Presto 05813 16-Cup Digital Stainless Steel Rice Cooker/Steamer – Awesome

Great product im a sushi lover so i used i lot have a good price is not fulled auto but does the job i have it for over a year and still working great help me a lot, save a lot of time i dont have to worry about the rice cooking any more, have a very good qualty of material well make im really happy with the product.

I am loving this rice cooker. When i moved in with my white fiancé, i was deprived of rice. So obviously, i had to go out of my way to buy myself an essential asian craving. This is the perfect rice cooker. Cooks rice fast and has multiple uses.

This is my first rice cooker, and after reading the reviews, i decided to buy it. I am very happy with this cooker. It is easy to use, and rice comes out nice and fluffy. Make sure you clean it after every use, read the instructions, and you will have no problems. I havent so far, and i use it a lot.

We use this rice cooker regularly for our large family. The rice comes out perfect every single time.

Love rice, so finally bought a rice cooker, and this one has been perfect for me. I’ve cooked jasmine and red rice in it multiple times (had it for over a month) and my rice turns out perfect every time. Very easy to clean, nonstick functions well, and measurements within cooker and rice cup make it easy and convenient.

It’s been a good 20 months since i got this rice cooker and so far it’s going strong. It’s still working so well that i forgot i had it for 20 months already. It works like how a rice cooker is supposed to and the steaming basket is a plus. I sometimes use the rice cooker solely for steaming and it works great for that too. I know it says at least 4 cups of rice but i’ve been cooking 1-2 cups at a time and that works fine too.

  • If Only The Steamer Basket Was Metal Instead of Plastic
  • Rice Choice!
  • Make life easier

This is extremely easy to use and consistently makes good rice, something i’ve never been able to do on my own easy to use and clean.

We use this rice cooker so frequently that the last one broke after about a year and a half. We bought the exact thing because we love how it functions and believe that it failed because we use it so much.

The rice comes out perfect everytime.

Works great, before i bought this i almost never made rice because i hated the mess that always followed. This is quick & simple to make and just as quick to clean.

Wow this rice cooker is amazing. It makes good rice and the speed is impeccable. I put the rice in and start making my food and the rice is done almost instantly. I’ve never seen a rice cooker cook so fast.And i got a good price on the thing also. Very happy with this purchase.

I have gone through so many rice cookers in the past few years. We use it for more than just cooking rice. We use it to cook all in one meals all the time. I had tried to downsize to a smaller one, however, it just did not work for my familty. This cooker makes the rice come out nice and fluffy without being sticky.

Overall performance good, just spits out water from vent when boiling – can be messy and hard to clean.

Easy to use and easy to clean. I’ve made rice and vegetables. Looking forward to trying steel cut oats and quinoa.

Makes perfect rice everytime, whether it’s 2 cups or 10. Have cooked many other grains and even oatmeal on the brown rice setting. Has a decent standby warmer as well. Use it at least twice a week, since i purchased it.

I have used the rice cooker several times, with great success. My only complaint is that the measuring marks on the interior of the cooker are simply raised stamps, covered with the same black, non-stick coating as the rest of the pot. Now for you young-uns, that might not be a problem, but i needed to put on my reading glasses and shine a flashlight into the interior in order to read the markings. A small quibble, i suppose, for an otherwise fine product.

Cooks 4 to 16 cups of rice and keeps it serving hot for hours

I could never seem to make rice it was always to soggy but now it comes out fine very good product.

I can cook enough rice for my household of 5 people without an issue. There is a little problem of cleaning this thing, as the rise starch gets into places you wouldn’t expect and it gets outside through the steam vent. It doesn’t usually puddle unless you overfill it with rice and water. All in all, i think that i would purchase this again.

This is working perfectly and cooks my brown rice to perfection. I do not even select the brown rice option. And so far, has not stopped working.

I ordered this last year & still using it everyday. So fa,r this is the best brand & design compare to my past rice cookers. Very satisfied with the result & affordable.

Good cooker at a super price. A little bit of learning curve to find perfect water/rice ratio, but isn’t that always the case?. I know my friends here in hawaii spend over one hundred bucks on a tiger cooker, but for the life of me, i don’t see why. Maybe i am just a gaijin, but this steamer makes me happy.

Very happy with this rice cooker purchase. It’s a good weighted cooker that has a nice,sleek design. If your kitchen is black and chrome it will fit right in among your fixtures (if that’s the sort of thing you worry about. ) the best part about this cooker is honestly how easy it is to clean. The steam hole topper just pops right out and comes apart to make sure your cooker stays good and sterile. Same with the water catching side cupnow, when you first get this be sure to give the inner,cooking pot a bit of a wash. It does have a metal/chemical kind of smell when it first cooks, and that will help minimize that issue. The only semi-complaint is that its a little annoying to open. You have to be a little firm with the button, but that does ensure its a snug fit. Overall, fantastic, and does the job.

Simple to use

So far so good with this thing. I originally ordered the oster one that says it holds 6 cups of cooked rice, and that seems to be a popular model, but, what they don’t mention is that if you fill it with rice to its capacity, it no longer contains the headroom needed to steam stuff in the basket. So i realized i needed a bigger one, and this one seems just great. I make rice for two, but love to have leftovers for a couple of days, and this is perfect for that amount. The presto is a nice design, easy to use, and the only flaws i can think of are 1) the steamer basket is plastic, and it ought to be metal, so that i don’t have to worry about chemicals leeching into my food, and 2) with the lid open it’s actually a bit tall, and it bumps against the bottom of my kitchen cabinets. However, this is probably a knock on most products in this category, and also a knock on the guy who installed my cabinets too low. So get this one if you want a lot of rice, and you are ok with a plastic steamer basket. I actually don’t think any of the under-$50 rice cookers have anything other than a plastic steamer basket, but i’m not sure. The rice bucket is metal, of course, as it should be, and can go in the dishwasher.

It is not so great on white rice. Basket can put veggies, meat whatever and have it all ready at the same time. Juices run down into the rice for added flavor.

It the absolute best rice cooker i’ve ever used. Very easy to clean and never burns rice.

Great rice cooker, i can’t believe i never had one of these before and was fortunate to pick this one as my first. Very easy to use, just add rice, water, close the lid, and wella, perfect rice every time. Also has a ‘stay warm’ feature that keeps rice warm for several hours. Would highly recommend this.

I wanted an aluminum/plastic free cooking container. This is affordable, sturdy and the rice container part is all steel (this are a lot of plastic components to the cooker, but the pot itself is steel). Tip: i measure out the rice we want, put it into the cooker in the morning with the water (two parts water to one part rice) and let it sit all day. When i get home from work, the rice has absorbed the water and cooks up in no time.

We are very pleased with the quality of the product. It is easy to use and comes with helpful accessories.

This rice cooker is working for me. It seems to get the bottom of the rice a little overcooked but putting more water in helps. The steamer is really nice too, and i’ve even cooked hardboiled eggs in it along with the rice. Super handy and cooks brown rice in about 30 minutes instead of the usual 45 to 60 minutes and it comes out nearly perfect every time.

