Fantastic rice cooker. They go under £10 every now and then.

You can also steam veggies in there too like broccoli I used to make my babies meals from fresh in there. Just pop it in until its done and whizz it in a blender

Not long till the rice experts give there opinion....

Have one, use it twice weekly or so, perfect results every time.

Would this be good for pasta too?

Brilliant little machine, worth every penny

I've had one of these for the past 8 years. It's great and yes I do use it for pasta sometimes but it takes longer than using a hob.

What is the advantage over booking rice in a pan?

What is the advantage over booking rice in a pan?



Its really down to personal choice, I like this as when its cooked it goes into keep warm mode and you dish up when your ready, if you done that on a hob, it would most likely stick and/or burn.

Boil kettle. Put one cupful of rice into a pan, fry in butter if wanted for a few seconds. Pour two cupfuls of boiling water onto rice, quick stir. Put onto lowest gas for 10 minutes & walla done. What ever measure you use it's one of rice & two of boiling water & 10 minutes simmer.

Paid £9.99 when it was supposedly reduced from £20

These things are class they will revolutionise your life

Very rice deal, thanks OP.

Not if you don't eat rice

Great rice cooker, used for years no problems. Does splutter a little rice water out the vent in the lid, but its so minor. Its also great for chinese hotpot.

Got one a few years ago, really good & I use mine as a slow cooker too.

There's a knock at the door. It's the new next door neighbour. You invite her in and start sharing a bottle of wine. One thing leads to another and then ...

The smoke alarm goes off. Bummer, the rice is burnt.

ordered one thanks.

Brought one yesterday for my daughter who's at university as I have the crock pot one but burns at bottom all time so read reviews and seemed all good

Thank you for posting , ordered 3 pay for 2, excellent deal.

Good Price but very poor quality. Non stick coating is just ordinary paint which peels off after some use. Better buy tefal or some decent bland which will last and not peel off paint in food.

We got one of these when we got married 17 years ago - best thing we got, still use it today and comes out with perfect boiled rice

ye ha under sink I go

great investment

these are fab!

I've had one of these for a few years now and use it a lot. Cooking rice in a saucepan can be hit and miss, but this is foolproof. Measure in the rice, measure in the water (comes with cup), switch on and let it do the work. It weighs how much rice/water you've put in and knows how long to cook it for, then switches to a 'keep warm' feature afterwards. Rice always turns out perfectly.

Swings & roundabouts.

Rice Cooker method ;

use supplied measure cup to desired qty of rice (I normally rinse in a sieve under a cold tap)

fill with cold water up to line on cooker

switch on

10 mins or so, walla, done.



Biggest benefit I find is whilst entertaining, 10 mins and rice is done, but still piping hot 20 mins later if you have, ahem, larger guests who want a second portion
