pretty good for the money

Lilith White, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Cooked instant rice and normal rice perfectly. Thought I'd have to worry about greasing the pan, or any different cook times for different rice but nope, I can just set it and walk away and it does all the work/worry for me. Can't wait to try potatoes.

Broke after three uses.

K. Nicholas "knicholas", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this on 12/16/13, and it was broken by 02/14/14. I don't eat a lot of rice. I used it a total of 3 times. It did a good job while it lasted - the rice did not burn to the bottom and the warming function worked well. 10 cups is a really optimistic amount of rice - realistically it makes about 6 cups max. The quality is not the best. The aluminum of the liner is very thin.

Gave it as a gift

Mark Kobayashi, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this rice cooker to give it as part of a Christmas gift to a needy family here in Hawaii. The church that I go to participates every Christmas in giving gifts to families in need and I felt since most people here eat rice as a staple, some family could use it. I have one just like it and it works great.

Stopped working after second use and capacity is much smaller than stated

  • Summary: I received this as a gift to replace a Salton rice cooker that I've had for about 20 years. The Salton is still going strong, but I wanted something non-stick and I figured it was about time for a replacement anyway. First of all, I don't know how they can call this a 10-cup. It is very small and holds maybe 5 cups of cooked rice at maximum capacity (which would be less than 2 cups dry).

Don't buy this model rice cooker!

D, Amazon
23 January 2011
  • Summary: Incredibly poor design. Every batch that I have made to date has boiled over and I end up having to clean up a big goopy mess off of the counter. More hassle than it is worth. I have tried varying the amount of rice as well as the portion size, and nothing seems to make a difference. Even using ¾ cup of rice and 1 ½ cups of water, the mixture ends up boiling over the edges. I would not recommend this rice cooker at all, and will stop using it.

Perfect for any rice and much, much more

Spencer, Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: I owned a rice cooker for many years. A single switch model that automatically cooked white rice. I like other kinds of rice, but it wasn't very good for brown rice or risotto, anything but white. I thought the timer mechanism was geared for white rice. Then I found out about fuzzy logic machines that could tell what sort of rice you had put into the pot. But these are very expensive.

10 Cup is a joke. This is a 2.5L (1 US Gl) Cooker - 2 Cups Raw Rice

  • Summary: What can I say, I got this to replace a 2 cup cooker because it was not big enough for me. Turns out, this is no bigger. Its a 2.5L Cooker and takes about 2.5 Cups of rice. (Using the Cup provided with the cooker). About 5 cups cooked rice. The quality of cooker is nice though, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a small 2 cup cooker.

Works beautifully

SChicago, Amazon

  • Summary: This little guy makes perfect rice! All you have to do is follow the directions. Clean up is so easy. There seem to be some negative reviews about it being messy, but my guess is that those people didn't read the directions.

Seriously? What do you people want for 20 bucks?

Dawn M. Robbins, Amazon
26 October 2010
  • Summary: Where do people go when they are cooking rice?? Personally I am in the kitchen doing other prep work or cooking and am glad not to have one more burner taken up on the cooktop. Perhaps you can't 'set it and forget it' but this product works great for $20. I use it to make whole grains (brown rice, bulgar wheat, quinoa, etc) for my 9 month old and I do like them a bit on the softer side, so I add extra liquid.

Great Little Appliance!

Kneat Knitter, Amazon
8 June 2010
  • Summary: This has to be one of the best little kitchen appliances I have ever bought! I was a little puzzled at first how it worked and couldn't figure out how to set the timer. Ha. It just does what it is supposed to... cook the rice and turn it to warm when it's done. So you do have to be around when it clicks off. Set your timer for the (very accurate) timings in the manual and be in the kitchen at that time.
