Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What's the difference between rice cookers and rice warmers?
Rice cookers are exclusively meant to cook rice, and they tend to be smaller than rice warmers. Rice warmers are meant to keep cooked rice at foodsafe holding and serving temperatures for a period of time. Rice cookers / warmers are capable of both functions.
What's the ideal ratio of rice to water to use in this rice cooker?
Different types of rice require different ratios of rice and water in order to cook properly. Check out our Rice Cooker Buying Guide for information on cooking white rice, brown rice, quinoa, and more!

How to Use a Rice Cooker

WebstaurantStore carries many rice cookers and warmers designed for cooking rice to perfection! Watch this video for step by step instructions on how to cook rice in the convenient and efficient Panasonic SR-42HZP 23 cup rice cooker!

Looking to cook rice quickly and consistently? Does your rice cook uneven or stick to your pots and pans? Well, look no further! With our wide selection of cookers, warmers, combination cooker/warmers, and sushi rice containers, you’ll have no trouble finding the right unit to suit your needs. Plus, we have accessories that can make using your rice cooker even easier. This video will show you step-by-step instructions on how to cook rice in our Panasonic 23-cup rice cooker. Rice cookers can be used to cook all types of rice, including but not limited; white, brown, parboiled or rice in the husk, Indian-style such as basmati or jasmine and quinoa. We offer a great selection of rice and rice cooking accessories. Cooking rice in your rice cooker is easy and consistent. Follow these simple steps and tips for the perfect steamed rice every time! The first step when using a rice cooker is to measure the correct amount of rice into a bowl. If your recipe calls for standard U.S. cups, you will want to adjust your measurements accordingly, but otherwise, you should use the rice cup that came with your rice cooker. This measuring cup is based on a Chinese cup measurement and is equal to about 3/4 of a standard U.S. cup measurement. For most types of rice, the second step is to thoroughly rinse the grains until the water runs clear. The purpose of rinsing is to remove any pesticides that may be present, give your rice a more consistent texture, and lessen the chance that your rice cooker will bubble over. Do note that while rinsing your rice is generally the rule, it’s important to read the packaging. Some rice comes enriched with water-soluble vitamins and minerals such as iron or thiamin that will dissolve if it is washed prior to cooking. After rinsing, transfer the rice from the bowl to the inner pan of your rice cooker. Before transferring the rice, you might want to line the pan with one of our reusable rice napkins as they can greatly reduce cleanup time and maximize water drainage for fluffier cooked rice. The next step is to add water to the pan using the same measuring cup you used to measure the rice. Many rice cookers come with graduated marks on the inner pan indicating how much rice and water should be added. However, the general rule in U.S. standard cups is to add 1 ½ cups of water per 1 cup of rice, or in the case of unwashed rice, 2 cups of water per 1 cup of rice. This can vary based on the type of rice you’re cooking and how moist you prefer it, so for more specific measurements, check out the chart in our rice cooker buying guide. Place the inner pan in the cooker. At this point, some people will let their rice soak for 30 minutes. You can also add a bit of butter, salt, oil, or even bay leaves or cardamom pods to your cooker to enhance the flavor of your rice. Once the inner pan is in place, plug in your rice cooker. Press the switch to turn it on. Generally, there will be a light on the front of the unit that turns on when cooking is in progress. While your rice is cooking, do not remove the lid as this may cause your rice to dry out. When this particular unit is finished cooking, the switch will pop up and the light on the front of the unit will go out. At this point, you should let your rice rest inside the cooker for at least 15 minutes in keep-warm mode. This will allow your rice to finish cooking and stabilize the water level so that excess moisture steams out of your rice. After 15 minutes, your rice is ready to be served and you can unplug your cooker! Since the inner pan is made of a non-stick material, it’s best to use plastic serving utensils when serving your rice. Try one of our rice ladles that are designed specifically for use with rice and rice cooking equipment! If you used a rice napkin, cleanup takes no more than a minute. If not, you can soak the inner pan in hot water to loosen cooked-on rice, and then clean it with a non-metal brush or sponge. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t use abrasive cleaners or steel wool on the pan because you will ruin its non-stick surface. And that’s it! Now you know how easy it is to cook rice in a rice cooker. As always, thanks for watching, and if you have questions, feel free to use our live chat button.
