have to agree, we started to use the microwave method, micro for 8 mins leave for 4 and perfect rice and no worries about the pan boiling over when it comes to the boil. This thing is like pancake, mix and frozen yorkshire puds and even cake mix its easy to do it so why waste the money.

Not that its tricky to make rice, but the easy of leaving rice on the fire before gooing out and coming back 9 hours later to your ready made rice... and trust me this dosent take long at all.

Thought the point of this post was to alert people that wanted to purchase something of a good deal so why vote cold - it's got good reviews for what it is?

It's not quite like pancake mix & frozen yorkshire puds is it? They are processed foods (both of which we wouldn't buy) ...................

Why have a toaster if you can use the grill?
Why have an electric kettle if you can boil water in a pan?
Why have a slow cooker if you have a cooker?
Or, if we are going to be silly, why have a car if you have legs?

Am I reading this right... you go off, and leave rice for 9 hours?
Is is soaking in the water, or left dry in a basket?

The reason I ask is leaving rice wet for this long could be a recipe(!) for B. cereus food poisoning!

I must admit, I have never seen the point of a rice cooker either - I was rather under the impression they were initially developed for Asian kitchens which did not have full cookers like we have, just gas burners; and they provided an extra place to cook, without taking up the main burner.

Yes you are reading this correctly , have you ever heard of anything called a slow cooker?

Yes, I have!
It it a device that ALSO has the potential for problems too, but not just the same one!
With a slow cooker, dependant on type, and it's power rating, some foods should NEVER be put in & cooked from cold, as they never reach a high enough temperature to get to a safe heat. They should be brought to the boil FIRST or cooked on a high setting, then cooking continued at low setting in the slow cooker. Other cookers are powerful enough to get hot enough early on, then drop to a lower temperature for the est of cooking without this precaution.

Rice has a particular problem with Bacillus cereus though, which is a spore forming bacteria, and keeping it for long periods where this bug could germinate then grow is something that could happen using a cooking method that does this. If it is kept dry until cooking starts, then that would not be a problem.

weve had this for a while now and its a good slow cooker, only really big enough though for two people (which is why it appealed to us). Think we paid around this price in a John Lewis promotion. It seems to heat things up quickly then cook for a long period on low heat. We regulary use it with raw meet and its always cooked well through.
It does have a habit now and then though of switching to keep warm half way through cooking for some reason which is irratating? Its out of warranty which is a pain but on the whole a good machine.
When it finally gives up the ghost I think we'll replace it with something else, maybe more simple as every time weve used it for slow cooking its been the full 9 hours so a simple one with high or medium on off switch would do the job, probably for half the price. Never as yet used it for rice though lol, easier to boil a pan or stick a tilda in the microwave :oops:.

Havent voted either way.
#11
Not voting, but don't think you need to spend £50 for a rice cooker. We bought a Tefal one for about £30 two years ago and it's still going strong.

Anyone from a Chinese/Eastern origin will know a rice cooker allows you to cook rice without the worry of:

1. Draining (Just add water so it is 1.5" above the washed rice) and all the water will boil away leaving fresh ready to eat rice.
2. Boiling Over (safety with kids especially).
3. Keeping the Rice Warm. Ready to Serve.

Also Great for Steaming Fish & Veg in a Bowl above the rice.

If it's a Slow Cooker too that's a bonus! :thumbsup:

Hot from me!
#13
I have it, I like it - effortless for rice cooking, does the slow-cooking thing (never tried it), and it's also great for steaming too (comes with a special tray). Apparently does porridge and rice pudding if you're into that...

Check you have somewhere you can put it where there is no cupboard above or sufficient room to open lid fully or you will find you can't open the lid fully to remove basket without pulling the whole unit forward. It's not exactly a small appliance you'de want to drag around your kitchen work surface.
