How does a rice cooker work and How does your rice cooker make perfect rice without burning it?

Under normal heating conditions, water cannot heat past its boiling point, which is 212 degrees Fahrenheit (100 degrees Celsius). Any hotter than that, and the water converts to steam.

Thus, as long as liquid water remains in the pot, the water will absorb the heat from the heating mechanism, not the rice. Because the water cannot get any hotter than 212 degrees, the pot cannot get hotter than 212 degrees. The thermal sensor monitors this.

Once it has absorbed all of the water, the rice itself can be heated past 212 degrees F, leading to overdone or burnt rice. Once the rice cooker’s thermal sensor detects the pot going above 212 degrees, it means the water has all been absorbed.

At that point, the rice is done. To prevent the rice from cooking any further, the sensor automatically trips the shut-off switch for the heating mechanism. This immediately stops the cooking process.

Advantages of rice cookers

  • Quick cooking –The rice cooker has a lid and produces contant amount of heat. The rice cooker coming with pressure cooker facility cooks a lot faster.
  • Keep food hot automatically – The rice cooker has a mechanism to keep on heating the food constantly if not switched off, without burning the food.
  • Ease of maintenance and cleaning – The rice cookers has a bowl which can be brought out easily to clean and maintain.
  • Cooking a number of dishes : You can not only cook rice but a wide variety of dishes be rice dishes or curries in the same rice cooker.

Disadvantages of rice cookers

  • It does not work without electricity, making it inconvinient in places without proper electricity all round the clock, specially when you cook.
  • You cannot drain the rice water out in most of the rice cookersmaking the rice sticky if you are putting more water than required and keeping for long duration (as the rice cooker warms the food untill switched off).