Easy-to-open hinged cover features a carrying handle and removable steam vent; removable nonstick pot for easy serving and cleaning

Great product, easy to cook and convenient for steam cooking too.

This steamer is awesome, use it 2-3 a week. Made steamed chicken and broccoli while rice was cooking on the bottom. Only thing i made seperate was the garlic sauce. Family dinner completed in under 45 minutes. Steamer tray and spatula included. Just as good as an aroma brand at 1/4 the price.

This is the easiest appliance that we have ever used. My wife and i absolutely love it, and expect it to improve our diet immensely. Instructions are clear, and we are eating stir-fried veggies 3 times a week, with perfect rice, of course. (you can steam the veggies, as well).

Hasn’t let me down yet and works great.

We use this cooker for a wide variety of rices and purposes and grain cooking, including quinoa. It’s good for use with asian and mexican foods. It makes it easier to have this part of the meal ready and hot while the rest of the food is prepared and cooked. It is one less item to sit on the stove and is small enough to take up a very little space on the counter.

I absolutely love this rice cooker, very easy to use and clean, works well and finishes the rice quickly.

Handy steaming basket lets you conveniently steam vegetables and cook rice at the same time

Received in good condition, nice steamer basket and does a great job cooking rice.

We have had many cookers and this one has been by far my favorite. Perfect asian style rice everytime.

KRUPS RK7011 4-in-1 Rice Cooker and Steamer – So far so good. Has worked with cooking rice and steaming vegetables only issue is it takes along time to steam vegetables

I thought paying more money for this it would last longer but after 5 months it stopped working. It only works off and on so was very disappointed in it.

Ha, it is super easy to use and clean. I used the recipe in the book to make the steel cut oatmeal with almond milk. I make rice in it probably 5 days a week. Easy to steam veggies while cooking the rice.

This is the second one i purchase, the first i gave as a gift to my mother and once i saw how convenient it was i had to buy one for myself.

This is an excellent rice cooker. It is extremely easy to use, and the rice cooks perfectly practically every time. Even my wife (who tends to burn foods. Please don’t tell her) can’t mess it up.Plus it keeps the rice warm. This appliance is also very easy to clean and maintain.

I have been using this particular rice cooker for about a month. I cook everyday and i am demanding of the appliances i give my valuable counter space to. This will have a place on my counter for years to come. I’ve used the rice cooker to make barley and was very pleased with the outcome. I like it because i can set it up and i don’t have to watch over it. I steamed some green beans in the steamer and was very pleased with the outcome. I will be using this feature quite a bit. I used the slow cooker to do some pulled chicken and of course it came out perfectly. This never took the cooker to the boil stage and hence my chicken was tender. I would recommend this unit for anyone that cooks.

This is one of my favorite appliances because when i come home from work i can stick a whole or large portion of a meal in it and then go off and do something else, walk the dogs, do some laundry, sew, whatever. I know among foodies there is a great debate over whether this appliance is necessary if you have a pressure cooker. Well it is for the set it and forget it factor alone. I graduated to higher end models when i going through cheap models about one per year. Since then i’ve had a vitaclay which i loved but when the clay insert’s lid broke i was unable to procure another from the company. Then i went to a panasonic and the latch on the lid broke 15 days after the 1 year warranty was up. And do you think amazon would relent?. No and it would cost as much as a new unit to ship it to a sanctioned panasonic repair facility as it would to buy a new one, then i bought a breville which is a lovely well made unit and make lovely risotto and slow cooks but makes lousy rice and doesn’t seem to do fast method of steel cut oats or grits. The breville recipe/instruction book is atrocious. I really hope this is a keeper, i went with krups this time because all of the krups brand appliances that i own are old and have lasted and i can’t stand replacing appliances that should last decades. They’re sustainable goods companiesanyway this one seems well made and i’ve made grits, rice, steel cut oats and quinoa, all were great. It’s easy to clean, wipe the inner lid after you’re done cooking. It doesn’t have a time delay but if it lasts i’ll be okay without that.

  • Disappointed
  • A Must Have Small Kitchen Appliance – Perfect Rice Every Time
  • Love this steamer!

This is a great rice cooker. I used all the four options and everything works great. I bought it from brandsmart usa for cheaper than amazon. L love it, love it and love it. It is the best rice cooker l have ever had. Thanks krups, u all did a good job making this piece of equipment.

Great rice, have not used it for anything else yet.

My friend recommended me this one so i ordered it almost blindly. After 2 minutes working, timer broke up. The cooker was still working but i couldn’t tell how much time was left, there were just zeroes. Also, in the beginning it didn’t let me change the time to my taste, it just weighs what’s inside, then you choose the mode (mine was ‘rice’) and that’s it. Because it was a lot of rice, the machine chose 1 hour. It was too much, the rice was soft-slimy-porridge like. I would like to hear the suggestion but be able to make corrections if needed. When i washed it, part of the finish came off (and i was washing it with soft sponge). So, i had to return it because of the timer but i didn’t order another one because of those flaws i learned while it was here. I hear people exclaim all the time how yummy the rice comes out of the rice cooker, comparing to regular pot, but i wasn’t impressed at all.

Rice comes out perfect every time.

This item is what i ordered and i am a very satisfied customer.

The rice cooker works great, timed and everything. The steamer and slow cooker are also gems, just wish there were a delay feature, but it does keep warm after done cooking.

This is a replacement for the same model i’ve had for over 6 years. I use this nearly every day for either rice or overnight slow cooking. It is the most used applicance in my kitchen. I bought another one as my original was ruined due to the housekeepers scrubbing the inside pan with a scouring pad, removing all the non-stick coating. Make sure you clean with a soft cloth only.

I bought this rice cooker after we returned from an extended stay in japan. I thought it would be able to cook rice as well as a japanese rice cooker, but it isn’t perfect. I always have to put lots more water than the chart recommends or else the rice is too dry. I tried brown rice once and i also used the chart recommendations but i had to add 2 cups more water and turn the rice back on for it to cook it fully. Also, i like cooking a lot of rice to have for the following day but the warm function dries out the rice on the bottom of the container. I steamed some carrots while i was cooking rice but the time was not long enough to make the carrots tender. I think this is a sturdy unit and my friend has had one for over 10 years. So, i guess i just need to play with the water levels and steamer timer to get the food to our liking.

This is our second krups rice cooker. The first one lasted over 5 years. This rice cooker matches all of our stainless steel appliance in the kitchen. We always get compliment from our guest. We did our research and this is the best looking rice cooker in stainless steel in the market.

This was a christmas gift, perfect.

We have 4 kids and try to make morning breakfast as easy as possible. The oatmeal setting is awesome. We don’t have to microwave 4 bowls and take up 10 minutes. Just put in the oatmeal, the water, close it and turn on the oatmeal feature. 5-7 min later we have oatmeal ready to go. We have used the rice cooker portion for rice and quinoa. I’ve never owned one before but am glad we have it now. Way easier, and easy to clean too.

4 cooking modes: rice, steaming, slow cook, and oatmeal

Bought this for my brother for christmas when he asked for a rice cooker. Fast shipping and good product.

