How many people are you feeding?A 3 cup rice cooker is best suited for
singles, couples and small families of around four or less people. 5 cup
rice cookers can easily feed around 4 to 7 people at once although if
you’re feeding 7 people or more, its better to get a 8 cup or 10 cup
rice cooker. A good rule of thumb, its safer to choose rice makers that
will have at least one cup capacity for each individual served.
