5.0 out of 5 stars Great basic rice cooker, January 5, 2006
This review is from: Panasonic SR-G06FG Automatic 3.3 Cup (Uncooked) Rice Cooker (Silver) (Kitchen)
This is a really great, basic rice cooker. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of the more expensive rice cookers (no warming feature, no different settings, etc.), but it works well for cooking rice, it's compact, and reasonably priced. Prior to buying this one, we had another basic model made by another company that broke. We replaced with an identical one, and it broke as well. After going through two rice cookers, we decided to pay $5 more to get a different brand- this Panasonic. We have had no problems with it, and we also like the non-stick pot. With our old rice cooker, the rice would stick to the bottom of the pot, so we couldn't eat all of it. The Panasonic doesn't have this problem, so we can make smaller quantities of rice without wasting most of it. I have made white rice, brown rice, and quinoa in the rice cooker, and all have turned out well.

Update: July 2013- still going strong, although the non-stick coating is starting to show its age.

What brand was the one that didn't work for you?

I can't remember!! If I could, I would definitely warn you away from it.

I thought the instructions say not to make brown rice in it? It seems that everyone that owns one of these Panasonic rice cookers makes brown rice although the instructions say differently.

I am not sure if we have our manual to check, but I have made brown rice in ours a lot and never had a problem.
