Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) This is now our third rice cooker. We don't use it every day, but I do make a number of dishes frequently that require rice. The ability to dump rice and water and press a button makes this very worthwhile. Previous cookers either scorched the rice on the bottom and/or made a nasty disgusting mass of starch. Not so here. Handy markers inside tell you how much water to add depending on the amount of rice you're cooking.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I went back and forth between this one and a more expensive Zojirushi machine, but ultimately decided to save around $50 and get this model. For our 2 person household, it's a great machine. Pros: - Set it and forget it rice making. I don't have to watch the pot. - Multiple settings for rice, porridge, brown rice, etc. I've even cooked polenta and risotto perfectly in here. - Easy cleanup due to the stick free surfaces.
Summary: note that sanyo discontinue all "Inner pot" part for this product (and the same goes for most of their other rice cookers). you won't find a new inner pot anywhere even if u go to their authorized part dealer, which means that if u would to buy this product now, you would be stuck with replacing a perfecting fine working rice cooker couple years down the road just because you have a scratched inner pot.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I've had several rice cooker in the last 10 years and this one is by far the best one! it never burns the rice at the bottom, even if you let it sit for hours. Try this: 3 cups of "jazmin" rice (with the little cup that comes with it) 1 teaspoon of garlic powder 1 tablespoon of salt 2 tablespoons of oil (EVOO better) water optional: frozen sweet peas, corn, etc.
Summary: I purchased this rice cooker after much research and thought this would be a good choice to make brown rice and pooridge. The description did not tell me that this rice cooker was manufactured in China. The interior is a non-stick surface. After many issues with toys, dog food and other items that are made in China I really did not want to bring an item in my home that food is prepared for my family that could possibly not be healthy for my family.
Summary: This cute little rice cooker is awesome. My daughter spent 3 weeks in Costa Rica in June with a "host family". She sent many emails back home, and spoke often of the rice served at every meal. I bought this cooker while she was gone, and started experimenting. Our favorite rice so far is a "wild brown rice blend" bought in bulk from Whole Foods. I usually make 4 cups (8 when cooked), and add one can of chicken broth with the cooking water.
Summary: After reading so many great reviews, I decided to take the plunge and buy this rice cooker. I love rice, but I actually use my cooker more often to make steel-cut oatmeal. Every night before I go to bed, I put 1 part steel-cut oatmeal with 3 parts water and a pinch of salt in the cooker. I press the menu button to the porridge setting, press the timer button, set the time using the hour and minute buttons, then press cook.
