How to cook rice in a clay pot rice cooker?
January 3, 2009 5:28 PM   Subscribe

My husband and I received a Vita Clay rice cooker as a gift. We'd like to start using it, but it the recipe/instruction booklet is missing.

Having never had a clay pot rice cooker before, I don't know:

a) what the ratio of rice:water should be, and
b) if there are any special things I need to do to take care of the clay pot.

I attempted to contact the company to ask for a replacement manual/recipe book, but they haven't responded to my requests.

I just tried out my new rice cooker tonight (different brand, though) and found that it took about the same amount of water per cup of rice that I used to use to make the same rice on the stovetop, based on the directions on the back of the rice container. That's probably a pretty good estimate if you find yourself needing any more detail beyond ubiquity's link.
