Being a native rice eater, and having cooked rice flawlessly on the stove-top for years, I have always been very dismissive of these automatic rice cookers because they never lived up to the hype. Every rice cooker I had tried would brown the bottom layer of my rice, and I would have to simply throw the bottom half an inch of cooked rice into the sink.
Well, turns out that I had been wasting time & money over the wrong type of rice cooker. A friend recommended that I buy a fuzzy logic cooker. The concept was appealing, but the two hundred dollar tag was the deal-breaker.
While searching for another kitchen item, I stumbled upon this Sanyo model which claimed to deliver the same fuzzy logic technology for about half the price of the leading brand. And bought it on a whim.
Boy, am I glad! I have nothing but praise for this machine. I have cooked white basmati rice, brown basmati, brown short grain, quinoa, steel-cut oats, and bulghur wheat. Very very pleased, and highly recommend it. Remember, you have to stick with their suggested water proportions.
It also has the Bake option which I haven't tried yet, but apparently, it is a premium feature found in the high-end models. Sweet.
Cleaning up is a breeze as the steam vent detaches neatly. Despite having a large capacity (20 cups of cooked rice), It doesn't take up much counter space either due to its tall, round design.
So, to anyone that's been avoiding the fuzzy logic cookers because they are overpriced: go grab this affordable winner to create your before and after rice moment.
Update on 9/1/2010:
Having used this rice cooker for over 6 months now, here are my additional observations:
- it could use a Bell or Ding at the end of the cooking cycle so I know if I want to turn it off or let it be warming.
--The power cord is not retractable (and, yes, I wash my hands after touching it due to the lead warning).
--The plastic steamer basket sits on the bottom of the cooking pot, rather than resting at the top--in other words, you can either cook rice OR steam something, not both at the same time with the provided steamer insert.
--There is a timer function rather than a clock. I find a clock more convenient because I can leave the "rice ready" time at, say, 6:30 a.m. and activate it when needed. With a timer, I have to count ahead to the "rice ready" time to see how many hours to set the timer--lazy, yes, I know, but my brain is tired last thing at night when I'm prepping it for the next morning!
These are minor inconveniences, given the VERY reasonable price for a fuzzy logic rice cooker (which, I noticed, has dropped $10 since I ordered it one week ago--grrr! But, that just makes it an even better deal!). No regrets here!
UPDATE: I've been using the rice cooker for almost 2 months now and am still very pleased. I did want to note that I've been adding just a wee bit more water when cooking white rice. I'd say I go just a little above the line/cups of rice I'm cooking because like anything that sits while warming, it's bound to dry out a tad. I also made mac & cheese in it many times and it's terrific. I found an easy recipe online and just adjusted it a little. I use the quick cook mode for 20 mins to cook the macaroni with chicken broth and/or water. Then when the 20 mins are up I add my 2 cups cheese and milk, S&P if using all water and no chix broth. Cook for another 20 mins and it's nice and gooey. Still loving my rice cooker!
WELL....all good things must come to an end. It's been about 3 yrs and the plastic button to open/close the lid broke!! I'm so bummed because I really liked this rice pot. I don't know if it'll still cook rice evenly but I'm going to try tonight and see how it turns out.
