Designed for perfect convection, KAKOMI Rice Cooker will make it easier to cook perfect, delicious rice. The rounded shape of the pot creates convection for each grain of rice to be cooked evenly. The combination of the inner and outer lids generate the right level of pressure and prevent boil over. The pot's ceramic material releases far-infrared radiation which heats the ingredients inside. Putting the pot over direct fire increases this effect, resulting in a fluffy textured rice.
The heat-resistant ceramic pot tolerates a heat-temperature difference of 500 degrees celsius. It has a very low water absorption rate*, preventing lingering odors and residue. After cooking a pot-dish full of spices, it is easy to clean and maintain.
Reference lines inside the pot make measuring easy. For 1 cup of rice, add water up to the bottom line. For 2 cups of rice, add water up to the top line. You can also use the measuring cup that comes with the product. For cooking 1 cup of rice, add 1 cup + 20ml of water, and for 2 cups of rice, add 2 cups + 40ml of water. Adjust the amount of water accordingly to suit your taste and the different types of rice.
*Water absorption rate indicates the degree of water that seeps into the pot.

Caring for KAKOMI Rice Cooker Pot & Lid:
Wash with care. Do not use abrasive cleansers or steel wool. Immediately wash and dry well after use, and keep dry when not in use.
Do not use for deep frying. Dry well before use, or the remaining moisture could cause breakage when heated. Do not heat without water. The handle and lid will be hot when heated. Use mittens to hold. Hold the pot with both hands when carrying as the ceramic pot is heavy. Do not touch with a wet cloth or put in a wet place while it is hot as rapid cooling may cause breakage. Do not heat with water filled up to the rim. Remove the lid when using in an oven as rapid risein temperature may cause breakage. Do not leave the pot soaked in water. Wash with care. Do not use abrasive cleansers or steel wool. Immediately wash and dry well after use, and keep dry when not in use. Product size and shape varies in each item due to manufacturing process.
As the pot does not absorb water, there is no need to 'seal' the pot before its first use. Lightly wash with a neutral detergent.
