    Thanks for your help

    When the rice is done, the rice cooker makes beep sound.
    How can I tell her in this case?

    Should I say..

    A: Hey, your rice cooker makes beep sound! -> I think it sounds a bit strange

    And,,,

    is this sentence correct? can I say like this?

    B: I think Iím abnormal, you see how much I eat.

    Re: your rice is done

    Just one "beep"? Maybe two or three?


    Perhaps you could say:
    Your rice cooker goes beep, beep.
