A new prototype of continuous belt rice steamer was proposed. Firstly, an introduction of working principle was made, and then by experiments and calculations, the parameters for steaming and cleaning processes were obtained respectively. The problems were also illustrated, such as running speed in steaming, how to controlling of the rice softness, and the operation of the spray system. Experimental results showed that the newly presented rice steamer had numerous benefits, such as simplified structure, fewer breakdown proportion, less service requirements, adjustable output, integration of cooking and cleaning,etc, which make it fit the concept for modern product design.
