Rice Cooking  

Measuring the ingredients - Max capacity of the bowl  

The graduated markings on the inside of the bowl are given in litres and cups,
these are used for measuring the amount of water when cooking rice – 

Fig. 7.

If

cooking other foods, such as pasta, follow the quantities in the recipes.

The plastic cup provided with your appliance is for measuring rice and the table
states the quantity of rice required for the number of servings. 1 level measuring
cup of rice weighs 150 g.

The table below gives a guide to cooking white rice. For best results, we
recommend using ordinary rice rather than ‘easy cook’ type rice which tends to
give a stickier rice and may adhere to the base. With other types of rice, such as
brown or wild rice, the quantities of water need adjustment see the table below. 

To cook 1 cup of white rice (serves 2 small or 1 large portion), use 1 measuring
cup of white rice and then add 1 

1/2

measuring cup of water. With some types

of rice it is normal for a little rice to stick on the base when cooking 1 cup of rice.

The maximum quantity of water + rice should not exceed the 10 cup mark inside
the bowl – 

Fig. 7.

Rinse the rice thoroughly before cooking.

Rinse the rice thoroughly before cooking except for risotto rice.

Note:  When using Arborio risotto rice for milk rice pudding or dessert puddings follow the proportions in
the recipe book as more water is needed.
When cooking milk rice pudding, use Arborio risotto rice instead of pudding rice, as it cooks quicker and
gives better results.  Follow the instructions in the recipes.  Do not cook the rice directly in milk as it will
froth up and boil up through the lid.

The plastic cup is only used
for measuring rice and not
the water (except when
cooking 1 cup of rice).

Rice cooking with delayed start 

It is possible to delay the time the rice starts cooking. 

Select the “Rice cooking” mode. When the ingredients have been placed in the
bowl and the appliance plugged in, briefly press the “Rice cooking” key 

– 

Fig.8

.

The red “Rice cooking” light flashes.

Select the cooking time. When the “rice cooking” light flashes, press the “plus” key
– 

Fig. 9 

or the “minus” key – 

Fig. 10 

to select a cooking time which must elapse

before cooking completes. For instance: it is 1 p.m, I would like my rice cooked at
8 p.m, I have to set “7H” on the time key and wait the “rice cooking” light remains
steady.

You can delay cooking for 9 hours maximum.

Some recommendations
for best results when cooking rice

•  Measure out the rice and rinse it thoroughly under running water in a sieve for

a long time (except for risotto rice such as Arborio rice which should not be
rinsed). Then place the rice in the bowl together with the corresponding
quantity of water.

•  Make sure that the rice is well distributed around the whole surface of the bowl,

in order to allow even cooking.

•  Add salt if required. Allow about half a teaspoon of salt for 4 cups of rice, but

you can adjust this to your personal taste. Remember your Rice Cooker uses less
water than when boiling rice so take care not to add too much salt.

•  Stock may be substituted for water if desired. If using stock cubes, take care not

to season with too much salt as they have a salty taste.

•  Do not open the lid during cooking as steam will escape and this will affect the

cooking time.

•  On completion of cooking, when the “keep warm” function is selected, stir the

rice and then leave it in the rice cooker for a few minutes longer in order to get
perfect rice with separate grains.

This is the only cooking
mode for which
programming a delayed start
is possible.

To cook rice

The cooking times given in the tables and recipes are only approximate and for
your guidance.
•  Place the appliances on a flat, stable, heat-resistant work surface away from

water splashes and any other sources of heat.

•  Pour the required quantity of rice into the bowl using the measuring cup

provided. Then fill with cold water up to the corresponding “CUP” mark
printed in the bowl (See cooking guide) – 

Fig. 7.

•  Close the lid.

Note: Always add the rice first otherwise you will have too much water.

•  Check that the appliance is plugged in. Briefly press on the “rice cooking” key

– 

Fig. 8. 

The red “rice cooking” light flashes for 5 seconds. After 5 seconds the

light remains steady and the cooking automatically starts.

•  After each use empty the condensation collector.

The rice cooker itself
determines the exact cooking
time depending on the
quantity of water and
ingredients placed in the bowl
(see cooking table for a guide
to times).
When the volume of water has
been absorbed by the rice, the
appliance stops the cooking
process automatically and
passes into the “Keep warm”
mode (the orange “Keep
warm” light comes on).

