30 Cup RiceMaster Electric Rice Cooker & Warmer

Fully NSF approved cook and hold capable rice cooker.

Cook and serve from the same unit. Automatically cooks rice to perfection and keeps it hot for serving. The insulated double wall body has heating elements to more evenly warm rice than a bottom heat only rice cooker. The hinged, heated cover reduces heat loss. The attractive stainless steel exterior is easy to clean. Made by Town in the USA with industrial components.

RiceMasters will cook different kinds of rice. With practice, you will perfect the correct proportions of rice to water for your preferred type of rice. Steamed rice is only the beginning–recipes are included in the manual for rice pilaf, jambalaya, sweet rice and Mexican rice.

How much rice does this unit cook?

The 57130/1 has an uncooked capacity of 30 cups (roughly 11 lbs) which yields 60 cups of cooked rice (roughly 24 lbs). Town rice cookers use the 6 ounce Asian standard. Ratios of water to rice will vary depending on recipes and varieties of rice.

Do I have to cook using the full stated capacity?

The full capacity does not need to be cooked at a time.  Cook times will decrease as the capacity decreases.  The minimum amount of rice will depend on recipes but can be around 10 cups of uncooked rice.

Do the 230 volt units work with 208 or 220 volt power supplies?

The units are designed for usage on 230 volt systems.  They will operate on 220 or 208 volt systems, but with decreased heater plate output, increasing cook times.

What rice warmer should I pair with this unit?

While this unit can hold rice for up to 12 hours, you may want to transfer the cooked rice immediately so another batch can be cooked.  30 cup Town rice cookers pair well with our 56916 18 quart rice warmers.
