Japanese Rice Cooker
Go with the grain.
In Japanese, hario means “the king of glass,” and this heat-resistant number totally lives up to the name. For the softest, fluffiest rice you ever did see, measure your rice and liquid using the handy internal measuring guide (or the list below), simmer on high till the top whistles, then turn off the heat. After a quick 15 minute steam, your rice is ready for anything. That little vent lets out extra steam to help control overflow, and the glass lid gives you a front row seat for the magic happening inside. Now all you have to do is opt for the little guy or larger size (perfect for dinner parties).
For picture-perfect white rice use the following ratios:
- 3/4 cup rice to 220ml (for small pot) or 200ml water (for large pot) (200-220g, about 7-7.5 oz.)
- 1.5 cups rice to 400 ml water (400g, about 14 oz.)
- 2.25 cups rice to 600 ml water (600g, about 21 oz.)

Care & Notes +-
Note that 1 Japanese cup of rice (one go) is equal to approximately 3/4 US cups. Directions included in box will be given in this increment, and cooking guides on the inside of the pot are meant to be used with this measurement.
Hario recommends rinsing your rice in a colander and then soaking it for 30 minutes before cooking.
Rice cooking time varies by rice harvest season, variety, and grain size. The above directions are a general guide for white rice and may need to be adjusted to create your perfect batch.
If ceramic pot becomes discolored or rice gets burned on, mix 2 tsp. of baking soda with water and boil in the pot for 5-10 minutes. Rinse and scrub.
