How Little Rice Can You Cook? I'm considering this product or the smaller 5 cup model. However, I frequently just make one serving of rice. I would like the convenience of being able to do that, but still have the ability to cook a larger amount. So my question is, can this rice cooker also cook smaller servings without burning them or over cooking?
My experience in the past is that the larger rice cookers are great for cooking just that, a larger amount. But when you try to cook a smaller portion, it's comes out rubbery or burnt.
I own the 5 1/2 cup neuro fuzzy model and the 3 cup induction model. The minimum amount of uncooked white rice recommended for the 5 1/2 cup model is one rice cooker cup (6 oz). The minimum amount recommended for the 3 cup model is 1/2 rice cooker cup (it makes a modest single serving of cooked white rice). Although I do not own the 10 cup model, some sources recommend a minimum of 2 rice cooker cups, an amount far more than a single serving. I have read some reviewers who own the 10 cup model say they have cooked one cup of rice without any noticeable difference, but I'm not sure that is recommended.
