  • I always do a 3:1 ratio. Bring the water to a boil, add rice, let it boil for a bit, and then bring to medium. I figure a bunch of water steams out. My rice always turns out cooked.

    If you are doing whole wheat rice do a 3.5:1 ratio or 4:1 ratio

  • I don't do the 2-1 thing in my rice cooker my standard batch of rice is 6 of the scoops water and 4 scoops rice or 3-2 and I stir half way and then turn off when it is done vs the keep warm setting

  • Yes... it's definitely 'follow the instructions that came with it' issue. You're not adding enough water.

    The rice cooker turns off automatically when the water's all absorbed/evaporated and the temperature climbs rapidly. If the rice isn't cooked when the water runs out, that's not the cooker's fault.
