Easy to clean.
It also steams food, makes cakes, soup, and a slow cook function.
The rice (white or brown) comes out perfectly every time.

Summary: Brown rice cooks reasonably quickly and turns out fluffier and tastier in this machine than in an on-off machine, polenta cooks smoothly, and everything is less messy. The rice cooker is also very attractive. The only disadvantages are that its timer will only cook 13 hours in advance, it will only keep rice warm for 12 hours before shutting off, and it could be a bit easier to clean.

I am allergic to wheat, so I eat rice every day at almost every meal and I use a rice cooker more often than any appliance in my kitchen. This rice cooker is the first computerized one that I've owned. I've owned three on-off rice cookers before: a cheap little Salton (which was actually quite nice), a 10 c Panasonic on-off with hinged lid, and an 8 c Aroma on-off from Target with hinged lid. The features that I'm noting are probably common to all computerized rice cookers versus on-off machines, but in this price range the on-off machines are probably the competition.

1. Rice tastes better: I had expected the rice would taste about the same and the only difference would be in the extra features, but in fact the rice that I've made in the rice cooker is much tastier and fluffier than the rice from my on-off cooker. I make brown rice almost exclusively, so use the brown rice setting. I think that the rice may be fluffier because the pot simmers the rice instead of coming to a furious boil, since I've noticed that the cooking is relatively gentle and quiet. Unlike my previous rice cooker, I can't hear it cooking.

2. The cooking is relatively quick in spite of the simmer. My mother's computerized rice cooker is a Sanyo, and it has by default a soaking cycle, and that makes it take perhaps an hour if you don't explicitly turn off that function.

This is one of the best(less expensive) fuzzy logic cookers available in the market.


(i) Possible to make the rice ready at any desired time(you can set timings up to 13hrs using slow cook option)

For instance if you want the rice to be hot and ready when you come from Office, this one will accomplish the task for you. You can set the timer for 8hrs and when you come back, hot rice will be awaiting for you. This a great feature.

(ii) Possible to cook both White rice, Brown rice. Brown rice doesn't get cooked well with regular rice cookers.

(iii) You can steam food at the same time of cooking rice. Remember in case of steaming food during cooking rice at bottom, maximum cooking capacity should be 3 cups.

(iv) It makes delicious soups for you.

(v) One nice additional lineament is, we can bake yummy cakes in less than an hour.

(vi) As said in the manual, time to cook white rice will be 30-40 minutes, which is slower than the regular rice cookers, but it overcomes with the variety of other options.

(vii) It has a nice scoop holder.

(viii) Rice will never stick to the pan, Panasonic comes with a great quality aluminum pan.

(ix) Retractable power cord which befits for both short and long distances.

But every product has other side too:

(i) The LCD Background is not colored one, barely you can see the timings.

(ii) You can change the cooking timing only in the Ascending order(1hr, 1.30hr, 2hr) not the other way around, similarly the menu option you can navigate in only one way.

(iii) Requires more maintenance than the ordinary cookers, since it's microprocessor based even a small dust will have an impact on performance.

I bought this rice cooker for myself since I live in an apartment. I find the handiest feature to be the timer. The timer allows me to set the unit to cook rice at a later time and keep it warm so that it will be ready to eat when I get home from work. I also use the steamer tray simultaneously to cook fresh vegetables such as brussel sprouts, asparagus, broccolini, and red and yellow peppers.

Unfortunately after the vegetables are steamed they often look colorless and lifeless. They feel very soft and taste sweet though, so the rice cooker is doing it's job. Any colors from the vegetables will become ingrained into the plastic steamer basket so beware. My steamer basket is red now because I always put red bell peppers inside it.

Unit is easy to clean, although I wish it were simpler. It is necessary to remove the steamer cap and take it apart and wash it inside and out. It is also necessary to wipe the inside lid of the unit and drain the moisture catch.

I appreciate the way the unit tells you how much time is left before the rice is done. I just wish it could tell me how much time is left from the start of cooking (it only tells you when it is under 8 minutes until it's done).

This is my 1st and only rice cooker. I eat brown rice so I can't say this unit cooks brown rice better than others. I can say that the brown rice tends to stick to the bottom and that on occasion the rice feels like it gets a little burnt. Some of the rice grains near the bottom taste hard and crunchy after the unit is done cooking and they aren't supposed to have that kind of texture.

Easy to use, easy to program, although I haven't tried adjusting the cooking timer yet.
