How much rice does this unit cook?

The 57137 and 571358 have an uncooked capacity of 37 cups (roughly 13 lbs) which yields 74 cups of cooked rice (roughly 28 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.

Does the 230 volt unit work with 208 or 220 volt power sources?

The units are designed and optimized for usage on 230 volt systems.  They will operate on 220 or 208 volt systems, but with decreased heater plate output, leading to slightly longer cook times.
