Product Description

The VitaClay Rice and Slow Cooker Pro delivers the flavors you have always yearned for in a rice cooker. It’s easy to use and works well with hundreds of tasty rice and slow cooker recipes…and it’s healthy!

The secret is in the centuries-old, slow-cooking organic clay pot, combined with computerized temperature control, fused to bring out the textures and flavors that will please the health-conscious first-timer or pro. The slow cooker is just right for vegetarian, vegan, and health-conscious living.

The award-winning VitaClay cooks with mineral-rich, organic pure clay to enhance flavor and preserve natural juices. The slightly porous clay is unglazed, allowing it to breathe during the cooking process, retaining moisture and essential nutrients. It is free of toxic metals and synthetic non-stick glazes. The Rice and Slow Cooker Pro is totally convenient and fully programmable, thanks to the computerized clay-heating technology. The all-natural clay cooking bowl rests on a cupped heating pad, which promotes uniform cooking. Pre-programmed settings include regular rice, brown rice, stew, and soup. It also has an automatic Keep-warm feature for up to 12 hours. When it comes to slow cooking, it brings the contents up to boiling temperature two times faster than a conventional slow cooker – this process seals in the flavor and maintains the texture. It’s like having an automatic gourmet chef right in your kitchen!

Great for preparing fluffy brown rice, white rice, sticky rice, and meals such as tasty soups, savory stews, bean pots, porridges, pasta dishes, appetizers and more. Perfect for busy professionals and families who want the healthy nourishment of a home-cooked meal on the go!

Customer service is our highest priority. Please visit the VitaClay website and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Well worth the bit of extra cost.

Something about this clay pot makes the rice taste better than the rice cooked in a usual rice cooker.

I had trouble cooking my rice since this is my first time using a clay rice cooker. Instructions on the packet of rice was not quite accurate and my rice didn't cook. Called customer service and I must say they provide excellent support thru tel and email. Cleaning the pot is a breeze.
Update: I found that my cooker is faulty. Took more than a month to get it back and i had to pay for shipping it to them. I was told that it would take only a week to troubleshoot but it did not happened. I had to contact them several times to "hound" them for my cooker. now it takes close to an hour to cook 4 cups of rice. Buyer Beware. It was 5 star rating in the beginning; now it is no star...jut that i am unable to edit the stars.

PROs:
- easy to clean and use
- both brown and white rice are cooked perfectly.
- overall design and look is sleek
- rice retains its taste and texture even after a few days

CONs:
- size, occupies to much space
- `rice cooking` indicator light stopped working after 2 weeks
- cooking time is a little bit longer than regular rice cookers
- claypot should be handled with care as it might break

Overall I would recommend this product for its health benefits and quality of cooked rice.

I bought the Vitaclay 8 months ago after extensive research. I so wanted to love this rice cooker but it just wasn't in the cards! I wanted a rice cooker that wasn't coated in Teflon and I loved the idea of the clay pot so there was no hesitation about spending $100 on a rice cooker. I used it about 50 times but had to discontinue using it because mold is growing in the clay and I can't get rid of it. I've tried everything and now the mold is growing inside the machine. I take care of my kitchen appliances and take great care in thoroughly cleaning and drying them when I'm finished using them so I doubt the mold is a result of misuse or improper care. I had to remove it from my kitchen because it stinks of mildew.

I also wasn't terribly impressed with the quality of the rice it produces. It's pretty inconsistent - sometimes it's mushy and sometimes it's hard. My $10 Rival does a better job.

Our "no-stick" aluminum rice cooker finally gave up the ghost, and we ordered the VitaClay. I love it! It is absolutely easy to use and it has no bits of no-stick stuff coming off on the rice. It makes absolutely gorgeous rice. People say it takes a bit more care not to crack the cooker when cleaning or removing rice, but I have had no problems with it. Well worth the bit of extra cost.

We loved this rice cooker, though the clock never kept time accurately and had to be reset every few weeks. Perfect brown rice and lentils every time with no teflon exposure--BUT after about 15 months it died without as much as an error message. The clock still received power, but the cooker wouldn't turn on. I called the distributor Essenergy, Inc.(who by the way doesn't answer its toll free number) to learn that it was not economical to repair an out of warranty cooker and I was advised to buy a new one. At least the company representative in commiserating with me, said I would have a spare clay pot! You know, we paid about $160 for this item which was "hot" when we bought it. For this amount of money, I would expect a bit more than 15 months of use. This is not a very sophisticated device and if it were not for the attraction of the unglazed clay pot, it would not be much different than the $25 cookers available at Target or Walmart. At this price it should be backed better.

The nice thing of this cooker is that it combines two functions in one as both rice cooker and slow cooker. I made very nice soup with its slow cooking function. I just need to set up the time for slow cooking, and leave the rest to itself. At first, I was concerned the liquid would run out, but it didn't. As long as you follow the instructions to put water no more than 3/4 of the container, it is fine!
Thanks to the purple-clay material, it keeps the food inside much warmer in longer time comparing to other kind of rice cookers or slow cookers. I don't even need to use its Warm function at all, which in turn saves energy in one way. I believe I'm going to use this cooker a lot more than my previous rice cooker.

I bought this cooker and keep using it daily. It is a good cooker but has problem on the clock. It never has the right time even you correct it frequently. The big problem and risk - after using it around 6 months E1 error code comes out on every use. As per the instruction manual that is internal and need to call for assistance. I email and call to the warranty center in CA but not get any prompt reply. Finally talked to them and told me that may be too much water added. I do what they has told me and same error pop up every time. Again I inform them but so far no reply. I also find out this cooker doesn't has an UL listed or approval. Is this safe to use?

I love this thing. I have a small raw food restaurant in the East Village in NYC, and I have recently added cooked food items on our menu for the winter season, like butternut squash soup, miso vegetable stew and different pilaf dishes. Since there is not a single stove or oven in the kitchen, this little clay pot cooks everything for us. Not only is it easy and convenient to use, the food seems to taste better than a regular cook pot, may be it is the clay that enriched the flavors. Most importantly my customers are raving about the cooked food dishes :-)
The reason why I did not give this a 5-stars is because the plug is very loose in the cooker's socket, if it was accidentally bumped by someone, the power goes off even though the plug is still in the socket, I have to juggle the plug to get the power back and then re-program the cook time again. If this happens in the middle of cooking, I have to quickly get the power back before it lost its very short-term memory. If the power is lost for a while and the memory got lost, then I have to guess how much more time it needs to cook, that can be pretty tough to guess and it might ruin the dish if I did not guess correctly.
