Cooking for community where food is to be prepared for hundreds of people sometimes becomes difficult. The innovator has developed a rice cooker where steam generated by boiling water in a drum is used to cook 25 kg of rice each in two different cookers. The cooking time for the first batch is an hour but reduces to 45 minutes in successive batches as water is already hot. This cooker is used in community functions to cook large quantities of rice.
