Summary: I have had my rice cooker for about 7 years and it has always performed perfectly for me. The browned rice on the bottom is perfect for chazuke in fact I would like to find out how to get more of the toasted rice. Also great the next day for fried rice.
Summary: I bought this one to replace a model that had a different name on it but was suspiciously identical in looks as this one. The last one I had worked 2 months. (We cook a lot of rice in our house, at least 4 times a week.
Summary: I bought this because it was on sale at Kroger and I borrowed my friend's all the time. Now I wish I would have purchased another brand, whether it was the same on a smaller one or more on another of the same size. PROS: - Worked great for 4 months before I put it in storage for the summer.
Summary: I am not sure if the quality is as good as it was over five years ago when i got this rice cooker, but i have had it so long that i am not even sure i remember living without it. The rice cooker has a few quirks, but once you practice a bit its perfect.
Summary: First, as soon as it's plugged in it powers on. Second, following the rice recipe in the manual ALWAYS ends with scorched rice. Third, it smells like burning plastic while it burns your dinner. There's no timer on this cooker--so I couldn't turn my back on it out of fear it would burn down my house.
Summary: I've had this rice cooker for over 7 years now and I love it! I cook mainly brown rice and quinoa in it. The trick for brown rice is 1 cup rice to two cups water and for quinoa it's more like one cup quinoa to 1 1/2 cups water.
Summary: Bar none, the worst small electrical appliance I ever owned (I am middle aged). After a month, the top fell apart and the inside lining melted off. The off and on switch and spring mechanism under the pot stopped working. Steamer part turns rice green.
Summary: I'd give -5 if I could. Worst rice cooker ever invented. The company should be sued. It cooked 3 batches of rice then it started to smell like burning plastic and stopped working. Save your money for a different brand.
Summary: Bought at $20. It's worth $2 for the spatula that it comes with. The "Keep Warm" functionality is completely useless as your rice will get hard and stale after being in the machine. You're better off putting left over rice in the fridge. The worst part is the inner bowl.