Has worked with cooking rice and steaming vegetables. Only issue is it takes a long time to steam vegetables. Found that if i started the steamer at 15 minutes, waited till i saw steamer to put the vegetables in and restarted the steamer, it worked great. Have not tried to slow cooker part.

This krups 4-in-1 cooker is one small kitchen appliance i could never be without. A true workhorse in my kitchen all year round. I use it so much that i have 2, the oldest is around 15 years old and works as well as it did on day 1i most often use the rice and slow cook functions. Using the rice cooking function, my brown basmati rice turns out perfect every time. Rinse the rice first, then cook according to the cooker’s rice instructions. I add a bit of olive oil and dried herbs, no salt. Perfecti have found that the slow cook function is generally equivalent to the high setting on a crock pot slow cooker. My slow cooked roasts, chicken, turkey pieces, stews, meatballs, and vegetables turn out beautifully.

It is a great multifunctional tool. It is large, so not easy for small portions or single servings.

I found this in a thrift store for $10; i was, and still am, incredulous. The first thing i did was try every mode. First i cooked rice, of course; perfect. Next day we slow-cooked a piece of local pork belly for 6 hours. Just before serving we crisped both sides. For dessert, i used the steam function to make a strawberry/rhubarb custard; the steam rack held 4 custard cups. They came out okay; the recipe was bad, but the steamer worked great. Next day, i did two frittatas, one savory and one sweet, using the rice mode. The savory one had 7 duck eggs plus vegetables, and the sweet one was hen’s eggs and frozen fruit.

After using this appliance for twelve years, it finally quit cooking the rice completely without running it through two to three cycles. There’s no question that i’m replacing it with exactly the same thing.

Large 10-cup capacity nonstick and dishwasher-safe bowl for easy cleaning

I had an older version of this item and i replaced it with a newer one. I loved it so much i bought it twice. It is a quality product that lasts for 10 years or more. Very easy to use although it only has a low heat setting. I use it for rice, slow cooking and oatmeal. I have never had any trouble with it whatsoever and really love the item i have several other slow cookers and this is my all-time favorite.

I use it primarily for oatmeal and brown rice. The oatmeal setting cooks ok,but in order to prevent boil overs i have to start with less water and add more as it goes along. I sometimes leave the lid loose and that helps some. Brown rice cooking following the instructions also leads to boil overs. The rice comes out drier than i would like and so end up adding more water and continue cooking. I have not tried it for other uses yet. It is useful and would give it a higher rating if it didn’t boil over so easily. The unit is attractive and seems to be well made. If anyone has suggestions for solving this problem i would like to hear about it.

I had owned a krups rice cooker and after 12 years it was not working well. I decided to replace it with something different. I tried aroma and unfortunately had to return it because, my rice didn’t come out well, it was too dry no matter how much water i added, the taste was different and so i returned it. I saw this krups on clearance at bed bath and beyond and got an extra 20% off. I fell in love with this product again. If rice is a staple food in your home like mine this is the right rice cooker to go. I don’t like my rice too dry and too moist. The krups ricer does a perfect job.

I have had this product for 8 years and it is still going strong. Nothing is broken and all the buttons still work. We all love this rice cooker. I pretty much use the rice cooker and slow cooker function at least once a week, but there have been times where i have used it a number to times in one week. I have yet to have bad rice or a bad slow cooked meal. I have cooked brown, white, jasmine and basmati rice with my krups a number of times. My only suggestion is before the water boils down to stir the rice once. This will prevent any rice from getting a little hard on the bottom. You do not have to do this as the rice comes out just fine either way.

SANYO EC-503 3-Cup : Excellent for Singles or Couples

This cooker is great, especially for how affordable it was and the size. The only issue is that it spits water out of the steam hole, which makes a bit of a mess. I put a washcloth around the hole to keep it from making a mess. Other than that, its a great rice cooker.

I read the reviews on a couple of different rice cookers, and settled on this one. The one issue people seem to have with rice cookers like this is finding a hardened, overcooked layer on the bottom of the cooking bowl. I found that you can avoid this by skipping the “keep warm” step. In other words, if you want to avoid being wasteful, only cook what you mean to use immediately. Though the undesireable layer is minimal and does not bother me. Cleans easily, though dried essence of rice that boils onto the outer rim of the lid requires a bit of work. Overall, i am very happy with it, as it makes it very easy for me to include some starch staple to my diet with the push of a button and no standing around watching it.

Really good product for the price. It cooks rice to perfection, however because there is only a cook and warm feature, you have to watch the rice and make sure to unplug the cooker once the rice is done otherwise it’ll start to stick and burn. Very pleased, makes great appliance for college dorming.

This rice cooker is perfect for someone looking to make rice for one or two people. I use it to cook rice for myself and it makes more than enough rice for two or three meals if i cook the maximum amount. I’ve never burned my rice or had any issues with the cooker. I don’t know why you would spend a ton of money on a super fancy rice cooker when this one does the job just fine. This is a great basic rice cooker and unless you have a large family it should work well.

  • A great little rice cooker!
  • Great buy!

I want to give it four stars, but lately the power cord has been giving us grief. A perfect size for two people, i like that it takes up little space. I have been looking to replace the power cord, but i cannot find how. If anyone out there knows where i can purchase another i would much appreciate it. I hate to throw away an otherwise perfectly working machine just because the wire is compromised.

I bought this rice cooker for my son who is a college student. He can make his rice, vegetables, and meat at one time, and it cooks the rice perfectly. It is compact for someone who doesn’t have a lot of counter space.

Reasonably priced and totally gets the job done and then some. It’s great if you’re cooking for one or a whole crowd. I feel smart for purchasing it:-).

Better than my old sanyo rice cooker.

Honestly, i haven’t tasted rice this good anywhere on the planet. And what it does to sweet potatoes you wouldn’t believe. There’s only two of us, so i got the small, 3-cup cooker. I can only add 2 cups of liquid, so i can’t make what would be 3 cups of rice, or it will boil over. Get one with more capacity, unless you live alone.

I just love this little rice cooker. It makes perfect rice with no fuss. And, it comes with a veggie steamer and a perfect special spoon to boot. It is definitely a great buy.

I’ve used a large rice cooker for years and had been looking for a really good small one. This item fits the bill — excellent for cooking for one or two people. Instructions are easy to follow, the teflon pot is easy to clean and the plastic “paddle” makes it easy to take stuff out of the pot without scratching the teflon surface.

I have not been disappointed with this small rice cooker, which is perfect for my husband and i. We have a bigger rice cooker (10 cups) for larger crowds but it just was too big for our weekly use. Since we have had rice cookers before, we are aware that the inside pot doesn’t “fit” into the rice cooker – it “floats”. That’s normalanyway, the product is excellent. Try it – you’ll like itps: by the way, amazon is a great way to buy online.

This rice cooker is very basic. It only has two states when plugged in: warm or cook. The rice comes out very nice and doesn’t stick very much to the bottom. After 2 1/2 years of almost daily use, it’s still working fine.

The cooker is messy and spurts out water. Have to add two thirds at the start and a third at the end to get the rice cooked right.

