How Do Rice Cookers Work?

Add dried rice and water, then appliance should automatically set the time to cook depending on the amount you’ve added.


Powered by the thermocouple, the heating element gets up to a temperature for the water to boil, allowing the steam to rise and cook the rice.


The built-in sensors will then revert the thermostat to warm until all of the water has been steamed.


The rice is cooked by steam.


When all the water is gone, this will trigger the thermostat to turn off as all the water will have been absorbed by the rice.


The great thing is there is no guesswork involved in the process, once the correct ratios have been added to the cooker, perfect results will ensue every time.
