How to Cook Rice in the GE Rice Cooker


GE rice cookers effortlessly heat any type of rice without over or under cooking it. By automatically detecting when the rice absorbs all of the water, the GE rice cooker knows when to shut itself off. Using this appliance to cook rice only requires you to add the ingredients to the pot and turn it on. Your rice will be fluffy and ready to eat when the rice steamer completes the cooking cycle.

Step 1

Pour 1 plastic measuring cup of uncooked rice into the inner pot of the rice cooker for every 2 servings of cooked rice you wish to make.

Step 2

Add 1 ½ cups of water on top of the rice for the first 1 cup of rice, and 1 cup of water for each extra cup of uncooked rice. For instance, cook 1 cup of raw rice with 1 ½ plastic cups of water. Use 2 ½ cups of water for 2 cups of raw rice. For all measurements use only the plastic measuring cup included with the rice cooker. See tip.

Step 3

Set the inner cooking pot with the rice and water into the GE rice cooker and twist to lock on top of the heating element.

Step 4

Cover the rice steamer with the lid and plug into an outlet.

Step 5

Begin cooking by depressing the center button on the rice cooker.

Step 6

Wait for the button to pop back up and the keep-warm light to come on to indicate cooking has finished. Leave the rice in the pot with the lid on for 5 to 10 minutes in the keep-warm phase. (see reference1pg 3)

Step 7

Unplug the machine, fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
