I was about to buy a cheap rice cooker from wilkinsons for £14 which is a good deal. However the wilkinsons one is a 700watt, higher capacity one and as I live on my own I don't really need the higher capacity and will end up wasting money on electricity.

Seems like a good deal. Can't find one on the highstreet cheaper than this. And seems to get very good reviews.

... Genuine godsend for those of us that often end up with a big pile of stodge where there should be rice :oops:

Quick question, roughly how many people would 1.5 litres serve?

The things are just so much easier and save time. To cook rice properly requires a couple of stages and it doesn't always come out right. Still probably a good idea removing some of the starch before using these.

Not sure but if you have a wilkinsons near you, the one from them is 1.8l for £14.

Here's a handy tip for you rice cookers out there!

I used to have a rice cooker, but now I use a microwave, and once you get the ratio of rice to water right, the rice comes out just as good as from a rice cooker!

I use 1 mug full of basmati rice (a normal sized coffee mug), and just over 1 and a half mugs of water.

Pop it all in a large bowl, and bung it in the microwave at 800W for about 18 minutes. Leave it to stand for 5 to 10 minutes, and then give it a stir and fluff with a fork. Job done! There's enough rice for 3 to4 people.


If you try it, you may have to experiment two or three times to get the right combination of water and cooking time, as it depends on the rice you use, and your own microwave.

Interesting tip.

I dunno why but I'd feel uncomfortable blasting rice with microwaves for 20mins everytime I want to eat them but it's probably a slightly irrational fear. Do you cover it?

It's true that there are microwave rice cookers out there.

im with the pot of water guy... just you a sieve when draining it, and rinse with boiling water from the kettle sorted.. always wash well before cooking.

never had any slosh on my plate in a long time
