Summary: I really like this rice cooker. Its settings are great. I've cooked, white, basmati and brown rice in this and steamed veggies. The only drawback is the pooling of water when you lift the lid in the lip of the cooker. Its hard to clean right where its connected. I also turn it off when its done, instead of keep warm b/c I don't want the rice to burn. But the cooker works great.
Summary: This is my first rice cooker and, now, I realize I should have ordered a larger one. That does not take away from the fact that this unit performs admirably. No problem with how it works and the rice is perfect. Later, I will order a larger one for other reasons, but this one will make at least 10 cups of cooked rice perfectly.
Summary: This is the best rice cooker for the price. There is a Japanese one that costs much more but this one is just as good quality. The Sanyo is easy to use and the rice stays warm for hours. I am very particular about the taste of brown rice and this cooker does make the rice taste better than rice cooked on the stove.
Summary: We have owned and thoroughly used ours for about two years, and we have had no issues with it whatsoever. We have friends over sometimes who are "rice snobs" and they are impressed by both the consistency and quality of the cooked rice this thing produces, though naturally they prefer their own hand-cooked rice by a narrow margin. Cleaning is easy, though it is fairly easy to put fine scratches in the cooking bowl, FYI.
Summary: this thing cooks rice just right. i usually do the white rice, so just plug in and hit button and wait little while it's done, and done right. was shipped fast, and the cleaning of this thing is fast also. after the first couple times when you get a feel for it then cleaning should take but a few minutes. rinse, wipe, dry, done, back on shelf to store till next use. i also love the keep warm function.
Summary: I didn't know what a rice cooker was until I met my wife. She used them for years. We had a very old Tiger rice cooker and My wife asked for a new cooker for her birthday. I researched and settled on the Sanyo. We have not been disappointed. Brown rice, white rice, sticky rice, this cooker does it all and more. Just follow the directions and you get perfect rice every time.
Summary: I wanted to incorporate more grains into my diet, but did not want to stay in the kitchen while they cooked. I decided to try a rice cooker. After reading a lot of reviews, I decided on the Sanyo brand as the best value among the fuzzy logic types. Sanyo offers the same features at lower prices. The F50S cooks enough rice for a family meal and offers the timer, special settings for mixed grains, brown rice and porridge I wanted.
