Rice Cooker Comparison
Unsure how the basic rice cooker differs from the digital rice cooker? Would you like to do more than "just" cook rice and steam vegetables? Is the mini enough to feed a large family with rice?
Let us show you our variety so you know which rice cooker meets all of your needs!
Because cooking rice shouldn't be harder than pressing a button!
Ideal rice cooker for beginners
Our rice cooker is simple to use. Simply insert the plug into the socket, put the desired amount of rice with the appropriate amount of water into the rice cooker and switch the toggle from warm mode to cook mode. As soon as the rice is cooked, the rice cooker switches automatically into keep-warm mode.
Our electric rice cooker is the ideal rice cooker for beginners and prepares you not only husked rice but also whole grain rice perfectly. Next to various types of rice, it can also steam vegetables, fish or meat while the rice is cooking.
With an output of 500 watts, our rice cooker is also very high performance, cooking rice more evenly and faster than comparable models. Husked rice for one person, for example, is cooked after about 14-15 minutes.
You don't need a rice cooker to cook rice. A rice cooker has many benefits though. A few are listed here:
- Better quality results: texture and consistency of the rice is better.
- You don't have to pay attention: Once you switch it on you can easily go prepare other parts of your dinner, go for a run or watch a movie. The rice will be perfect and kept warm.
- Ease of use: perfect rice at the touch of a button
- Special functions for different kinds of rice e.g. sushi or if you want crispy rice for a thadig.
Don't take our word for it Trust those who love and eat rice the most! In countries like China, Thailand, Japan and Korea, rice cookers are the norm, not the exception.
You can steam vegetables of other food like fish in your rice cooker with or without rice beeing cooked at the same time.
If you want to steam food without rice, we recommend filling the water to the same height as you stacked food in the steamer inlay. I.e. if you stack 2 cm of food in the steamer inlay, then you should fill about 2 cm of water in the pot.
If you would like to steam food while cooking rice, just use the same amount of rice and water as you usually do.
Rice should always be washed before cooking. This way any remaining impurities are removed. But washing will also improve taste and texture. When you wash rice you will find that the water turns murky due to the starch being washed off. We recommend doing this 2-3 times. This way you avoid overly sticky rice.
For our Basic Rice Cooker we recommend a rice-water ratio of 1 : 1.5 for white rice and 1 : 2.5 for wholegrain a.k.a. brown rice.
If you are using one of our digital rice cookers, we recommend: Rice-water in a ratio of 1 : 1.25 for white rice and 1 : 1.75 for wholegrain rice.
