Tatung 6-Cup Multifunction Indirect Heat Rice Cooker Steamer and Warmer : Five Stars

It works well and does a nice job of steaming rice. It takes a bit to understand that the measuring cup that comes with the steamer is not equal to a standard cup. Your must use the cup that comes with the unit to get good results. Also it was disappointing to find, contrary to tatung advertising, that the warmer must be turned on by hand after the rice is finished steaming, therefor you cannot leave it unattended if you don’t want your rice to be cold when you return. It works much better than our former rice cooker that had no steaming and burned the rice at the bottom of the pan.

Alittle bit of a learning curve, but makes the best rice.

The rice stick to the pot if i leave it out for a while to cool down. Otherwise, it is good and serves the purpose.

This rice cooker is a very nice product. It performs just as i expect. I am very satisfied with this product.

I’ve had this rice cooker for a few months now. I make rice or quinoa in it about three times a month. I don’t need to make a lot of rice, so making one cup (included with cooker), comes out a little dry sometimes. I have to figure out how much water to put in to get it just right. On the whole i am satisfied with the cooker. Next time i’ll buy a much smaller appliance. Rice cooker that i loved until it broke. I gave this one four stars because i sometimes can’t get the consistency i want with such a small batch.

This cooker works great as advertised. It is a very convenient utensil as well. Rice, stews, buns can be made/steamed to fully cooked in 15 minutes.

This is my first adult rice cooker and boy, does this make the best rice ever. This does not even compare to your typical $20 rice cooker. This makes the fluffiest, most delicious rice. It tastes exactly like the rice that my chinese friends make.The annoying thing is that it comes with its own measuring cup which is not a standard size. I’ve lost it a couple of times and it’s hard to get the measurements just right. It can also get complicated because you have to put water inside with the rice and outside of the inner pot too. However, this is worth it for the quality of rice that you get. This comes with a helpful little insert to tell you not just how to make rice but also how to steam veggies and make soups. I haven’t tried it for that yet but i’d love to eventually.

I couldn’t be more pleased with this product. This is my second “tatung” rice cooker in thirty years so that has to say something. My first one still works but i am afraid it will fail one day so to be on the safe side, i purchased this one. We have used it several times now, and like the first, performs perfectly.You will not be sorry if you purchase this rice cooker and plan to have for many years. Cooks, white rice, brown rice, steams, so many things.

Makes perfect, burn-free rice and other grains. It takes a bit of practice to adjust the amount of water in the cooking and outer vessel if you’ve been using a direct heat cooker, but once you get that down it is an excellent cooker. (don’t put it under a cabinet while cooking – it produces a lot of steam – put it on a counter with plenty of room for the steam to rise.

My four star rating means “very good–recommended. ” i bought the tatung tac-06kn 6-cup rice cooker to replace a cooker that worked but i did not like the non-stick cooking vessel. I was not looking for, or knew of, the indirect cooking method but i prefer the results to direct cooking. I have cooked two batches of rice so far and i like the results. It is easy to use and to clean. The tatung literature says this model does not have an automatic warming cycle. However, when my tatung finishes cooking it automatically switches to warm–so. ? i am accustomed to the high quality of my all-clad cookware which is heavy, high quality stainless steel/aluminum or copper cores and permanently riveted stainless steel handles. In contrast, the tatung is made of much thinner gauge stainless steel and plastic handles attached with screws and that’s why i did not give it 5-stars. I recommend increasing the amount of cooking water slightly as compared to the tatung instructions if you like a moister, fluffier rice.

Tatung used to make good quality products, old rice cooker was made to last10-20 years, but this new rice cooker, is suppose to made with stainless material, but it still gets rusty in some area. I used for about a year, then it was not working. A friend of mine fixed it,the fuse inside cause the problem. This product is too expensive that should lastlong time rather than a year.

Tatung’s items are generally in good quality.

Cooks a perfect bowl of rice. Fluffy, steamed, soft, even. Not mushy on the bottom or dry on top. Stainless steel inner pot easy to clean and don’t have to worry about nonstick coating being scraped off. No spillage from the sides while cooking if instructions followed properly on how much water to place in outer pot. Its worth the investment if you eat rice frequently at home. Couldn’t be happier with this product.

I bought this old fashioned rice cooker because i could not find a stainless steel bowl replacement for my beloved zojirushi. The rice that i get out of the tatung is okay, though my mother turns her nose up at it. The keep warm feature is not good for using more than an hour or so– the rice completely dries out. Edited to reflect that i may not be using the keep warm correctly, as others seem to have good results. I’m using the cup included, not sure why the rice gets mushy on top but dried on the bottom when i use the keep warm feature.

This rice cooker works very well. We have owned numinous rice makers and this is by far the best. The rice never sticks and is always done to perfection.

I’m really surprised that rice doesn’t stick to the stainless steel bowl. Why were we using the unsafe teflon coated ones for so long when they are not safe?. It also comes with a small cover so you can put the bowl in the fridge with the left overs and it takes up very little space. Haven’t tried it for steaming yet, but so far rice is great.

I researched many rice cookers over a period of several months trying to replace a 15-yr old inexpensive, but reliable plastic cooker/steamer that had been a gift. This time, i wanted to avoid both plastics & non-stick materials. I also didn’t need or want to store a very large cooker since, it’s just the two of us @ home now. My decisions narrowed the field considerably. Excluding many big name brands like zojirushi, panasonic, and tiger. The buffalo brand rice cooker from malaysia projects a very modern design, great functionality & electronic features. However, the buffalo cooker’s hard-wired led battery has to be replaced by the manufacturer about every 3 years or so. All of the fuzzy logic cookers have similar battery replacement issues. The prospect of the future hassle & the cost of service & shipping each time the battery died was a major detraction for me. That’s when i hit upon the tatung tac-06kn in my search.

I bought this for my wife last christmas, 2014, and she loves it. I will probably purchase another for my daughter this christmas.

Great product, love that it’s 100% stainless steel.

No more aluminum or teflon added to the food.

Taiwanese people use this to make their rice.

Pros:rice comes out perfect once you know the proportionseasy to cleanas simple as possiblecons:the lid rattles loudlyit spews and spurts water on everything in the vicinitywhen the lid is modified and/or weighted to control the rattling, the water boils overcould be the perfect cooker if they figure out how to control the rattling/spewing. If you do buy it and figure out how to address this, please let me know.
