This setting extends preheating for better absorption of seasoning.Also, the cooking temperature is slightly lower than regular white rice, to avoid ingredients from boiling over.PorridgeInstead of cooking rice in larger amounts of water and risk making it sloppy, use the porridge setting to cook fluffy porridge. Cooking temperature is slightly lower than regular white rice, to be cooked longer for soft texture.Cake Use the Cake menu setting to bake cakes inside the rice cooker.Howâ€™s that for versatility?Steam Steam your favorite foods. Steaming function can be lengthened or shortened by adjusting time setting.MICOM (Microcomputer) TechnologyAided by microcomputer technology, this category of rice cooker takes having rice on your menu from â€œoccasionalâ€ to â€œseriousâ€.Basically, the microchip does all the thinking for you, as far as adjusting cooking times and temperatures according to the type of rice you are cooking, and timing the pre-soaking of the raw grains and the final â€œwaitâ€ period during steaming.MICOM allows the cooker to have multiple functions on its menu, making it a necessity for any avid rice fan who wants to incorporate rice into her daily diet.How it WorksConventional rice cookers simply turn on and off in reaction to temperature.
