  • Summary: I'm not a real cook, but this thing makes preparing rice a breeze. Just don't forget to add oil or butter and stick to the indicated amount of water!

Check for rice-water proportion (1:2)

SJ, Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: Exactly, amount of water matters the most. I have been using this cooker for more than a year and I have been cooking rice all my life. I should say, this product is excellent. I'm not sure if I got a "special piece" :P or something. The key is the right proportion of rice to water. 1:2 is ideal.

  • Summary: I do not recommend this cooker as i just bought new one in march 2005 and stopped working by september 2005. Another bad thing with this is that the vessel for cooking will start lossing inside black color with in first few months which makes rice sticks to vessel.

  • Summary: This rice cooker has worked great for me. The first time I used it, the rice came out a little dry. Now, I just add a bit more water and it turns out perfect.

not a bad product for the price...

Elizabeth, Amazon
8 May 2005
  • Summary: The rice cooker worked great for a few years and then just died one day. It is frustrating but we definitely got a lot of use out of it. I would say for a small investment its a pretty good product. Very easy to use, and the non stick coating was easy to wash.

I threw it away after 1 use

  • Summary: I have never used a rice cooker before so I followed the instructions and started cooking 2 cups of rice. I checked on the rice about 1/2 hour later and the water was shooting out of the steam hole and all over my kitchen wall.

Lemon of a cooker

Cathleen De Foor, Amazon
24 July 2004
  • Summary: Bought cooker and used it three times -- it smelled like something was burning and quit working!!! I have been trying to get Target or Black and Decker to replace or honor warranty--I haven't heard from either. Buy the Sanyo rice cooker from their website!

glass in food is not quite tasty

Hanni Horn, Amazon
30 June 2004
  • Summary: I am *very* disappointed in this purchase. I have used this cooker less than 10 times, and each time the rice has been dry and gross. My mother has a rice cooker that's going on ten years of steady use, and the rice always turns out flawless - i know that good rice cookers exist. The sojirushi (sp?
