Summary: I decided to buy this simple rice cooker after 2 other brands failed after only 2-3 months of use. Both were fancier versions made in Japan, but both utterly disappointing. Years ago I had a simple Panasonic rice cooker and it never failed. It was a workhorse! My new one is a no frills version, newer styling of course...but dependable as ever.
Summary: Believe or not, I first purchase the newest rice cooker from Panasonic ,Panasonic SR-DE103 , it performed badly so I returned it. This one even was not made in Japan, it worked much better comparing to the SR-DE 103.
Summary: Excellent rice cooker, though it does only have one cook setting, which was fine for our needs. We bought this one because of the aluminum pan, to replace our cooker that had a teflon pan, as the teflon had started to chip away. This one isn't non-stick, and some rice does stick to the bottom after cooking, but it cleans very easily after a little pre-soaking.
Summary: It's NOT non-stick. If you are use to this feature, you will be disappointed. The pot is aluminum. Forget non-stick and forget aluminum. Go get stainless steel. It's way more sanitary. Stainless steel is not 100% non-stick, but used properly, you can achieve this. Got my stainless steel from Chinatown for thirty five bucks. You could probably find one here too, but I needed it right away. There is no option to turn the "keep warm" feature off. Only way is to unplug.
Summary: As a die-hard brown and haiga rice eater with years of living in Japan, take it from me that this is not the rice cooker for you. It does both an unsatisfactory and messy job of it. If possible, buy a top of the line Zojirushi rice cooker instead. You will not regret it. Ganbatte kudasai!
Excerpt: I have used the Panasonic SR-G10G 5.5-Cup Rice Cooker in the past and it is a very simple rice making gadget. As mentioned in my title, it gets the job done and that's about it. My family consumes a LOT of rice and I cook rice almost everyday so I have used my fair share of rice cookers. This one is the simplest of them all. I am not entirely satisfied with the Panasonic SR-G10G 5.5-Cup Rice Cooker.
