I use it practically every day for one thing or another and like the nice 8 cup size. I make brown rice, wild rice, lentil soup, pea soup, steel cut oatmeal, quinoa, barley and other whole grains. Everything seems to come out perfectly and clean-up is easy. I usually set the bowl in the sink with some warm water in it for about 10 minutes and then just sponge out any remaining residue.
Two thumbs up for this great rice/grain/other stuff cooker!

Everything seems to come out perfectly and clean-up is easy. I usually set the bowl in the sink with some warm water in it for about 10 minutes and then just sponge out any remaining residue. It's also comes with a steamer basket which lets you perfectly steam your vegetables. This came in really handy around the holidays when I was running out of burners on the stove and trying to get the meal on the table at all once.
I'm terrible about measuring things and I usually just add my grains to the pot and kind of "eyeball" how much water I need. (Do you do that too?) I've probably used this close to a hundred times already and still haven't burned anything or had anything stick to the bottom of the pot that won't come out easily after 10 minutes of soaking. That in itself is a huge thing for me. I don't know if the stainless steel cooks things more evenly or what, but I was always having things burned or sticking to the old aluminum cooker.
Two thumbs up for this great rice/grain/other stuff cooker!
Update 5/29/15 - We are still using this rice cooker several times per week and it still works perfectly. It's our most used kitchen appliance! Lately we've been making a lot of quinoa and barley in it. On the weekend I will make sushi rice.
It is now November, and I'm writing this review to remind myself when the quality of this product began to degrade.
I noticed maybe two months ago that the lid's handle was poorly constructed or made out of cheap materials. It was loose and wobbly, so I inspected the screw at the bottom of the lid and decided it needed to be tightened. It began to peel as if it were coated in a silver paint, and I'm pretty sure it is made out of some kind of plastic or glazed aluminum. Aluminum contamination in your food is just as bad as teflon, and I'm sure we're all here because we wanted a teflon-free cooking device. When I clean the lid it also gets water trapped underneath the handle because I can't seem to tighten the damn screw well enough.
The stainless steel insert has held up and was once a beautiful, mirror polished pot. It's now slightly warped (inside) and has what I call water stains/spots all over it that I can't seem to get rid of. However, I am glad that it hasn't rusted, even despite being slightly scratched.
I have no idea what to say about the steaming lid insert. I use it to cook fish. It feels thin and flimsy, but the company has told me that it is indeed stainless steel.
The heating disk has brown spots all over it. They began to slowly appear one by one, after each use. I'm not sure how to avoid them or what advice I could give you. It may just be a normal occurrence.
It has been a wonderful device for what it is designed to do. It steams food. It cooks rice. I refuse to use a microwave, so this has been my go-to for when the food I eat actually has to be cooked (I try to eat mostly raw foods.) I haven't required anything else for my cooking needs. I used it 1-3 times a week, but I've limited the amount of rice that I eat and mostly use it to cook fish now.
It says to use oil when cooking rice or it will stick to the bottom. This is true; sometimes I don't use enough oil and it still sticks. It has a nifty function where it automatically turns to the 'warm' temp when it doesn't detect moisture anymore. It might save your food if you forget about it for too long.
The small hole in the lid lets out steam, maintains heat and prevents your water from boiling over. If you decide to cook something like oats in it, do not use the lid at all. It will boil over. There's a plastic ring (vent grommet) inside the hole of the lid when you unbox your cooker. Remove that! You don't need it; it works fine without it. Put it aside and save it just incase you notice a difference in quality without it.
I give this product a 3 and a half or 4. I love what it does and I love how it is just a stainless steel pot with a glass lid, but the cheap lid handle and screw really make me mad and prevent me from giving it a 5 star rating. It is still the only rice cooker I could find that met my no-plastic and no-teflon standards. In the future I will try out bamboo steamers, but I wouldn't hesitate to try other Miracle products. There's lots of cool stuff on their website that I would like to buy.
I might e-mail the company to find out what the heck that screw is made out of. I'll let you know when I get a reply.
The screw is made out of aluminum. I will try to find a stainless steel replacement for it.
"This is a metric size screw.
The thread size is M6.
A good quality hardware store should be able to supply this item."
Miracle has amazing customer service and if you have any problems I'd recommend e-mailing them. They took care of me and I'm satisfied with my rice cooker now.
When I was removing the old aluminum screw and replaced it with a stainless steel one, the screw had rusted and was very difficult to remove. Do it outside -- I got lots of glittery aluminum shavings all over the place when I did this. You might even see water leak out of the knob of the lid when you do this.
I'll go ahead and up my rating to 5 stars (from 4) due to their customer service but remember to change the screw. It's really the only downside to this product unless you NEED an oatmeal/porridge setting or other low heat and simmer options.
