How Does a Rice Cooker Work?

Rice cookers use a simple yet effective principle. You add rice and water, and the cooker heats the mixture. Once the water boils and the steam begins to cook the rice, the temperature starts to rise. The cooker senses this change and reduces the heat to avoid overcooking.

This smart cooking process ensures perfectly cooked rice every time, which makes it ideal for anyone who enjoys rice but prefers a hassle-free cooking experience.
