The Cuckoo Rice Cooker is a rice cooking product manufactured by Cuckoo Electronics. The cooker is pressurized during the cooking process which helps the texture and speeds up the cooking process. The cooker can cook between two and ten cups of rice at a time. It also comes with a computerized display and touch panel so you can select the type of rice you are cooking. A hard plastic rice scoop is included and it makes getting cooked rice out of the cooker easy and prevents the cooker from getting scratched.

Step 2

Place rice into empty perforated bowl.

Step 3

Wash rice until water runs clear. The water will appear dark white or milky until clear.

Step 4

Place washed rice into "inner pot" of the Cuckoo Rice Cooker.

Step 5

Place "inner pot" on flat surface and read the marked labels to determine how much water you need to add to the "inner pot". For example, if you are making eight cups of white glutinous rice, then you would find the "fill to line" marked for glutinous rice that reads eight cups.

Step 6

Fill the "inner pot" with water until the water level reaches the combined "fill to line" as displayed on the side of the "inner pot".


Step 7

Push the "Select" button on the rice cooker menu display until the rice type you are using is displayed. The first press will display glutinous or white rice and each push will display the following in sequential order: turbo glutinous rice, sushi, mixed rice and GABA or brown rice.

Step 8

Insert "inner pot" with combined rice and water into the main body of the Cuckoo Rice Cooker.


Step 9

Close lid of the rice cooker and turn handle to lock.

Step 10

Push the "Pressure Cook" button. The time for cooking the rice will display on the menu panel. The device will automatically determine the pressurized weight of the rice and water and will adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Step 11

Open lid of pressure cooker with an oven mitt on your hand after the cooker has alerted you that the rice has finished cooking. Make sure to open the lid with your face away the opening of the device to prevent being burned from the steam.


Step 12

Stir the rice completely after opening the lid with the rice scoop.

Step 13

Remove desired amount of rice from cooker with rice scoop and close lid.

Things You'll Need

  • Measuring cup

  • Perforated bowl


Make sure to wash the rice cooker after each use to prevent the build up of bacteria and left of rice in the cooker container. Also empty remaining water from the dew tray after each use.

The "fill to line" measurement is not a measurement of just water but a measurement of combined rice and water needed for that amount of rice. It is imperative that the rice be placed in the “inner pot” before filling it with water or there will be too much water.


Keep your hands and face away from the pressurized steam release mechanism during cooking and when opening the device.
