And according to Amazon, "The Sistema rice cooker is a 4 part cooking system which cooks rice, ploenta and cous cous perfectly", so great for all you dyslexics out there.

I have a similar one and rice comes out really nice. However it takes about the same time as using a normal rice cooker.

11.49 now :(

Still 6.75 from Amazon but you may have to wait a couple of weeks for delivery

Thanks, ordered. :)

I have one and i have to admit my expectations were a rubbish cheap made product. But a year on its used everytime I want to do rice. Generally it works well and does what it says although I have noticed some of the parts stain quite easy etc, but i guess you get what you pay for. think i'll get another 2 years out of it and for £6 thats not bad

Don't you mean a pontoon? And you won't believe the mess I got in over a tempura mattress. Got up in the morning feeling like I'd been battered.

Still available for £6.75 from Amazon (see other sellers - bottom right). Just a 1-3 week dispatch time.

Got mine on Sunday - love it! Once you experiment a bit with your microwave (mine takes 15 mins for about 200g) then it's fantastic, I'll never do my rice any other way. I wouldn't care if it was 15 of 20 quid - I'd still buy one. It's also mega-easy to clean after you've used it.

Just want to experiment a bit with a few different flavours, though most of my 'flavours' have been added after the rice has been cooked so I don't have any staining. BTW, it's still 7.99 at John Lewis.

I use a mains powered rice cooker. It must be 30 years old now but I wouldn't have rice cooked any other way. There is no microchip in it but it always seems to 'know' when to finish cooking and done to perfection every time.
#20
I've had one of these from Amazon for 8 years now, so can't fault it's longevity. Probably does exactly the same job.

Bought very similar one after seeing one being used at a cookery demonstration at Denby Pottery visitors centre. One of best kitchen gadgets ever bought - use few times a week. For two of us a cup of rice, two cups of water, 10 minutes in microwave - leave to stand. Perfect rice everytime!
#22
This seems a better option - £11.99 for an electric one with great reviews

Have quite a few sistema products and choose them as they are all BPA Free.
They are all very well made and I would recommend them.
#24
Yea sistema stuff is good but surely this is horribly inefficient. 20 mins @ 900w just to cook rice? Also health concerns of leaky microwaves/ microwaving plastic, and the noise. Mains FTW.
#25
tried lots of ways to cook rice inc rice cookers & microwave and have found the best most reliable way was using my pressure cooker, 7 minutes under pressure then 5 or 6 waiting for the pressure to go down and it gives me perfect rice each time.

I personally wouldn't recommend that one - we've had a couple and although it is dirt cheap and works really well the big problem was the grey painted coating on the metal pan flakes off after a little while, so you start getting,tasty little bits of paint in with your rice. When this first happened we exchanged it for a new one at Argos and exactly the same thing happened again after a few months so it does seem to be a design flaw rather than us getting unlucky first time around. I removed most of the remaining coating by scrubbing it away leaving the metal exposed, but the the base part stopped working completely a few months later. We were using it a fair bit (maybe 3 times a week) so maybe it's more suited for occasional use but I'd certainly recommend spending a little more on a better brand if you anticipate using it frequently.

A microwave safe medium glass bowl and cling film or a microwave safe plate to cover the bowl will serve the same purpose.

Any advantage of this over a rice cooker?
I mean even the cheap rice cookers have auto switch off and/or keep warm plus you can cook a lot more rice in them.

Got one frm pound shop cheap looking but still going strong 6yrs on n perfect rice every time

I'd be careful about using cling film in the microwave, certain types of plastics leaching into foods and all that.

I was thinking the same re inefficiency. Don't forget the displayed wattage of a microwave is the output wattage. The input / consumption is usually about 50% more. Presumably the rice will be on full power so will be solidly using 1350w power for the whole 10 minutes. I expect cooking on a hob or electric rice cooker will be cheaper as it will be thermostatically controlled.
#33
Check Asda - may be cheaper there.
#34
Takes a few attempts to suss out water and microwave timings, but once you do you they're brilliant.
#35
For energy usage of typical things..... bit of a long read but:

http://physics.ucsd.edu/do-the-math/2012/05/burning-desire-for-efficiency/

Microwaves are ~40% efficient at heating water, not as good as kettles (u to 70% if not overfilled), but better than stove hobs.
Stoves may be efficient on costs if you use gas, but microwave will beat an electric hob.
No idea about rice cookers, presumably the best way to cook rice (but everyone has a microwave already!).
