Cook various dishes in T-fal balanced living rice cooker
T-fal 20 cup rice cooker doesn’t have extra settings for cooking brown, basmati or any other type of rice. The instruction which comes with a steamer only says about white rice. If you are willing to cook other than white rice add more water if required or less.
For example: for cooking brown rice add more water as it needs more time for cooking. Use measuring cup which comes with it. T-fal provided this unit with safe to use serving spoon. It’s recommended to use this spoon or other wood or plastic spoon to prevent scratches on ceramic non-stick finish.
Use steamer basket that comes with the cooker to steam vegetables, chicken and seafood.
