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!
Perfectly cooked rice
For particularly gentle preparation and perfectly cooked rice, the Mini Digital Rice Cooker has a 7-phase cooking technology developed for rice. The Digital Mini Rice Cooker automatically activates the correct cooking phase one after the other: preheating, water absorption at medium temperature, heating phase, cooking phase, nutrient protection, short water absorption and finally the warming phase. In this way, nutrients are retained and the aroma can unfold in the best possible way.
Anticipation is the greatest joy!
Thanks to the timer function, you can now plan exactly when our delicious rice will be on your table - up to 24 hours in advance. Simply set the desired time, add rice and water and press the start button. Thanks to the handy keep-warm function, your rice will never burn again, and you can keep yourself occupied with other things while the rice is cooking. As soon as the grain is cooked, the rice cooker switches to keep warm mode. The digital display tells you how long the rice has been kept warm.
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.
If you are using one of our digital rice cookers, we recommend: Use rice-water in a ratio of 1 : 1.25 for white rice. For wholegrain rice use 1 : 1.75 with the mini rice cooker or 1 : 2 with the big one.
In a regular pot the ratios are 1 : 1.5 for white rice and 1 : 2 for wholegrain rice.
