Perfect for families. Effortlessly prepare up to 20 cups (10 cups uncooked) of virtually any kind of rice with the touch of a button. A keep warm function maintains the ideal temperature for up to 5 hours.
As a side dish or the main ingredient of an entire meal, nothing satisfies everyone quite like rice. And whichever type or style of rice you and the family prefer, the SR-Y18FGJ Rice Cooker and Steamer makes rice perfection automatic. Its large 10-cup uncooked rice capacity — 20 cups cooked — is ideal for larger amounts of great tasting, evenly cooked rice any time. The perfect capacity for families, family get-togethers and entertaining.
This high-quality, touch-button simple rice cooker/steamer is also a time-saving multi-tasker. While your rice is being prepared to perfection inside the cooker's inner pan, a food grade steaming basket and two-dish separator accessory on top can simultaneously prepare additional dishes. Now everyone can enjoy not only sumptuous rice and rice-based delicacies, but also healthy, freshly steamed spinach, carrots, broccoli, potatoes and other vegetables, plus a variety meats, and fish and seafood.
The super-tough, non-stick anchor-coated inner body not only eliminates clumping and sticking, it also makes after-dinner cleanup quick and simple. Panasonic's anchor coating is permanently bonded to the cooker/steamer's unbreakable polycarbonate inner body to evenly conduct and distribute heat for faster cooking and better tasting, uniformly prepared rice. Plus years of continual use with no loss of cooking efficiency.
Whichever rice or rice-complemented dish you prepare, a handy keep-warm function automatically activates when cooking is done to maintain an ideal serving temperature for up to 5 hours. And two sturdy, keep-cool handles make serving safe and simple, and feature rice scoop and glass lid holders for optimum ease and convenience.
Perfect rice and rice-based meals begin with the perfect measurements and accessories. To ensure the ideal proportions of water and rice, the Panasonic SR-Y18FGJ comes complete with a precise measuring cup and rice scoop in addition to the steamer basket and two-dish separator.
