Tupperware Microwave Rice Maker

This rice cooker is everything it promises to be. In fact it is so good at its job that people love it! I am sometimes asked questions about its use and what can be cooked in it, how long rice and grains need to cook and if it is easy to clean, so I am sharing the package insert that comes with the rice cooker with you to answers those questions.

Finally, perfect rice every time. With the Tupperware® Microwave Rice
Maker you can cook almost any type of rice and/or grain fast, easy, and
virtually mess free. By cooking and serving in one container, you can
save time, energy and space in your kitchen.

Key Features and Benefits
• The Tupperware® Microwave Rice Maker is easy to use. Simply fill
the base with the ingredients, close securely and place in the
• Cook and serve in the same container.
• Leftover rice and/or grains can also be stored in the refrigerator
and re-heated in the microwave as needed. Note: The cover is not
liquid tight.
• The Microwave Rice Maker comes in three parts: Base, Insert and
Cover. Assembly instructions are conveniently etched on the Insert.
• The Microwave Rice Maker features a unique double cover that
collects the foam created during cooking and channels it into the
recessed area of the cover, then drains it back into the base. Your
microwave stays clean and safe from spills.
• Maximum fill for rice and water located on the outside of the base.
• The cover handles fold down and lock on the base, giving you a solid
grip when removing hot rice from the microwave.
• For best results, keep rice and water within the guidelines marked on
the container and use the correct power levels and cooking times for
your microwave.
• Makes up to 4 cups of cooked rice.

To Use
• Fill the base with rice first and then add water, paying attention to the
maximum fill line. To avoid boiling over, do not exceed maximum
• Place the insert on to the base with the rimmed side up.
• Line up the handles of the lid with the handles on the side of the base.
Snap the handles in place by folding down and “clicking” the handles
of the cover on the handles of the base to lock them in place.

For Best Results
• Rinse the rice unless otherwise stated on the packaging.
• Use cold water.
• When cooking with salt (1 tsp.) add 2 – 4 minutes of cooking time.
• Allow rice to stand 5 minutes before serving.
• Fluff the rice after cooking with a plastic non-scratch Tupperware

Cooking Guidelines for 4 servings:
All Rice and/or Grain needs to stand for at least 5 minutes before
servings unless otherwise noted below.

• The Microwave Rice Maker is safe for temperatures between
32° - 248°F/ 0° - 120°C.
• Do not use in the freezer and do not exceed 248°F/ 120°C.
• Do not cook rice without water.
• Do not add fats, oils, or liquids that contain fat such as milk. Use only
water for cooking rice.
• The Microwave Rice Maker is not suitable for making risotto or rice
• Do not use abrasives or sharp utensils to avoid scratching.
• Respect the maximum fill line. Do not overfill to avoid boil-over. For
rice with a high starch content, cook small quantities.

microwave oven.

• Dishwasher safe.
• Refrigerator safe.
• Rinse the entire container immediately after use with cold water to
prevent strong odors or stains.

product and is not covered by the Tupperware® guarantee.

No Wonder Tupperware Products are so Great!

Tupperware Design Team Earns International Honors

What does Tupperware have in common with brands such as Bose, BMW, LG Electronics, Adidas, Nokia, Apple and Siemens? Cutting-edge design.

Like these companies in years past, Tupperware received one of the most prestigious distinctions in the design world, the red dot: design team of the year for 2009. The award honors design teams that continuously distinguish themselves through groundbreaking design and by setting new industry standards.

“For more than 60 years, Tupperware has been developing functional products with practical value, using simple but nevertheless ingenious, and definitely distinctive design,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zee, initiator of the red dot design awards. “With the typical Tupperware design, the company has managed to give ingenious ideas an appropriate form for many years.

Tupperware’s success story is an example of continuous innovative potential which has been shaping our daily lives for generations. For this achievement we are honoring the Tupperware Design Team with the highest distinction that exists in the design world.”

Have you ever wondered who designs new Tupperware products? We often joke at Tupperware parties that it must be designed by a woman because it is so well thought out! lol But if you click on the following link you will meet the design team and discover that more than 1/2 of them are men. Way to go guys! Keep up the good work. We love it when new products are launched!
