Your Guide to Choosing the Best Cuckoo Rice Cooker

About Cuckoo Electronics Co., Ltd

Founded in 1978, Cuckoo Electronics is a South Korean manufacturing firm that primarily produces innovative household appliances that make life easier.

The brand is best known for small home appliances made of good-quality material, notably Korean-style pressure rice cookers. What makes Korean-style cookers (0.8 kg to 0.9 kg cooking pressure) different is that they typically gelatinize rice starches more completely than Japanese-style cookers (0.4 kg to 0.6 kg cooking pressure) resulting in a more glutinous and marginally more nutritious cooked rice. Therefore, it has become one of the well-known rice cooker brands in Asia and in the USA.

Here's a rundown on the best Cuckoo rice cookers for your kitchen.

How do you cook rice in a Cuckoo rice cooker?

  1. Measure your desired amount of rice with a measuring cup.
  2. Place rice in a perforated bowl and rinse rice until water runs clear.
  3. Pour washed rice into the inner pot of your Cuckoo rice cooker.
  4. Place the inner pot in the cooker. Then, read the marked labels to determine how much water to add to the pot. For instance, if you're making eight cups of white glutinous rice, then you'll find the "fill to line" marked for glutinous rice that reads eight cups.
  5. Fill the pot with water until the water level reaches the combined "fill to line" as displayed on the side of the pot.
  6. Place the pot into the Cuckoo rice cooker.
  7. Press the "Select" button on the rice cooker menu display until the rice type you are using is displayed.
  8. Close the lid of the cooker and turn the handle to lock.
  9. 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.
