Summary: As a die-hard brown and haiga rice eater with years of living in Japan, take it from me that this is not the rice cooker for you. It does both an unsatisfactory and messy job of it. If possible, buy a top of the line Zojirushi rice cooker instead. You will not regret it. Ganbatte kudasai!
Summary: If I had three of these, I could cook my three part meal at the same time. I use it for most everything. I've made all the rices, including the wild ones, cooked meat in it (I brown first by sautéing all veggies, then the meat, then I add the potatoes, or more veggies and put the setting to slow cook or time it). I've made an incredible pulled pork with bbq sauce, onions, peppers, etc.
Summary: Piece of junk. I can't believe that Panasonic made this lousy rice cooker. The cooked rice is never fluffy. The rice gets burnt at the bottom. Being an Indian, fluffy cooked rice is our major diet. I couldn't hate this rice cooker more. Oh well, it went back to Amazon for the way it spoils our rice.
Summary: We have used a rice cooker for many years - our last one quit after doing a few tons of rice, so i chose this one to replace it. We have tried several batches of rice - different quantities - and it just does not measure up. It sometimes burns the rice, sometimes it sticks and it boils over every time. Next. Now I find out that I am past the Amazon return date - it will be given away most likely.
