The most basic model of a rice cooker consists of a main body and an inner cooking container, which are both surrounded by an aluminium electric heating plate. The plate is controlled by a thermostat, which controls the amount of water heated to boiling. After the cooking process is complete, the electric rice cooker automatically switches to the low-power "warming" mode. At this point, the rice is ready for serving.
A typical rice cooker has an aluminium electric heating plate, and the inner pot is usually made of aluminum. After you put the food in, turn the power on, and wait for the indicator to illuminate. The temperature gauge will go off when the Curie temperature has been reached. The heat-insulating indicator lights up once the Curie temperature is reached. Once this temperature has been reached, the main switch contact is cut through the connecting rod and the cooking indicator will light.
Another important feature of the cooker is the temperature-limiting temperature protection element. This element is found in many electric rice cookers. The bimetallic strip temperature controller will automatically cut off the power if the temperature rises past a certain limit. The bimetallic strip will then be removed from the inner pot and will automatically shut off the power supply. The high temperature protection element is also a great feature for rice cookers.
The main body of a rice cooker is made of steel, and the inner pan is made of aluminium. The inner cooking pan is located inside the outer shell, and the main heating plate is weighed down by a thermal-sensing device and electric heating plate. The electric heating plate can quickly reach a boiling temperature, and the thermo-limiting device will gauge its contents. This is why many models are equipped with the thermal-sensing element to ensure that the rice is cooked to the desired level.
In addition to its function as a heat-regulating element, an electric heating plate is commonly used in rice cookers, electric hot pots, and frying pans. When the food is placed inside an electric rice cooker, the electrical heating plates will heat the inner aluminum pot. Once the inner aluminum pot reaches a temperature that exceeds the Curie temperature, the main switch contact will be disconnected. The resulting temperatures can lead to damage to the appliance.
The temperature-limiting element is necessary for the electrical heating plate to be safe. A high-temperature protection element will cut off the power when the temperature of the water rises to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. A high-temperature controller will protect the rice by identifying this temperature and automatically switching the electric heating plate off. Afterward, the electric heating plate will switch to the warming mode. This step is critical to the safety of your rice cooker.
The cooking indicator lights up once the food has been added to the electric rice cooker. Once the cooking indicator is on, the electric hot plate will heat the inner cooker. The inner pot is usually made of aluminum. The Curie temperature is the highest temperature a rice cooker can reach. When the Curie temperature reaches this level, the magnetic heating plate will lose its magnetism and the power will be cut off. The main switch contact will be disconnected, and the power supply will continue to run.
An electric rice cooker must have a temperature-limiting element, such as a magnetic steel or bimetallic strip, in order to prevent overheating. If the temperature reaches this point, the temperature-limiting magnetic steel will lose its magnetism. After this point, the main switch contact will be disconnected through the connecting rod. This is necessary for the electric rice cooker to be safe. The electrical hotplate must not exceed the Curie or the power limit to be safe.
The main part of the electric rice cooker consists of an inner cooking pan that sits inside an outer shell. The inner pan contains the rice. The thermal-sensing device weighs down the electric heating plate and measures the temperature of the pan. Upon reaching this temperature, the cooking indicator and the heat-insulating indicator light up. It is possible to reactivate the heating element and turn the power off completely.
