thts cheap..do u still get their 3 year warranty

I had one of these - wasn't impressed as it stopped working after 3 or 4 uses but Lidl refunded without any quibble.

Couple of points to note with this - you have to cook at least 2 portions of rice (as a minimum) and you cannot cook rice and steam veg at the same time - it is one or the other. So no option of cooking a small amount of rice whilst steaming some veg. If steaming veg, the basket is very small - maybe enough for 2 portions.

Ended up buying a proper steamer with rice basket which is far more practical....

@ £9.99 No

But keep the receipt and if there's any problem Lidl are good with refunds anyway

I got one of these last year and I've used it a lot, no issues yet! Yeah it has the 3 year warranty!

Definitely has a 3 yrs warranty

We've got one and definitately cook rice and steam veg (or fish) at the same time. Even frozen fish (but reduce water content as the defrosting adds to the rice water!). Agree steaming basket is small, but there is only 2 of us so perfect.

Really can't fault it in any way

Same here.
I got one of this a year ago and use it to cook rice often and it is still going strong until today.
Could be used a steamer while cooking rice.

There is a reason why pretty much everyone with electricity in SE asia , even if they can't afford much else has a rice cooker......
Once you learn how to use one, you won't look back.

I know I know - you can use a multitude of other devices, but only after months in Asia did we twig...

There is a reason rice cookers are so popular in every country which eats a lot of rice. They work.

It steams the rice which to do in a pan requires a fair bit of attention and time keeping to do right.
Rice cookers have a keep warm function so it set it then let it do its thing, doesn't matter if your 10 minutes or even a few hours late.

If I want rice its rice cooker or nothing for me now, any extra I put in the fridge and use for a stir-fry or fried rice

I'm a rice muncher - everybody in China uses a rice cooker - you put the rice in, add water, press 'on' switch and enjoy your life instead of waiting and watching rice to boil before lowering heat to simmer and switching gas off when done. Afterwards, just rinse the non stick bowl instead of scraping burnt on rice from the bottom of the pan !

Bought mine to replace the £150 Panasonic one I got from Hong Kong which gave up after 2 years. Mine is in daily use since last year and no probs (though there is a dent in the bowl when I dropped it on the floor but doesn't affect the rice cooking).

If you're keeping rice - see this handy advice thehygienedoctor.co.uk/can…ce/

I bought one of these about 6 months ago, used it only to cook rice. It worked perfectly but broke last week. I would advise not to carry the cooker by the lid handle. I replaced this with an Instant Pot, but would recommend this rice cooker as a cheap alternative. I'm tempted to buy this again as a backup, but the wife will surely ask why I spent £99 on the Instant Pot!

Don't stop there! Why own a kettle for boiling water? Just use a pan! And hey, that device for toasting bread? Throw it away cause you can toast bread under your grill! I know, you can thank me later

these are great. first one failed but second going strong. so easy to make good rice with.

Anyone know the dimensions of this? I'm looking for a compact one that does just 3 portions.

Its about the size of a medium saucepan but slightly taller. This will do 3 portions no problem.

Old post, but, can anyone comment on what amp fusew the power cable requires? I assume a 3 or 5. I moved house recently, and have loads of black power cables that will fit, just not sure which to use.
