Below is a set of general guideline about how to prepare rice porridge in a Zojirushi Stainless Steel Food Jar.
- Pre-heat: Fill up the empty food jar with BOILING water, close and tighten the lid set, and set aside for at least 2 minutes.
- Initial soaking: Discard the water used to pre-heat the food jar. Put in raw ingredients (rice/vegetables etc). Pour in BOILING water again, close and tighten the lid set. SHAKE the food jar for a while to distribute heat to the ingredients. After 5 minutes, discard the water again.
- “Cooking”: Finally, pour in BOILING water again, close and tighten the lid set, SHAKE, set aside and wait for minimum 2 hours, done.
Extra points to take note to ensure success in your food preparation:
- Raw ingredients must be cut into small pieces.
- Water must be BOILING, not just hot.
- The food jar should be filled up to 80% full. Water should not exceed the water line/grid in the food jar. Please keep to about 1 cm below the water line/grid.
- Soak rice grains overnight or at least an hour (not compulsory but recommended).
- If you want to add raw meat, use boiling water to “soak” the meat separately (to kill germs) for 5 minutes, then drained before putting into the food jar with the rest of the ingredients.
