It's asking you to enter the name of your city. 确定 in this context corresponds to OK or Enter.

It might want your location in Chinese -- those rice cooker apps can be very fussy -- so just enter "Shanghai" in Chinese by copying this:

 

上海市

 

If you're in Germany, remember that the rice cooker will be starting and stopping according to Shanghai time.

Wow, that would be very... I can't find a word.

No idea why they want to know where the rice cooker is geographically located. Different air pressure? Or just so they can collect more information from customers.

“Different air pressure?”

 

Laugh all you want, but that seems to be the idea, using altitude as the measure.

 

So if the OP uses 上海市 best he lives at sea-level for perfect rice. In the middle of the night.

They probably have a word for that in German!

Just out of curiosity, why would one use a "rice cooker app" one one's phone instead of just pressing the appropriate buttons on the rice cooker itself? (Yes, I'm a dinosaur 古代人。)

The bright idea here is that you press those buttons on your phone while at work, say, so you've got a pot of hot fresh rice waiting for you when you walk in the door at home.

 

Whether that sort of convenience is worth about US$150 is another matter.
