operating instructions
__________________________________________________
1) Wash the rice in a container other than the rice pot. You will
notice that during the first wash water is nearly the color of milk.
It contains starch that makes the rice sticky. Continue to wash until
water is relatively clear.
2) Put the washed rice in the cooking pot. Fill with water until it covers the rice by approximately 1”. Use one cup of water to each cup of rice. The exact proportions change with the type of rice to be cooked. Different kinds of rice absorb water at different rates. Do not
use the rice cooker to boil foods with high acidity or alkalinity—it will
damage the pot.

CAPACITY
DO NOT EXCEED LIMIT
MARKED ON POT
3) Dry pot exterior and place gently in the body, rotating it once
in position to be sure the rice pot is completely in contact with
the heating element. To ensure that the rice pot is not dented,
gently rock the pot from side to side when placed in the unit.
Be sure to keep the outside of the pot clean.
4) With the rice pot in position, plug the cord into an appropriate
wall outlet.
5) To start the rice cooker, press the on/off button on the front
control panel. The power light and the hold light will come on. to begin the cooking cycle press the cook button. The cook light will come on and the hold light will go off. To ensure evenly cooked rice stir rice at least twice during cooking cycle.
6) When the rice is cooked the cook light will go off and the hold light will come on. Let the rice remain covered in the unit to steam for
another 10 minutes– rice “cures” and becomes more flavorful.
