This cooker comes in a cube box with a lot of helpful information around it, claiming that it can cook from 2 to 8 cups of rice, and cook all sorts of other things like vegetable, soup, and more. From my experience of cooking rice for myself, prepping for 1 cup of rice seems to be okay too. You can open the lid of the rice cooker by pressing the button attached on the handle, and there’s more parts like the white plastic tray with holes that you can use to steam vegetables and a measuring cup to scoop out the right amount of rice. Apparently the vegetable tray is BPA free so it won’t be harmful, sweet.
To make rice, I put a cup of raw rice into the bowl using the measuring cup first. Then I poured water, rinsed it enough to clean rice, and put fresh water up to the water level written inside the bowl. Then I simply put the bowl into the rice cooker, closed the lid, turned it on, and pressed “White Rice” button (Other available buttons are Brown Rice, Steam, and Keep Warm.) You can also press on the Delay Timer to schedule your meal for up to 15 hours. This feature was handy when I set it in the morning, went to work, and came back to find this cooker finishing up cooking my rice.
After those few steps, you just need to wait. For one cup of rice, it seemed to take about 20 minutes or so, and longer for additional amount of rice. While at first, the digital indicator won’t show anything, it gives you a countdown starting towards the end. From usually eating one serving size, it would show up around last 12 minutes until it’s done. Once it’s done, the rice cooker will start beeping out loud a few times. At first, I thought it was my smoke alarm but ha, it’ll definitely get your attention that the rice is done! I’d recommend putting additional water if you won’t be eating right away and plan to keep it warmed up longer, but this good looking rice cooker can make some tasty rice.
I remember using cheaper rice cookers with lids that would splash hot water drops, and this Aroma Digital Rice Cooker and Food Steamer is so much better. I should’ve bought this at first before trying out cheaper alternatives. I’ve been eating rice for a few decades now and I know this rice cooker makes some delicious rice that’s not undercooked or burnt. This smaller version I use is for up to 8 cups but you can also get a 20 cup one if needed. You scoop rice, pour into the bowl, rinse, add enough water, press the button, wait, and eat. I’m sure even a caveman could do it!
+ So easy and can’t go wrong
+ Can also steam and cook food other than rice
+ Lid stays closed, no water splashes
+ Delay timer up to 15 hours
+ Stays on “Keep Warm” mode automatically after finishing
– Beeps are a bit loud for my little apartment but it may be good for you
– Having an actual clock like many microwaves would be nice

There's a little bit of learning to do at first. I use more water with brown rice, more like 1.5 water to one brown rice. And some rice is drier than other rices, and need more water. I find that you can have a little more water, but you don't want to have too little, because the rice will be less than fully prepared. For instance, I forgot about the little measuring cup and absentmindedly used a full one cup measure but added water to the line for two gou. I got slightly underdone rice.
Remember that the cooker knows when the water has been absorbed. Rice cookers work because, so long as there is free water in the pot, the temperature cannot rise above 212F (at sea level). So all the pot need do is stop cooking and reduce temperature to warm when the pot temperature rises about 212F. That's why it works for all grains. And that means the cooker doesn't really know when the rice is done, only when the water is gone.
Now, you will see all sorts of different ratios recommended by rice cooker recipes and for different cookers. Lots of people use 1.5:1 for white rice. Quinoa is happier with a 2:1 ratio. Anything reasonably close will work, so long as you use enough water for the grain to be fully cooked when the water is gone. If you use a little more water than you needed, it will go on cooking until absorbed. The worst that will happen is that it might get a little softer than you'd like. And you can even fix it when you open the pot and find it isn't quite done. Just add a bit more water and start the cycle again. The cooker will still know when that water is absorbed. That's the lovely thing about a rice cooker. It can sort of peak under the lid for you, plus it doesn't have to be watched.
I throw a single cup of rice and a little less than 1- 1/4 c water in it, no rinsing, and it makes perfect rice. Nothing spewed, and it had just a small amount of brown on the bottom. Even my old rice cooker didn't make rice this well (I'd have to wait about 10 minutes after it was done for it to steam off, otherwise the rice would be too wet on top.)
It has a minute timer that goes on when there is 12 minutes left to go, which is real handy when you're timing other items on the stove. It beeps when it's done, which is also super handy.
The first one I ordered from Amazon arrived with a big dent left of the panel, but Amazon has a good exchange policy for this item, so the replacement arrived within a few days.
This is an appliance I'll be using several times a week. If it dies an early death, I'll edit this review.
Edit: Yes, it has a problem. The brown rice cycle no longer works: it barely heats the water. The warranty on the cooker is a 1 year warranty, but it's also annoying because you have to pay to ship it both ways (you have to prepay Aroma $14 to ship it back to you.)
