COOKING RICE

Rice Cooker - easiest method

Start 1 hour before we meet

1. Measure rice. Using the cup provided, measure one cup of dry rice per person.

2. Rinse rice. Remove bowl from rice cooker unit. Add pre-measured rice to bowl. Add cool water to bowl. Drain water ensuring you don't spill any rice into your sink. Repeat until water runs clear.

3. Add water. Fill the bowl with cool water to the line on the inside of the rice bowl that corresponds with the amount of rice you measured in step 1.

4. Cook rice. Wipe the bottom of the rice bowl. Place bowl into rice cooker. Place lid on bowl. Press the on button.

5. Additional steam. The rice cooker will automatically switch to warm when done cooking. Unplug the rice cooker and let sit for 10 minutes.

6. Fluff rice. Using the provided rice paddle, gently lift and turn rice to fluff. Do not mash rice.

Important: Do not remove lid when cooking rice. Use only use the provided spoon in the rice bowl. The non-stick coating is delicate. Anything hard like metal utensils or scouring sponges will damage the coating.

Stovetop method

Complete this step 1.5 hours before we meet.

1. Measure rice. Measure 1 cup of dry rice per person.

2. Rinse rice. Add rice to pot. Add cool water to pot. Drain water ensuring you don't spill any rice into your sink. Repeat until water runs clear. 

3. Soak rice. Drain water completely from rice. Use a sieve if you have one. Add 1.2 cups of water per dry cup of rice from step 1. Let sit for 5 minutes.

4. Bring to boil. Place pot on stove on medium heat. Place tight fitting lid on pot. Bring water to a boil. Only peek to see if boiling, otherwise keep lid on!

5. Simmer. Once boiling, turn heat to low until water is absorbed. Peek quickly, lid must be kept on tight to cook properly. When the water is no longer bubbling to the top, your rice is done.

6. Let steam. Remove from stove and keep lid on. No peeking! Let sit for 10 minutes.

7. Fluff rice. Using a rice paddle or spatula, gently lift and turn rice to fluff. Do not mash rice.
