Summary: I bought this cooker at a big box store and have been using it for about 2 weeks. I cooked a large pot of rice for my dogs yesterday using the time delay feature. When I got home yesterday, he told me that the rice cooker had exploded!
Summary: This is the second Aroma ARX-930 rice cooker and steamer I have purchased. I liked mine so much that I bought one for my son. It holds a large enough quantity for a crowd, and the outside stays cool.
Summary: This is a step above the basic rice cooker. What I really like about this model is the pail that the rice cooks in is extremely easy to clean. Just soak it in water and everything falls out. Like all rice cookers, it is easy to use.
Summary: I've used this cooker for the past 4 years and have never had a problem making any kind of rice with it; brown, white, basmati, long or short grained... it's all been perfect. This cooker takes the worry out of rice when preparing a large meal. Easy to use and easy to clean.
Summary: Pro: fill, push button, ignore it until done. Con: Takes WAY over an hour (1.5?) to cook 2 cups (uncooked) brown rice. I should have bought a smaller cooker. I never put more than 3 cups of rice in, and never use it as a veggie steamer.
Summary: We purchased this rice cooker at least 4-years ago, and it has worked great for cooking white and brown rice, normally in quantities of 2 cups or less (uncooked). I would guess that in the time we have had it, we probably only used it on average 1-2 times per month.
Summary: We purchased this to steam veggies and cook rice. It is very easy to use, clean, and manage. My teenagers love it as it isn't difficult for them to cook what they want on their own. The price was compatible to others.
Summary: i had one of these by the same manufacturer and it worked great. But I could not get this one to make white or brown rice well no matter what I did. Went online and tried every trick and still no luck. best of luck to everyone else that wants to try it.
