I bought this rice cooker today form the Small Heath, Birmingham store. Reduced form around £16 to £7. Really looks very good out the box

I just used it and works a treat, and its non stick too

I think it must be all stores as it had a normal price-cut label.

Hope it helps someone.

These are excellent!
I wouldn't cook rice any other way now.

Try adding some Schwarz Pilau Rice Seasoning, very tasty.

TIP ; ensure rice is washed thoroughly (until water runs clear) before cooking.

Would also thoroughly recommend these as long as they have a non stick bowl (which this one does have, judging by the pic)!

Just cooked some rice, worked a treat. I can confirm its non-stick

Great thing to have if you like rice, perfect every time.

Does this use up much energy cooking rice as apposed to turning on the cooker and cooking it on the hob? Sorry if that sounds like a silly question, it's just that I monitor my energy usage.

How long does it take to cook the rice too...?

Thanks

Also, cheapest on Amazon - £16.50 so voted hot - thanks

Rice cookers FTW. Was using ours last night. Takes about the same time as cooking it on the hob - i.e. 20 minutes or so.

was there and got the slow cooker...kinda thinking of getting this one too since i'm using rice a lot.

One question , when you say 20mins, you mean that for the normal white/basmati rice, right?
I wonder if it'd be any different for my stubborn brown wholemeal...takes around 40mins on an elec. hob and want to know if there's any way around it.

Yes, 20 minutes is for Basmati rice. I haven't cooked Wholemeal rice in the rice cooker before, sorry.

these are fab,make much nicer rice than on the hob
what does everyone put on their rice? i only ever put gravy or butter, so need some ideas please

I don't get it! Get a pot, 1 cup rice to 1 and a half cups of water. If your cooking on an electric cooker bring it to a simmer, then turn the heat off and leave it with the lid on (making sure it doesn't boil over).

Perfect rice!

Yeah well all the numpty's on here don't have a clue do they so have to buy this which is in itself an overblown saucepan, you still have to do the same thing regardless of whether you use one of these or a saucepan and it still takes the same amount of time to cook..Shakes head!

Yeah and what if you are using all the rings on you hob or you are a student?
Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not good.

Totally agree with you there..! Im guessing you could prob keep it on a low heat too to keep the rice warm say if you were at a bbq or something maybe? or can you not do that?

is the deal nationwide?

is the deal nationwide?



Yes, all stores subject to availability.

Remember its only £7 much cheaper then a decent saucepan and when it stops cooking it goes on to the 'warm' setting so it will stay nice and hot.

Very easy to clean not like burnt rice on a saucepan... or when it over flows onto the hob/cooker...

Just saves the hassle.

I don't have room for it what with my potato boiler, egg boiler, soup heater-upper, egg-fryer, baked beans heater, spaghetti cooker, pasta shells cooker, mince and tatties maker etc.

bought one this afternoon with 5% discount having ued my asda credit cardat ASDA LIVING LEEDS. plenty left as of lunch time.

This is a real bargain and bought one to replace my old one.Easy way of rice cooking because you can't go wrong with one of these.

Great deal. Got one yesterday cooked Tilda basmati rice in it last night. Couldn't be easier.Rice was perfect, much better than I usually manage in a saucepan. A bargain for £7! Thanks OP.

How can it boil over if you've turned the heat off?!
