Question about new rice cooker and minimum rice portions

duckdown | Feb 6, 201410:11 AM

Hey folks, I bought a rice cooker at Costco today, it's a 10 Quart "Tiger" brand that looks great and was a great price.

Was just about to use it when the instruction manual is saying the minimum amount of rice you can use is 2 CUPS ? 2 cups is a gigantic amount of uncooked rice, way too much for 2 people. What gives?

Can I ignore this warning and just use appropriate portions with 1 cup of uncooked rice? Or is something catastrophic going to happen, like burned or improperly cooked rice?

What is the reasoning behind setting such a high minimum amount of rice?

Just curious if anyone could give any insight on this, because it's going back to Costco if there is no other way around the 2 cups minimum

Thanks for your time all!
