  • Summary: I had the smaller model for 10 years. I was lazy and scratched the non-stick by not washing the rice separate. Will treat this unit better. Works great. Just push cook and all goes on without supervision.

Had for 5 years. Decent for the money but Messy

  • Summary: For the money, this is a decent little rice cooker. It does a very nice job of cooking rice. I've had my unit for about 5 years and the coating on the inside is only just beginning to get scratches and flake off. In my opinion, this is quite good for only $30 and 5 years. It has a much nicer interior coating than most cookers in this price range.

messy EC-505

N. Rains "Lucid Persona", Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: I find that this unit spatters and sputters terribly when I make quantities of rice measuring 3 cups dry or more. It is a 10 cup cooked unit and I can't imagine making any larger quantities than I have. I use the right amount of rice and water. Water spills over onto my countertop and through the air hole. As it nears being done the liquid spatters out the air hole all over my countertop. What a mess! I threw away the packing materials or I would probably return it.

great product, iffy instruction manual

Lisa Stephenson "stphmli", Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: I just recently purchased this rice cooker, and I have to admit I had some hesitation after reading some reviews. My first time using it was disastrous; I put in 2 cups of rice and followed the instruction manual about how much water to use. I walked away and came back to sticky steam and a huge sticky mess. My rice was also way overcooked and looked like mashed potatoes.

Bought a couple

  • Summary: After reading reviews on Amazon, I purchased this rice cooker for my mom for Christmas. She loves it! I bought her a Salton cooker the year before and it bit the dust after a couple months of use. In comparison, she said the non-stick surface on this cooker was a dream to clean. Once I knew it was a winner, I bought this same cooker for a friend for a shower gift. So far, so good. Both people I've purchased them for have been happy.

Great till it broke.

Comp411, Amazon
12 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this rice cooker about a 1 1/2 years ago, and the nonstick coating has been peeling ever since the warranty expired. I contacted Sanyo because I thought they made replacement bowls for the cooker, but they don't. Buy a more expensive rice cooker because they usually make replacement bowls, or go with the Panasonic SR-G10G which has an aluminum pot. When it was actually safe to use, the rice cooker actually performed very well.
