    Default Rice cooker

    Does anyone know the difference between a "rice cooker 1 cup measure" and
    a regular 1 cup measure. I've lost my rice cooker cup and most recipes
    stipulate using the rice cooker measure......TIA...Sharon

    Unfortunately, it varies with the rice cooker. A check at the manufacturer's
    web site might help.

    I've had several rice cookers over the years but have never seen the
    term "rice cooker 1 cup measure" either in their instruction booklets
    or in any recipes. What makes you think they would be different from
    a regular cup? I don't suppose it would help to tell you that a cup
    of rice holds about 7200 grains of rice....<;-) -aem

    The rice cooker I once had included a special measuring cup which in no way
    equalled a standard measuring cup. It was a melamine type cup with no
    markings, and I never bothered to check exactly how much difference there
    was in volume.

    We have a Zojirushi and the one cup measure is actually 7 oz. Bob lost
    his measuring cup sometime back, but had the forethought to figure out
    how much was in each measure before it disappeared. I use my
    Tupperware shaker and measure to the 14 oz. line for 2 cups of rice.
    Works great.

    My aroma rice steamer has a measuring cup that is only 3/4 of a regular
    cup. The recipe booklet says to use that instead of a "real" cup.

    Funny you should mention that...I bought a cookbook 101 ricecooker recipes,
    in the introduction it mentions the ricecooker cup size. Since that seemed
    important to me I wrote it on the cover of the book. You lost the cup...I
    lost the book.

    According to the book I lost...working from memory here...rice cooker
    cups are all about the same size and I'm thinking it is about 6 fluid
    oz...but don't hold me to that.

    The rice cup measure is normally 180 ml, approximately 25% smaller than
    the western measuring cup of 8 (US) fluid ounces / 250 ml.

    Doesnt matter as long as you use the same proportions. Many rice makers
    come with a cup and if you use it, you can then use the little water scale
    on the inside. Lost the cup? 1 cup dry, 2 cups water. Same ratio over and
    over no matter how much you double or reduce.

    I might add, thats for asian mediam grain 'sticky'. You may want to reduce
    the waer slightly if you like american 'separatist' rice <g>.
