So far so good

  • Summary: Cheaper on mfg website. I paid 39.99 for this from aromas homepage. The rice cooker is really nice. I put in rice, and filled water up to the line, turned it on and walked away. At dinner time I had nice perfectly cooked rice. This is way better than using a pan on the stove.

Needs a cookbook or better instructions

  • Summary: I bought this as a steamer more than a rice cooker. It is probably wonderful for rice but I had to experiment to use it as a steamer and crockpot. It is light and has a convenient carrying handle and an area to catch moisture that drips when the lid is opened.

Extremely cheap plastic

j, Amazon

  • Summary: The shell of this rice cooker is extremely cheap, oddly lightweight plastic. Straight out of the box there are scuffs around the lock and there is a gap where the imperfectly molded grip was snapped into the handle. I had a much better rice cooker bought for $40 at a chinese grocery store that I left behind when I moved across the country. The plastic was sturdier and the machine felt like it there were some more solid metal components inside.

Great Little Helper

Kathleen M. Innaurato, Amazon

  • Summary: The machine makes the rice perfectly every time. It is fast and quiet.... In fact it was so quick and quiet that I thought there must be something wrong with the machine. The proof was in the product.... It was moist and not soggy. It was not sticky at all. AND the meals I made within that 5 minutes went over swell.

Mushy rice

S. Martone "Steven", Amazon
22 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this rice maker because it was an upgrade of a rice maker that a friend had in their house. This Aroma product doesn't compare. I follow the detailed easy directions by rinsing the rice prior to placing it in the cooker, place the correct amount of water based on the specified cups of rice and it always comes out overcooked and horrible. Do not buy this product.

Overall terrific product

M. Colon, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this rice cooker as a gift to my mother who absolutely loves it. Ever since purchasing it, she no longer makes rice on the stove except for rare special ocassions - it's that good! My only draw back about this model is that it doesn't have an off button so you have to unplug it to shut it off.

Bought to replace my old rice cooker

S Thy, Amazon

  • Summary: It is ok, but not that good. It does not cook that good. This rice cooker will leave almost uncook rice at the top portion and wetty at the bottom. I did not like it. I would not buy this again. Not recomend.

enclosed measuring cup needs to be larger . . .

hhjtheSAGG "hhj", Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: i purchased this based on the reviews of others, and also i fell in love with it, for i find it a task to try to make decent brown rick on the stove. Mines tends to look like oatmeal. So i felt that a rice cooker was a must. Upon initially getting this i was quite happy/satisfied. But after 3 attempts at making brown rice that is always burnt at the bottom, i know I'm doing something wrong. What i do not like is the measuring cup that comes w/the cooker.

  • Summary: Perfect rice, every time! Just follow the manual as to portions and water. I have been adding just a bit more water than recommended. Nice machine, well made and durable.