Okay so i just got the rice cooker this week and made one batch of brown basmati rice for dinner, but it was so easy and such a success the best rice ever. I had to post review- i like it and it continues to perform like it did today i will love it. I used to make terrible rice, i admit it and considering i’m a former line cook it was rare that something so simple of a staple- rice could steer me into buying takeout. This with a few tips off internet boards on how best to cook basmati rice salt oil rinse three times etc. Made my first successful batch of rice ever. It was perfectly done didnt stick and was tasty- very pleased with the reviews that steered me to purchase this little sanyo cooker. Its a perfect size for me, with some leftovers. Now i can plan all sorts of dinners.

This is a small enough rice cooker to keep on my kitchen counter, something i wanted since i use it several times a week. However, it is important to realize that it is a 3-cup cooker, which translates to 18 ounces or just over 2 cups in the american system. It is great for just me and the kids or one other adult but you just can’t make a lot of rice with it. It’s perfect for us because it makes just the right amount for a side dish and we don’t have any waste. The reviewers who say it boils over are trying to cook too much rice. If you are cooking for more than 2 people or eat large quantities, you need a bigger cooker. Also, understand that the warming function just acts as a hot plate; it isn’t a steam warmer, so if you let it sit on warm for too long, it will get too dry. This is not like one of those big steamers that you cook a bunch of rice in and then keep warm for hours as people ladle it onto their plates. Nope, you cook it, you eat it, you wash the bowl.

The only complaint i have on this rice cooker is that there is no off button. When it is done cooking, it switches over the warm & will stay there until you unplug the cooker. I wish it went directly to off or had the option for warm or off.

Great size for a couple (2 people. Maybe for a third dinner guest)but- the non-stick lining has failed-my basmati rice sticks all the time-and worst yet- it (the non-stick-coating) probablyhas ‘come-off’ into my digestive systemyikesand- try and find a replacement insert?impossible to find.

I’m not a fancy user and i don’t need complicated setting. I rinse my rice, put it in the cooker and click a button and i expect it to be done in a timely fashion. For those of you who like simple set up, you can’t go wrong with this rice cooker. It’s so easy to clean as well. If you want a rice cooker that has time setting, then this is not for you. The only thing is i wish i got a 5 cup one. Even though i only cook for myself i like to cook a lot of rice in advance. And if your rice is high gluten, it will bubble up, so make sure you rinse as much as possible.

The price is attractive, 1 cup is just nice for 2 persons. However i am disappointed that it creates a harden layer of rice at the base which i have seen only in very old model rice cookers. The steam also creates a mess on the cover and even the cooker.

Does anyone have the instructions for this rice cooker?. Our manual got misplaced and we have yet to use the rice cooker. Please post the instructions, and we will really appreciate it, thankyou.

Actually, this was a gift to someone. So far, the product is easy to use and makes great food. The service from the distributor was excellent.

VitaClay VF7900-3 Chef Gourmet 6-Cup Rice and Slow Cooker Pro – So far so good

The cook book is written for the larger model so you will need to cut all the recipes in half. Other than that the product is wonderful.

Its the single most helpful item i have ever bought, to help me stay on a healthy diet, and not depend on fastfood.

I love brown rice and it has consistently been cooked to perfection in this slow cooker. There is no leakage of ‘rice scum’ and the pot is made out of clay not aluminum. Everything i have tried in this cooker has come out yummy. I would definitely buy this again.

I have looked for a rice cooker that is made of clay and doesn’t have any coating on. I also would like having a rice cooker could do more jobs rather than just cooking regular rice. This is the exact one i found. I use it almost every day for regular rice, brow rice, yam, sweet rice, steam vegetables, stew, herbal soup, bean soup, etc. It is fast and keeps warm for several hours, with a timer to remind you.

We’ve been trying to minimize the chemicals in our family’s diet, but for a long time we just ignored the rice cooker (which we use almost daily due to my daughter’s wheat/gluten intolerance) as there didn’t seem to be any alternatives to the teflon-style non-stick coating. So we were very excited when we read about this product. I was nervous at first about the shine and smell of the clay pot (that it might not be as non-toxic 100% clay as they claim). I both spoke and emailed with the manufacturer/owner/creator, but due to language issues i didn’t get a clear answer. Luckily i live near a ceramics supply store, so i took it down to get their opinion. They confirmed that the shinny clay was not glazed (i. That might have chemicals), but had a ‘slip treatment’ (i. Basically clay in lots of water put on like a glaze) and then probably buffed out for shine.

My husband and i have loved this rice cooker from the moment we made our first batch of rice. We purchased it because we avoid nonstick coatings as much as possible, and we try to go ‘natural’ when we can. I searched high and low for a cooker without a nonstick pot, and imagine my surprise when i found one at my favorite marketplace — amazon. Comit makes excellent white rice (we use the japanese kind), and cleanup is a breeze. I haven’t tried the slow cooker cycle yet, but i’ve made brown rice with good results. Once, i cooked a packaged medley mix that contained brown rice, wild rice, barley and some other things, and the kernels were a little too firm inside when i served it. However, i discovered later that the portion i had left in the pot had softened to just the right texture. I think in the future i’ll let some ‘harder’ things sit on the warming cycle for a while instead of serving immediately. I guess even a great cooker like this one can’t be expected to know how to time every crazy combination.

  • Good rice cooker without chemical “non-stick” coating
  • So far so good
  • Great Rice Cooker

The listing makes you think you are getting the whole unit. I only received the clay pot. Which in the end is fine because i just needed to replace the lid that broke. To buy directly from vitaclay for one lid costs more because of shipping. I was hoping this was the whole unit at an awesome discount but it was not. Satisfied but still a little disappointed.

So far this is a great rice cooker. We get excellent rice out of it. We cook mostly brown rice with other beans mixed in and it does a great job with nothing stuck to the pot. We have also cooked white and other types of rice and they all come out fine. We haven’t broken the pot yet either. The clay pot is a nice change from all the non-stick pots. The one problem we found is that if you use the recommended amount of water for brown rice, there is too much water left at the end of the cycle. You have to leave it on warm for 30 min – 1 hour before you can server the rice. Edit – a year laterwell, the cooker lasted about a year or so. It started showing an error code after a few months but you could still get it to cook rice.

I ordered this rice cooker because of the clay cooking pot. I don’t like the aluminum pots most rice cookers have because the rice burns and sticks to the bottom and i’m not comfortable with cooking in aluminum for health reasons. The vita clay addresses these issues plus i liked the ability to use a preset timer. The first cooker i got worked for a couple of months then started giving errors and stopped cooking. I sent it back and it came repaired for awhile but broke down again. The second time i contacted vita clay they said they would send out a new model at no charge. I’ve been using it and love the way it cooks. Pesky problems like too loud a buzzer and clock that didn’t keep time well with the first one have been fixed. I use the cooker daily to make steel cut oats and it’s the bomb for that. If you want a great rice/oat cooker i’d recommend this one.

We are a house full of asian.

