Read all the instructions. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles only. To protect against risk of electric shock, do not immerse appliance, cord, or plug in water or other liquid. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to an authorized service facility for examination, repair, or electrical or mechanical adjustment. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven. The use of accessory attachments not recommended or sold by the appliance manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury. Do not use outdoors. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces, including the stove. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing hot oil or other hot liquids. Do not use this appliance for other than intended use. Always attach plug to appliance first, then plug cord into the wall outlet. To disconnect turn any control to “OFF”, then remove plug from wall outlet. Always hold the plug, never pull the cord. To reduce the risk of shock, cook only in removable container. Some countertop and table surfaces, such as Corian@, wood and/or laminates, are not designed to withstand prolonged heat generated by certain appliances. It is recommended by countertop manufacturers that a hot pad or trivet be placed under your appliance to prevent possible damage to the surface. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. 1

****** Page 3 ****** SHORT CORD PURPOSE NOTE: A short power cord is provided to reduce the risk of personal injury resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. If an extension cord is used: (1) the marked electrical rating ofthe extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the product; (2) the extension cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can unintentionally be pulled on or tripped over by children or pets. POLARIZED PLUG If this appliance is equipped with a polarizedp/ug(one blade is wider than the other), please follow the below instructions: To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If you are unable to fit the plug into the electrical outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Never use the plug with an extension cord unless the plug can be fully inserted into the extension cord. Do not alter the plug of the product or any extension cord being used with this product. Do not attempt to defeat the safety purpose ofthe polarized plug. 2

****** Page 5 ****** Attaching the Detachable Lid To attach the Detachable Lid, line up the Locking Tabs on the Lid with the Locking Tab Receptacle and press in until you hear a click. Caution: A serious burn injury can occur if you try to move your mini rice cooker without the Lid locked into place. HOW TO USE YOUR 0 MINI RICE COOKER NOTE: Do not process cheese, coffee beans, or whole squares of chocolate in this product, as product damage could result. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Only measure rice with the enclosed measuring cup. For best results rinse measured rice until the water becomes relatively clear. (see “Helpful Tips” section for details). Place rinsed rice in the cooking pot, add water. For 1.5 cups of uncooked rice (yields 3 cups of cooked rice), measure 1.5 full scoops of rice using the measuring up. Add to the cooking pot. Add water to the 1.5 cup line on the inside of the pot. Always add the rice to the pot BEFORE adding the water to the pot. The water level marked on the inner pot is based upon having rice added already. Place the pot in the mini rice cooker. Place the lid on the mini rice cooker housing and lock into place. Plug in and immediately press the switch down to cook. The “Cook” Indicator light will illuminate to indicate the rice is cooking. The mini rice cooker will automatically switch to “Warm” when the cooking process has completed. The warm function will continue until the unit is unplugged. Open the mini rice cooker by unlocking both Locking Tabs on the lid. Be sure to open the lid facing away from you to avoid any hot steam. Remove and clean the Inner Pot after every use. Helpful Tips: • Using the Warm function for more than 5 hours may cause discoloration or an odor in the rice. • You can adjust the amount of water and/or rice to your own taste preferences. 4

****** Page 6 ****** Washing Rice When rice is milled some bran and residues adhere to the surface of the rice. You can remove these residues by first washing the rice with water before cooking. This will remove excess starch & residues, which will provide you with much whiter, fluffier rice. Remember to always use the measuring cup provided to accurately measure the rice. Add the desired amount of rice to the Mini Rice Cooker Inner Pot. Fill with cold water until all of the rice is submerged. Wash the rice by simply stirring the rice around in the water and rubbing between your hands. You will notice that the color ofthe water will become cloudy as the rice is cleaned. Without spilling the rice tip the Inner Pot to remove the cloudy water and repeat several times until the water remains clear. Cooking other types of rice Your Mini Rice Cooker can handle a wide variety or rice such as long grain rice, wild rice, yellow rice, brown rice, basmati rice, etc. When cooking brown rice, it will be necessary to increase the amount of water by 1/2 cup more than the standard short grain white rice recipe. Adjust to suit your own personal taste. e If the rice cooker switches to WARM before the food is done, you will need to add more liquid. Foods that are overly sweet or oily can cause the rice cooker to switch to WARM earlier than desired. If this happens, add some liquid like water, wine, stock, milk or juice. When baking in the rice cooker, it is usually necessary to push COOK more than once. You will need to wait for about 5 minutes after the machine switches to WARM to be able to press it back to COOK. This is normal. The temperature of the WARM setting is a little over 180 degrees. This is hot enough to very gently cook foods and far too hot for any bacteria to grow or for food to spoil. It is very safe to keep foods at this setting for several hours. Do not double recipes in the rice cooker. The tightly closed lid will force excess liquid out the steam vent if you do. CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE DO NOT immerse the mini rice cooker in water. Clean the mini rice cooker housing with a damp cloth. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners as this would scratch the surface of the housing. Wash the cooking pot, lid, measuring cup and scoop in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. Do not place parts in the dishwasher. 5
