Cooking Tips for Rice Mode - Multi-Cooker

Using Rice Mode on KitchenAid Multi-Cooker

  • It is important to measure rice and water accurately before cooking for the best results.
  • Some varieties of rice are washed/rinsed before cooking. U.S. varieties generally are not, as they have been enriched with vitamins and minerals. Rinsing these types of rice removes the added nutrients. If washing rice before cooking, be sure to measure it before washing, not after, and try to drain as much water away as possible before adding the amount needed for cooking.
  • After adding rice and water to the Multi-Cooker pot, spread the rice into an even layer on the bottom for the best cooking results. Do not remove the lid during cooking.
  • Make sure the lid covers the cooking pot spout to trap steam for optimal rice cooking performance.
  • Most types of rice will be slightly undercooked at the end of the Rice cooking cycle. Allowing the cooked rice to rest in the cooking pot with the lid on for 5 to 10 minutes will allow the last bit of moisture to be absorbed.
  • Oil, butter, salt, and other seasonings can all be added if desired. Stir in before starting the Rice cooking cycle. Liquids other than water can also be used to add flavor. Try substituting fish, poultry, vegetable, or meat stocks or broths.
  • Chopped fresh herbs can be stirred into cooked rice at the end of the cooking cycle before allowing the rice to rest.
