Customer questions about this product

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.
How can I best maintain the non-stick qualities of this item?
To prevent food from sticking to your non-stick surface, we recommend lightly coating it with oil, wiping off any excess with a soft cloth or napkin. Using sprays on non-stick coatings can actually cause food to stick more readily than using a fat or oil. Sprays can leave a glue-like coating, often missed during the cleaning process, which will begin to build up and cause foods to stick. Additionally, metal utensils should not be used with non-stick surfaces to prevent scratching and damaging the coated surface.
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!

    This rice cooker cooks the rice awesome and it's great when it works. We have had several issues where it will stop working and have had to order two more through the manufacturer who have not been able to diagnose the issue. Hopefully the third one is the charm.
    Love this rice cooker! Works quickly and makes the best sticky rice!! I’ve used other brands and nothing compares or even comes close to this rice cooker!!
    We love the Proctor Silex 37540 40 Cup Rice Cooker. It quickly cooks rice perfectly. We have also discovered that you can make mac and cheese in it, also!
    Love this rice cooker! Whenever we have a big party, we always pull this out and make a big batch of rice. It is so easy to use and makes perfect rice each time!
    This rice cooker is so simple that anyone could make white rice as a professional. Iy aldo can make spanish rice and sticky rice. Very versital unit.
    I don't think this could really cook 20 cups of raw rice. The most I can do is 11 cups. I use brown rice which maybe is different for some reason? Or maybe they're talking about the weird measuring cup that comes with rice cookers that doesn't actually measure cups for some reason. Aside from the fact that I was hoping it would be slightly bigger, it has lasted longer than any other rice cooker I've ever used.
    This worked well while it lasted, but didn't last very long. It began only cooking the rice here and there, we never knew if it was going to actually cook the rice or not. We called Webstaurant and they got us in touch with the company and they sent a new one for free. But that one encountered the same problems within months as well. We bought a gas rice cooker since and love it so much more.

    Ok shipping of the product was fast and timely but my problem is with the functionality of it. I had a rice cooker /warmer that would keep rice on warm for a week without rice going bad but not this cooker . It keeps water in the bottom of the cooker no way for the rice to vent or keep rice dry and fresh. After a day rice begins to smell. Waste of my money. Save your money and buy a more expensive one that actually works for keeping rice longer hours . It also came with a dent.
    Thank you for your review, Angela! We are sorry this rice cooker has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    We have had several different rice cookers through the last few years, There have been good ones and bad ones. This was one of the better ones. Worked fine for us.
    We use this for both sushi rice and brown rice and it tends to cook things unevenly and inconsistently compared to the 60 cup cooker I'd recommend purchasing over this one. It seems like the smaller the batch, the better the rice comes out.
    Our old rice cooker broke so I decided to order one from here. it is perfect size for small restaurant, it cooks rice well and keep it warm all day. it is easy to clean, it looks nice as well. I got it when it was on sale so I was even happier than when I found it here. thank you
    The rice cooker is a good product however it was very big and we need something that is going to save space since we have a small kitchen
    This is a good help on cooking brown rice. Not too big, and not too small. It is just right equipment for lunch rush. Decent price too.
    This rice cooker is top notch! Steams the rice extremely well without drying it out and can hold a lot. It will also let you know when the rice has been cooked to a normal range (can also tell by water level)
