How to Clean My Rice Cooker

If you keep your rice cooker clean, it will last a long time. To prevent damage or common repairs, clean your rice cooker after each use.

This will allow you to cook in a clean and safe manner, while also increasing the life expectancy of your appliance. It is important to clean the exterior as well as the internal parts.

A stovetop cooker is easy to clean because it functions just like a kitchen tool. An electric cooker requires extra care. Because it contains some electric parts, it cannot be washed in a dishwasher or soaked in water.

This could cause irreparable damage to the equipment. To clean both types of cookers, you must follow a step-by-step cleaning process.

Steps to Clean Electric Rice cooker:

It can take a lot of patience to clean an electric cooker. You don't have to clean your cooker thoroughly every time you use it. Only clean the rice-sticking parts of the cooker's interior. You will only need to clean the exterior parts. We can help you if you are unsure how to clean an electronic rice cooker. These are the steps.

Step 1 - Unplug the Device

First, unplug your rice cooker from its switch. Turn off the power button, and then remove the plug to protect yourself. This step must be followed before you clean any electrical appliances.

Step 2 - Wait for the Cooker to Cooldown

Wait for the rice cooker's temperature to cool. The rice cooker heats up when you cook it. You should allow the rice to cool to room temperature before cleaning it. This will prevent any burns or injuries.

Step 3 - Remove the Internal Parts

You can remove the inner parts once they are comfortable to touch. This includes the inner pot and gasket, inner lid, inner dew collector, steam caps, inner cap, and inner lid. All of these components should be removed gently. You will first need to take out the inner pot. Next, remove the inner lid. To remove it safely, you can refer to the manual.

Step 4 - Prepare Cleaning Solution

You will now need to prepare a cleaning solution for all internal parts. To clean the parts, you can use mild dishwashing detergent and a soft sponge. Instead of cleaning each part individually, make a solution in the sink. Then soak them all. To make the solution, you can use warm water, dishwasher fluid, and chlorine bleach. Let the parts sit for several hours before you rinse them. You can then rinse the parts and use a dry towel to wipe off the water.

Step 5 - Clean Rice Cooker

After drying and cleaning the internal parts of the rice cooker, move on to the rice cooker. First, clean the rice cooker's interior. To clean the rice cooker's interior, use a damp paper towel or cloth. It should be damp but not completely wet. Remove any food particles or rice grains from the heating plate. Use a dry cloth to wipe the power cord and dry the interior. The cloth should also be used to clean the exterior of the cooker.

Step 6: Assemble

After cleaning out the electric rice cooker, you can assemble the interior parts and attach them to the cooker. You must ensure that everything is clean and dry.

How to Clean Stovetop Rice Cooker

It's much easier to clean the stovetop rice cooker. It is easy to clean the stovetop rice cooker without causing damage to any of its electrical components. You can wash it in the dishwasher just like any other kitchen appliance. It is important to make sure it is safe for dishwasher use. To clean it, you can put it in the dishwasher if it is safe. It is safer to wash it in the sink, as you won't damage the coating. These are the steps to clean a stovetop rice cooker.

Step 1 - Turn off the Stove

Before you begin to clean the rice cooker, make sure that it is off. People often forget to turn off their stoves, which can cause gas waste. Also, you must remove all rice from the cooker.

Step 2 - Wait for the Cooker to Cooldown

Before you wash the cooker, wait until it cools down. The rice will get very hot when it is cooked in the cooker. You need to wait until the rice reaches room temperature before you turn the cooker on.

Step 3 - Remove the Internal Pot and Tray

After the cooker has cooled enough to be cleanable, remove the tray and the inner pot. You will first need to take off the lid. Keep it aside. Next, remove the inner pot in which you cooked rice. Then, take out any steam tray or other parts.

Step 4 - Soak in water

It is possible for the internal pot to become stuck with rice, making it difficult to clean. You will need to fill the sink using warm water. Then add some dishwasher liquid. Once the liquid is ready, you can soak the steam tray and internal pot in it. To prevent water from rushing, use a stopper and let the parts soak in the water for at least 1 to 2 hours. Do not put any other utensils into the sink.

Step 5 - Clean Parts and Cooker

After the rice particles have dried, it is possible to use a sponge to clean the tray and internal pot. The sponge should not be made from metal or rough. Make sure to clean the outside and inside of the pot, the tray, the cooker, as well as the lid.

Step 6 - Rinse and Dry

After cleaning the parts thoroughly, rinse them with warm water and dry them with a clean cloth.

These are the steps to take when cleaning your rice cooker. To make your rice cooker last longer, ensure that you clean it often.
