5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DEVICE, December 12, 2009
This review is from: Sanyo ECJ-N55W 5-1/2-Cup (Uncooked) Electric Rice Cooker with Porridge/Soup Cooker and Steamer (Kitchen)
I'm Asian and this is a WONDERFUL LITTLE COOKER! Perfect size for a couple or occasional rice makers! Excellent value for the price!

Clean up is SUPER EASY IF YOU DON'T WAIT TOO LONG. If you use this machine properly, as per instruction manual and/or rice cooking directions, a once over with a wet sponge to the outer shell and under the lid will take 2 minutes. Soak non-stick rice pot as soon as possible.

I specifically purchased it to make JOOK... a traditional Cantonese "comfort food". It whipped it up SUPER quick: just under an hour.

In response to previous review: RECIPE PROPORTION- 1 CUP jasmine rice to 5 CUPS water with 1 teaspoon of salt, some ground or fresh ginger and a splash of sesame oil. You can add more water LATER if you like it thinner but BE WARNED... more than 5 cups of water when you first start will cause boil-over and that's a clean up misery! The typical consistency should be like oatmeal. The trick is to STIR occasionally because the water WILL separate once the mixture gets closer to being done. Every 15 minutes should suffice. I think that's why a previous review yielded a soggy rice bottom and liquid on top.

In response to review about Teflon flaking: DON'T USE METAL - EVER! The unit comes with a plastic ladle. Don't use Brillo or harsh scrub sponges to clean it - EVER!

In response to review about "OFF" switch: There is NONE. The cooker is designed to cook the rice/soup until its "Done"... and it mysteriously DOES! Then it goes into "Warmer" mode. The user manual instructs you to UNPLUG it when not in use. A bizarre design flaw but appliances should be unplugged when not in use anyway.

The only strange part about this cooker is the "Steamer" accessory. The lid is hinged it doesn't close with EITHER the Steamer or Soup lid attachment. If your kitchen isn't properly ventilated you may experience a considerable amount of heat and humidity using this option.

I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I got more as gifts.

Hi, R. Yan,

I am Cantonese and looking for a good, affordable, no nonsense rice cooker that also cooks "jook." I was especially glad to see your review. Would you please let me know how your rice cooker has held up after two years?

Thank you,
Nonny Nu
