amount of water. For added
convenience, a “Rice/Water Measurement” chart is located on pages 5 and 6 of
this instruction manual.
5. For softer rice, allow rice to soak for 10-20 minutes.
6. Making sure that the exterior of the inner pot is clean, dry and free of debris, set the
inner pot in the rice cooker. Close the lid securely and plug the power cord into an
available outlet.
NOTE:
To avoid a loss of steam and a longer cooking time, do not open the lid at any
point during the cooking process.
7. Press down on the cook switch. The “Cook” light will illuminate. When the rice is
finished, the unit will automatically switch to “Keep-Warm” mode and the “Warm”
light will illuminate.
8. After cooking, allow rice to stand for 5-10 minutes without opening the lid. This will
ensure that rice is cooked thoroughly.
9. The rice cooker will remain in “Keep-Warm” mode until it is unplugged. Be sure to
unplug the cord from the wall outlet when not in use.
