Non Toxic Rice Cooker

Good quality cooking requires good quality cooking ingredients as well as good quality cooking appliance. If the cooking appliance is not hygienic, then there is a possibility to become poisonous the food that you have prepared and that is not wise to take. As a safe food conscious person, we always like to have non toxic cookware as the toxic elements of cookware never affect the food qualities. So, if you ever plan to buy a rice cooker, we suggest you to buy non toxic rice cooker.

Toxic and Non-Toxic:

But the question is, what is the term “toxic” and “non toxic” in case of cookware or rice cooker? Yes, I want to tell you about toxic and non toxic term in short. If I try to explain easily then I have to say that non toxic elements create poison which is harmful for human being. There is non-stick coating layer on the top of cook pot which we call it Teflon and the scientific name of the Teflon is Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). As per research of Center For Disease Control (CDC) the high temperatures can change the Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) into Toxic Perfluorooctanoic  Acid (PFOA).

The modern trend:

So the modern rice cooker manufacturers are now using the alternative s of Teflon which is non toxic and we may call it healthy rice cooker. All of them have the latest technology, features, functionality and so on. So we always suggest you to use non-toxic rice cooker for your health safety. There are many types of rice cookers in the market but how do you know which one is toxic and which one is non-toxic? To find the answer to that question, we will now move on to that discussion about the properties of non-toxic and food grade healthy rice cooker. We firmly believe that this discussion will serve as the best buying guide for you to choose the right product.

The most common information and check list for buying Non-Toxic Rice Cooker

There are so many types of rice cookers with different types of technologies and features which make the buyers in difficult situation to choose the perfect one. It is difficult to understand which rice cooker is the best to meet their all possible demands.  So we have tried to sort-out some suggestions and rice cooker features that you can follow to buy. Please go through the following suggestions and think about these features while you are going to buy a rice cooker

Use Teflon free inner pot rice cooker

Still we are not all aware about the non-stick coated inner pot that makes the foods toxic and it is harmful for health. But now it is the right time to be aware about safe food. So we need to know how food poisoning occurs during cooking and it slowly enters our body causing various diseases and harming our bodies.

Teflon is the main component of non-stick coating in cooking pot. Many researchers found that Teflon can spread so many toxic chemicals into the foods if the Teflon coated cooking pot gets scratched or overheated. So we always recommend you to use Teflon free inner pot rice cooker.

Cooking Capacity

Before choosing a rice cooker you should confirm the cooking capacity of the rice cooker as it can meet your requirement. Each seller or manufacturer defines the rice cooking capacity in different way. Some sellers express that how much rice it can cook and some sellers say how much cooked rice the pot can contain. So be sure about that what they are saying and what your desire requirement is.

For an example, if any seller says that the capacity is 3 cups uncooked, then we assume that the rice cooker can cook maximum 3 cups of rice. If the capacity is 6 cups cooked then we say it can hold 6 cups rice after cooking.  From our experiences we found that rice size becomes double after cooking.  So w we see that the size is 3 cups then we assume there is possibility to obtain 6 cups of cooked rice.

Find out the perfect size

Since the price of rice cooker can be higher or lower due to the difference in size, if you want to get the right use of your money, you must buy the right size cooker according to your needs. Power consumption also depends on the size of a rice cooker also. So it will waste your money if you buy bigger size than you need. So we like to advise you to think about the size before buying a rice cooker.

Functionality

Now the manufacturers have included so many modern and innovative functionalities to the rice cookers. You should look ahead those for getting optimum benefits. Today rice cookers are using not only for rice cooking but also to prepare other dishes. Some rice cookers have only the basic functions for cooking rice only and they are comparatively cheap than other multi-functional rice cookers. Those multi-functional cookers are time saving also. There is non toxic rice cooker with starch separator functionalities. So it’s your choice which you want.

Must be user friendly

How useful a device is, that depends on how easily a user can use it. If you have to follow the user manual each and every time for using the rice cooker that you have bought, that seems to be that the rice cooker is not user friendly. All the models and brands available in the market are not same. There are so many rice cookers that you can operate with single button. We hope you are able to use easily these types of rice cooker. So we suggest you about your rice cooker to know how to use it and how user friendly the device is.

 Timer facilities

Do you want to have ready cooked food when you return home in the evening? If you say yes, then you should consider the timer features of the rice cookers, one of the latest facilities of modern cookers. To avail this advantage from your cooker you will use delay timer or delay start option.  Have a plan when you want the ready cooked rice, then set the delay timer option as per your required plan. Just wait up to that time and you get ready cooked fresh rice. This is a wonderful feature for those who don’t have more time to cook at home and always remain busy for outdoor activities. Now think about your own situation.

Power consumption

Energy efficiency is another convenient feature for modern home appliance technology. But many buyers never consider this parameter.  They don’t think about the future impact on regular expenses.  Your monthly electricity consumption will increase a lot due to daily use unless your cooker is energy efficient. So please give a little attention on power consumption.

Should be easy to clean

We always think about how to save time during kitchen activities. So if you are busy to wash your cooker for whole night that would be foolish. You should not take much time to wash your rice cooker. So to choose dishwasher friendly inner pot will be smart decision.

This was our short guide to help you for choosing a non toxic rice cooker. We hope these points are more than enough to select the best affordable rice cooker. Now we are going to give a short review of some non-toxic healthy rice cookers of different brands and models that can be more helpful for you.

Faq:

What are the common diseases caused by this use of non-stick inner pot rice cooker?

Non-stick inner pot creates different types of toxin that cause the diseases like tumor, cancer etc. It slowly damages our brain, kidneys, lungs, thyroid and liver.

Why should I use Teflon-free non toxic rice cooker?

Teflon is the main component of non-stick layer of non-stick rice cooker. It generates harmful chemicals like Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in high temperature which creates different diseases in human body. So we should use Teflon-free rice cooker.

Is there any bad effect of aluminum based cooking pot?

Previously most pots had a non-stick coating on aluminum. When this non-stick coating is damaged or lifted, the aluminum coating comes out which mixes with the food and creates toxins that damages our brain, kidneys, lungs, thyroid and liver. Which later leads to various diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer etc.
