Beginners Guide: RICE COOKERS

There is nothing more disappointing than realising that the rice on the stove is burnt or worse still has turned into a gooey mess.  For so many people, the task of making rice is one fraught with difficulty and despairing hope. But with a “Cook Japan” rice cooker it doesn’t have to be this way…

in Japan, and elsewhere across Asia, a simple-to-use hi-tech computer controlled rice cooker is a sight in every kitchen, ensuring perfect rice at the push of a button every time. Cook Japan rice cookers have the functionality and fuzzy logic technology you would expect to find in a Japanese rice cooker

Rice Cooker

Does it do anything else?

Not only does the Cook Japan rice cooker make great rice, it also has a range of other cooking functions and programmes, a 24-hour timer, and automatically switching to “keep warm” when the cooking cycle is finished.

So, there’s nothing to stop you using it as a slow-cooker or steamer, to make porridge, congee, soup, and also to braise.  This makes it a great multi-purpose rice cooker so there’s really no limit to what you can make. 

So how does it work then?

By using computer controlled technology, commonly referred to as fuzzy logic, the rice cooker is able to make adjustments to both temperature and cooking time to cook perfect rice, for example if the rice is too hot and heating too quickly the heating element will be turned down slightly to balance this.  With fuzzy logic the cooking process is improved in 3 key ways:

  1. The temperature sensor control is more accurate and can therefore allow for fine adjustments to the cooking temperature
  2. The heat distribution and conduction around the entire bowl produces more evenly cooked food
  3. The computer can instantly strengthen or weaken the heat ensuring a controlled cooking process
