I cooked with Aroma for over 15 years
on October 25, 2015
I have my old Aroma rice cooker for over 15 years, my older sister passed it down to me actually lol... and it is still in good working condition! But the pot inside is getting old and the breaker (person that breaks things) at my house, aka my husband just damaged the electric cord so it's time for a new rice cooker~~ We are both amazed with the quality of our old Aroma so we when we need a new rice cooker, we have our mind set on Aroma, no other brand.
20 cup is just the right size for us, we use it to make rice, vegetables, chicken, pork, etc. The new one has more functions, a delay timer, option for white and brown rice, saute, and keep warm. Comes with a scooper, a measuring cup, and a steamer tray. Everything is to my liking except two things. 1. The lid is NOT removable, making it hard to clean since we cook more than just rice. 2. The electrical cord is not retractable so when it's not in used, the cord will be dangling. We are comparing to our old one so we kind of expected these two features. Due to the non-removable lid, I will need to return it because I know we will not be able to keep it clean. But I am buying another Aroma, also the 20 cup, stainless steel with a glass lid. :) Doesn't have all the fancy functions, just a simple cook and warm button but that's what our old one has. Looking forward to it and I will be posting a review for that one when it arrives.
Hope you find my review helpful. :)
