5 out of 5 eggsThe best rice cooker I have used!

Pros: My wife introduced me to the Tatung TAC-3 years ago. They have made this model for many years actually, and it is still considered the best of the best in many parts of East Asia (Where rice is a staple part of the diet). At one point when we had this for over 10 years, we had snapped a piece off of the handle, Tatung still replaced the part for us, for free.

As long as you put in the right amount of water in with the rice and in the well, it makes perfect rice every time! Also, you can use it to cook other things as well, you can even cook rice-a-roni by putting in the rice, water, and butter, and just letting it go. In 20 minutes you will have it cooked perfectly. Rice porridge is easy too, just double the amount of water used, and add whatever flavoring you want. You can also use it as a warmer for potluck.

Cons: ITs a little bit gurgly when cooking. never bothered me - but If it is an issue to you, you can get a larger model Like a Tac - 6. The lids snap down on those, and the have a catching device for extra water.

Other Thoughts: A different person mentioned that their machine was switching over to warming mode on them, it sounds like they were forgetting to put Water in the Basin of the rice cooker. The rice cooker uses a water well system, and when the water all evaporated, it switches from cook mode to warm mode. The person must have just forgotten to put a measure of water in the basin.

1 out of 5 eggsNo rice tonight!

Pros: Small individual size & nice looking.

Cons: Will not stay in cook mode, reverts instantly to warm. And as shipping from Canada to Newegg (Calif) is $35-45CND (Canada Post & UPS) for a $52CND item, RMA of the cooker doesn't make sense. Tatung could use some quality control!!!

5 out of 5 eggsMy First Rice Cooker

Pros: Small, makes nice rice, comes with a rice spoon

Cons: Not necessarily a con, but cooking 1 cup of rice took longer than it said in the manual. Also, it stays on/warm if you keep it plugged in after it finishes cooking. I think this is pretty normal these days, but I'm not used to this function.

Other Thoughts: I've grown up eating rice but this was my first rice cooker since I am now on my own in college. The rice always turns out good for me and its small size is very convenient.

4 out of 5 eggsSmallest Rice Cooker I've Found

Pros: The rice cooks very well and has a much better texture then rice cooked in the "direct heat" cookers. The cooker is smaller then most others and allows you to cook a minimum of one cup of rice, which is just right for me! I was also worried that rice would stick to the stainless steel inside of the cooker, but it is just about as easy to clean as a non-stick cooker.

Cons: It spits water while it is cooking. Not sticky rice-water, but water from the outer part of the unit which is just plain-old water (any of the smaller rice cookers I have ever had have done this to some degree). I just sit it in the sink while cooking otherwise it leaves a small puddle on the counter ... really no big deal; but I docked the cooker a star for it.

Other Thoughts: Even with the "spitting water" problem this is a nice, small unit that does a GREAT job of cooking rice!
