    We own a large 60 cup, party-sized Aroma Housewares rice cooker and love it, so we decided to give this small 8 cup a try.

    Growing up in an area where white, sticky rice is served on the daily, you become a rice cooker connoisseur early on. Having owned pricey cookers and cheapy cookers of nearly all the popular sizes and makes, I’ve learned that the only things that matter are 1) is your rice cooked firm and chewy; 2) is it easy to clean; and 3) does it cook enough to feed your family. This pot met all these criteria for us as well as taking up very little counter space while looking good in steel & black. At 1st glance we thought, “this is the teeniest pot we’ve ever owned!” but it really does cook 8 full cups of perfectly done rice – translucent and slightly sticky. (We don’t eat fluffy, softer rice like Uncle Bens).

    We rinsed and drained completely 4 cups of raw rice (rice measured to the cup brim and used a colander to drain) then filled the pot with cool water to the 4 cup line in the pot. Doing so matched the Thumb Measuring rule (lightly touching the top of the raw rice, water should reach 1st digit). We were pleased that the lines are clearly marked in white. Using the “white rice” setting, the pot began its 10 minute count down after 25 minutes for a 35 total minute cook time. There was no wait time after cooking was complete. This review is based on the Sam’s Club Members Mark Thai (Hom Mali) Jasmine Rice, a long grain. We have not tried our other favorite brand which is Hinode Calrose White Rice, a medium grain, but I suspect it will need a bit more water, probably filled to the 8 liter mark, and will need at least a 15 minute wait for the rice to set before serving.

    We have not tried the “warm” setting for rice since we unplug the pot as soon as its done, serve it, then refrigerate whatever is left. I will use the warm setting occasionally for broths. I also plan to cook bulgar using more water than rice on the “brown rice” setting. The “delay” setting works well for jasmine rice presoaking, then cooking on flash rice. Probably won’t use it for steaming, but you never know…

    This cooker serves 3 persons well. Fast and easy to clean with no sticking. We also like the white speckled black pot – that’s a first for us. We’ve had the pot for a day and already tried two recipes. Very useful thus far!

    Unfortunately, the seller forgot to mention in the description the big disclaimer that the rice cocker that they are selling causes cancer (see picture). I tried to return the product to get my money back and it was really painful as the seller did not wanted to pay for the return at first. Then when I managed to get a prepaid label, they resended the parcel back again by mistake, but they did not send the money.

    Still no money received and they expect that I pay to return the package (that they mistakely re-sent).

    Will really not reccomend this product.

    I despise cooking rice. I never get it correct- either overcooked, under cooked or sticks to the pot. I just received this
    rice cooker and would say: 1. Super easy to use. 2. Super easy to clean, 3. So far only made white rice but it came out fantastic. 4. Simply put in rice and add fill to the water line indicated which is clearly marked depending on the number of cups of rice you are using, 5. Press button and 20 or so minutes later rice is done. 6. Once done the machine goes automatically to “keep arm” mode. 7. Rice came out perfect. 8. Cleanup a breeze – simply rinse the inner pot. 9. Very reasonably priced. 10. Doesn’t take up a lot of counter space. 11. Build is solid especially compared to the other “wonky” rice cookers on the market. 12. Thumbs up for me – a great purchase.

    Tried making rice before on the stove, but would always be over or under cooked. Saw this one was selling at a good price with a good amount of sells/reviews so decided to give it a chance. I have made rice out of it 5 times now. It is quick and easy plus comes out fully cooked every time. I would tell anyone to buy one of these if you want good rice!

    TL;DR: Buy this, it’s amazing. There’s no need to buy a fancier model, this makes perfect rice, is simple, is inexpensive, and does not take up much room.

    As someone with extensive experience in the kitchen, both professionally and at home, I cannot imagine anything simpler to cook than rice. There are only 2 ingredients, rice & water and it’s not very complicated. With so many appliances in my kitchen, why bother with another thing to buy, use once, and take up storage space? I have enough gadgets that seemed great on paper (air fryers, bread makers, etc.) which did not do the job as well as I could do using traditional methods, and which were often difficult to clean and maintain. So, a rice cooker? A machine to replace the easiest food in the world to cook? Why?

    My wife had suggested one, after all, all of the restaurants that served rice used them. But, I explained (probably incorrectly) they need to make a LOT of rice; we don’t, and that’s probably why they use them. Then I came across an article in one of my favorite food magazines, where they test products and came across their review of rice cookers. This rice cooker received the highest rating and was the least expensive of all their tests (and this is a serious chef’s magazine, not supported by advertising; their reviews are spot-on and unbiased). And so, I bit the bullet and thought that if it was garbage, I’d just toss it, it was inexpensive enough.

    As soon as I got this, I wanted to use it and prove to my wife why it was a waste of money and space, and how even a review from an almost always dependable magazine, could be wrong, Of course, I tried some basmati rice because I knew that there was no way that I was going to get fluffy rice with discrete, pieces of rice not stuck together. Once more I would show her who was right.
    After about 33 minutes when the machine said that the rice was done, I opened the lid and, behold, it was perfect! Each grain of rice was perfectly cooked, separate from all the other grains, flowable, and it was the same from the top of the pot to the bottom. Amazing and impressive.
    Then I decided that the time/temperature etc. of this gadget must have been designed for basmati rice, let’s try some short-grain sticky rice for sushi. Damn, how does it know? Again, perfect.

    I’m now a believer, I admit I was very wrong, and the answer to who needs a rice cooker is: I do and You do.

    – This machine cleans up beautifully, it leaves no rice on the bottom of the pot.
    – It is simple to use.
    – It cooks rice perfectly

    My only issue with it is, as per the attached photos, it is very difficult to see the water line markings on the inside of the pot. This machine is too good, however, to deduct any points for that.

    Two things to point out:

    1) The cup that it comes with equals 3/4 of a dry cup measure. It says that in the instructions but on the cup itself, there is a 3/4 full mark. That’s a bit confusing but, the measuring cup is 3/4 cup when it is filled to the top. If you fill it to the 3/4 mark, you’re weighing out 3/4 of a cup (or a little over 1/2 of a regular cup) so just fill it to the brim.

    2) There is a steam vent on the lid. It’s probably not best to place this under a cabinet; condensation will form on the underside of the cabinet and drip or, worse, penetrate the cabinet wood and get moldy. Keep it in a position so that the vent is clear of anything above it.

    I highly recommend, despite my previous insistence that nobody needs a rice cooker, this machine. It’s amazing.
