How to cook Rice with Rice Cooker

1 cup (240ml) of rice usually serves 2 people.
Rice & Water Ratio
For cooking white rice using an electronic rice cooker, the rice-water ratio is usually 1 part of rice & 1 part of water. Rice:Water=1:1
The ratio may vary a little depending on the brand of rice and your personal preference. Some people like their rice more watery than others.
2 cups rice -> 2 cups water
3 cups rice -> 3 cups water
4 cups rice -> 4 cups water
5 cups rice -> 5 cups water
If you use a pot the ratio is different.
For mixed (multigrain) rice, the ratio is completely different. See cooking multigrain rice using a rice cooker and cooking multigrain rice in a pot.

1. Wash rice

Wash 1 cup of rice in cold water. Do not rub it too hard or too long as it will lose nutrients. Wash twice in total. Second time, drain the water as much as possible without losing the rice grains.
