WARNING: Electrical Shock Hazard. Cook only in removable Cooking Pot. Never place water or food directly into the Base.

Cooking rice

Rice Measuring Cup – Do not throw away the Rice Measuring Cup that comes with your unit. This is an important tool in using your Multi-Cooker successfully as a rice cooker and its size is standard in the rice industry. One Rice Measuring Cup equals 6 oz. (177 ml) or approximately 3/4 cup (U.S. standard measuring cup).

Steamer Basket – Use to steam vegetables, meat, poultry, seafood, and prepared foods such as dumplings or rice noodle rolls.

If using Multi-Cooker to cook rice, cereal, or grain:

1. Add desired amount of uncooked rice to Cooking Pot; then fill with water to corresponding water line. Example: If you add 4 level measuring cups of rice to the Cooking Pot, add water to the “4” line of the pot. DO NOT exceed 10-cup MAX.

2. Place Cooking Pot straight down on Base. Make sure Cooking Pot is securely placed into Base.

NOTE: Make sure bottom of Cooking Pot is not bent or warped, or it will not conduct heat correctly.

3. Plug into outlet. Press ON/OFF to turn on Multi-Cooker.

4. Press any button and all function buttons will flash. Press MENU button to select desired function. Selected function and time will flash. Multi-Cooker will start to heat automatically after 5 seconds.

5. At the end of the cooking time, the Multi-Cooker will automatically switch to KEEP WARM. MultiCooker will keep warm up to 12 hours, then sound an alarm and switch to standby mode. Use oven mitts if removing Cooking Pot from Base while still hot.

Program functions

WHITE RICE and BROWN RICE functions have preprogrammed cycles with a default cooking time that cannot be adjusted. Actual cooking time depends on the amounts of ingredients and water. Cooking will start and the display will show a rotating dash until the cooking process is almost complete. Then, the display time will jump to a time designated by the program and start counting down until finished cooking. The Multi-Cooker automatically switches to KEEP WARM when done cooking and will keep warm up to 12 hours.

Time functions

Six functions can be adjusted to the time you desire. After selecting function, press and hold the function button to start time. The display will show “ON” until the cooking temperature is reached, then the timer will begin counting down. The Multi-Cooker automatically switches to KEEP WARM when done cooking and will keep warm up to 12 hours.

NOTE: The DELAY TIME function can be used with WHITE RICE, BROWN RICE, and HOT CEREAL.



SLOW COOK HIGH1–14 hours; timer countdown starts immediately. Automatically switches to KEEP WARM for a total cooking and warm time of 24 hours. For example, if slow cook time is 6 hours, KEEP WARM time is 18 hours (24 hours minus 6 hours).
SAUTÉ1-60 minutes; timer countdown begins when cooking temperature reaches 300°F (150°C).
STEAM1-60 minutes; timer countdown begins when water boils.
HOT CEREAL5 minutes–3 hours; timer countdown begins when water boils.

KEEP WARMSelect to keep food warm for up to 12 hours.

NOTE*: If pot boils dry, Multi-Cooker will beep and the remaining time will flash in display. To continue STEAM/COOK, add more water within 3 minutes. If no water is added after 3 minutes, the display will flash “Er” until the ON/OFF button is pressed.

*While slow cooking, the Condensation Collector may need to be emptied after each time you open the Lid to prevent overflow.


The KEEP WARM function should be used for already-cooked food. Do not cook on KEEP WARM. Timer will count up to display the total amount of time on KEEP WARM.


The Delay Time function can be used with WHITE RICE, BROWN RICE, and HOT CEREAL. Place water and food items in Cooking Pot or food in Steamer Basket. Select function and cooking time.

Press MENU button to select function. Press to select cooking time, only for HOT CEREAL. Press DELAY TIME button and press to select delay time. Press ON/OFF button or Multi-Cooker will automatically start. DELAY TIME can be set from 0–24 hours.

Memory save

If the power is cut off and restarts within 5 minutes, the Multi-Cooker will remember the initial cooking status and continue the previous function automatically. If the power break was longer than 5 minutes, the unit will switch to standby mode.
