The device

The rice cooker from Reishunger is delivered in a visually appealing cardboard box.

The first impression of the frame is very modern and very corresponding. In addition, this device has a warming function, a high-quality inner pot, a spoon, and a measuring cup.

In addition, an operating manual is enclosed, which has been designed to be very understandable and appealing.

The rice cooker is very easy to operate.

All you have to do is add water and rice to the pot, and due to the automatic switch-off and the burning protection, you don't have to worry about anything anymore.

As soon as the rice is cooked, the appliance automatically switches to HOT.

Included in the scope of delivery:

  • Steamer insert
  • Rice spoon
  • Measuring jug
  • Instruction manual
  • Inner pot
  • Rice spoon

The application

The handling of the rice cooker proves to be very simple.
Before using the appliance for the first time, clean the bowl, the lid and the basket with warm soapy water, rinse everything off and leave to dry.

In addition, you should boil water in the cooker for 20 minutes before using it for the first time, and rinse the rice in the sieve if you use any that needs to be washed beforehand.

First, you have to measure the desired amount of rice (in this case 500 g jasmine rice) using the measuring cup provided, in this case, there were 4 measuring cups filled to the top. For the amount of water, you should use the water level indicator inside the pot. In this case, one has to fill up the water up to 4 in the water level indicator.

Next, pour the rice into the inner bowl of the cooker and add the appropriate amount of water.

Then close the lid, connect the cable to the power supply and move the front control lever to the lowest position. Then the control light should light red and indicate COOK.

It takes 8 minutes for the 500 g rice to boil, and 5 minutes for the rice to boil. The smell of fresh rice is also very pleasant.

It is also possible to cook vegetables in parallel while rice is being cooked using steam.

After a total of 18 minutes, the rice is ready to cook and automatically switches to HOT.

In order to obtain an optimal result, you should now carefully open the lid and stir the rice properly with the enclosed spoon so that excess liquid can escape. You can then either serve the rice immediately or close the lid and enjoy the rice up to 8 hours later.

Result of the Reishunger Rice Cooker

The consistency of the rice is slightly more bite resistant compared to the other devices tested, but depending on your preference you can easily influence this by simply adding a little more water if you prefer the rice to be softer.

The temperature at the edge of the lid is 75°C after the rice is cooked and 30°C at the rack.

Compared to other tested rice cookers, the rice hardly sticks to the bottom of the pot thanks to the double non-stick inner pot.

The same test was done with a different type of rice (Basmati rice), where more water was used than stated in the instructions and the rice got a very good consistency, which is why I would recommend using a bit more water if you prefer a bit softer rice.


Before you start cleaning, be sure to remove the power plug and wait until the pot has cooled down completely.

Afterwards, you can clean the parts in warm rinsing water without any problems, but you should take care not to use aggressive cleaning agents in order not to damage the utensils. This appliance is not suitable for the dishwasher.