This is a fantastic cooker (so far). It does everything well from brown/white/mochi rice to soup/slow-cooking stew. The clay pot is adorable and extremely easy to clean despite not having a non-stick coating. I’ve been using it almost daily for the past 3 months since getting it on sale at my local k-mart. After the first few uses, i was so happy with the results that i went back and bought another one just in case. . Yes, indeed the clay pot can be fragile and some extra care must be given to cleaning & handling but that’s minor inconvenience compared to the healthy aspects the vitaclay cooker offers. Besides some glass/corningware products (which don’t come in sophisticated computerized versions), there are no other automatic rice cookers out there without aluminum pots inside. Also, i’ve been using the japanese clay donabe pots for several years now and never had a problem with them, not even a crack, so here’s to hoping the same with the vitaclay for many more years to come.

I have owned many rice cookers(living in hawaii we eat lots of rice) and everything now days has non-stick on it, and after a while of use it starts to peel off and get into food. So after lots of searching i found this, and it works great. The rice comes out smelling more like rice then like the metal pot cooked in. (only problem is the clay pot is very fragile so be careful).

I borrowed a friend’s vitaclay rice cooker and really liked it. I had been planning to buy a rice cooker with a stainless steel liner but after using this one with the ceramic liner and seeing how easy it cleans up and stores left overs i decided to get my own. I bought the slow/rice cooker and i’m very pleased with it. My only slight regret is that i didn’t get the larger size because i do entertain often but this one is great for two to four people and for everyday use.

Aroma ARC-988SB Rice Cooker : The best.

More choice and easy to use.

I got it at walmart for $45. I’m a 25 year old dad that works 55 hour weeks and this thing is awesome. My wife and i work opposite shifts so she doesn’t have time to cook so as soon as i get home i’m right on it. Rather than dirtying pans, pots and a dragging out the grill this thing makes it real easy. Throw your fish, rice, and fresh veggies in there and it all turns out perfect, i mean the absolute best rice and veggies. I also made a seafood steam in it. Shrimp, clams, chopped lobster tail, oysters and a few other things and it turned out super good. Also when i do grill i just throw my rice and veggies in there, let it cook and don’t have to run back and forth makin sure all is well in the kitchen while i’m outside grilling. When it’s done steaming it goes to auto keep warm so when the grilled food is done the rice and veggies are hot n ready when i come inside.

I got my rice cooker for the holidays to replace our old (also aroma brand) rice cooker of 7 years. We use our rice cooker at least 5 days per week and it works great. The only reason we had to stop using the old cooker was the removable inner pan got cracked and rusted with so much use. We probably could have found a replacement pan and kept using the old one, but this one has many more features than our original. Our rice cooker is the most used appliance in the kitchen aside from our coffee maker.

These are great but if you do not have one yet and have the room i recommend buying the larger sized aroma first and getting this as a secondary one so you can have more different things in each one. For example vegetarian hot dogs in one steam tray and steam the buns in another steam tray. Have vegetarian chili in the bottom of each aroma. Save any leftover chili for later. I got a larger one from costco and have been using it a few years. I kept maxing it out and finally got a second one, this, 16 cup one. I also bought one and sent it to someone who needed one, a small one like this since they would not want the huge one. My bigger one does not have a cake button or soup button like this one does. I have already used the cake button to cook garlic bread. Just butter some fresh bread, add garlic, spices and parmesan cheese and stack the bread in the aroma.

The best purchase i love it saving u a lot of time and giving u healthy food love it love it.

I have used this product for three weeks straight. I purchased this so i could mainly steam veggies and it actually makes them taste better than any other method. Also it makes the natural flavors come out i found it all to be sweeter. It has made my husband and i fall in love with sweet potatoes as well. I have used the soup function and i find it works best for soups with a thinner consistency. It makes soup on 30 minutes. I have used the slow cooker and while i find it would be great for slow cooking i still prefer my original slow cooker, i think my crockpot slow cooker, cooks it better when needed to be creamy and rich. I should also say it could just be the operator (myself) when i do not get the consistency correct. You or your family will eat healthier with this prodcut.

We received the rice cooker today and already used it for dinner tonight. The best sticky rice since the last hibachi japanese grill we went to.

Makes brown and white rice to perfection.

Nice product but i couldn’t give it more than 3 stars because when i turn on delay timer it gives out a continuous beeeeeeep, which is so annoying that i would never actually be able to use the delay cook feature.

Aroma has the best rice cookers. We haven’t used the slow cooker function yet because we haven’t needed to. It did fall off the fridge and it made it through the fall and works like it did when new.

This’s an amazing tool in our kitchen because it has several cooking modes, sush cooking dif. Types of rice, as well as crock pot meals, stems foods like veg.

It has some real cool new features. Slow cook soups, sear then cook, even bake cake. Looks very sleek but i noticed the steam insert is a cheaper plastic, flimsy and the water drain as well. I guess it will not effect the performance but i am hoping nothing mechanical was done cheaply.

My friend had this model for a year and he liked it so i got it too, i only use it to cook rice, it does a really good job, so convenient, very good price. Also with the saute functionality you can make tahdig https://en. Org/wiki/tahdigvery delicious crunchy rice, put it saute mode for 15 to 20 minutes after the rice is cooked and the magic happens :)thank you aroma for this great product.

Pars Automatic Rice Cooker : i went online and found recommended instructions from others

It is not as large as i expected. Overall, i am very happy with this rice maker. It makes great tahdig but it takes a very long time >45 min. Once the cooking process is over, the machine will stay on and will keep the food warm and the tahdig crispy unless you remember to turn if off. If you forget to actually switch it to off, the tahdig can become very thick and crunchy and almost too hard to eat. Overall, i’m very happy with my purchase.

Only problem is coating of the pan with teflon which is reported to be not good for helth.

PARS Automatic Rice Cooker for Persian Rice – Specialty Rice Cooker – 5 Cup

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 5 CUP PARS PERSIAN RICE COOKER: 1.5 servings per cup. Smaller footprint consumes less counter space.
  • AUTOMATIC SHUT OFF and KEEP WARM function.
  • REMOVABLE TEFLON NON-STICK POT with precise measuring lines. Includes measuring cup and rice scoop.
  • CUSTOM TIMER for crispy stuck-pot Persian rice. Quickly dial in the timer for classic tahdig.
  • REMOVABLE CORD for storage when not in use. Works with US electric system (110V) standard.

Everything to love about this rice maker. Wash your rice; add water, salt and oil; turn it on and in less than an hour a perfect pot of rice with the best crisp all around.

I was excited about purchasing the pars persian rice cooker but when i used it for the first time i realized that the rice to water ratio from the directions that came with the cooker were not correct, the rice was dry and hard. I played with the water ratio and the rice came out much better. You will need to add more water then the directions say.

If you enjoy the crispy ‘bottom of the pot,’ or ‘tah deeg,’ that is so characteristic of many persian rice preparations, but are frustrated by the inconsistent results (not crispy enough one time, charcoal the next) achieved by making it ‘manually,’ then this rice cooker is for you. You may want to consult the internet and watch some helpful youtube videos to learn all the tips and tricks (most importantly, that the amounts of oil suggested in the manual are somewhat excessive), but ultimately, the pars is easy to use right out of the box. Be sure to use only the highest quality basmati, and you can enjoy a thick crust of golden tah deeg every single time.

