Cooking the Perfect Brown Rice
There are many varieties of brown rice, but they all have one thing in common, the grains are not hulled and polished so the nutritious outer bran layer remains intact, hence the tan colour of this rice. The higher fibre content of brown rice also gives it a distinctive nutty flavour and chewy texture. Your Zojirushi rice cooker will cook brown rice so easily and perfectly that you’ll want to serve it every day.

Note: Brown rice requires a little more water than white rice. To cook brown rice it is recommended to use 1 1/2 times the amount of water to rice, unless your rice cooker includes a brown rice function. Please refer to your operating instruction to see if your rice cooker has a brown rice function. For those models without a brown rice function, if you use 2 cups of raw brown rice, the water level in the cooking pot should be at number “3.”

When the rice is ready, most models of rice cookers will turn off and switch to a “Keep Warm” cycle automatically. Before opening the lid, allow the cooked rice to “rest” for about 15 minutes to completely absorb any excess moisture. On some advanced models this is done automatically.

After the “rest” period, open the cooker and use the special nonstick rice spatula that comes with every Zojirushi rice cooker to fluff and serve your delicious, moist brown rice.
