IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

Basic safety precautions should always be followed when using electrical appliances, including the following:

  1. Important: Read all instructions carefully before first use.
  2. Donot touch hot surfaces. Use the handles or knobs.
  3. Use only on a level, dry and heat resistant surface.
  4. To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse cord, plug or the appliance in water or any other liquid. See instructions for cleaning.
  5. Close supervision is necessary when the appliance is used by or near children.
  6. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow unit to cool before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning the appliance.
  7. Donot operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Contact Aroma® customer service for examination, repair or adjustment.
  8. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Aroma® Housewares may result in fire, electrical shock or injury.
  9. Do not use outdoors.
  10. Do not let cord touch hot surfaces or hang over the edge of a counter or table.
  11. Donot place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
  12. Do not use the appliance for anything other than its intended use.
  13. Use only with a 120V AC power outlet.
  14. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot rice or liquids.
  15. Do not touch, cover or obstruct the steam vent on the top of the rice cooker as it is extremely hot and may cause scalding.
  16. Always unplug from the plug gripping area. Never pull on the cord.
  17. The rice cooker should be operated on a separate electrical circuit from other operating appliances. If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, the rice cooker may not operate properly.
  18. Always make sure the outside of the inner pot is dry prior to use. If the inner pot is returned to the cooker when wet, it may damage or cause the product fo malfunction.

  22. To disconnect, flip the cook switch to Warm then remove the plug from the wall outlet.
  23. CAUTION: To reduce the risk of electrical shock, cook only in the removable inner pot provided.
  24. Intended for countertop use only.

  2. Longer extension cords are available and may be u s e d if care is exercised in their use.
  3. If a longer detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used:
    a.) The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
    b.) The extension cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Rice is too dry/hard after cooking.
If your rice is dry or hard/chewy when the cooker switches to Warm, additional water and cooking time will soften the rice. Depending on how dry your rice is, add % to 1 cup of water and stir thoroughly. Place on the lid and press the cook switch down. When  the cooker switches to Warm mode, remove the lid and stir the rice to check the consistency. Repeat as necessary until rice is soft and moist.

Rice is too moist/soggy after cooking.
If your rice is still too moist or soggy when the cooker switches to Warm, use the serving spatula to stir the rice. This will redistribute the bottom (moist) part of the rice as well as release excess moisture. Place on the lid and allow to remain on Warm mode for 10- 30 minutes as needed, removing the lid and stirring periodically to release excess moisture.

COOKING RICE & GRAIN

  1. Using the provided measuring cup, add rice or grain to the inner pot.

  2. Rinse rice to remove excess starch. Drain.

  3. For white rice, fill the inner pot with water to the line that matches the number of cups of uncooked rice added. For brown rice or other grains, refer to  the “Rice/Grain & Water Measurement Tables” onpages 8-9.

  4. Place the inner pot into the cooker then place the glass lid on top.

  5. Plug the power cord into an available 120V AC wall outlet.

  6. Press the cook switch down to begin cooking.
    The cook indicator light will illuminate as the rice cooker begins to heat.

  7. When the cycle is complete, the cook switch will automatically flip up and switch to Warm mode.

  8. For best results, stir the rice with the serving spatula to distribute any remaining moisture.

  9. When finished serving, unplug the power cord to turn the rice cooker off.

Note:

  • Opening the lid during the cooking cycle causes a loss of heat and steam. Cooking time may be prolonged if the lid is opened before the rice is finished.
  • Rinse rice before placing it into the inner pot to remove excess bran and starch. This will help reduce browning and sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • Do not place more than 3 cups of uncooked rice (2 cups of brown rice) into this appliance at one time. The maximum capacity of this unit is 3 cups of uncooked rice (2 cups of brown rice) which yields 6 cups of cooked rice (4 cups of brown rice).
