Got this a week ago, wife questioned why i had wasted money on it as she makes it in pot, then she tried it and admitted it is was good! very nice quality too.
Wouldn't be without mine
For Non-Prime members this is a better option.
Any recommendations for cooking time ?
I normally rinse the rice by pouring water into the container stir and drain then add a large mug of water lightly salt place in microwave 850watt 5 minutes remove , loosen lid let steam out stirring and check how much water is still there then return to microwave 3 to 4 minutes that's for a mug and half of rice. Best to check it and refine your timing as not to burn the plastic or rice. On the plus side makes great rice and uses less energy and water. Caution container will be very very hot.

..almost did not fit in a microwave
This is the bomb. We are hobless for a while as we are doing up the kitchen. Got this for rice and it does indeed cook better than I can cook rice on a hob.

I use a small coffee cup. Two parts water to one rice for 10 minutes. Perfect every time.

Do wash your rice first to get all that starch off it!

I think that they designed it to use the pressure it creates inside to cook quicker so there is no need to let steam out. With my experience, this is what I do:

1) 1 cup of rise + 2 cups of cold water in the bow (yes you can rinse rise in cold water first, I don't do it to save time. I basically add twice as much of water based on the volume).

2) Lock the pot with holes matching vertically with pressure chamber (middle disk). Check on rise packaging times for microwave + add 3-5min (for example it says for 800W 10min, put it on 13-15min based on your experience and microwave power)

3) Take it out the microwave and leave it for minimum 5 minutes for the pressure to do the magic

4) Open gently the pot and use the spoon included to mix it.

Let me know if it worked for you
Read in an article an old Chinese secret, put rice in the bowl and then fill up with cold water until there is an inch of water above the rice, they say up to the first knuckle on your finger next to thumb, and that will always be the right amount, still have to try it, but good if it works.
