4 out of 5 eggsGreat Rice Cooker For the Price

Pros: Cheap
Sleek looks
On and off switch to control whether it will keep warm or not

Cons: Rice can stick to bottom *but I found the solution, read below!
Hard to clean the lid, as others indicated

Other Thoughts: ***I FOUND THE SECRET TO KEEP THE RICE FROM STICKING TO THE BOTTOM***
After you cook a batch of rice, leave the keep warm switch to off and DON'T OPEN IT for 20-30 minutes. Or if you have to, just take what you need and close it again. Then the rice will not stick to the bottom at all!

My dad bought me this rice cooker in 2009 and it's been working faithfully, multiple times a week. Once I discovered how to keep the rice from sticking, I have no real qualms with it besides maybe the difficulty in cleaning the lid. It's a great deal for the price. The on/off switch is great because I can set it to cook and have it auto shut off once it's done

1 out of 5 eggsRice Cooker???

Pros: Price and it's stainless steel and it knows when 20 mins. is up.

Cons: Rice sticks to bottom. Bottom stains if you use Tap water (Do people actually still use tap water?) You won't enjoy the clean-up!

Other Thoughts: I got mine as a gift to make my life easier... HA HA! What could be easier than putting 2 cups of rice into 4 cups of (filtered) water as soon as it starts boiling then reducing the heat to low, setting the timer for 20 min. covering the pan and forgetting about it until the timer rings and turning off the heat? It works every time and all you need is a pan with lid and a timer, even your cell phone has a timer! Do we really need a specialized piece of equipment that is nothing more than a timed pot with a lid (that can't be cleaned properly) for 4 times the money of a regular pan? Hmm, Do we?
Methinks you JEST!

3 out of 5 eggsNice but not great

Pros: I've had this for nearly a year. I love that it is stainless steel, it cooks quickly, and it is simple to use.

Cons: After cooking rice, rice gunk naturally accumulate on the lid plate, around the silicon (?) enclosure, and behind the lid plate. But you can't take the lid plate out to give it a good cleaning. Unless you put a lot of time into it, there will always be gunk there somewhere. I've seen models where the lid plate comes off so you can wash it. Too bad this isn't one of them.

Secondly, the electric plate appears to be staining brown. Not sure if it is rust or something else. I don't mind the staining; I just hope it won't affect the operations of the cooker.

Other Thoughts: The cleaning is a big minus. I personally would opt for another stainless steel rice cooker that is easier to clean.

1 out of 5 eggsJust plain sucks

Pros: cheap

Cons: rice stick to the bottom

Other Thoughts: I bought it cuz i thought what can i lose with this cheap rice cooker. however, washing it has turned out to be a biggest nightmare and hassel i ever experience with a rice cooker. one of the post was right. i'd sell it for $3 in a yard sale and not looking back anymore. who has the time to soak it in the water and wash it next morning. and by seeing how much rice i have to waste just makes me feel even more guilty. This rice cooker is not worth a penny. DONT WASTE your $$$$. I'm very serious!!!

4 out of 5 eggsCheapest stainless steel rice cooker and solid construction

Pros: The rice pot steel is solid and thick. Easy to use, just click
and walk away. The rice is cooking perfectly, no overheating. I've been looking for other stainless steel cooker and most are 4-5 times more expensive. Though Tatung brand, it does not look old style.

Cons: The inside cover is aluminum (not steel).

4 out of 5 eggsGood Cooker - Cheap

Pros: Bought this to replace an old cooker with an aluminum pot that sticks like crazy. The design on this cooker and modern - looks great. Stainless steel pot not truly nonstick but does come off easily with a few minute of soaking.

Cons: Not 100% nonstick but I did not want to go with Teflon. So not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I am Asian. So I eat a lot of rice. My old rice cooker still works but hated cleaning the aluminum pot. This rice cooker is great & cheap. It costs a lot more in your Chinatown stores. Thanks newegg. Now I can build my computer and have a good bowl of rice!
