exact amount of water. For example, for 4 measures of uncooked rice, fill with
water to water-level marking 4. Be careful not to add too much water as it may
cause the unit to boil over.
Note: Taste/hardness will vary depending on the quality/type of rice, amount of liquid
and length of time it is cooked. Follow the instructions in the RICe CookIng gUIde

rice add a little less water. You may need to experiment to suit your taste.

or particles fall into the rice cooker.
