Summary: I've bought about four of these rice cookers in the past, partly because I am familiar with them and the price, However, as the years have gone on, I have noticed steady decline in quality.Now, even with the timer, my rice is always mushy, My advice would be to purchase a higher quality cooker and not have to replace it as many times down the road.
Summary: I feared buying a new rice cooker because my last one was very disappointing but I decided to take the risk. I LOVE THIS RICE COOKER! The lid rest is perfect and the coating on the pot works wonders! No more soaking! I was so happy that someone still make the simple cook & warm rice cooker! If you want to mainly cook rice or steam veggies, I definitely recommend this one!
Summary: Does the job as advertised. Good value for money. I like the see-through removable lid. This allows you to rotate the steam vent so that you can place the rice cooker almost anywhere and adjust the lid so that the steam does not hit the underside of the cabinets. Also makes for easy clean up. Only 4 stars because it does not come up with a steam basket. This is only a rice cooker-nothing else.
painful and messy. Good if you like cleaning up messes, and turning rice into mashed potatoes...

Summary: First off you can't use a measuring cup - you need to use the cup it comes with, which is about 1/2 a cup. If you put in 1 and 1/2 of their cups that equates to 3 'cups' of water as measured by the markings on the pot itself. Not a biggie, just takes a couple of seconds. It heats up quickly. It went from being turned on to slopping hot rice water on the counter - the large hole in the lid, ostensibly for venting steam, let's a LOT of heated watery goop escape.
