Why Should I Use A Rice Cooker To Cook Rice?
The rice cooker is an efficient and time-saving kitchen appliance that cooks perfect rice every time. Many people have difficulty cooking rice on the stove because the burner cannot be turned down to a low enough simmer for the steaming portion of cooking rice. The result is rice that is scorched or burned. With a Zojirushi rice cooker, rice will be fluffy and delicious. Plus, you won’t have to stand over the stove while it cooks. Just set it and leave. All Zojirushi rice cookers have durable nonstick inner cooking pans for quick and easy cleaning.
How Is Rice Measured? What Does The Capacity Mean?
Every Zojirushi rice cooker comes with a plastic measuring cup. This cup has a capacity of 6-ounces, or about 3/4 of a U.S. measuring cup. The capacity of the rice cooker is counted in these 6-ounce cups of uncooked rice. One 6-ounce cup of raw rice makes about 3, 6-ounce cups of cooked rice. Do not confuse the rice cooker measuring cup with U.S. measuring cups; they are different. All Zojirushi rice cookers come with a special measuring cup and nonstick rice spatula for serving. The capacity of a rice cooker is stated in the numbers of 6-ounce cups of raw rice.
