[NORM or SCORCH] [1.0-4.0] 70 min
1-4 rice cups (180-720 ml) plain brown rice
189-756 ml cold water (1 cup rice to 1.05 cups water)
Measure the amount of rice using the provided rice measuring cup. Level off with a chopstick or with the back of a knife to precisely measure.
Transfer the measured rice into a fine-mesh strainer stacked on a bowl and fill the bowl with cold water. Quickly pull up the strainer as soon as the bowl is full; discard water.
Place the strainer back in the bowl and refill with clean cold water. Rinse the rice well by rubbing against the mesh using the heel of your hand; discard water. Repeat this step one more time.
After you finish rinsing, soak the rice in a bowl of clean water for about 6 hours. Discard water and drain well; transfer the rinsed rice into the pot.
Using the provided water measuring cup, precisely measure and add the appropriate amount of water into the pot. (Exactly 189 ml of water for 1 rice cup).
Select [RICE COOKING] mode and [BRN] for the brown rice option. Next, select the desired rice finish from [NORM] (Normal) or [SCORCH] (Scorched). Lastly, select the amount of rice you are cooking from [1.0-4.0] rice cups. Press [START] to begin.
Once rice cooking is complete, loosen the cooked rice by cutting the rice into quarters and folding each quarter using a rice spatula. Mix well and serve warm.
Freezing is the best way to store leftover rice without deteriorating its flavor and texture. Make sure to wrap leftover rice in microwave-safe plastic wrap while it is still warm to prevent rice from losing moisture. The flavor will continue to deteriorate even if wrapped, so ensure to freeze once it cools.
When ready to eat, defrost frozen rice in a microwave for about 2-3 minutes. Ensure to keep the wrap during defrosting. A steamer can also be used for defrosting.
For rice cooking, the clock display refers to the completion time (time of day) instead of a countdown timer. Make sure the clock is set prior to using RICE COOKING mode.
You can adjust the amount of water to change the firmness of rice finish. If you prefer softer texture, add 10-20% more water than specified.
The default setting for the total cooking time is 70 minutes with no additional soaking time.
There is no porridge option for the brown rice.
