Hi, I’m Mary Rogers, director of marketing communications for Cuisinart. Today, we’re going to talk about our Fuzzy Logic Rice Plus Multi Cooker. This is a great product that’s very versatile, and you can do a lot of things with it. First of all, it does six kinds of rice, including risotto and sushi. You can use it as a slower cooker. You can use it to steam vegetables. You can use it to make homemade soup. You can even use it to reheat foods you haven’t cooked in the multi cooker. Some of the other great features are you can use it to make oatmeal, and the other thing is you can use it to do some quick cooking.
So let’s look inside and see what we have. Inside, you have your removable pot, which I’ve put a little bit of chicken broth in here and rice and set it up in advance so that we can make rice. The other thing is that the inside lid here is removable. It’s really easy to operate, and it’s great when you want to take it out for easy cleaning. Then you also notice in the top, this is our steam release valve. This also removes for cleaning. It’s really easy to use. On the side, we give you a little holder, which is great so you can put in your rice paddle and scoop, which are accessories that come with it. You can put it on this side or the other side.
To program your rice cooker, it’s very easy. We have a menu option. We have finish time for some functions. We have time display, keep warm, off, and start. The first thing you want to do is program the clock time. I did it here already, but I’ll show you how to do it. You hold down the hour button until it lights up and starts flashing. You hold the hour button down to advance. If you hold it down, it’ll advance quicker. Or the minute button. When you’re done, it’ll flash. When it’s done flashing, it’ll be set. You can use the finish time for some functions.
When you’re going to do that, the way to set it is first you pick your menu function. I’m going to pick soft white rice. Then you hold down finish time until it blinks. Then you pick your finish time, the same way we set the clock. Then it’ll blink. Then you’ll press start because that’s like programming it. Then the finish time will light. I’m going to press off again so I can show you some other things. Then we have the keep warm function. The keep warm function also works with some of the program functions so that after you’re done cooking, it’ll switch automatically to keep warm. Keep warm will keep working for 24 hours. You can also just use the keep warm function as it is by setting it this way.
See how it blinks again, and you press the button. You can tell it how long to keep warm. It’ll flash. When it’s set again, it’ll stop flashing. The other thing you can do is this will show how much is remaining. If you want to see what time it is when in other functions, you just press the time display again. It’ll give you the current time. Fuzzy Logic is a technology that monitors your cooking and the food you have in your Rice Plus Multi Cooker. It makes sure it’s done exactly perfect every time. This Rice Plus Multi Cooker has its own brain. I know I mentioned you had the paddle and scoop, but you also get a rice cup of a one-cup measure, and you get a steaming basket. When you’re going to use your cooker for steaming, make sure you put your basket in there.
All the removable parts are dishwasher safe. It’s so easy to use. You can do so many different things with it. It’s a great product to have in your home kitchen.
