  • Cook the rice over medium-high heat for 9-15 minutes until you see the strong steam coming out from the hole on the lid.
  • Turn off the heat and let the rice steam for 10-20 minutes with the lid closed.
  • Then, open the lid, and stir the cooked rice with a rice spatula.
  • Ready to eat.

How to Cook Brown Rice

  • Put rinsed brown rice and water (300-330 ml per 1-Go brown rice) into the casserole.
  • Soak the rice in water for 60 minutes or longer.
  • Cook the rice over medium heat for 20 minutes with only the inner lid on.
  • Then, put the top lid on and cook over extremely low heat for 40 minutes.
