Lowest price I've seen for this model, just bought one from Very last week as my old Tefal is now 10 years old and starting to look a bit worn!
Seems Amazon have now matched Very's price too.

Holy moly, this was on offer at £55 a while back, it was cheap at that. I bought it and it's a great rice cooker, especially for 粥. At £39.99 it's a steal.

According to CCC it regularly drops this low but no guarantee it will stay that regular. Currently fighting with myself to justify getting this...

Sorry, I meant pressure

I've had this for some time but just cannot master the rice. Trying to cook for 2, not the 4+ the helpful instructions give.

Any hints on rice for 2? Would only be wild rice or brown rice I'd be cooking, no white.

I've only just got mine, mostly used my old 4 in 1 for white rice, but according to instructions it says:
for 2 cups(270g) of wholegrain brown rice, fill up to the 2.25 mark on the bowl(or add 500ml) with water

wild rice says for 4 cups so assume just half the measures (250g rice to 2.25/500ml water)

theres also a recipe using brown rice which says 200g brown rice to 450ml water

hope that helps!

Nope, thanks anyway, but I tried just halfing the recipe for 4 (amongst other things) but it just stuck to the bowl! Cheers anyway.

2 cups of rice, 2.2 cups of water.

The general rule for rice is to add 20% more water.

1 litre of rice and 1.2 litres of water, perfect every time.

Pro tip: Try adding a dash of salt too!

OK, I'll give it another go, thanks for the tips.

I've had one of these for a few years, and it's great for rice. I use it as a slow cooker as well. I especially like using it for rice that's trickier to get right in a pot, like sticky Japanese style rice.

For a one measuring cup portion of regular white rice, add a cup and a half of water - I did it a few days ago and it was fine.

Also, if your not doing it already, give your rice a good rinse before cooking, that is supposed to help remove some starch/sticking.

God yeah - definitely wash rice before cooking. Not only starch but you have to wash away dust / dirt. Rice is dirty. Sits in dirty warehouse, dirty lorries.

Yep, I always wash my rice. It's just the 2 people rice I can't get right.

BTW, I find this to be an excellent slow cooker as well. Now to master the rice...

I don't understand all this 2 parts rice to 2 1/2 parts water or whatever. You just put rice in bowl, rinse it twice, then re-add water until it covers just above your knuckles when your hand is placed on the surface of the rice, flat, palm down. That's it.

So, to make clear, this is your explicit advice for this particular make and model based on your experience cooking with this particular make and model?

No. While I own this rice cooker and it's what I mainly use, that method is correct for cooking rice in any rice cooker or indeed in a pot on the stove the old fashion way. But of course in the case of the latter you also need to know when to turn down the heat from full to minimum (with a rice cooker it handles this for you automatically).

Please believe me when I say I'm not being flippant.

But people have varying sizing in the hand region (just ask The Donald), so I feel that being able to accurately measure with cups is going to get me better results than going back to something like the way they used to measure horses.

Then I won't need my wife to call me if she's making rice one night to make sure I can flatten my hand on top of the rice to get the correct amount of water because her hands are vastly smaller than mine.

I think hand size difference doesn't matter. We all have different size hands I guess, and our rice turns out fine. I guess you do whatever method works for you. How I taught you is how my parents taught me, and my friends all same follow this method. But if you find a different method that works for you that's ok too!
