Summary: I've hesitated buying a rice cooker for years. I've thought, "What can a rice cooker do, that a pan on the stove can't do?" After a friend extolled the virtues of her rice cooker, I thought, "OK, maybe I'll pick one up." I found this model on sale at a local store, brought it home and tried it out.
Summary: I seen a friend using one just like this and it appeared to be really easy to use. I bought one May 12th 2010 and have been using it twice a day to cook my rice. Another friend told me to use chicken broth instead of water to cook the rice in and it works great.
Summary: I received this rice cooker as a birthday gift 3 years ago. When I first started using it it worked fairly well except that it never switched off when the rice was finished. I often ended up with a good amount of crispy, burned rice at the bottom.
Summary: I owned this little rice cooker for less than a year, and was pleased at first. It cooked rice beautifully, and was easy to clean. I especially liked the sturdy spoon/spatula included with the cooker, which I've put to use in other cooking duties.
Not bad for the price, but not built to last either

Summary: This is a good value rice cooker. I think I bought mine at Target, but I've had it for 5+ years now & I may have gotten mine somewhere else. If you just want something basic, it does a good job at cooking rice and keeping it warm.
Summary: I bought this rice cooker from Target for $15. I've had it for a few months now and it works great and cooks the rice easily. The rice comes out really good and it is easy to use. You can cook vegetables at the same time.
Summary: I have been using this red rice cooker for less than 4 months and now it is completely unusable. I know how to gently clean a non-stick thing but this one is driving me crazy. The non-stick layer just keeps falling off, especially at the bottom.
Summary: Bought this rice cooker a bit over a year ago relying on mainly good reviews and the fact we didn't want to spend much. We should have saved our money. The unit has simply stopped working. Attempts to get a reply from Aroma customer service have failed.
