I don't know why this product isn't readily available in retail stores. But as long as I can get a replacement on-line, I won't worry about ever being without my steamer!f
I've purchased many of these units for friends over the years and highly recommend them. What happened?
Wow is an understatement! There is no escaping the no brainer rice perfection. You fill the bottom compartment with water all the way to Max, place your rice container (with rice plus suggested water measurement) and then turn the thing on. It takes 60 mins to cook 2 cups of dried rice to result in 4 to 6 cups of cooked rice (depending on the variety you use). Brown rice takes 75 mins. The timer switch is an old-fashioned dial, but does its job and turns off faithfully at the end.
After that is all Rice Heaven. Basmati, sushi, brown, wild, - name it, turns out as it should. The amazing thing is, the cooking is even from top to bottom. No stirring needed.
A couple of caveats to be taken into account.
This is not suitable for making large quantities of rice. It is for fool-proof everyday cooking for a family of four to six, nothing can beat it.
You must immediately toss out that tiny flimsy plastic joke of a rice container that comes with it and get an appropriately shaped Pyrex glass bowl instead: http://www.amazon.com/World-Kitchen-pyrex-1072103-Pyrex-Tear/dp/B002IOFF88/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1287594896&sr=8-6. That is about the only extra effort/expense you will need with this product.

This appliance does an excellent job of steaming vegetables, rice, and chicken. We particularly use it often to steam chicken for quick and easy-to-make meals.Published 19 months ago by C. B.
This steamer is the most used appliance I have. Hard boiled eggs are perfect. Frozen fruits and vegetables, as well as fresh, are ready in a very short time.Published 21 months ago by SLee
