We cook rice and grains frequently, as do many Asian-Americans. We have used plastic-bowl microwave vessels, aluminum & teflon pots, steam pressure cookers and several others over the past five plus decades. They all work, but each has a down side. For instance wait till your visitors or grand kids hear the hissing monster of a pressure cooker.

We feared aluminum toxicity, teflon ingestion, plastic leaching and plain uncertainty of what new epidemiologic research will unleash on us tomorrow. My wife and I have conveniently labeled our failing intellects as chronic "rice-in" toxicity. Forget age, it must be all that peeling cooking pot and rice!

The stainless steel Miracle is a reasonable answer, unless we find out in some distant future that stainless steel is also a hazard. Probably not. This cooker performs well and passes muster readily with us. We have not noted any spills or crusty rice paste sticking to the bottom. We do have the advantage of having cooked rice and grains for many years. But this is an easy skill to acquire if you learn to vary the amount of water used to suit the type of rice or grain. Don't lose heart too soon.

The pot washes easily if you soak it in water for a few hours -- and better still leave it overnight for your spouse to take care of tomorrow!

A vege tray comes with the cooker. It steams beans, peas and carrots well and to a ready-to-eat tender state.

I agree that a price of some $50.00 would have been better, but the convenience and safety are worth the added whimper while you pay the price. You could shop around and may be able to find a slightly lower price. And don't blow the savings on pricey coffee.

IT HAS BEEN 4+ YEARS since my initial review.

I bought this rice cooker over two months ago, to replace an old aluminum bowl rice cooker that was starting to show a lot of wear and tear after many years of use. I spent a lot of time searching for a rice cooker that wasn't made with aluminum or those non-stick surfaces. I was delighted to find this one that has a stainless steel bowl and steaming basket. It really looks a lot nicer than the picture on the page shows, so I thought it would be great to do a video so you could see what it really looks like.

I use it practically every day for one thing or another and like the nice 8 cup size. I make brown rice, wild rice, lentil soup, pea soup, steel cut oatmeal, quinoa, barley and other whole grains. Everything seems to come out perfectly and clean-up is easy. I usually set the bowl in the sink with some warm water in it for about 10 minutes and then just sponge out any remaining residue. It's also comes with a steamer basket which lets you perfectly steam your vegetables. This came in really handy around the holidays when I was running out of burners on the stove and trying to get the meal on the table at all once.

I'm terrible about measuring things and I usually just add my grains to the pot and kind of "eyeball" how much water I need. (Do you do that too?) I've probably used this close to a hundred times already and still haven't burned anything or had anything stick to the bottom of the pot that won't come out easily after 10 minutes of soaking. That in itself is a huge thing for me. I don't know if the stainless steel cooks things more evenly or what, but I was always having things burned or sticking to the old aluminum cooker.

Two thumbs up for this great rice/grain/other stuff cooker!

Update 5/29/15 - We are still using this rice cooker several times per week and it still works perfectly. It's our most used kitchen appliance! Lately we've been making a lot of quinoa and barley in it. On the weekend I will make sushi rice.

I bought the rice cooker a year ago when I was looking for one that did not have non-stick coating or aluminum or plastic bowl. I'd been looking for a long time and was happy to find that this one had been changed/updated to include a stainless steel bowl.

We use it most for brown rice (which we eat at least once or twice a week) - comes out great! perfectly done and fluffy. Have also used it for oatmeal and other grains such as quinoa, as well as a bit for steaming vegetables. I found a ton of recipes online to make in this. Haven't tried all of them that I want to.

My company sells another, top of the line, expensive rice cooker. I don't use it because I don't want the "non-stick" bowl. I almost gave this one 4 stars then realized I have no complaints about this cooker, so gave it the full 5. Maybe I was hesitant because I just found out there is another rice cooker that has a crockery bowl. :-) I'd sure like to try it.

Highly recommended. Cooks very well. I have not cooked brown rice yet. White rice comes out great. I add slightly more water than with previous rice cooker. I wish every appliance had a non-teflon option.

It isn't coated. In order to clean avoid leaving warming heat on when there's very little rice left, keep lid on for warming, and simply soak cooking pot in water for a few minutes and wipe away easily with a sponge.

I'm...ahem... Asian, so rice is a part of many meals. I had a somewhat fancier model Aroma brand rice cooker before, but the cooking pot was teflon coated and gosh... it was so slow. I have stayed away from teflon-based cookware for health concerns but the rice cooker was the last thing I had yet to get rid of. And I noticed the teflon was flaking off the pot, so I knew I had to get rid of it soon.

I bought the Miracle rice cooker from Amazon and got free shipping. The pot of this cooker is of course stainless steel and it's nicely polished. But the thing that really suprised me was how FAST it cookes white rice. I've never seen a rice cooker cook so fast. And it cookes rice very well, despite the fact that I don't always add the same proportion of water to the dry rice. Many Asians "eye-ball" the water level and despite the variance of rice-to-water proportion, this rice cooker cooks rice on the moist and tender side - the preferred texture that most Asians like. I cook brown rice once in a while and will update this review once I get a chance to cook it a few times.
There are some negatives. One is that there is no brown rice setting. The instruction booklet states you can cook brown rice but you just let the rice cooker stay in the warm mode for 15 minutes to fuly cook brown rice. The warm mode kicks in after the normal cook time is done. Another negative I can think of is the cooker looks homely, plain, and old-fashioned. It would have been nice if the exterior was better designed and more modern-looking, perhaps with a stainless steel finish as well. And the last negative is the price. Other than the stainless steel pot itself, the materials, design and workmanship is not different than some no-name rice cooker so I don't understand the high price.
