The Induction Heating System Rice Cooker & Warmer uses high-tech Induction Heating (IH) method to heat the inner cooking pan. Because of this new heating method, rice cooks exceptionally well. This IH Rice Cooker also features easy-to-clean clear coated stainless steel exterior, healthy cooking options such as brown rice, GABA BROWN and germinated brown rice settings, and an interchangeable melody and beep signal. Other features include automatic keep warm, extra large LCD display for Clock and Timer functions and detachable inner lid. Available in 5.5 and 10 cup sizes. Made in Japan, One Year Limited Warranty.
The heating method known as Induction Heating (IH) occurs when a magnetic material is placed in a magnetic field. In our case, coils within the bottom of the rice cooker create the magnetic field. When the aluminum nonstick inner cooking pan with stainless steel outer lining is placed into the rice cooker and the unit is activated, a magnetic field is generated to create instant heat. Through this technology, the inner cooking pan itself becomes the heat source utilizing both high heat and fine heat adjustments to control the cooking process. The Result: quicker, more evenly distributed heat for perfectly cooked delicious rice every time.
This is not a new variety of brown rice, but a newly discovered way of cooking brown rice to "activate" it and increase naturally occurring gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), an amino acid in brown rice believed to have health giving properties such as lowering blood pressure, improving kidney function and relieving stress. The brown rice is activated by soaking the rice at 104°F for 2 hours before the actual cooking begins.
Once the rice is cooked, the rice cooker automatically goes to Keep Warm mode to keep the rice at the perfect serving temperature without overcooking. More advanced rice cookers may also feature Extended Keep Warm and Reheating Cycle modes. Set your rice cooker to complete cooking at a certain time, or in preset number of hours, so the rice is ready whenever you want it. The inner lid (a lid that covers the inside of the outer lid of the rice cooker) detaches for easy cleaning. We recommend cleaning the inner lid after every use.
