Pasta doubles in size when cooking. For best results, do not overload your Rice Cooker. Fill the inner bowl no more than 3/4 full with water. Use the following chart for maximum pasta amounts for common Rice Cooker sizes.
Check the inner bowl of the Rice Cooker to determine it's size. The water fill lines indicate number of cups of capacity.
