the weight of a fully filled rice cooker. Avoid placing the rice
cooker on sinks drain boards or uneven surfaces.
Be careful when setting the rice cooker on surfaces with
delicate finishes such as wood or stone to avoid damages by
hot steam or humidity produced during rice cooking.
Ensure the voltage indicated on the rating plate corresponds to
the mains supply.

based on your model’s max capacity.

soak for 10-20 minutes before cooking.

preventing it from switching to Keep Warm mode. Do not
immediately depress the Cook Switch again after it pops up.

unsatisfactory cooking.
2) Transfer the washed rice into the inner pot and add water. In
general, 1 cup of water to 1 cup of rice. Or refer to the
measuring marks on the inner pot. For example, for 3 cups of
rice, add water till water level reaches the 3 CUP mark.
6) Depress the Cook Switch to start the cooking process. The
cooking light (red) illuminates.
7) Cooking time is determined by the rice cooker. Once cooking is
completed, the switch will pop up and indicator light will switch
to Keep Warm (green). The appliance will stay in keep warm
state until it is disconnected from the electrical outlet.
8) After the unit goes into Keep Warm mode, wait at least 10-15
minutes before opening the lid. This allows the rice to finish
cooking. Cooking brown rice: Follow the normal procedures
but allow rice to stay in Keep Warm mode for 25-30 minutes.
9) When opening lid, be cautious of emitting steam. Make sure
the lid opens away from your face. Use the supplied scoop. Do
not use other tools as not to damage the non-stick surface of
the inner pot. Do not use metal tools.

foil, glass bowls, cups or plates that fit in the steam tray.
Make sure food or receptacles do not exceed the height of the
steam tray and the lid can close properly.
Steaming times vary depending on the size and firmness of the
food to be cooked. Allow 5 to 10 minutes for soft foods like
beans, asparagus and squash. Firmer foods such as corn and
potatoes require 15 to 25 minutes.
Cooking does not stop automatically when steaming. When the
required time has elapsed, turn the cooker off by unplugging
