Summary: This rice cooker was a Christmas present in Dec of 2012, and it worked perfectly--until late June 2013. Then the timer started being erratic, and now the heating element cannot even bring water to a boil. What a waste.
Summary: Brown rice must be cooked correctly. This product does just that! YES, it takes over an hour n 1/2 to do just that. healthy and fully cooked rice. plan in advance when to cook so its ready in time. There are many types of rice, each with its own water/ cooking ratio.
Summary: I've had rice cookers before and they did the job fine but I have to say I've been pretty pleased with this purchase. It doesn't burn the rice on the bottom. Rice is perfect every time. It is a breeze to clean. So this is how a good ricer cooks. Very happy.
Summary: Going to post something to their website as well as here on Amazon as I think this question is illuminating. Could someone tell me how to cook the rice without going through a lot of conversion?
Summary: Got this cooker for a wedding gift. It takes 90-100 minutes to cook 2 cups of brown rice and the time just increases the more rice you cook. It takes only 45min on the stove, no matter how much rice you cook.
Summary: I have purchased this rice cooker at Target for $30 in 2009. Almost everyday I use it even now I am using it. It is very easy to clean and easy to maintain. Perfectly a good choice for a rice cooker. I would recommend for any one who are looking for a decent rice cooker.
Summary: I have never had any issue with this rice cooker. I have owned this product for two and a half years now, and finally buying a new one after I moved across the country and left my old one behind.
Summary: As a Costa Rican, I make rice almost every day and for every meal. It's my main staple and I have to have it. This pot has served me well, for the most part. It cooks long grain, jasmine, basmati, short grain... any type, even arborio (risotto) rice without issues.
