Using the Rice Cooker
INTRODUCTION
The Toshiba® Rice and Grain Cooker benefit from the use of Fuzzy Logic, a technology that senses moisture levels to accurately cook food. Cooking time and temperature are defined by the appliance. Our highly intelligent Rice and Grain Multicooker automatically adjust the heat and timing for perfect results every time.

TOSHIBA TRCS01 Electric Rice Cooker User Manual  & troubleshooting 26 IMPORTANT

  • Do NOT place anything on or over the rice cooker lid, during use.
  • Do NOT touch the steam vent during cooking.
  • Do NOT place the interior cooking pot on a cooktop burner; the high temperature will warp the pot. The cooking pot is designed to be used only in the rice cooker.
  • Do not use a pot or container other than the cooking pot (provided) in the rice cooker.
  • Do not insert any foreign objects into the air vent or gaps at the bottom of the rice cooker.
  • Do not season rice while it is being kept warm in the cooking pot. Seasonings left in contact with the interior of the cooking pot may damage the non-stick coating.
  • Do not use metal cooking utensils. Metal utensils may scratch or damage the nonstick coating.

MEASURING RICE

TOSHIBA TRCS01 Electric Rice Cooker User Manual  & troubleshooting 27 IMPORTANT
The total amount of rice and water should NOT exceed the 6 cup MAX level marked inside the cooking pot.
TOSHIBA TRCS01 Electric Rice Cooker User Manual  & troubleshooting 28 NOTE
The Rice Measure is significantly smaller than the standard U.S. cup measure.

  • To achieve the correct ratio of rice to water, use ONLY the Rice Measure (cup provided).
  • Level the rice in the Rice Measure cup so that it is even with the top.
  • For softer or firmer rice adjust the ratio of water to rice accordingly.
  • If the rice requires rinsing before cooking, measure the rice before you rinse it, Follow the rinsing directions for that specific type of rice.

RINSING RICE
Some types of rice are rinse-free and other types require rinsing before use to remove excess starch which may make the rice sticky. Also, cooking rice with starchy water may result in the rice burning or being improperly cooked.
If the water should turn white or cloudy, when added to rinse-free rice, drain and replace the water before cooking. Many recipes recommend rinsing quickly so the rice does not absorb water prior to cooking.

To Rinse Rice Quickly:

  1. Place a colander inside a larger bowl.
  2. Place the rice in the colander and rinse under cool running water.
    Rinsing rice in hot water may prevent the rice from cooking properly.
  3. Using your hand stir the rice around 3 to 4 times to separate the grains.
  4. Continue to rinse until the water in the bowl is clear.

ADDING OTHER INGREDIENTS
If you wish to add other ingredients or seasonings to the rice, do so after adding the water.
The rice will not cook properly and be too firm if ingredients are added before the water.

TIPS FOR GREAT RESULTS

  • Measure rice and water accurately.
  • For added flavor, you may substitute meat stock or broth for the water and chopped fresh herbs can be stirred into the rice at the end of cooking before allowing to rest.
  • Some varieties of rice should be rinsed before cooking. Enriched rice, commonly found in the U. S., is not rinsed to preserve the added nutrients. If rinsing rice before cooking, measure rice before rinsing and drain as much water as possible.
  • After adding the rice and water to the cooking pot, spread it evenly over the bottom.
  • Do not open the lid during cooking.
  • Most types of rice will be slightly undercooked at the end of the cooking program. Allow the cooked rice to “rest” in the cooking pot for 5 to 10 minutes to absorb the last bit of moisture.

LIMITED ONE-YEAR WARRANTY

(U.S. AND CANADA ONLY)
Warranty Period:
This warranty is available to consumers only. You are a consumer if you own a Toshiba® Rice and Grain Multicooker that was purchased at retail for personal, family or household use. Except as otherwise required under applicable law, this warranty is not available to retailers or other commercial purchasers or owners.
We warrant that your Toshiba® Rice and Grain Multicooker will be free of defects in materials or workmanship under normal home use for 1 year from the date of original purchase. We recommend that you visit our website, https://www.toshiba-lifestyle.com/us/ for a fast, efficient way to complete your product registration. However, product registration does not eliminate the need for the consumer to maintain the original proof of purchase in order to obtain the warranty benefits. In the event that you do not have proof of purchase date, the purchase date for purposes of this warranty will be the date of manufacture.
If your Toshiba® Rice and Grain Multicooker should prove to be defective within the warranty period, we will repair it, or if we think necessary, replace it. To obtain warranty service, simply call our toll-free number 1-855-204-5313 for additional information from our Consumer Service Representatives or send the defective product to Consumer Service at Toshiba, 5 Sylvan Way, Parsippany, NJ 07054.
NOTE: For added protection and secure handling of any Toshiba product that is being returned, we recommend you use a traceable, insured delivery service. Toshiba cannot be held responsible for in-transit damage or for packages that are not delivered to us. Lost and/or damaged products are not covered under warranty. Please be sure to include your return address, daytime phone number, description of the product defect, product model number (located on the bottom of the product), the original date of purchase, and any other information pertinent to the product’s return.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service California residents have the option of returning a nonconforming product (A) to the store where it was purchased or (B) to another retail store that sells Toshiba products of the same type. The retail store shall then, at its discretion, either repair the product, refer the consumer to an independent repair facility, replace the product, or refund the purchase price less the amount directly attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If the above two options do not result in the appropriate relief to the consumer, the consumer may then take the product to an independent repair facility if service or repair can be economically accomplished. Toshiba and not the consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair, replacement, or refund for nonconforming products under warranty.
California residents may also, according to their preference, return nonconforming products directly to Toshiba for repair, or if necessary, replacement, by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 1-855-204-5313. Toshiba will be responsible for the cost of the repair, replacement, and shipping, and handling of such products under warranty.
BEFORE RETURNING YOUR TOSHIBA PRODUCT
If you are experiencing problems with your Toshiba product, we suggest that you call our Toshiba Service Center at 1-855-204-5313 before returning the product for service. If servicing is needed, a Representative can confirm whether the product is under warranty and direct you to the nearest service location. Your Toshiba® Rice and Grain Multicooker has been manufactured to the strictest specifications and has been designed for use only in 120-volt outlets and only with authorized accessories and replacement parts. This warranty expressly excludes any defects or damages caused by attempted use of this unit with a converter, as well as by use with accessories, replacement parts or repair service other than those authorized by Toshiba. This warranty does not damage caused by accident, misuse, shipment or other than ordinary household use. This warranty excludes all incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of these damages, so these exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.

Important:
If the nonconforming product is to be serviced by someone other than Toshiba’s Authorized Service Center, please remind the servicer to call our Consumer Service Center at 1-855-204-5313 to ensure that the problem is properly diagnosed, the product is serviced with the correct parts, and the product is still under warranty.
