  1. After the cooking is done, leave the rice in the cooker for an extra 15 minutes to maximize the rest of the steaming cycle for best result.
  2. Loosen the cooked rice with a rice spatula to distribute the moisture in the pot.
  3. When using it for cooking rice porridge, don’t keep it on “warm” for too long as the rice will get mushy.

Pros and Cons

ProsAs a large size as this rice cooker, it is very efficient in energy consumption. It consumes 650 watts per cooking hour and 36 watts for keeping warm. The “keep warm” feature works like a charm for as long as two days (per one customer) without drying the rice on the bottom. Made in Japan ensures the highest quality standard and material. This rice cooker will last for many years to come and would be a wonderful choice for those who eat rice multiple times a day. It’s very simple to use and easy to clean. Rice cooked this rice cooker tastes like what good rice is supposed to.

ConsIf you use broth instead of plain water, it may cause a little bit browning in the bottom.
