Not only will the Digital Simplicity™ 4-20 Cup Rice Cooker and Food Steamer give you the confidence to expand your menu, it lets you come home to food that’s fully cooked. With its clever Delay Start timer, you have the flexibility to delay the cooking process up to 15 hours in advance. Set it up in the morning and your food will be ready when you get home. What could be easier than that?
The Digital Simplicity™ Rice Cooker and Food Steamer has preprogrammed cooking functions to simplify cooking. There’s no need for you to worry about overcooking, watch over the stove or set a kitchen timer. When you cook using WHITE RICE, QUICK RICE, WHOLE GRAIN or HEAT/SIMMER, the Digital Simplicity™ Rice Cooker will adjust the cooking time automatically as needed based on the actual amount of food and liquid in the nonstick cooking pot.
Easy White Rice, Quick Rice & Whole Grain
All three functions are preprogrammed with the right amount of cooking time for each type of food, so there’s no need to consult the cooking directions on your rice bag or oatmeal box. As food cooks, the Digital Simplicity™ Rice Cooker senses food’s remaining moisture level and automatically adjusts the cooking time shorter or longer as needed. When cooking is complete, it automatically shifts to WARM.
What’s Different About Heat/Simmer?
HEAT/SIMMER is for preparing prepackaged rice and pasta mixes and is perfect for beans, soups and one-pot meals, too. It’s easy to use. Select the HEAT/SIMMER function and input how many minutes the contents need to simmer (found on the stovetop directions of your brand’s packaging). The Digital Simplicity™ Rice Cooker will automatically heat the water (or other liquid) to the right temperature and switch to simmer to finish cooking. When food is ready, it automatically shifts to WARM.
How To Steam Food
Want to serve a vegetable side dish or dumplings alongside your rice? Use the optional steaming basket. Simply fill the basket and add to the cooker toward the end of your rice cooking cycle or use it on its own. To use this convenient function, select STEAM COOK and input the COOK TIME from 1 to 30 minutes. The display will show ON during heating and the display will count down your set time once steaming has begun. Note: If the pot boils dry, a beep will alert you and the remaining time will begin flashing. To continue the STEAM COOK function, simply add more water within 3 minutes to resume steaming.
Allowing rice to “rest” for approximately 5-10 minutes after cooking will yield better-tasting rice. Give your rice or vegetables a flavor boost by substituting broth for water. The more vegetables added to the steamer basket, the longer the steam time should be. Smaller pieces of vegetables will steam faster than large pieces.
