A built-in thermostat maintains heat at a precise and uniform level so that you won't have to worry about over cooking the rice on one side of the pan. A special sheathed heating element heats the bottom of the pan directly to minimize heat loss and save energy. Pre-wash the rice by stirring in tap water. Drain out the water and repeat until the water comes out fairly clear.
