Electric rice cooker, almost every family has, for people who love rice, but also every day to use.However, have you paid attention to the precautions of using rice cookers?”How to clean the inside of the rice cooker?””Can I continue to use the liner if the coating is lost or damaged?”…How to use rice cookers safely to cook a good meal?Let’s take a look at the professional answers.Choose the most important rice cooker liner!When buying rice cookers, we often pay attention to its style, volume, function, etc., but often ignore and rice “zero distance contact” inner bladder!The rice cooker is mainly composed of shell and inner bladder.Because the inner bladder is in direct contact with food, it can be said to be the most important part of the rice cooker, which plays a decisive role in the purchase of rice cooker.”At present, the inner liner of rice cooker on the market is more common with aluminum inner liner, alloy inner liner, stainless steel inner liner, ceramic inner liner, and glass inner liner, etc.”Zhang Zhaoming, deputy chief engineer of household electrical appliances Testing Center of China Household Electrical Appliances Research Institute, introduced that the most common collocation is aluminum liner + coating.Because metal aluminum has the characteristics of uniform heating and fast heat transfer, it is the preferred material for the liner of electric rice cookers.Aluminum liner can not be directly in contact with food, so the liner surface of this material will be covered with coating, mainly divided into teflon coating (that is, ptfe) and ceramic coating.Its main function is to prevent paste bottom or stick pot, easy to clean.”The coating on the inside of the rice cooker itself is acid and alkali resistant and not easy to be decomposed by high temperature.Sprayed on the aluminum liner for protection and anti-stick.”China health care association of professional committee of the food nutrition and safety reputation will ChangSunShuXia is introduced, the safe usage of the commonly used teflon coating temperature up to 250 ℃, daily use rice cooker of the high temperature is 180 ℃ or so, so no in the bladder coating fall off under the premise of normal use of the mould will not bring harm to human body, without having to worry about.The inner liner appears “paint off” should pay attention to!However, with the use of rice cookers for a long time or improper daily operation, often the liner is easy to “paint off”, this time is likely to produce health risks.Sun Shuxia explains that, first of all, it is easier to stick to the cooker after the inner liner “falls off the paint”, and the food heated by high temperature stuck to the inner liner for a long time is easy to scorched, producing carcinogens such as acrylamide.At the same time, the follow-up cleaning is also quite laborious, there are health risks.Even, if the coating falls off seriously, the liner is equivalent to an “aluminum liner”. At this time, if the liner continues to be used for a long time, the aluminum in the liner may be more ingested with food.Because aluminum is not an essential micronutrient, long-term exposure to aluminum may cause neurological changes and increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in adults.It also affects the body’s absorption of phosphorus, calcium and vitamin D, causing bone damage and deformation, leading to diseases such as rickets and osteoporosis.Compared with adults, children have a lower tolerance for aluminum, which is even more harmful.In addition, in order to save trouble, people often use rice cookers to cook and long-term storage of sweet and sour ribs, hot and sour soup and other heavy sour and heavy vinegar soup dishes.Acidic substances in food can further accelerate the dissolution of aluminum from exposed “aluminum bile”, which does not meet food safety standards and poses food safety risks.Zhang zhaoming also pointed out that when the inner coating falls off, it will lead to uneven heating of rice, resulting in problems such as sticking to the pot, pasting the bottom and drying the pot, affecting the use effect and nutritional value of cooking rice.Moreover, the liner with coating is mostly alloy aluminum. After the coating falls off, the aluminum base material of the liner will be exposed, leading to direct contact with food.Therefore, Zhang Zhaoming reminds, if it is found that the inner coating of the rice cooker has obvious scratches or has fallen off into a piece, it is best to stop using immediately and replace the product in time.Use rice cookers, pay attention to these points how to buy high-quality and safe rice cookers?Zhang recommends checking whether products have 3C marks when you buy them.The products of enterprises with CCC certification mark, good reputation and guaranteed after-sales service should be purchased.At the same time, we can pay attention to the energy efficiency labeling of products and choose products with higher energy efficiency labeling.In addition, choose rice cooker products according to the needs of the family, the volume and power of the rice cooker can be determined according to the population in the home and the amount of food used.In daily use, should pay attention to what habits, can prolong the use time of the rice cooker?Two experts offer answers.(1) Read the instructions carefully before use to understand the precautions and various functions of the product.Before use, ensure that the inner bladder of the electric cooker and the electric heating plate are clean, avoid water points, rice grains, etc., which will not only affect the effect of cooking, serious may cause the failure of the electric cooker.(2) It is best not to use metal spoon for lunch, so as not to damage the coating and affect the service life of the liner. It is recommended to choose wood or hot silica gel material.Do not put food in the cooker for a long time, especially not cook and store strong acid and alkali food.Avoid using the tank on other stoves.No air burning.In the case of dry burning, the temperature can reach more than 300℃ in a few minutes, which will lead to the release of some harmful substances and harm human health.(3) After use, it is necessary to clean the pot in time. For the rice pot with coating on the inner bladder, it is recommended to clean the inner bladder lightly with a soft cloth. Pay attention to not using rough cloth or steel wire ball to clean hard things, so as not to damage the coating and affect the service life of the inner bladder.Of course, everybody also can choose and buy to do not have coating directly the electric rice cooker product of the stainless steel material that pledges inner bladder, left out some taboos in using already so, healthy set his mind at again.In addition, under normal circumstances, the liner will be replaced every 3-5 years, but due to the use of different frequency of the rice cooker, the loss caused is not the same.So, want to combine actual use circumstance to consider.If there are obvious signs of shedding, it is time to change the rice cooker!(Health Times)
