Is It Safe to Keep Rice Warm in a Rice Cooker?

It is safe to use an electric rice cooker to keep the rice warm.

But I don’t recommend you to keep the rice warm with the electric rice cooker all the time.

(1) There is no danger when the electric rice cooker is kept in the heat preservation state.

Because the electric rice cooker is controlled by a temperature sensor.

When the temperature in the electric rice cooker is lower than the set temperature in the keep warm mode, the electric rice cooker will start heating, and then it will stop heating when it reaches the set temperature.

Therefore, there is no danger that the electric rice cooker has been kept warm.

(2) I suggest you don’t keep the keep warm mode when using the electric rice cooker.

Too long time in the keep warm mode will easily cause the rice in the electric rice cooker to become blurred.

(3) If the electric rice cooker is in the heat preservation mode for a long time, its heating plate will be in a cycle of stopping, starting and stopping for a long time.

This will also affect the life of the electric rice cooker.

Therefore I do not recommend that you keep the electric rice cooker in the keep warm mode for a long time.
