UPDATED WITH SOME TOWNS WITH A FEW STOCK AVAILABLE AT THE END OF COMMENTS X
Yet another bargain I found, we've got a rice cooker but not this one and it's fab! wouldn't be without it now

Allegedly not good for Japanese or Korean rice. YMMV.

Hot, if you can get hold of one! Out of stock everywhere near me
This is the cheapest it has ever been, like above if you can find one.
I have this rice cooker and believe me, I would recommend to anyone - its FAB!!
i have this one too - it really is very very good.
Try B&Q they will probably say they have some in stock :-) If not they will reserve one for you.
Thank you managed to reserve one, heated.
Perfect rice, every time. Great for chucking in your own herbs and spices too.
Brilliant!!!!! just ordered one...thank u!!!! X)
Excellent price for this - I paid a tenner for it in a sale last year and I wouldn't be without it. Brilliant buy - esecially at this price. Heat added!
OOS in many places. Use "i check stock dot com" to find stock. Anyway I went for this one as it's cheap anyway and there's stock >

I have one of these and they are good. The only thing that I find is that you have build into the amount of rice you cook that you are going to sacrifice a bottom layer. I also find that different rice requires a different ratio of water level to rice level.
Asda currently selling their own brand rice cooker for £7 for those of you who can't get one.
Thanks OP. Ordered one for my wife - she can't cook rice for sh*t!
This ones a good deal,had mine a year now,bought it for a tenner down from £20 very convenient.Even steam salmon on the top,or put eggs (in shell) on top once rice cooker has finished.Could,nt be without mine after a long day at work.

Nice find, have some heat.
We've one sitting in a cupboard. . .not a cookworks. . more expensive. . .they are rubbish.
Hot if you can find it anywhere
This rice cooker changed my life. Fact.
if you can find one
I've always used a saucepan to cook rice and it seemed to do a decent job ;-)

Cheap if you want it but really does anyone need one of these?
I have a rice cooker - it's called a saucepan - perfect rice every time and no burnt bottom layer
I got one of these a year ago but have never managed to get the rice right. You can't do a single portion as you end up having to put 4 times the amount of water it says but it still sticks to the bottom.

A hot price tho, if you can get it right.
No stock!!! Nearest argos that has stock is 15 miles away
2 left in Cupar, fife if that's a help to anybody?
If you don't want a nasty bottom layer stir it a few times during cooking. I got one of these in the last sale and you do get perfect rice everytime even with cheap rice BUT I would recommend a lakeland microwave rice steamer over these they used to cost about a fiver and it's basically a plastic sieve which the rice goes in that then sits in a outer plastic container which you pour water in and then nuke - perfect everytime AND no burnt layer

yes cos it keeps the rice warm so you dont have to get timings spot on like you do with a pan. Plus the rice comes out far fluffier than a pan.

I do agree thats its crap for single portions though as most just gets stuck to the bottom.

a bad workman...................................................

RTFM!
Told my sister to get one
no stock within 15 miles:( hot deal though
i couldnt find 1 for me as it says out of stock everywhere near my area, but everyone says they ordered one, is that out of london ? coz i checked everywhere in london area .

if they say ordered 1, that means ordered online for home deilvery .
paying delivery charge for more than £5 for an deal item less than £10 doesnt look as a hot deal , quiet funny really.

but the deal itself ot, so i have added some heat

Try B&Q they will probably say they have some in stock :-) If not they … Try B&Q they will probably say they have some in stock :-) If not they will reserve one for you.


My experience of B&Q reserving stuff is extremely poor. As soon as they know it's a deal it disappears and they ring you and tell you it's out of stock.
1 in st. Austell and 3 in Launceston also 1 in Penzance and 1 in Falmouth as of 6.20pm

great price (_;)
Hot if you can get one. All out of stock near me

Looking on the bright side, at least it won't let me order non-existent stock like B&Q, so all I've wasted is a bit of internet time.

voted cold, I cooked some perfectly good rice in a tin can over a fire last night. Cost me 18p as the tin can was from old tesco value baked beans.
Got one of these a few years ago. Can't get rice as good as saucepan rice though.
Maybe I'm getting the quantities wrong slightly.

Hi
do it the Jamie Oliver way one rice two water cover and simmer till water gone perfect honest
Reserved one but not sure now - My other half is the rice fan (I'd rather have potato or pasta or couscous!!) so would only be used for one portion and people are saying it's no good for that...sounds like we'd be wasting a lot of rice!
out of stock near me too, wife will have to use saucepan!!
Cannot use these to cook Japanese or Korean rice..well you can but it does a poor job.
Perfect rice is achieved by a: rinsing it before cooking in cold then warm water, b: NOT stirring it during cooking, c: cooking it for 8 minutes and d: NOT pouring boiling water over it at the end as it then carries on cooking. If you have time, rinse it in cold water to stop it cooking then pour it into a dish and put it in the oven on a low heat for a few minutes to drive the excess moisture out. A fairly pointless gadget unless you have a gigantic kitchen with enough worktop space for every gadget going. That said, a good price so voted hot.