Slow Cooking

Measuring the ingredients

•  The quantity of ingredients (see recipes for the amounts) should not exceed

the 10 CUP mark in the bowl when slow cooking.

To slow cook 

To select the “slow cooking” mode. When the ingredients have been placed in the
bowl and the appliance plugged in, press the “slow cooking” key 

– 

Fig. 11

.

When

the “slow cooking” light flashes, you can press the “plus” key – 

Fig. 9 

or the

“minus” key – 

Fig. 10 

to select a cooking time. If you don’t select a cooking time

after 5 seconds, the light stops flashing, and the corresponding indicator light
remains steady; the cooking time of the appliance is automatically programmed
to 60 minutes and the appliance begins cooking.

Select the cooking time: the appliance allows you to program between 60
minutes minimum and 9 hours maximum for the slow cooking mode. Choose the
time so as to suit the chosen recipe while the red “slow cooking” light is flashing.
Press repeatedly on the time key to increase the cooking time. You can also press
continuously in order to speed up the process. The time increases in hourly
increments from 60 minutes up to 9 hours maximum.

When the red “slow cooking” light remains steady to begin the cooking process
begins

Important instructions when slow cooking
dried beans and dried peas

•  If you are preparing a slow cooker recipe which contains dried beans or dried

peas, for example red kidney beans or chick peas, they must be soaked in
plenty of cold water overnight before cooking them. Drain and rinse them
thoroughly, then place in a large saucepan and cover with fresh cold water.
Bring to the boil and continue to boil rapidly for 10 minutes, uncovered, then
drain before using in Slow Cooker recipes. This destroys any natural toxins in
the beans or peas.

•  Season pulses after cooking as the salt can toughen them during cooking.
•  Soaking is not necessary for lentils, but they must still be boiled rapidly for 10

minutes.

•  Canned beans and pulses can simply be drained and rinsed, and added 30

minutes before the end of the cooking time. They do not need to be boiled
first.

Steam cooking 

(for vegetables, fruit and fish)

Measuring the ingredients

•  The maximum quantity of water in the bowl should not exceed the 10 CUP mark

(representing 1.8 litres of water) shown in “cups” on the bowl. Exceeding this level
may cause overflows during use.

Do not eat uncooked beans,
peas or lentils. Never add
pulses to slow cooker recipes
without boiling them first.

Fig. 16-17-18

. Scouring

powders and metal sponges are not recommended.

•  If food has stuck to the bottom, allow the bowl to soak for a while before

washing it.

•  Dry the bowl carefully.
•  Do not immerse the appliance in water, nor pour water into it, only into the

bowl.

Cleaning in a dishwasher 

You can also wash the bowl, the steam bowl and the steam shield in the bottom
shelf of the dishwasher. For the bowl, carefully follow the instructions below :

When putting the bowl into the machine, be careful not to damage the non-
stick coating on the dish washer racks.

After being washed several times in the dish washer, to renew the surface, it is
recommended to wipe the whole of the inner surface of the bowl with a little
vegetable oil on some paper towel.

Make sure you put the bowl back into the Electronic Rice Cooker.

The escaping steam is very
hot.

Any brown marks and
scratches that may appear
after many hours use are not
a problem. We guarantee
that the non stick coating
COMPLIES WITH THE RULES
on materials suitable for
contact with food.

Rice Cooker 4 EN 1 GB2  5/01/07  9:07  Page 8

Taking care of the non-stick bowl 

•  To keep the non stick quality of the bowl for as long as possible, it is

recommended not to cut food in it.

•  Use plastic or wooden utensils and not metal ones when stirring or serving

food to avoid damaging the bowl surface.

•  To avoid any risk of corrosion, do not pour vinegar into the bowl.
•  The colour of the bowl surface may change after using for the first time or

after longer use. This change in colour is due to the action of steam and
water and does not have any effect on the use of the Electronic Rice Cooker,
nor is it dangerous for your health. It is perfectly safe to continue using it.

Cleaning and care of the other parts of the appliance  

Clean the outside of the Electronic Rice Cooker, the inside of the lid and the cord
with a damp cloth and wipe dry. Do not use abrasive products.

Do not use water to clean the interior of the appliance body as it could damage
the heat sensor.

Before putting the appliance away, wind the cord underneath the appliance –
