Can Rice Cookers Catch Fire?

No.

If you buy a quality rice cooker and use it correctly, the rice cooker will not catch fire.

There is a small chance that a rice cooker will catch fire, but try to avoid it.

(1) Please purchase rice cooker from regular channels.

If you buy a quality rice cooker and use it correctly, the rice cooker will not catch fire.

I suggest that you buy a rice cooker with guaranteed quality from regular sales channels, or you can also buy a rice cooker with an automatic power-off function.

(2) Do not overload the rice cooker.

Adding water above the maximum level can also cause the rice cooker to explode and fire, and it can also lead to excessive moisture content in the rice.

If the overflow valve of the rice cooker leaks or the valve at the bottom of the rice cooker leaks, be sure to turn off the unit and unplug it immediately to prevent the situation from getting worse.

(3) Please use rice cooker in a safe place.

When you use and store the rice cooker, do not stack explosive and flammable items such as plastics and paper products around it.