The instructions are nonsense. I went online and found recommended instructions from others. Also tried different settings myself. It produces nice rice and tahdig. Not as good as made the old fashioned way in a pot with a towel wrapped around the lid, but it’s a great way to make quick full proof persian rice with tahdig, especially for inexperienced rice cookers.

I’m half persian and have a love for tahdig. I’ve never made persian rice or tahdig before, so i bought this rice cooker and on my first try it came out perfect. There is no need to soak the rice overnight with this cooker. I rinsed 3 cups of rice (using the measuring cup provided) until the water was clear and mixed the drained rice with 6 tbsp of canola oil. Next i put the rice in the pan and added 3 1/2 cups of water and a little salt. I wrapped the lid in a tea towel, plugged the cooker in and turned it to 50 minutes and it came out great.

Very happy with my new rice cooker. The instructions that come with it are a little sketchy but through trial & error i think i’ve got it. 2 t olive oil ~32 oz chicken broth ~ turn your timer to 60 minutes. When that boils add 3 cups (measuring cup included w/ cooker) of rinsed & drained basmati rice & wait for the timer to go off & enjoy perfect rice.

I am an expert in cooking rice but when i have people to entertain, i don’t have time to check on my rice. So i used this twice during the holidays and in both times, the rice came out exactly as i wanted it to be. Very easy to use with great results.

I get lovely persian rice and if i put it on for an additional 10 minutes after it’s done, i get perfect tadig. I just really wish i bought the smaller one. You need to make at minimum 5 cups of rice at a time. That’s a lot for just a family of 3 lol.

Love the crispy rice that it produces. I have placed an order for 4-cup version first but it was too small and can only cook 3-cup of royal basmati rice perfectly and 3. I did return the 4-cup one and ordered a 7-cup version.

This one works much better than the other brand i sent back. I think these persian cookers are overpriced for what you are getting, but since there is a limited product selection, they can do this. I think it might help to wash the inner pot gently with mild soap and not put it in the dishwasher. I also spray the bottom and sides with pam, so nothing sticks and cleaning is easy.

I live it so much i use this brand for long time but i’m little disappointed because after using a few time inside it start pilling off.

It makes the ‘tahdig’ perfectly. Have been using it couple of times a week since i got it. I bought the one that says ’10-cup’. Be aware: it doesn’t mean you can cook 10 cups of raw rice in it. You can cook about 4-5 of the measuring cups that comes with the product. It makes enough rice to feed 4-5 people, not much more.

Gives best result i wish i would have bought smaller one didn’t know you have to use at least 3 full cup to have this size i was thinking i can use it for any amount up to.

– it cooks up to 3 cups- makes nice ‘tahdig’ iranian style- should be careful with setting the timer, otherwise it can burn the rice.

Makes crispy rice, persians favorite (tahdig).

I bought this rice cooker 1 year ago, and have been using it every day. After one year, its performance has not changed at all. I cannot help mentioning that the quality of produced tahdig (crispy layer of the rice which exclusively belongs to persian-style rice cooking) is still excellent. I do recommend this rice cooker to all who like to cook rice with persian style and particularly to tahdig-lovers.

Does a good job of making persian style crusty rice, pretty easy. The directions that come with the unit are virtually worthless, clearly a very bad translation from farsi and so you are pretty much guessing at how to use it. But, you experiment and figure it out.

I have used it twice and it works. I wish that it had a recipe booklet though. But it’s really good and makes the crusty bottom.

Thrilled to finally make perfect tahdig after years of trying. Please know the timer is pretty fast and does not match minutes but the tahdig color scale on the dial that you turn the pot on with is perfect for tone of tahdig doneness. Also i got a 10 cup and would not recommend smaller.I make 2 american size cups of boiled rice piled in the par for tahdig and it is perfect.

Unknown Wolfgang Puck Portable 1, perfect for 1-3 servings of rice

First of all, left me say that my husband and i are in the process of demolishing (and remodeling) our early ’60’s kitchen. I had no idea what a godsend this little rice-cooker that could would be. We have been in our old house, new home for 6 months and it has been like living on a construction site almost from day one. I scoffed arrogantly at the thought of anyone needing a rice cooker. (my deepest apoligies to all rice cooker rice makers. ) i am 66 years old and have always made rice effortlessly since i was twelve until we moved here. Here, neither cooktop, nor oven, nor microwave, nor slow cooker seemed to be able to produce a decent product. In desperation, i swallowed my pride and bought this wolfgang puck little wonder and was immediately rewarded with perfect rice of all kinds. White rice of course, wild rice indeed, basmati rice (are you kidding me) and magnificent brown. But with no kitchen i expanded my repertoire to include oatmeal, pasta, potatoes, warmed up leftovers and desert. And it takes up hardly any room and it’s easy to clean up. I will say that there are only two of us, but i certainly could use this for four. After that i’m pretty sure a larger rice cooker would be better. Still this little baby gets five plus stars from me for its consistency, versatility and ease of use.

This works fine for what it is. I really like the way it cooks pasta dishes and rice dishes. I have a book of recipes and the ones that indicate that you have to hit the cook button a second and third time – well, i stay away from those recipes. I feel the frustration of other reviewers who say that it’s a pain to have to babysit this and keep hitting ‘cook’. After all, the reason i got this was so i could just plug it in and leave it while i do other things. I found that most things cook in about 20-25 minutes. I’ve made chicken dishes using chicken tenders and the inside gets hot enough that the chicken tenders actually brown up (i cut up the tenders into pieces before placing them in the cooker). I also found that you don’t need a heavy hand with spices. I made barbeque chicken tenders and the barbecue sauce tasted like it soaked into the chicken. To be honest, i had just a little trouble with rice the first time i made it but with just a little trial and error of wet to dry, the rice comes out fine. On tv they advertise that this cooks a mountain of food, but not really. I think there is enough for two regular size portions of food. So, if it’s you and your husband or child, it would serve that purpose well. The cookbook that i found that has a lot of good recipes for this particular cooker is ‘simply the best rice cooker recipes’ by marian getz.

Having a little problem with the rice maker, but shipping and receiving were great.

Comments from buyers

“We love it! Will recommend and would purchase again
, Replacing parts on my old one.
, perfect for 1-3 servings of rice

I tried this first for brown rice. I usually use a steamer for rice. But i got this specifically for the rv. I would recommend it for small portions. I then tried simply putting a few pieces of pork rib and some veggies with just enough water to cover. I don’t know how it knows when to stop cooking, but it seems to. There is one design improvement i would like to see wolfgang incorporate — and that would be a handle for the cover.

Although it is nice looking, it does not do a better job of cooking rice then my larger rice cooker. The rice does not cook faster, nor taste better. It is my guess the money for product development went into the design and not the functionality of this cooker. If i had it to do over, since i do not care how the cooker looks, i would buy a much less expensive cooker.

My problem was i read the directions. It states you can keep it on warm for up to 5 hours. Your rice will turn brown on the bottom and taste like plastic. I only left it on warm for an hour or so. The no stick was chipped so i guess that’s what the plastic taste was?. This was my first and only time to use this. Beside this problem, before it was left on warm the rice came out absolutely perfect. If you buy this just don’t use the warm option?.

