If you would like to see some more rice cookers then I recommend reading top rice cookers in India.
Raw rice takes up very little space compared to cooked rice. Hence, the capacity of a rice cooker is measured as “before” and “after”. In a rice cooker, the before capacity is inclusive of rice and water needed for cooking the rice. THe whole space cannot be filled with rice as rice expands considerable. If extra rice is filled, it will overflow and fall out of the container.
The before capacity of Panasonic SR WA 10 is 1 liter. So, you can add around 2 cups of rice and the 4 cups of water required for it. The “after” capacity is 2.4 liters. While cooking, the water evaporates and rice takes up all the space.
Power of a rice cooker is the Watt rating of the heater. The heater is below the cooking pan. Higher the power, faster is the cooking process. The Panasonic SR WA 10 comes with a 550 Watt heater. This power is good enough for cooking 2 rice in around 15 – 20 minutes.
The cooking pan is made of Anodized Aluminium. This pan absorbs heat quickly and cooks faster thereby saving electricity.
Like all electric cookers, this cooker also automatically turns off when all the water evaporates. This prevents burning or charring of the items in the cooking pan. Hence this becomes an ideal cooking mechanism for rice and pastas. Rice cookers can be used for a variety of recipes such as maggi, pulav, biryani and also for boiling eggs.
The rice cooker comes with a 2 year warranty and comes with a scoop holder for holding your rice scoops. For buying or reading more reviews, check out the links below.
