SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
SHORT CORD INSTRUCTIONS
1. A short power-supply cord (or detachable power-supply cord) should be used to
reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
2. Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may
be used if care is exercised in their use.
3. If a longer detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used:
a. The marked electrical rating of the cord set or extension cord should be at least
as great as the electrical rating of the appliance; and
b. The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
4. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a groundingtype 3-wire cord.

● Odor from Keeping Warm
XX Not cleaning the inner pot and other cooker parts allows bacteria to spread and cause the rice to develop
an odor. In this case, fill the inner pot with a mixture of water and vinegar, disinfect the inner pot by heating
it for approximately 15 minutes, and then thoroughly rinse the pot. (Ratio: Water to the plain rice scale’s
2-serving level and 1 tablespoon of vinegar)
XX Don’t forget to clean the lid regularly to get rid of debris and buildup.
● Getting Rid of the Odor when Cooking Old Rice
When cooked, old rice tends to develop an unpleasant smell that only gets worse when kept warm.
To cook old rice and prevent it from developing an odor, soak the rice in water and add a drop of vinegar on
the evening before cooking it. Rinse it clean and, on the next day, rinse it once more using lukewarm water
just before cooking it.
● Storing Rice (determines the flavor of rice)
※ Once cooked, old or dried rice can develop poor texture, end up undercooked, and even become smelly
when kept warm.

Rice should be purchased in small quantities between 5kg and 10kg and should be
consumed within two weeks of breaking the packaging seal.
2. To prevent bugs from mixing in with the rice, add cloves of garlic inside the rice container.
※ Freshly polished rice can quickly become dry unless stored properly.

complete. The Warm indicator lights up as well.
• In addition, the display indicates how long the cooker has
been in Warm mode.
※Once the rice is cooked, make sure to fluff and mix it right away.
Leaving cooked rice as it is without fluffing or mixing will cause
the rice to harden, discolor, and develop an unpleasant smell.
※Keeping rice warm for an extended period of time can cause
the rice to discolor and develop an odor. Try not to keep the rice
warm for longer than 12 hours.
※The WARM button is only active in Plain mode.
※If you have selected Porridge mode, the cooker will not
automatically enter Warm mode once finished cooking. Please

Preset Precautions
• Rice can quickly turn sour in the summer months. Therefore, the preset timer should not be set to
more than 10 hours.
• Cooking old (seal broken long ago) or dried out rice can produce an overcooked or unevenly cooked
result.
• Starting Preset cooking while the inner pot is still hot or warm (from the previous cooking) will cause
the rice to turn sour. Allow the inner pot to cool down sufficiently before using the Preset option.

Keeping Warm
Operating Instructions
Warming Precautions
1 Fluff and mix the rice and gather into a pile at the center
of the inner pot.
• Fluff and mix the rice sufficiently and gather into a pile at the
center of the inner pot to prevent the rice in contact with the
inner pot surface from drying out.
Do not allow the rice to come in
contact with the inner lid.
2 Do not leave the rice spatula inside the cooker while the
rice is kept warm.
• Keeping rice warm with the spatula placed inside the
cooker can harden and discolor the rice and even cause
the rice to develop an odor.
※In particular, wooden rice spatulas are not as hygienic and will
cause the rice to smell.
3 The maximum recommended warming time is 12 hours.
• Keeping rice warm in excess of 12 hours can leave the rice
tasting flavorless and/or cause the rice to discolor or smell.
Securely close the lid before warming.
● Tip
If you need to keep rice warm for more than 12 hours,
put the rice in a separate container and store it in the freezer.
When you are ready to serve, take out the rice from the freezer
and reheat it in a microwave.

Care and Maintenance
Care
Unplug the power cord before cleaning, do not spray water directly on the product, and do not use
benzene or thinner to clean.
Failure to keep the cooker clean is one of the causes of rice developing an odor while being kept warm.
1Inner Pot
• Do not use a rough or metallic scrubber or
brush or harsh abrasives. These products
can strip or damage the coating. Use a dish
detergent with soft cloth or a sponge to clean.
3Inside of the Cooker
• Take out the inner pot and remove all debris
and buildup from the bottom surface. Debris
and buildup on the automatic temperature
sensor and the heating plate prevent the
cooker from accurately monitoring the
temperature, resulting in poor performance and
even product malfunction. Debris and buildup
are also fire hazards. Clean using a dish towel
that has been soaked in water and wrung out.
Take caution not to damage the automatic
temperature sensor.
※Do not clean the inside of the cooker immediately
after cooking or keeping rice warm. There is risk of
getting burned.
2Water Collector
• Detach the water collector and clean. Wash
the detached water collector using a neutral
dish detergent and a sponge.
4Steam Vent
• Rotate the vent in the “Open” direction and
detach from the cooker. Thoroughly clean
the inside of the vent. Starting from “A”, line
up the three protrusion points to the three
insert points and rotate the vent in the “Close”
direction to reassemble.

5Accessories
• Wash the rice spatula and measuring cup
clean and then dry them out completely before
storing.

• Simply pull off the inner lid from the cooker as
shown in the diagram.
• With the side with the letters facing you, push the

dry out or even get burned.
※ Make sure to thoroughly mix the rice again after it has been reheated.
※ Repeatedly using the reheat feature or reheating only a small amount of rice can cause the rice to burn
and stick to the bottom of the pot.

● Melanoizing
Cooking rice with a Cuchen electric rice cooker leaves rice at the bottom of the pot slightly brown in
color. This is known as melanoizing and is the result of adding savory flavor and aroma to the rice. If using
the Preset option, starch released from the rice can settle to the bottom of the pot and lead to more
noticeable melanoizing.