We are very satisfied with this product. Just the right size for two people. Cooks well and easy to use and wash and maintain. I wish the inner cup is available separately for purchase,since the non stick coating is likely to wear out soon.

I bought this to replace a 20+ year olf rice cooler. This older machine worked well, but was too big for my spce requirments, and with the aluminum cooling surface there was a lot of waste; kernels stuck to the bottom of the pan. And cleanup required soaking. The wolfgang puck elimited allo my issues. It’s smaller, non-stick and clean up is timple. It’s a great little kitchen applicance.

Gifts that i was told they like.

Have this for a while and used it a few times to make oatmeal. Last night i took it out from storage and made about 1/2 cup of rice, it came out so great. The measurements on the inside of the container is for water, you need to use the added cup to measure the rice, or use a measuring cup. Updated, 10/11/2017 we been using it everyday, my mom loves white rice made in it. I put olive oil that i prepare with lemon peel and a garlic, after a few days that is so good on salads and the rice comes out so good, i also add some salt to the rice. You have to wash the rice a few times prior to cooking, also do not add to much water to avoid spills.

This is my favorite little rice cooker, does brown rice, it’s slightly less than 3 cups but the perfect quantity for one person to have for dinner and as leftovers, i’m very happy with the original machine, and this one looks identical. It’s more blue than in the photo, i wish it had been that turquoise blue but it’s more of a bright sky blue. Missing the measuring cup but i had the one from my old one so no harm.

Perfectly cooked rice for one or two. Will recommend and would purchase again. Im asian, we eat rice often, although trying to cut back. I’ve cooked rice for 40 years on the stove and in many cookers, this is just as good as any out there.

Wolfgand puck promotes this little cooker as a multi-cooker, so i’m going to offer this review accordingly. I don’t know if others have had the same problem as i have, but the liquid inside mine keeps repeatedly boiling away. I made the cuban style bean soup, page 21 of the included booklet, and i had to stir in more liquid four times, along with extending the cooking time with each addition. Because the liquid kept evaporating, the beans on the top half weren’t in liquid and never cooked well. Frankly it was annoying having to babysit it so often due to the evaporation rate, looking every 15-minutes to 1/2-hour. My spouse ate the ‘bean soup’ over rice as directed, but said the beans were still not cooked through completely. I already knew they could not be cooked evenly. With the required first cook for 1-hour on ‘warm cook’, and 4-additional cycles on ‘cook’ we are talking 5-hours. Plus that didn’t even include the white rice for the soup base. That required cooking in a totally different panso although the soup was very good i have to ask myself if i would have been better off just cooking the whole thing, including the rice, together in one large pot?.

It is perfect for preparing my fav rice, chicken and shrimp combo one dish meal.

Perfect for 1-3 servings of rice. Rice is cooked exactly like i like it. I have made cheese and macaroni also.

A friend recommended this rice cooker, i am happy i took her advice. There is a measuring cup for the rice and clear markings for water on the side of the cooker, so no need to figure out ratios. There is a timer that automatically switches the machine from ‘cook’ to ‘warm’ when it is ready. I used to envy people from cultures where how to cook rice is passed on through generations; i was raised in the suburbs on minute rice. Once i started to eat unprocessed foods, rice was my stumbling block, never turning out the same, now i don’t have to worry about how it will come out. I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars for the following reasons: the top gets very hot and i have to remember to use oven mitts to take it off. It is necessary to unplug the cooker to turn it completely off, otherwise it stays on warm. At first it was very hard for me to see the measurements on the side of the cup for measuring rice; i learned by experimenting. I wish there was a bell or buzzer that goes off when it is finished, so i don’t have to keep checking.

Works very well, a nice addition to the kitchen.

Hamilton Beach Proctor Silex 4-Cups uncooked resulting in 8-Cups Cooked Rice Cooker – Low cost, works as advertised

Not extra special but it serves the purpose. It also cooks my brown rice pretty good which i wanted.

It arrived on time, it was totally new, and it is a high quality rice cooker. I recommend this vendor for everyone.

I looked for the least expensive rice cooker and this was it, however, i didn’s have to give up anything as far as ease of use, etc. We own a second home in denver and bought one for up there, too. You just put in however many cups of rice you want and add the cups of water necessary which is slightly less than twice the number of rice cups, push down on the little lever and the cookers does the jobs all by itself and automatically switches to warm; how much more easy could it be?. Here are the specifications for the Hamilton Beach Proctor Silex 4-Cups uncooked resulting in 8-Cups Cooked Rice Cooker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Makes 8 cups of cooked rice/4 cups of uncooked rice
  • Nonstick removable bowl
  • Automatic keep warm
  • Dishwasher safe bowl & lid

I’ve had this rice cooker for over five years no issues. I bought it after i got tired of having burned rice at the bottom of the pot and having to scrape it off. This is a small rice cooker which is exactly why i bought it – i rarely fill it up all the way because i won’t eat that much rice in a week. It’s easy to clean and low maintenance. Automatic shut off once the rice is cooked. Couldn’t be happier with it.

It is not as big as a 10-cup cooker should be, but still big enough for 2 people.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Starter rice cooker
  • Rice Cooker
  • Gave it as a gift

I had my doubts about ordering this and figured that it would be broken quickly. I have used this several times it holds plenty of rice for a family of four. It cooks all types of rice well, and my only complaint is that the warm function burns rice quickly.

We had a smaller one we kind of used up and needed a new and bigger one so we purchased this locally. We cook basmati rice in ours.

Maybe it is just me, but i believed it can out 8 cups and it is actually can handle 4-5 cups. It is pretty small i was surprised. And i have 6 people in my house so this is def not enough. But if a small family with 2-3 people, this might just be good.

We weren’t sure if we wanted a rice cooker or not but after my cousin convincing me, i decided i’d start here. The price was cheap and reviews were mostly good and i thought it would be a good starter rather than spending big bucks on a cooker we didn’t use very often. That’s exactly what this is, a starter rice cooker. It works great, cooks faster than in the pan and i don’t have to monitor it. It clicks and stops cooking when done. The steam makes a bit of rice residue around the cooker on the counter but easy to clean up. We’ve now started using this more often since we’ve been making our dogs food and adding brown rice so once this guy goes, we’ll upgrade. But if you’re looking for a starter rice cooker, this is the one.No issues and we’ve used it about once a week for at least 3 months now.

I purchased this from bed bath & beyond for $15. That was easily the best $15 i’ve ever spent on an appliance. I use it solely for cooking natural long grain brown rice, and it has come out perfect every time. It has a non-stick finish so clean up is as easy as it gets. The lid and cooking pot are dish washer safe, but i think you’d have to be pretty lazy not to take a whole 15 seconds to run it under some water. The non-stick works that goodi usually cook about 1 cup of uncooked rice at a time. The instructions indicate about a 1-2 ratio of rice to water. I guess if you like your rice soggy, then use the 1-part rice to 2-part water method.

I like this rice cooker very much.

I purchased this rice cooker to give it as part of a christmas gift to a needy family here in hawaii. The church that i go to participates every christmas in giving gifts to families in need and i felt since most people here eat rice as a staple, some family could use it. I have one just like it and it works great.

