Power consumption and energy usage of rice cooker and Steamer

A Rice cooker or rice steamer makes it easy to cook rice. It is an automated device that cooks rice using electricity. Modern electric rice cookers are equipped with sensors and precise heat control technologies to cook the rice perfectly. The power consumption and energy usage of the rice cooker can be calculated here. The power consumption of rice cookers ranges from 300 watts to 1100 watts. A typical rice cooker consumes 400 watts of power.

Enter the wattage, hours of usage, and cost per kWh. The energy usage calculator for rice cookers gives you the total energy consumed by them. Also, you can find how much power your rice cookers consume use. To check the current electricity price per kWh in your region refer to Global Electricity rates. It is necessary to enter the right cost per unit(kWh) to find the exact price.

Power usage of the device in watts as mentioned on its label.

Cost per unit:

The average cost per unit charged by the electric utility. Every country has different tariff rates. Visit: Global Electricity prices for details if you don’t know how much the utility company charges you per unit or kWH.

Units per day:

The number of units of electricity consumed by the load every day considering the entered operation hours.

Hours of usage:

The number of hours the load is used per day.

The electricity usage depends on the wattage and the number of hours of usage. The utility company charges you for the total kilowatt-hour of energy you have consumed. Kilowatt-hour is the product of the power consumption of the load and the number of hours of usage.

Power consumption of rice cooker

A typical rice cooker consumes 0.4 kWh of energy per hour. That means an hour of usage can cost you 0.048 cents.

Energy usage of Rice Cooker and Steamer

The working principle of an electric rice cooker is similar to that of an induction cooktop. An induction coil is present beneath the rice vessel. When powered up it produces an alternating magnetic field. This alternating magnetic field induces an eddy current in the vessel and the vessel heats up due to its internal resistance to the flow of eddy currents.
