If you have any questions regarding this product, then we will give you all the answers to the questions that you may feel in the following:-

Any question?

Question: is the cooking area aluminum or stainless steel?  

Answer:  The cooking pot is Teflon coated aluminum. This cooker works really well. It produces great rice. And allows one to focus on things other than rice.

Question: I have one but the rice seems to stick and sometimes start to burn in the bottom. I do follow the directions. Any suggestions? 

Answer: When cooking basmati brown rice, I learned to ignore the written instructions as they always left the rice under cooked and dry. Instead, I rinse the rice thoroughly a few times then add water until its surface is 1/2″ above the top of the rice. This consistently results in rice that is moist without being mushy.

Question: How big is the vegetable tray inside? Can I fit a small bag of baby carrots inside?

Answer: I think a bag of baby carrots would fit perfectly.

Question: Is there a minimum number of cups of rice to be cooked? Can we just cook one cup of rice?

Answer: Yes, you can cook as little as 1/2 cup. If you just want to steam vegetables you don’t have to cook any rice, just add fluid in the bottom and place the basket on top with your vegetables in it.

Question: Is the steaming tray BPA free?

Answer: The steam tray is constructed of BPA free plastic.

Question: Does this model have a timer for the rice? ie tell the time until done? 

 Answer:  The first part of the cook cycle (bringing it to a boil, I imagine) doesn’t exactly have a timer, but it is more of a loading symbol. Then after it has been heated all the way, a countdown begins as to when all the water is absorbed. I can attest that the times are indeed different depending on how much you put in it. The beep made when it was finished scared the crap out of me the first time though! It’s really loud. Hope this helped!

Question: Does it shut off automatically and go to the Warm mode when finished cooking?

Answer: yes it does…but you will have to shut it off from there unless you want it to sit on keep warm for 10+ hours.

Question: Confused: Is the measurement for one cup of rice the WHOLE measuring cup or just to where it says 3/4?

Answer: The “1 cup” measuring cup it comes with is 3/4 of a cup. If you only fill it to the 3/4 line, it will not be enough for the amount of water used. Likewise, if you use your standard 1 cup measuring cup, it will be too much. If you lose the cup it comes with, using a regular 3/4 measuring cup will be the same amount as if you used a full “1 cup” of the one it came with. Confusing, I know. Hopefully, that makes sense.

Question: Does it cook quinoa easily?

Answer: Absolutely! Just likes you’re cooking rice. I put a tad more water though, probably 25% more than called for so that it comes out a little more tender and fluffier. Other than that it’s really no different than cooking the rice. For awesome quinoa add seasoning to your water or better yet, both!

Question: Can this be used as a slow cooker like the larger model? If so how?

 Answer: I think you can use this rice cooker as a slow cooker. I made bean soup. Started it on steam for about 20 min and then switched it to keep warm. when I checked the soup in the warm setting after 20 min, it was barely simmering. so I know it cooks low and slow. experiment with it. u can do it! 

Question: how long does it take to steam the rice? 

 Answer: I make about 2 cups at a time and it takes about 20 mins. Then switches to warm and will keep warm up to 10 hrs.

Question: Can you remove or detach the cover of the cooker to clean it? Overall, how easy is it to clean this cooker? 

Answer: It is very easy to clean it. The inside is removable. The lid is not. We haven’t had a problem cleaning the lid, however, I guess you could remove the lid if you wanted to by removing the screw (Phillips’ head)… hope this helps…

 

>>>If you have any questions, please let us know in the comment section of this post<<<

Question: I have this cooker but rice starch gets up in between the lower metal lid and the top it is attached to. Can the lower metal lid come off for cleaning? 

Answer: Yes, the lower one can be removed, it has the plastic ring in the center that allows for a pull and push removal

Question: Does it contain the rice paddle? Or I need to buy it again? 

 Answer: It comes with a plastic one works well enough. Also has a space to store it right on the side.

Question: Is the 8 cup steamer too small to do a well-sized artichoke in or a few corn cobs? 

 Answer: It will fit a large artichoke or 2 corn cobs.

 

>>>If you have any questions, please let us know in the comment section of this post<<<

Question: Can you just steam vegetables or do you have to steam rice in order to steam vegetables?

Answer: Yes you can just steam.

Question: I have a six-inch ledge I would like to put my rice cooker on. Is this really 9.3 inches wide on the bottom? Are the little feet in the middle?

Answer: Mine would need about 7.25 inches of the shelf to set on. 6 would not work. The feet are inset a little but not down that much.

Question: Does it have a retractable cord?

Answer: No, it doesn’t have a retractable cord.

 

Question: Does it come with the rice utensil to serve the rice once made?

Answer: Yes, it has what AROMA calls a “serving spatula” which can be used to stir the rice to “distribute any remaining moisture” for best results and also of course to serve the rice. It’s 7.5 inches long and the serving end is just under 3 inches wide at widest point. Hope this helps.

 

Question: Are the inside pieces dishwasher safe?

Answer: I routinely wash the inner bowl in the dishwasher with no problems.

 

Question: making sushi rice

Answer: That’s what I bought it for … works perfectly.

 

Question: Is it marked 8 cups on the cooker liner?

Answer: No, inside it only goes up to 4. It is an 8 cup rice cooker because once you cook 4 cups of rice it expands to the size of eight cups. Hope that helps

 

 

>>>If you have any questions, please let us know in the comment section of this post<<<

Question: can you just steam a piece of fish or crab legs with no rice

Answer: Yes, all you have to do is put water in the bottom of the cooker and your food in the top tray to steam. Since I purchased this, there is now an excellent video which shows you the different things you can do with this rice cooker. I can’t wait to order one for myself!

 

Question: I have this cooker. I add water: rice in 2:1 ratio. Whenever I cook over 2 cups of rice, it spills water and makes a big mess. Am I doing it wrong?

Answer: The unit comes with a measuring cup. This cup measure is not the same as a one cup liquid measure. Be sure to use the cup provided so as not to overfill.
