Great No-Frills Rice Cooker

agirlwithaguitar, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: It's exactly what I wanted. I wanted a simple, no-frills rice cooker that fits in my small kitchen under my low cabinets. I didn't want the kind that keeps my rice warm because that dries it out! I often make rice hours ahead of time and want to be able to go outside or to the store and not worry that my rice will be dried to a crisp by the time I get back to it.

Great little gadget

maedae66 "sophie", Amazon

  • Summary: We lucked out on a fancy Zojirushi rice cooker 7 years ago at a thrift store. Boy was it durable! Our dumb cat knocked it down from ON TOP of the refrigerator and it kept working like it didn't even happen. Eventually, after who even knows how much use, the inside insert start to peel off its covering. Because we liked it so much, we tried to find a new one, but as the model had been discontinued a few years ago, we couldn't find a replacement.

A good value for the price

Henry Bruns, Amazon

  • Summary: It is a good and inexpensive rice cooker; four stars seems like the right rating. You must increase the water by half for brown rice.

Rarely will you go wrong with Zojirushi

bzbeehive, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Love the size. Does not take up too much room on the counter. Product is well made. The cooking pan itself seems so much better than the other cheap models I have own. In fact, when I wash my other pans, they would emit a black film which would get on my drying towels. My other unit broke after 9 months of use...I think it was a Rival. This is worth the price. Please use only wooden spoons or plastic rice scooper to remove rice or you may scratch up the pan.

Give it a try

five remembrances, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I personally love my rice cooker, but I will admit that the rice it makes is not perfect. It can be a little gluey - a little. For me, the trade off in convenience makes it worth it. I love being able to plug it in and forget about it. My husband is a serious cook, and he won't use it. The rice he makes on the stove top is much better - individual grains, nice and dry. But often I just make rice to put in soup, so it doesn't really matter to me.

The best appliance I ever bought!

Kenn Caesius, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: It truly is. By now I have had the Zoujirushi NHS-06 for several years and it's showing its age - the inner pan is a little scratched but still washes spotlessly clean. The outer pot has some grime of never being wiped down but I am not much for appearances. It still makes a delcious pot of white and brown rice.

Simple Rice Cooker Works Miracles

Parker Frontier, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: I heard about this little miracle from Roger Ebert's website several years before he died. I don't know why this thing works so well, but it will cook perfectly anything dried that you add water to. That includes things like Quinoa, brown rice, instant rice, oatmeal, white rice... you name it. It never overcooks, and never undercooks unless you don't put in enough water. The non-stick surface cleans very easily, and it comes with an indispensable utensil, a rice paddle.

Best ever when cooking for one...

L. Johnson, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: I have had one of these little cookers for over five years. It get used a coupla times a week. I've never had it botch a batch of rice. True, it doesn't have a lot of features, but that's just stuff not to go wrong. It cooks one measure of rice of rice is less than 22 minutes, perfect when cooking for one. Keeps rice warm for up to a half hour easily, to turn it off, just briefly lift the pan.

fabulous!

RK, Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: I love this rice maker! I use it very often. My only complaint is that it "spits" a lot of sticky moisture out of the hole. I have been covering the lid with a cloth napkin (hanging it over the handle) and that works great to catch the spray.

Nifty little cooker - marginal instruction booklet

C. Portwood "Old Griz", Amazon
2 July 2011
  • Summary: We just got this cooker in the mail 6/30/11 and decided to try it out. First of all, I like to say it did an excellent job of cooking the rice, at least to our palate. We tried it with a generic California brown rice of no exotic brand and it came out perfect. We used the maximum amount that the instruction booklet called for and there was a little residue that spewed out of the vent hole in the lid but the cooker contents come to a rolling boil and the small amount that...
