These are very well-made and excellent value for money. The lid can be a little hard to keep clean though.

Nearly an hour and no rice debate?

Do these rice cookers cook rice well? or will it just be another trip to recycling

I bought one of these the last time they were in lidl. They are fantastic, small and compact, perfect for my small family and perfect rice every time. Definitely recommend.

I want one of these but just wished it was 1.5l

Yes, I don't use anything else.

Have rice 3/4 times per week, family of four, perfect every time.

Wash rice in cold water in a sieve until water runs clear ( no starch left) and follow rice cooker instructions normally has water fill marks.

Salt to taste, or sometimes depending what meal were having a teaspoon of Schwarz Pilau Rice Seasoning.

Not easier than traditional rice making method but it is more convenient if you have a tendency to leave pot on to long, as most rice cookers have a stay warm feature which means it shouldn't burn

We have had a Sanyo one for over 8 years, still makes perfect rice, we use it 3-4 times a week

Thanks everyone for the replies. for a tenner its got to be worth giving this a go. We have rice almost daily here.

Bit ricey for me

These are cheap and crap quality but they do cook rice really very well.

We use it daily. This is the 2nd one because the first wore out. Now the 2nd one's "enamel" is knackered. Got the 1st one replaced under guarantee.

Unless you go really expensive for proper Japanese rice cookers, which are actually too slow for regular rice, then you might as well pick up one of these and get it replaced before chucking it and buying another.

3 years (incl. replacement) for a tenner is decent.

Rice cooker is ok but couple of downsides to it. It suggests using a few drops of vegetable oil but I found the rice just sticks to the pan. The minimum rice you can cook is two cups about 3 or 4 adult portions. You can use it to steam vegatables but not at the same time as cooking rice. Steaming takes longer than boiling (30 mins) but it does cook the rice better. Mine broke after 2 months but store refunded without any quibble.

Also seems a bit unsafe with the way the flex plugs into the back like that. I have one but I've confused the flex with other flexes I have so am almost afraid to use the thing.

Do you really need a cooker for rice, 2 cups basmati, 3 cups water, cover, microwave 12 mins. Done

Thanks

Maybe you should label the flexes? Or just give up on electricity to be safe:)

Don't bother I got one last time and it takes twice as long as a pan and is very sloppy

we got one last time it was sale, and only lasted 1 month! (used on a weekly basis) ended up buying a more expensive one, and had no problems x

Not if you know how to cook rice !

Take Jasmine rice for instance, 110% water to rice, so 3 and roughly 1/3rd cups of water to 3 cups of rice.

Of course, you wouldn't try to cook any decent Japanese rice in this but for cheap long grain, Basmati etc., it is fine (for a while).

It also cooks pasta very well

The cord removal 'function' is good too if you just want to whack a bunch of (insulated) cooked rice in the middle of the table with some heat still going on it's hotplate.
