Sup cu/ck/s? Was given this exact rice cooker by a friend. How the fuck do I use it and what the fuck do these symbols mean? Also is it any good?

I can't tell you what that switch does, but otherwise it looks 100% standard.

The big lever looking thing on the front is the on button. you fill the container inside with rice and water. Close the lid, then press that switch down. When it's done cooking the switch will pop pack up and the lights will change. (one light is "keep warm" the other is "cooking"). See that clear plastic thing on the right side near the hinge? You take that off and clean it periodically.

It should have a removeable container inside. Those usually have numbered marks on it. Fill water to the mark matching how many cups of rice you put in it. i.e. if you are cooking 2 cups of rice then fill it up to the "2" mark.

Also, why TF aren't you asking your friend?

Hold the switch to the left to cook rice, right for porridge or similar stuff
The left light says "Heating/Cooking", right says "Warming"

Push down the center switch to start cooking.
It's ready when it clicks up on its own

Thanks for the info guys. What sort of measuring cups does it refer to? Aren't they different from region to region?

Assuming the inner bowl comes off:

1) Put in your desired amount of rice
2) Wash it in the sink in warm/hot water until the water comes out almost clear
3) Drain all water
4) Refill with water just above the rice's surface
5) Put the bowl back in the cooker, close it, and push the switch

About 20-40 minutes later it should be ready.
Maybe longer if you're American since you have a weaker electric voltage, but it'll just flip up like a toaster when it's ready.

The rice cookers I have owned all came with their own measuring cup. It's not identical to a US standard cup but it is close enough. I have used normal US cup measurements with Zoji and Tiger rice cookers and had zero problems.

One example to illustrate.

In a large bowl, combine rice, green pepper, onion, green onions, crawfish tails, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, margarine, parsley, and Cajun seasoning. Pour into rice cooker, and cook for 1 cycle, or until liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Taste, and adjust seasonings.

That sounds amazing. In the case of this cooker that has a rice setting and a "porridge" setting, which of the two would you use?

Also, how does it judge when the cycle is over? Is it simply a case of a timer or does it have a way of measuring the water content of the bowl (e.g. with a humidity sensor or by weight)?

He's clearly a simpleton who cannot read. I did indeed mean different cereal grains. I like rotating between spelt, whole freekeh, bulgur wheat, quinoa and different types of rice during the week and it's a big part of my meals so if I can cook even half of those with this it will be a great plus.

>> No.10601186

>>10601123
Okay, so the principle of rice cookers is extremely simple. It's basically just a big kettle. It brings the rice to a boil and then turns down the heat, making it both safe and easy to use. I would use the rice setting, but most importantly: experiment! That's the best part of cooking.
>>10601135
More embarrassing is illiteracy, and carrying on being a buttmad little shit after you've clearly been outed as such by more than one poster. I prefer 4chan, haven't had an account there in maybe six years, never browse it and am quite frankly tired of the polarization you're trying to promote. You truly need to lurk moar, and I never said you couldn't swear. Just don't be an idiot on purpose, there are dozens of boards on 4chan where that is a much better time for you than the blue ones. Why? Because adults also use them, and they are places where people can discuss and learn. Not just meme. Which incidentally, you're not very good at. Please. Stop.

Just mind that the rice isn't steamed. But do experiment (and I'd recommend cooking meats beforehand unless you're using shellfish, but that's just my paranoia).
Also, you can put soup in it too, you know. Dont have to be rice based. I'd be interested in hearing what you end up doing with it.

>is it any good
Honestly, good rice cookers are hard to get ahold of at the general supermarkets.

Yours is comparatively weak, honestly, but those fuckers will last decades, man.

Good rice cookers usually come from specialty cooking stores, Jap stores, on off of Amazon.

The 12 dollar ones with one switch suck, because they are very finicky with how even they cook, and often burn rice.

Good rice cookers have:
-NON FUCKING STICK INNER POTS THAT DON'T NEED TO BE SOAKED FOR A DAY TO CLEAN that are also removable for said cleaning
-locking lids
-at the very least a warming setting for keeping rice warm for a long ass period of time
-a timer for whatever mode
-mutiple modes, although this is probably one of the least important features to me
-some kind of annunciator/beeper for when it's all finished.

The Industry/Jap home standard rice cooker is a Zojirushi one. I have one and it kicks ass, got it for like $40.

>inb4 use a pot and lid
Yes and use wood stick as well for everything, it will work if you just put some effort in, right?