Very simple everything i expected it to be.

We use it several times a week and always get perfect rice. I always keep extra cooked rice in the fridge for quick, healthy brown-bag lunches – just add vegies and sauce. I have only used brown rice with it – it is fast, easy, and fool-proof. This one was purchased as a gift because we love ours so much.

This rice cooker is half the size i expected. My last rice cooker was a ’10-cup’ capacity, and was twice this size. The difference is ‘cooked’ versus ‘uncooked’ – the last one was 10 cups uncooked capacity, and this one is 10 cups cooked (5 cups uncooked). Since i usually cook only 3 cups of rice at a time, this 5-cup unit works great for me. And takes up less room in the cupboard. Good quality and should be very durable.

We received this rice cooker as a wedding gift november 2009. It worked well for small batches for 2 people. We usually used about 1/2 to 1 cup of uncooked rice to yield about 1. No, this will not yield 10 cups of cooked rice. Attempts to yield 4 cups of rice could be messy and usually led to a spilled mess. Don’t get me started on the time i tried to use coconut milk to make coconut infused rice – i was scraping stuff residue off of everything for days. Once the rice is cooked, the rice cooker switches to a ‘warm’ mode. I would always try to hear for the click the machine made, because too long under ‘warm’ and you will get that weird film where the rice meets the nonstick bowl. The rice tastes the best before enduring much time under ‘warm’.

This little guy makes perfect rice. All you have to do is follow the directions. There seem to be some negative reviews about it being messy, but my guess is that those people didn’t read the directions.

Small and cute, works as expected.

This is the third rice cooker i bought. My last two were the same model :)the part that wears out is the rice bowl. The non-stick coating comes off in about 2 years. You can get the bowl for $11 or the whole thing for a little more. It cooks rice faster than most models and is not at all complicated. Good, reliable product that does what it is supposed to do. What more can you ask from an appliance?.

I’ve been using this rice cooker for over a year, 3-4 times a week. Tonight’s rice came out every bit as perfect as the batches made when i got it. It comes with its own scoop that you use to measure both rice and water, and a list of rice/water ratios for various types of rice. You add the rice, the water, and any flavorings you want, pop the lid on and click it over to cook, and leave it alone to do its thing. In about 30-45 minutes, depending on your type of rice, the cooker switches over to warm, and you have perfectly cooked rice. The capacity for this rice cooker is half of what it states on the box, but in all honesty, i bought it because of its compact size and price and hadn’t even noticed the ’10 cup’ capacity marked on the box until i read some of the reviews here when i came to buy another one for a gift. This cooker is perfectly sized for someone with a small kitchen or someone cooking for only 1 or 2 people. I get a generous portion of cooked rice, and some left over for lunch the next day. I love trying new rice varieties, mixing combinations of rices, quinoa, and lentils. This cooker will even cook broccoli florets while it cooks your rice.

This is not a fancy rice cooker. It is extremely basic in what it does – cooks rice. It doesn’t have fancy settings, there isn’t one thing fancy about this cooker. It doesn’t even have an on/off switch, which i do find to be irritating, but seriously what do you want for $25?.The good rice cookers cost hundreds of dollars, and while i love rice, i don’t have that kind of cash to spend on something that only cooks rice. This unit is fast, easy to clean because the basket lifts out and is dishwasher safe, and cooks basic rice very well. The only things i don’t like are the lack of the on/off switch, and it does not have an auto shut off. You wouldn’t want to put rice in to cook and leave the house, it would be a dried out mess by the time you got home because it automatically goes into ‘warm’ mode after cooking. And when you plug the unit in, it is turned on to ‘warm’ mode, so you have to be sure to remember to flip the switch to ‘cook’ after putting in the water and rice. I was using an old black and decker food steamer to make rice before, and this is by far better than that ever was.

Tiger Corporation JBA-A10U-WL 5 : BEST RICE COOKER EVER!

I’ve had one of these for about 5-6 years. Bought a second one for a friend as a christmas gift and just yesterday she told me it had “changed her life”. My son never liked brown rice. This makes fluffy brown rice with each grain separate and he now loves it. Mine may have finally malfunctioned today (after being used 2-5 times a week for 5+ years) so i came on to see what is currently available. Price has dropped since i bought mine. White rice consistently takes about 40 minutes. Brown rice approximately 60. Not sure what’s up with the 80 minutes for white rice for the other reviewer. If mine actually does prove to have an issue — i will buy another without hesitation.

Having taught a (non-credit) ebay class for years, i got in the habit of checking out thrift stores and the local (clean, well lit) franchise pawn shop when in town. I found this unit in an unopened box for $59. There are many who balk at that price, let alone the $100+ price. But to compare this to the typical $25 cheap rice cooker with the glass or aluminum lid is like comparing a mercedes to a yugo (remember those?). First, this has a microprocessor control for various kinds of rice. Second, it is a “closed system” that acts more like a pressure cooker. You may need to adjust the amount of water needed to cook your rice the way you like it. I cannot speak to the “slow cooker” feature, as i don’t slow cook. Based on other comments, it appears the japanese idea of slow cooking may not be the same all-day crock pot idea in the usa.

The only thing is that i bought this for someone i live with as christmas gift and it just arrived in the box of what its packaged in so they knew what it was.

  • There is a quick rice setting too if you need rice now and do not need it to be perfect but if you have the time it is worth
  • BEST RICE COOKER EVER!
  • So far so good!! after about a day the rice starts

This one its a great product.

My favorite brand of rice cooker. My last one lasted many years so i had to get a new one.

I had a tiger cooker before for many years. Then it takes twice the time to cook a mixed white and brown rice. So i bought this one to replace it. The time used to cook a same mixed white and brown rice takes about 80 minutes. It is still taking too long for my liking, but i will keep this one after read the reviews of many other brands. I use this cooker mainly for cooking rice, have not tried the steamer, or cook rice porridge yet.

After about a day the rice starts to dry out. Even with an extra cup of water. We have been using it for months without any real issues.

This is our second rice cooker. Decent price and functional proper for almost a year.

My old rice cooker is not as good anymore so i got this one. I am able to make perfect soft sticky rice with this cooker. I tried my old rice cooker and either the sticky rice is too soft and wet or uncooked a the bottom. You can also use to timer to make rice when you want it done which i love because i usually have to make them over night and by midday the rice is already been warm for 12 or more hours which is kind of old. I have always purchase a tiger brand rice cooker. I tried the american brand at target once and didn’t like that it doesn’t keep the rice warm.

I bought the rice cooker for my mother. She loves the 3 in 1 functions so much, which makes the cooking very enjoyable.

Best rice cooker and steamer for veggies, ever. I’m serious you do not need any other rice cooker aside from this one. I can not stress how easy and great tasting food this lil product makes. Yes it is a bit on the expensive side, but it does it’s job, fast and very well.

It cooks rice and it comes out well every time. There is a quick rice setting too if you need rice now and do not need it to be perfect but if you have the time it is worth it to use the regular setting.

The only thing, that i find needs to improve on is the nonstick coating on the rice pot, which, it starts to chip after onlycouple of times used.
