Have never seen the point of these compared to cooking rice in a conventional pan. Might have to "borrow" one from Argos for a try if anyone can convince me that these devices are worthy of a space in the kitchen cupboard.

A rice cooker cooks perfect rice every time. :thumbsup: This one includes a timer so you can set it to cook the rice ready for you when you get home. Also, they make perfect congee without the need to keep an eye on over boiling pan. Pity there's no Netto near me as I would get one myself!

I bought one of these from the last deal posted . . . .

Will say - I'm probably going to ebay it (wish I could have returned it).

The rice it makes (using basmalti) is stodgy and sticky. The first batch I made was just a "mush" no individual bits at all. The next batch I used less than the recommended water. . . . similar result.

So far I've made 4 batches of rice in it and thrown all away (did 3 tests and one for a meal - had to make the last one manually).

Now - not sure if this is just a one off - but for me rice shouldn't be a stodgy mess. Although I do understand some prefer it this way.

Just my thoughts . . . . I am going to get the wife to try it as well - just incase it is me being dumb some how :(

I just heard that the parent company of Royal Doulton... Waterford??... just went into administration!

So a word of warning that the manufacturer's warranty might not be valid anymore if the company stops trading as a going concern.

I received one of these 4 or 5 Christmases ago. I don't think they've changed the design since then. Anyway, I never thought I would have much use for it. It's been used several times a week for the last few years and is still going strong! Very easy to use and easy to clean. Put the rice and water in and press the button marked rice. That's it. I would definitely recommend it.

I can fully understand why people might think that this is a bit of a 'niche' cookery item but if you eat a lot of rice - buy one. They produce good results and are a lot easier to use and clean than a pan on the stove top - plus you can keep the rice warm until the rest of your meal is ready. Can't speak for the one in this offer specifically but we've had a Panasonic one for about 20 years and it's pretty essential in our kitchen. We have a newer one put away ready for when this one eventually gives up on us.

Just bought the argos one and intend to try basmati tonight. Worked well with brown rice though. I read that in order to seperate grains you have to thoroughly wash basmati to remove as much starch as possible (ie wash the rice and let the water run clear before your pop iti n the pot. - hope this helps before you ebay it.

Will give it another try today - did rinse the rice before. . . perhaps not enough though.

The rule of thumb is to use one cup of water to one cup of rice. This should give very good results unless you are only cooking a small amount of rice, in which case you may need to add a little more water. The cooker should give good results with many varieties of rice, but as a standard, you may want to test with Jasmine (best) or just Long Grain rice. The resulting rice would be the same as any Chinese or Thai restaurant as they use oversized versions of these cookers in their kitchens.

If the rice is stodgy, then you are definitely adding too much water. Try the above guideline and make sure you set the cooker to 'rice cook' mode and not any other mode such as 'congee', 'keep warm' or 'slow cook'.

Well just did some more basmalti - and was pretty much same as before. Water wise - when making my pilau rice in a pan (with spice etc) it is basically dbl water floz against rice (oz). Comes out absolutely perfect everytime.

Trying now with long grain and will see how that turns out.

Definitely got the right settings (ie rice).

Less water is needed in a rice cooker so try with 1:1 rice to water by volume first.
#15
got mine today, and made some rice 2nite. very easy to use, 4 cups of rice, 5 cups of water, press the quick cook button - job done, perfect individual grains of rice !! recommended.

Went to Huddersfield Nettos today and couldn't find this. We asked a couple of people who work there and couldn't find it, they said it was coming in on Thurday but when we lloked at the leaflet it is a cheaper looking one for £9.99. Is this on an older offer leaflet?

Cheers. :)
