How to Use a Rice Cooker

How to Use a 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.

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 and abrasive cleaners 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!

    We have 4 japanese restaurants who use these with about 3-4 at each store and I've had 8 break on me, in the beginning we thought it was a voltage problem because these cookers kept shutting off then after we added more breakers and better power these still kept breaking, never again.
    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry these rice cookers are breaking on you; a Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly!

    I've purchase many of these rice cookers. My experience is that they don't last very long.The last two that I've purchased lasted less than two months. They start to take a long time to cook the rice, up to 50 minutes for white rice. I would recommend buying a different product.

    Junk. Sushi is 15% of our total sales in a $2M restaurant and these rice cookers didn't even make it a month. We bought two and they both broke.
    We appreciate your review, Chris! A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you shortly about this problem.

    Great rice cooker! Cooked evenly and quickly. Problem is we bought two of these and a little over a year the first one died and then a month later the second died! I would have thought these commercial rice cookers would've lasted years. It's barely been a year and a half!
    We appreciate your feedback! We’re sorry this didn’t work well for you! Please remember our Customer Solutions team is happy to help when issues arise.

    We bought 3 rice cookers for Asian restaurant. 2 are broken after using for 4 months. Talked to manufacturer to replace with new ones since they are under warranty. I was asked me to send products to them with my own shipping cost to get fixed. Wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
    We appreciate your feedback! We’re sorry this didn’t work well for you! Please remember our Customer Solutions team is happy to help should you have any issues.

    We purchased this item in September and it has stopped working in 7 months, when I reached out to customer service about the warranty replacement, they wanted me to ship the unit back at my cost and wait for it to be repaired and ship it back to me. Not only is the rice cooker crap but the warranty is even worse. I will never purchase anything from this website again. They expect you to put your restaurant kitchen on hold for repair. When I opened my new restaurant I purchased all my equipment from them, it is a shame that they are losing a customer over a rice cooker.
    We appreciate your review, Sam! If you are looking for a recommendation on a different rice cooker, please contact our Customer Solutions team.

    I am very disappointed. I ordered 2 of this on Oct 12, and after couple of use one does not work. So I worry about the other one can suddenly stop working, that means my restaurant will be stopped. I need customer service to replace this one.
    Thank you for the feedback, Jesang! We really are sorry that this broke for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will be contacting you shortly.

    I bought this rice cooker for my restaurant.. It work great so far,, cook quickly the rice looks yummy and i love it so much
    We are very happy we sale a lot off rice in our business white one and yellow rice. It cooked fast and with a great flavor. We recommend
    This rice cooker is Amazing the box was pretty torn up was discouraging and was a concern, the rice cooker also had a dent on the side of the pan but nothing that will prevent it from the use of it but overall it is wonderful rice cooked.
    A little smaller than the older version. The pot fits nicely into the old pot. Overall dimensions are smaller by a lot though so it's more space efficient. The big reason why it doesn't get 5 stars is the pot coating. The old coating that Proctor Silex used was a lot better. If you turned the old pot upside down, rice would fall out in a pot shaped chunk. It didn't even needed to be washed. You just had to wipe it with a dry paper towel. The new pot needs to be scrubbed. If you're going to make multiple pots, I would suggest a net, otherwise known as a rice napkin, to dump the rice into another container so the pot is easier to clean. It's still reliable.
    Large capacity. No issues with cooking. My lanky complaint is that when the rice is done cooking it automatically switches into “warm” mode, which actually cooks the rices more and doesn’t actually just keep it warm. If I don’t get to the machine when the light switches from “cook” to “warm”, the rice gets over cooked and crunchy on the bottom.
    I use this rice cooker as a warmer instead of cooker. We’ve found out that even if you use rice that is cold, it has the capacity to warm the rice compared to a just warmer item. I’ve tried to cook rice in this item and it doesn’t cook the rice better than a gas rice maker. It’s the ideal product to keep warm the rice, construction is durable, I’ve bought 10 units and they’ve lasted over a year and counting.
    The Proctor Silex Rice Cookers have never let us down. We use two different sizes and they are in use everyday 12 hours a day. I have tried other brands but at the end of the day the Proctor Silex makes perfect rice, holds consistent temperature and stands up to the wear and tear of a fast paced Asian restaurant.
    We order regularly from this website. This rice cooker was purchased on 10/27/2017 and it has stopped working already. The rice cooker only cooks rice half way through then stop cooking. Not happy with this rice cooker.
    We appreciate your review, Sherry. We wish this Proctor Silex 37560R 60 Cup (30 Cup Raw) Electric Rice Cooker / Warmer - 120V would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    We brought 3 of these to pair with our 48 cup rice cooker, we noticed these cookers take much longer to cook the rice completely.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    These are good rice cookers, for awhile. Like alot of the other reviews say, it will burn out after heavy usage. I have yet to meet an electric rice cooker that doesn't burn out eventually though.
    We used to have to make batch after batch of rice when cooking for 100+ people, this included lots of stirring and pot watching! Things are so much more simple with this electric rice cooker. Just add the water, the rice, and plug it in. It automatically switches itself to warm when the rice is done. No more burned or clumpy rice!
    Very nice unit, unfortunately we ordered the wrong size. The 60 cup is big and definitely larger than our needs. We will be returning it to purchase the 40 cup model as we need the smaller footprint. Not too many cooker/warmers out this and this one meets all of our expectations.
    This rice cooker is a super star! We have two of them and use daily to cook both white and brown rice and it does an awesome job. Definitely recommend
