The first thing I used it for was brown basmati rice, which I have never been able to successfully cook on the stovetop. I couldn't have been happier with the result; it was cooked to perfection as was every other type of rice that I've made since then. Just use the cup provided to measure out the rice and then add water to the appropriate line shown inside the bowl and you can't go wrong. Even porridge and steelcut oats come out perfect every time.
For me, the drawback to crockery cooking has always been the need to brown meat in a seperate pan on the stovetop. However, the Sanyo slow cooking bowl is metal with a non-stick interior and has both a high and low setting for slow cooking. Therefore, you can start out using the high setting to brown the meat and then add the rest of your ingredients and switch to low for the rest of the cooking process. A beautiful thing!
So far this item is worth every penny I paid for it. I found the best price online at Bed, Bath & Beyond. Sweeter yet, because I placed my order in person at my local BB&B store, they even accepted my store coupon for 20% off!
Hats off to Sanyo for a great product all around!
As of 8 months ago, the nonstick coating on the rice cooker pot started coming loose. I thought nothing of it, because it was minor scratching. Over time, the nonstick started flaking off into the food, so I started to get nervous. I called the parts people, who informed me that the part is no longer there, and is discontinued. Funny how the rice cooker is still being sold at full price. In other words, after about two years, you'll start losing the nonstick, and you won't be able to replace it. In other words, this thing has lasted me all of three years flat, and I can't replace something that should be a relatively simple thing to replace.
What's worse is that Sanyo's customer service is nonexistent. I cannot find the numbers to call their customer service directly.
Things aren't being built like they used to be. I should have spent the tiny bit extra, and bought the Zojirushi. That's what I'll be doing next.
Thanks for the horrible customer service, Sanyo. I'll never be buying from you again.
Other annoyances: I make brown rice all the time. The cooker always defaults back to white rice, rather than remembering my last choice. It also takes an extra 30 minutes longer than rice should take. Brown rice takes close to 90 minutes, not 45, like I'm used to. White rice takes at least 45 minutes. Over time, the sensors must be going wonky, because in spite of my measuring perfectly each time, the cooker errs on the side of mushy.
The numbers on the inside are written in ink, and not stamped into the pot. This means that the numbers rubbed off. Where did they go? Into my food, clearly. I am very careful with my rice cooker, because it cost a fortune, and the thing is used literally every day.Read more ›
If you need a machine that can make a wide variety of slow cooked foods, as well as excellent rice, then I highly recommend this machine.
I've used a smaller and cheaper rice cooker for years and this is definately a big upgrade. The rice was an ideal texture and it stayed fresher longer when left in the cooker under the "keep warm" setting. No hard dried rice on the bottom and the rice kept up very well after 24 hours. The lid's steam vent keeps in more of the moisture so the rice doesn't dry out as quickly.
I also made slow cooker chili and it really turned out great too. I'm so glad I got a unit that takes the place of two appliances. I would definately recommend this if you're in the market for a NICE rice cooker and a slow cooker.
