Is it ok to cook rice in my rice Cooker and use the steaming tray to steam uncooked Italian sausages at the same time?

The steam tray sits on top and has holes in it, I don't know if it's safe to cook uncooked pork over the rice, since the pork drippings will land on the rice.

I plan to cook about 4-5 cups of rice (uncooked).

    Do not cook the raw sausages at the same time that you're cooking rice, because of the difference in cooking time and food safety.

    Raw rice is usually fully cooked in 25 minutes or so, but the sausage will require a longer cooking time and the juices from the raw sausage dripping on the cooked rice compromise food safety. As such, cook the sausage separately from the rice.

    It will all be cooked so it is safe, but the sausages might not be done unless you precook them.

    To keep Cooked sausages warm-fine. Not uncooked sausages.
