Cooking rice manually requires you to pay close attention while cooking, however with an electric rice cooker your attention can be elsewhere after you’ve added the proportionate water amount to the rice. After placing the rice cooker pot in the thermal plate, the pot immediately starts heating up. Once the temperature is 100 ℃ the water boils, the thermostat monitors this temperature. The rice then absorbs all the water in the pot which causes a rise in temperature.
The thermostat then knows the temperature has risen causing it to cut the power supply or change the mode to a warm mode. This lets you know that the rice is cooked and can be removed soon, the excess steam evaporates. Different rice cookers have varied modes and settings as well as added features. Now you know how a rice cooker works, it’s time to decide what rice cooker is the best for you.
