Yes, this microwave Rice Cooker will cook white or brown rice in your microwave. Brown rice will take longer to cook. Each microwave Rice Cooker comes with an instruction booklet with direcetions for cooking white and brown rice.

Question

Height & width dimensions?

After reading up on the reviews and Q&A, I'm definitely buying this. We're also shopping for a microwave, and I don't want to buy one that the microwavealbe rice cooker can't fit in. We're buying everything online, so can't check it out in the store. What is the height and width of this Progressive International Microwave Rice Cooker? Thank you for your time and assistance! :)

Not sure the plastic type but it is a microwave rice cooker that I have used to that purpose. It is the softer type plastic so oily ingredients should be avoided. They would most likely stain or etch this plastic.

answer 2
Yes, this cooker was designed to be used in the microwave and is BPA free. When cooking rice we recommend adding a pinch of salt to the rice and cooking it at 70% power to prevent "boil over".

We use ours in the microwave and it makes perfect rice. Just "fluff" it up a bit after cooking but before serving. It's great!

You could use it to steam veggies oil free, but it would be more like boiling because it has no basket or strainer. You could add only a small amount of water and get the same affect as steaming.

Yes, this microwave Rice Cooker can also steam vegetables. Place vegetables into the Rice Cooker, add a 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water to the vegetables. Cooking times will vary depending on the type of vegetables you are steaming.

Below is the web address of this set on the manufacturer's website.
Down at the bottom left you will see a link to download the PDF where it says use and care. I do this with every product I buy, almost all manufacturer's have this now. Plus it's easier to zoom in and read a PDF. Plus I can print it if I need to. I also back up this folder using free online backups like Microsoft's SkyDrive, DropBox, or Google Drive. I have the same folder synced on all my PC's so I can look up any manual on any PC. Or I can login and look them up online if away from home.

The general instructions for cooking brown rice in a microwave oven are:

1 cup uncooked brown rice
2 1/8 cups water

Cook on HIGH for 5 minutes, and on MEDIUM for 25 minutes. Do NOT stir at any point in the cooking process! Allow to rest 1 or more minutes, then "fluff" and serve.

I have a very similar rice cooker to this one, and these directions work fine.

answer 1
Smaller pasta could be cooked in this unit if done oil free. Spaghetti would have to be broken to fit the smaller bowl size. No strainer is included. This is a softer type plastic and oily items are not recommended.

By
TempleFugate
answer 2
Yes, you can use this Microwave Rice Cooker to make 1 to 4 servings of pasta. Be sure to use plenty of water or the pasta will not cook properly. Add salt to the water and use very hot tap water, not cold water.

Yes. Use the measuring cup that is included. Fill it once to the top with uncooked rice and then use the cup to fill water in it 2 times adding both cups of water to the rice. After it's finished cooking in the microwave you will end up with about 2-3 servings of cooked rice. If you no longer have the included cup, just use a half cup or cup. Just remember it's 1 part rice and 2 parts water. Add a couple of extra tablespoons of water if you want a softer texture to the rice.
