1. Scope

Automatic electric rice cooker for the household or similar using, rated power below 2000W.

2. Selection criteria

To be selected into the Top10 rice cookers lists, the heat efficiency value and warming mode power should meet the following requirements:

Volume (V, Liter)

Heat efficiency value (%)

Warming power (W)

V<5L

≥85

≤60

V≥5L

≥85

≤80

3. Terms

Electricity cost (10 years): The electricity cost of rice cooker in 10 years, according to the annual electricity consumption below. The electricity price is set at 0.5 RMB per kWh. Unit: RMB.

Annual electricity consumption: The electricity consumed by rice cooker within one year. The typical daily electricity consumption of rice cooker is set as the electricity consumed by heating 80% rated volume water of the cooker from 25℃ to 95℃ and the electricity consumed on warming mood for half an hour. Annual electricity consumption is 365 days’ consumption, Unit: kWh.

Heat efficiency value: Heat efficiency value is the ratio between the energy certain water absorbed in certain time to the electricity energy consumed in the same time. Unit: %.

Warming power: The electricity energy consumed for the rice cooker working for an hour on warming mood. Unit: W·h.

Volume: The volume of the inside cooking space of the rice cooker. Unit: L.

National energy efficiency grade: The mandatory grading system for energy using products to disclose the energy performance to the consumers. Grade 5 is the minimum energy efficiency requirement for the market access and Grade 1 is the best for the monitors.

For rice cookers with metal inner pots, the MEPS is the requirement of grade 4. For non-metal inner pot rice cookers, the MEPS is the requirement of grade 5.
