Summary: Great brand, but made terrible rice. My rice maker developed electrical issues when it was still under warranty. Cuisinart made it easy for me to exchange my rice cooker & I now have a Cuisinart rice cooker that I love!
Buyer Beware! Stops working after less than 2 years
30 August 2012
Summary: I used this rice cooker at least twice a week for almost two years. It was a fabulous product until I got the "E4" error on my screen. When I looked this up to try to solve the error, I could find nothing and neither could my husband who can not sleep when something isn't working. The information I did find was that other folks were getting this error and couldn't fix it. I was told to chuck it.
Summary: It basically does what it says. Only ran into two problems so far, the one cup water level mark for brown rice setting is too much water for one cup of rice. Also the rice is cooked long before the timer turns off. But I'm willing to over look that because cooking small amounts of anything in these automatic cookers is usually tricky. The biggest negative is that the cooking pot is not actually dishwasher safe despite what's advertised and what it says in the manual.
Summary: Best Rice cooker you could buy! Rice comes out perfect & also has vegetable steamer. There's a timer so you could throw rice in before you go to work and come home to the rice cooked perfectly. It cooks every type of rice from your standard to your sticky. I definately recommend this product!
Summary: This thing is great. I'm moving up from a basic rice cooker to this, which has a lot more space than my other one did. Something that I want to note is that this apparently does have time cooking (you set X many hours before the rice starts to cook) but with this rice cooker, I find that leaving it on "warm" for 24 hours does NOT make it extremely mushy. This was the problem with my old rice cooker, that only after a few hours on warm it would become mushy.
Summary: The Cuisinart Cooker is easy to use and produces quality foods. The only thing it is missing is a timer letting you know how long the food will take to cook. It is easy to clean and store. The booklet that comes with it has nice recipe ideas, too.
