Making sushi rice in a rice cooker is a simple and convenient way to prepare rice for sushi. Here is a step-by-step guide to making perfect sushi rice in your Appetite Automatic Pap Maker:


  • 4 cups sushi rice (serves 4 people)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Appetite Automatic Pap Maker Deluxe
  • Measuring cup
  • Mesh sieve or container to rinse the rice
  • Mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon or rice paddle


  1. Measure the amount of rice: Use the measuring cup from the Appetite Automatic Pap Maker to measure 4 cups of sushi rice.

  2. Rinse the rice: Rinse the sushi rice in a fine mesh sieve or in the rinsing container until the water runs clear. This will remove excess starch and help prevent the rice from becoming too sticky.

  3. Measure the rice and water: Add the rinsed rice to the inner pot of the pap maker. Add the correct amount of water according to the indicators under the "RICE" measuring line matching the number of cups of rice. In this case, add water to the indicator labeled 4 under the "RICE" measuring line.

  4. Cook the rice: Remove the stirrer from the lid of the pap maker. Close the lid securely and select the "RICE" function on the control panel and press "OK". This should take 20-35 minutes, depending on the amount.

  5. Prepare the sushi vinegar: While the rice is cooking, mix the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt in a small mixing bowl until the sugar and salt have dissolved.

  6. Rest the rice: Once the rice is cooked, allow it to rest for 10 minutes with the lid on. During this time, the rice will steam for extra fluffy results.

  7. Mix the sushi vinegar with the rice: Once the rice is rested, transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Add the sushi vinegar mixture to the cooked rice and mix gently with a wooden spoon or rice paddle. Be careful not to overmix the rice, as this can make it too sticky.

  8. Let the rice cool: Allow the rice to cool to room temperature before using it to make sushi.

Your sushi rice is now ready to use! It’s that easy. No matter if you want to try your hand at making Nigiri, Maki, or California roll, your automatic pap maker will prepare the perfect sushi rice for you.
