Yes, my wife and I have used this exact model for several years. It's easy use and to clean. Approx 18mins to cook basmati rice.

Got one of these it's fantastic cooks sticky fluffy rice using the cheap long grain or a basmatti which is less sticky. Takes about 12 mins for 3-4 portion. I have also cooked pasta a couple of times.
We have started using the cheap rice in a bag from Aldi for 65p. 2 mins and done. Tastes good too.
Still fancy one of these, but does it not start to cause problems for the microwave with lots of steam?

No. The steam is released when you open the lid.
Honestly, this is one of the best kitchen 'gadgets' I own (and I have a lot!)
I paid £7.99 two years ago for this. This is a bargain. Heat added

There isn't that much steam during the process; most of the water is absorbed into the rice. I did brown rice the other day, which is a bit more tricky as it is best to keep adding more water to that as the water is lost as steam with that as it doesn't absorb as easily.
I own 4 rice cookers, 2 microwave and 2 electric. This is good and easy to clean but it is quite tall so check the dimensions as it didn’t fit in my old one.
I have nailed the rice cooking thing with this beast, get one. As above says it is big and just fits into my microwave.
yep this is my go to rice cooker. cooks better rice than our local take away

yes worth every penny, depending on how you like your rice a cup of plain basmati cooks in approx 11 mins in a 850w microwave plus an extra 3 or 4 minutes resting but if you like your rice flavoured then i switch to my instant pot

11 minutes that is pretty quick. Usually I cook a basmati for 20 minutes.
That's what I hate about hotukdeals...A rice cooker a was the furthest thing from my mind and guess what? I now have a rice cooker on the way!
What sold it was reading in the reviews that you can do pasta as well, sounds good, hope it fits in the microwave though.

good point - way too tall for my microwave. Prefer cooking on a hob anyway as only takes 6 minutes rather than 18-20 in this. Cheaper on energy on a hob too.

I read in the reviews that the instructions on levels of rics/water are scant, anyone have a recommended suggestion to levels of rice and water, and do you start with boiling water first and then add it to this? I'm a novice in making rice
For anyone interested the height is 16.1cm, so it isn't that tall.
This is excellent. Can't recommend it enough. The instructions are quite good regarding quantities, but you quickly get used to what seems right. Ours does enough for 3 in about 9 to 10 minutes. You start with cold water. There is a bit of steam released , but it's not too bad.

I just use a mug for measuring. Half a mug of rice and then a full mug of water - does rice for me but hen i like a lot of rice with homemade curry - I do rinse the rice first using a mesh strainer
Damn this is annoying. I have a pretty small microwave and I think this is too tall for it. Ah me b0llucks!
I use 300ml water, 70g of white rice. stir.
5 mins full power in microwave, stir,
another 5 mins microwave full power, stir
then usually another 2 mins in microwave
Do you have to rinse the rice in boiling water once cooked with these?
and when is it best to add salt, before you put it in the microwave or after?

Generally 2:1 ratio water to rice. 75g is typically one portion, so add 150g of water. However it's more successful if you do more than one portion as it will lose too much water if not enough rice, otherwise add a bit more water. Make sure you don't remove lid and leave to rest for 10 minutes after cooking.

I have used an old Pampered Chef rice cooker for the last 10 years. The way I have always cooked it is as follows..

Put your desired amount of rice and add water, I have found that the depth of water on top of rice is about the same as your first knuckle of your fore finger. Give it 13mins.

I use a cup or half cup measure, water to rice ratio is two to one so for a single good size portion i would use one half cup of unwashed rice to one cup of cold water, give it 10 minutes at full power (850w) then let it rest for 2 or three minutes for larger quantities the ratio is the same but just increase your cooking time. I never salt mine as i prefer to add it later if needed.
Follow this link for the official systema instructions the ratio 1x rice to 2x cold water 12 minutes white rice Brown basmati 18 minutes works great for me i also soak and rinse the rice before cooking https://www.hotukdeals.com/visit/comment/39925252/16334437
Health wise Is It good to eat rice cooked in microwave?
For brown rice. 17 minutes in the microwave. Water up to the first line of middle finger (filipino way).
HotUKDeals is crazy voting, this same item was on at 30p cheaper a month ago and it went to -146%. How is that possible?
Brought this a few weeks back, it's pretty good. Typically I'll have 200g of brown rice (washed) and use 400-450ml of cold water. Around 20 mins in the microwave and its done! Definitely recommend

No, if you use the correct ratio of rice to water, the water should all be absorbed so you won't have excess water.
