Capacity Sizes (4 to 20 Cups Cooked Rice)

There are two ways to measure capacity sizes. The Japanese rice cooker manufacturers measure in uncooked cup of rice whereas most of the American counterparts do in cooked rice cup.

So this Hamilton Beach 37536 can cook up to 10 cups of uncooked rice, yielding 20 cups of cooked rice. Now have I got you thoroughly confused? The bottom line is that the 10 cup size is big enough for small to large families as you can cook a minimum amount of rice, for instance, 2 cups of uncooked rice for your everyday meals. Then there is also capacity to cook up to 10 cups when you have company or host a party.

I want to bring to your attention that the capacity sizes advertised by the manufacturers are for white rice. If you cook brown rice, the capacity size might be a tad smaller.

Conventional Heating

This rice cooker is a basic digital rice cooker that doesn’t come in with fuzzy logic or other advanced heating technology. The rice or foods are heated through a heating plate on the bottom of the cooking vessel. The inner cooking pot is where you would put rice or other foods in when it’s ready to cook. The heat is generated and steam created to heat through the rice and foods.

Easy to Use and to Clean

(Back to Top)

The inner cooking pot and the inner lid are removable for easy cleaning. In fact, the inner lid is also dishwasher safe. So you can remove the lid after each cooking and put in your dishwasher with all the other dirty dishes.

Easy one -touch button takes the simplicity to a new height. Decide what you are going to cook, gather and measure all the ingredients. Close the lid and plug the electric cord. Choose a menu setting. That’s it.
