Product Description

Package Quantity: 1

A complete, healthy, fat-free meal can easily be prepared in this electric rice cooker. The nonstick removable inner pot produces up to 6 cups of cooked rice, while the steaming basket holds enough vegetables or shrimp for one or two hungry people. Simple to operate, the cooker features just one switch and two settings, cook and keep warm. During cooking, a red light is illuminated; when cooking is complete, the switch automatically reverts to the keep-warm setting and a yellow light comes on. Moisture and nutrients are sent back into the cooker by the domed glass lid, which also allows for easy viewing. After cooking, the rice should be allowed to sit for about five to seven minutes before removing the lid. Accessories include a measuring cup and a plastic rice paddle for stirring and serving the rice. The cup, paddle, pot, and steamer all should be washed by hand in hot, soapy water after each use. The rice cooker, including its stay-cool side loop handles, measures approximately 11-1/2 by 8-1/2 by 10 inches.

Customer Reviews

The size is perfect for a small family.

Finally, rice always burns on the bottom because the unit gets so hot - it doesn't burn so that it's not still edible, but it becomes brown and a bit rubbery.
Diane
I've cooked brown rice and basmati rice and it comes out perfectly each time.

Several hours of my life were wasted pondering what rice cooker to purchase. There are dozen options available and I too was originally getting sucked into the though larger price tag =better rice, how wrong I was. Simple, easy to use, affordable and perfect brown rice on the first try (no easy task). Save your money for Vegas, this is all you need.

I just got this today and made my first batch of rice. I think the cooker did a pretty good job. However, if you don't stir it towards the end of the cooking time or when most of the water has evaporated, the rice will brown on the bottom. So it's not a set it and forget it operation. But I like the cooker since I can saute onions and garlic in the bowl before adding the rice. I made a modified version of the chicken and spinach risotto recipe that comes with the cooker, and it turned out really good. I used regular long grain rice, a handful of frozen cut spinach, and added steamed shrimp which I steamed in the basket while the rice was cooking. The cooker automatically switches to warm once the water has evaporated but more water can be added and the cycle restarted if necessary. I think I will find this very useful for making quick one pot meals.

To help keep the starch from bubbling up and spraying out of the vent hole, rinse the rice thoroughly and drain. Heat a small amount of olive oil in the rice bowl, once the oil is heated, carefully add the rice and saute it for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the water and continue cooking. Rinsing alone will not prevent the starch from accumulating. I'm not a food scientist and I can't offer a scientific explanation, but something happens to the starch when the rice is sauteed or lightly toasted before steaming and it won't bubble up and out of the vent hole. For a change of pace, I saute onions and garlic in the bowl first and then just put the rice in and saute it along with the other ingredients before adding the water. To jazz it up a bit, I may add a pinch or two of turmeric (to make the rice yellow) to the water and a handful of peas. The possibilities are endless with this little cooker.

I have eyed rice cookers for years but have bought one because I did not want to find a place to store it in the kitchen. When I saw this little red one Target, I picked it up on a whim. I love it!. I've had it for a few months and probably use it at least 3 times a week. My favorite is to make Trader Joe's Brown Rice Medley with vegtable or chicken broth and then steam some vegtables and salmon or fish the last 10 minutes or so. Season differently every time. Makes enough for dinner for 2 and at least one lunch for work the next day. Nothing special but always hits the spot, is easy and requires no thought or planning-- a good default meal. This cooker is easy clean-up, no mess, can't over-cook. I'm anxious to try new recipes.

Rice has always been something I liked, white rice that is. Now that I'm on southbeach diet white rice is out but brown and wild rice is in for phase two and three. If you've ever tried to cook wild rice from scratch you know it takes a loooooonnnnggg time to cook properly. I like a mix of rices with the wild rice so what I do is put the wild in here first cook it for a half hour then put the brown rice in the same pot with it, add more water (one to one according to book directions but note that one mark in the cooker is more like a cup and a half in the measuring cup) and cook for the full 45 minutes recommended for the brown rice, I've made several batches this way always comes out great. I like a splash of olive oil and salt in with mine too, makes it taste even better. I love this cooker, rice on the stove or in the microwave cookers can be a little hit and miss sometimes, this toy is worth the sixteen bucks and comes with a veggie steamer basket too...don't know if I'll ever use it but it's nice to know it's there.

I was looking for something to keep queso dip warm at a party. I saw this and it works great. I just throw in the ingredients and it is ready in a few minutes and keeps it warm for as long as I need it to. I have also used this several times for rice. It is great because I can leave part of the rice in there once done cooking to stay warm while I take the rest out to make fried rice. They are both warm and ready to serve at the same time. I got the rice cooker out of the cupboard the other day and dropped the lid. It is tempered glass so it shattered in tiny pieces. I am just glad that this is such an inexpensive item and will be getting a new one the next time I go to the store. My only regret is that I can't seem to find a replacement lid, it seems a shame to throw away a perfectly good appliance just because the lid broke.

I'm surprised at how poorly this rice cooker works, considering all of the great reviews posted here. I followed the instructions provided, filling up the cooker with the appropriate amount of water & rice, and after about six uses, it hasn't cooked properly even one time. I always have to add about twice as much water. The manual also states that brown rice takes longer to cook, it should also say to add a lot more water. The cover doesn't seem to fit very well and inevitably, water collects on the outside of the lid while cooking.

Finally, rice always burns on the bottom because the unit gets so hot - it doesn't burn so that it's not still edible, but it becomes brown and a bit rubbery.

Overall, I'm not impressed with this unit at all and I would not recommend it to anyone.
