Has been cheaper but this is a decent price for the last 12 months at least! Excellent reviews. Own it and would buy again for a gift!

This microwave rice cooker combines microwave technology with traditional oriental cooking. It uses a steam circulation system which means the food is evenly heated whilst maintaining moisture. the rice cooker has a durable base container with integrated handles and a removable lid with handle. a useful spoon and measuring cup with handle are also included.
The rice cooker is easy to use, simply place 1 1/2-2 Cups of water to 1 cup of rice in the steamer and cook in a microwave for 8-10 minutes. the cooker container can also conveniently be placed in a fridge, great for any leftover rice. the rice cooker is microwave safe to 120ºC / 148ºF and fridge and freezer safe to -18ºC / 0º F. the rice cooker is dishwasher safe for easy maintenance.

Heat added. Thanks for this, I've gone for the Amazon Warehouse option, £5.30 so saved a few pence

I have been using this rice cooker for last 7/8 months and am absolutely impressed by it. Heat added for this price !!

hot ordered thanks

Thanks OP! Heat added.

I had one of these until it cracked and started to leak. I must say I was quite impressed by the rice it produce. This is very tempting..

We have a plastic microwave dish with lid from the 99p shop (came with a smaller one as well) and we use that, and just put rice and water in that and that is great for me.

Not sure if this would be that much better.

stupid question (maybe) what would be the best 'rice to water' for cooking wholegrain brown rice in this???

I'd never go back to not using a microwave rice cooker unless i really had to.

rice to water: just cover the rice, and maybe 1 cm more.

I just use a normal bowl in the microwave - pyrex or something - cooks rice just fine - no need for a special device

Can anyone that has this pls give me the dimensions? I did look on amazon (mobile site) but couldn't find them, my microwave is smaller than an average size one! Thank you.

not just for rice, i do spuds and veg in mine to. its versatile ill give it that and the rice is ace. steam potatoes in these too and then just mash them. its quick, clean and simple to use

Size: 18cm (D) x 15cm (H)

It does enough rice for 3/4 people. As the plastic is quite thick it does warm up and potentially can malform if you microwave it for too long or do more than one batch without a break/cooling it down.

Not a big problem as rice holds its heat and can be tipped into a vessel and mixed with subsequent batches but worth bearing in mind.

I think a normal ceramic bowl and a ceramic plate to cover it will do the job.

This ratio doesn't really work with wholegrain/brown rice I find, you tend to need more

Had one of these for 7 years now and still looking good, and it's even a few pence cheaper now.

It's best to experiment with the quantity of water from the recommended amounts, and also use boiling water and reduce the time by a minute or so, Stir the rice when it comes out of the microwave and leave for 5 mins.

Very good for packet savoury rice, which normally sticks to a pan.

Any one use a rice cooker and this? If so, which do you prefer?

Got one of these - use it at work a few times a week. Cooks the rice spot on for me - I tend to use 1 cup of white rice to slightly less than 2 cups of water for around 12 minutes in the microwave.

Also i think that it is a great energy saver compared to induction cooking...
I have followed the following instructions for the preparation and got an almost perfect result! (credit goes to catamighty who put the ratios in his amazon review)

RICE WATER
3 Cups 4 ¼ Cups
2 Cups 3 Cups
1 Cup 1 ½ Cups

COOKING TIME (Full Power)
15-18 mins
13-15 mins
9-11 mins

Last i have noted that the rice prepared with this recipient will be preserved even better (inside the fridge) than the one prepared in the traditional manner.

We use ours every day. It also is excellent for vegetables.

just bought one of these yesterday

I'll give my feedback as I used this yesterday. It worked well with basmati rice, 2 cups took about 14 minutes in a 900w microwave. I did stop it at 12 and saw there was still some water and carried on for a few minutes.

Cooked a very good rice, not far from rice cooker quality.

Useful to have if cooking small amounts

A rice cooker is better as it can keep the rice at a constant temperature after cooking so you can stir fry vegetables, curries, etc without having to time it to perfection.
