Sturdy little cooker with a small footprint that cooks enough rice for one or two people.

The actual cooker is very lightweight, stores easily (it is small) and simple to use.

Fantastic. I don't know how I was living without this guy. Actually I do know -- I wasn't eating rice. I just made my first cup of rice (outstanding by the way) and I almost want to make another one just as an excuse to use it again. But I'm actually full so I won't.

The coolest bonus is the mini-rice scooper. It resembles an elongated spoon which could be used as a utensil to eat directly out of the pot if the user was so inclined. I would never do that though, nope. That is too barbaric for me. But doing so would minimize the number of dishes to wash afterwards if this is a big concern.

As a matter of fact, the rice pot is so small that clean-up is a cinch.

Now, I noticed from other reviews that people wanted a carrying-handle. I can see how this would be useful from a utilitarian standpoint but from a minimalistic perspective it would just add bulk to the product. Plus, I don't think Takeru-kun would be as cute with a handle as it would take away from his perfectly round head.

The product comes with a carrying bag so I figure it's a good compromise. Maybe people wanted a carrying handle on the cooker itself so they could carry it around in public and show it off. Yeah, come to think of it, the carrying bag should have been see-through.

My only regret is that I should have bought two more of these dudes.

With Takeru-kun the possibilities for your two-course meals extend as far as the instant food isle. Takeru with instant miso soup, Takeru and instant ramen, Takeru with instant curry... to name a few! Just add Takeru-kun!

Be the envy of your fellow friends, co-workers, family, and oversized rice cookers! Buy one today!

Bought this cooker for my 2-month work assignment to Moscow, Russia.

Used to prepare: Rice, soup, instant noodles, boiling water for tea

Pros:
Cooking time and quality is on-par with bigger, more expensive rice cookers in our household.
Removable cooking shell makes cleaning a breeze
Easy to transport due to compact size and lockable lid

Cons:
Runs only on 110-120V, should have made it dual voltage, like most modern electronics. Make sure to bring a transformer for 220V locations.

I have Celiac Sprue, which means I can't eat anything with wheat in it, so travelling can be very difficult. But this little rice cooker came in handy on my recent vacation. I was able to pack it in my luggage, and cook rice and other things that fit my dietary restrictions.

It worked perfectly and made great tasting rice. No complaints at all. It may be small, but it made plenty of rice for two people.

I would not only recommend this to the rice cooker aficionados but to those suffering from various food intolerances.

This extremely small rice cooker cooks rice very well due to air-tight lid (which makes a huge difference for cooking rice). I have not tried the veg. warmer yet but I managed to cook a vegetable soup in the cooker. I have to manually turn off the switch after 20-30 min. but it can cook a soup as well. It is really ideal for traveling. I think the designer of this kind of cooker should consider a handle to carry (no handle right now) and dual voltage capacity for traveling. These two points are to be improved for the future design. Price is in a slightly steep side for the size. But it is really worthwhile and I am having a good time with it.

One of the best rice cookers I've had but it lasted only three months. Just stopped working.
Used it only once or twice a week.

This is my first rice cooker. It meets all my expectations. I cook brown rice and result is always perfect. Now we can have fresh rice for 2 without feeling bad about waste. You can sqeeze a 3rd cup of rice if needed, Small and compact so doesn't take up valuable counter space. Tip: measurement of rice and water should be slightly smaller than package directions, a measuring cup is included to help. After 2 uses I didn't need the measuring cup.

This is my favorite personal rice cooker of all time, hands down. It cooks the perfect portions in less than 20 minutes. If you're on the fence about this one, don't be. Buy it, it's worth every penny. I have used it every day for about 10 months now and it still functions excellently.

I've been searching for a quality, smaller-sized rice cooker for a long time and was overjoyed to find this! I have purchased several of the little Black & Decker mini cookers, but they all quit working after only a few months. This little cooker blows them all away.

First, it's a mini-cooker... Designed to make only 1-2 servings of rice (about 3 cups cooked). If you need more rice, buy a bigger cooker. I love it because I'm single and can make myself fresh rice for dinner quickly and easily. This is a high quality cooker, made in Japan, with the same quality as the larger ZooJoruishi cookers. The operation is basic and simple, something I would expect from a mini-cooker - easy to use and uncomplicated.

The little guy is also designed to be portable. The power cord unplugs completely from the unit (I love that!), and the cooker comes with a compact lunch dish (which fits into the cooker for warming after the rice has finished), a compact set of chopsticks in a little carry case, a long-handled scoop, and a carry bag big enough to hold everything. It also comes with a mini-sized measuring cup for the raw rice.

If you're looking for a reliable little cooker, I highly recommend this cooker. It is well worth the higher cost. I will never get a cheap little $15 cooker again.
