I recently purchased a Zojirushi NP-GBC05 3 cup rice-cooker. I read through the manual and some instructions online. I have made 3 batches of rice so far and two of them have turned into a disaster.
Batch 1: Jasmine Rice 1 cup rice, washed, 1 cup water (probable Operator error, manual states 1cup to 1.25 cups rice/water) WHITE/MIXED setting result: coagulated mess
Batch 2: Sticky Rice 1 cup rice, not washed, 1 cup water SUSHI setting result: good batch
Batch 3: Basmati Rice 1 cup rice, washed, 1.5 cups water WHITE/MIXED setting result: coagulated mess
Why would both 1 and 3 give me coagulated messes?
This is my first rice cooker and first time using a rice cooker, it was cleaned after all batches, and no settings were configured besides the rice type. Just pressed the COOKING button.
