Summary: Well, I love a good rice cooker. However, I seldom cook rice. I use this for steaming, baking cakes, roasting meats, making soups and sauces. Spaghetti sauce, chili, pork roast, pineapple upside- down cake, creamed chicken and biscuits....and much more. Try it....
Summary: For years, I thought a rice cooker was a needless purchase, and just made rice in a pan on the stove. Sometimes the rice just didn't turn out. So when a cooking show chef urged everyone to buy a rice cooker, I took his advice. I researched which to buy and tried this one. I'm so glad I did.
Summary: We have owned this rice cooker for over four years and it is still going strong. It is great for making white and brown rice as well as Quinua. We have also steamed veggies in the included basket though you have to be careful because the steaming occurs very quickly and your veggies can turn to mush...
Summary: I don't care for this rice cooker. I was hoping for one that could cook up to 8 cups or so of rice if I had friends over. It turns out, you need to cook about 2.5 to 4 cups or more, or this one really performs badly. I hate it.
Summary: This rice cooker has been just awful. Spits steaming water everywhere through the vent at the top. Takes way to long to clean this thing. Don't even think about cooking your quinoa or other grains in this thing. They get stuck in the tiny hidden spaces around the lid.
Summary: I will admit, the rice cooker worked great for the few weeks I used it. Although I was slightly annoyed by the noise it makes to alert you that it was done cooking, it makes a shrill beeping noise almost like a carbon monoxide detector.
Ever wonder why rice in restaurants are really fluffy?
12 May 2012
Summary: Ever wonder why rice in restaurants are really fluffy? The secret is that they have a sealed rice cooker like this Aroma Digital Rice Cooker to lock in all the steam to make that jasmine rice, so fluffy and cooked to perfection.
Summary: We made some basmati rice as our first attempt with this Aroma 8-cup rice cooker -- and it came out absolutely perfect. Years ago, we had a rice cooker with the lever that flips up when the rice is done, and I'm pretty sure we eventually threw it away because the rice never came out right.
Summary: This is a great rice cooker. I cook several different kinds of rice on a regular basis (short-grain, long-grain, jasmine, brown, black, and quinoa) along with veggies in the steamer basket. It turns out very well, as long as you don't leave it on the "keep warm" setting very long.
Summary: I wanted a rice cooker for cooking brown rice. This doesn't have a separate button for cooking brown rice, which I thought it would, but by following the manufacturer's directions the brown rice cooked perfectly. I also cooked steel cut oatmeal and other recipes with no problems.
