Bargain ty op
Was looking at it and found it small side as was hoping to put a bowl in plastic tray while cooking rice. Was not sure if able to close cover as its the fancy type with seals, any thoughts?
Thats what have been looking for for ages and a stainless steel inner pot, but it feels a pipe dream.

BTW otherwise, its a superior rice cooker than the Asda one that comes off and on.

Remember 3 year warranty and the non stick is Swiss with a 3x better over standard non sticks, correct?

You will get perfectly cooked rice every time with minimum effort.
The art of cooking rice rinse n soak rice for half n hour two parts water to rice bring water to boil throw rice in boil for 5mins then turn down heat cover n let it steam cook
They work well and can be left keeping warm while you get whatever you are having to eat is ready. I find that although the non stick bowl is very easy to clean the lid is not as easy, especially the seal. It would be better if it clipped out easily without having to remove a screw to separate it.

I am experimenting with mine at the moment to make some black garlic, it should be ready tomorrow as it has been on for 13 days so far

Some like this one say 9 days some say two weeks some say 3 weeks, some say don't peel the outer layer some say peel it.

I am going for 2 weeks unpeeled for my first attempt.
Once you get a microwave rice cooker you will never go back.

Agree regarding the cleaning of the lid. its a pain that it doesn't detach. i find the placement of the power lead and thee hinge is on (opposite ends) makes it awkward to place this on a counter neatly. they shoiuld have designed the lead to fit in to the back and the hinnge to be at the back too.
had ourts for many many years and still working fine.

Well, not PERFECTLY cooked; most of these cheap Rice Cookers cook a little too hot; a decent (usually Chinese market), rice cooker takes a bit longer, but the difference in how the rice comes out is amazing.

I've had the above, and it is a very decent little cooker, but the £60 spent on a Chinese household name rice cooker was well worth it.
Can agree with too hot, is easy but find it just won't cool down enough and the rice burns and sticks to bottom. But goodluck getting this quality for this price elsewhere.

If you follow the instructions properly re amount of water added, you will get perfectly steamed rice with full nutritional content intact. Using a saucepan means throwing out the vitamins in the boiled water, unless you have time to watch it like a hawk whilst steaming. In my experience rice cooked in a rice cooker is always perfectly cooked with minimal fuss and bother. Get a rice cooker and buy Thai Jasmine fragrant rice, you will never top that for aroma and flavour. It’s a wee bit expensive, but so worth it!

If your wanting a large rice cooker with a stainless steel bowl and easy to clean. Mum has a Breville one. Was £30 for expensive but she's had it nearing on 10 years now. I recommend it highly. Available in Argos

I used to think the same...then I got a rice cooker about ten years ago...what's Had perfect rice, every single time.

Honestly, they are great. Wouldn't be without mine.

Thank you v much. Was sceptical at first but its brushed stainless steel inner pot in Q&A.
Googling got me this long time ago £20
hotukdeals.com/deals/breville-18l-rice-cooker-was-3999-now-1999-at-argos-1997751

And directly at Argos £24

The option I thought was to buy the Brevilles stainless steel inner pot and put it in my Russell Hobbs. Now to check prices and sizing.

[All I see for this model on eBay, is definitely an aluminium inner pot. I am not so convinced]
Edited by: "davening" 17th May
Confirmed via a question to a Amazon purchaser of the same unit, that inner pot is definitely aluminium with non stick.
Glad I did not act on the recommendation of the person who suggested the Breville.
