Only caveats ive learned is that
a) you cant cook 3 cups of "real" basmati type rice without it reaching lid. I turned the steamer upside down and put lid on that as temporary measure. Rice came out just fine, but you cant easily stir it after it goes to warm mode to fluff it up while it cools down/cooks more because its reached the top of pot.
b) you must absolutely rinse out the rice a couple times so the water is near clear so you dont get all that froth. (guess all the complaining about spilling is about that. i cheated once and didnt rinse... ofcourse it says this in manual.
Cooks rice great, easy to clean, looks very nice and its tiny.
Also, Aroma sells replacement parts unlike other manufactures. (including the non-stick inner pot) ( $6 each, i already ordered two to put in storage for when i drop/scratch them)
On a quest to 1) make healthier dinner choices and 2) find a use for the vegetables that I use for my work lunches before they spoil, I decided to come back to the original rice cooker that I didn't bother tackling before. This time, I chose a different color because white was less expensive than any other color -- which is always great to remember to double-check when you're purchasing on Amazon. At $17, compared to what they sell for in local stores (roughly around $23 at time of writing this), I felt like it was a good deal.
For the beginner to rice cookers, you should always remember that you should take every opportunity to "spice things up a bit" -- that is, go wild with your spices that you add to your water! While it may be silly, I didn't even really think about this -- I had this vision of "vegetables and white rice" in my mind when I saw my rice cooker before. Not true! You can change the spices up so many ways to have very different tasting dishes. You can also add a chicken bouillon cube for extra flavor -- just make sure to stir your rice very well after you've finished cooking!
In regards to steaming vegetables, I often throw an array of vegetables together -- leftover onion, asparagus, cabbage, etc. I also use frozen vegetables. Yes, frozen! I rinse them with hot water under the faucet in a strainer, drain, and transfer to my steaming plate. I've found that they taste just fine in a hurry and, quite honestly, it's a great way to save on grocery costs, too. I would suggest trying it out! I personally like to salt and pepper my vegetables before I put the lid on top, since it will fall down into the rice during the steaming process. Always remember to line the hands up with your rice cooker and steamer, since it helps ensure no "loose" spots where steam can escape. I always add my vegetables a little over halfway through the cooking process -- I've found that the directions that Aroma provided (while quite awesome and I reference them frequently for cooking times -- a really great instructional pamphlet!) to be a little too long to steam vegetables. Trial and error. You will find your preference. I've haven't tried to steam meat yet -- that may be an adventure down the road...
In regards to cooking brown rice, remember that brown rice has a different texture than white rice if you've never had it before. It's a tiny bit chewier. The directions in Aroma's pamphlet that reference the water lines ONLY refer to white rice -- but they have included directions for brown rice. I always use the provided measuring cup to measure -- never continental measuring cups because I've always figured that they've done all the work for me in figuring out what is most suitable. I usually do have to cook it more on the longer end of the spectrum when it references times in the booklet.
Basically -- if you're thinking about getting a rice cooker, I would recommend this one! It's not too advanced and it's fun to play around with, particularly for a person who lives alone or in a relationship. I think you may need a larger rice cooker if you're looking for something for a larger family. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I look forward to trying to make non-rice items, too, like soups... :)
It is also a very simple cooker. It comes with a steamer to steam foods.
