Summary: This is my first rice cooker, i like it do far. It cookes the rice fast with less water than you would usually use and after is all done it keeps the rice warm. The only down side is that i like to frie the garlic before adding the rice, and i cant do that because the rice cooker turns on only when you add the rice.
Summary: Have had this now since Dec 2011. Still going strong. Good little item for one or 2 people (in terms of single cook quantity). Easy to clean, cooks reasonably quickly, cooks well. (Mild) Con: Every time rice made , have to scrape to prevent sticky and hence burnt rice at bottom of cooking container. Coating coming off even with gentle care over the last 2 years.
Excerpt: Nice little rice cooker for 2 people or 3 people and fits easily in my kitchen slide out drawer. I used to have a large rice cooker but it was too big for the 2 of us... now I enjoy this smaller one and have had no problems with it. Even bought one for our son so he can easily make rice without burning it.
Summary: Although advertised as a 6-cup rice cooker, the pan which holds the rice is only marked to hold 3 cups. When I measured water from a measuring cup into it, the marks on the side of the pan were not accurate. The pan pretty much overflowed at 6 measuring cups of water. This was to be a replacement for my previous rice cooker (its pan measured an accurate 6 cups about 3/4 of the way up the pan, I was expecting the same in this one).
Excerpt: I bought one some 5 years ago. I used it three times a week. it worked beautifully until last night. I picked up a new one this morning. it died after one tour of duty. I exchanged for another one. I think it is an excellent product for the price. I'm hoping the new one won't let me down!
Excerpt: I have bought two of these in the last month and both times they have worked for the first 2-3 times then they stop and I can't use it anymore just because they are cheap does not make them good, I got the same one from walmart and it worked for almost 2years if not longer and that was using it at least 4-5 times a week and with this one we only used it maybe 6-7 times in the last month.
