1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money

Pros: It has a handle.

Cons: I opened it up and washed the pot. I loaded it up with a recipe from the internet and started it. The steam valve on top gurgled and spit a bit but then started to act as I expected. I want away. When I came back there were no lights on. I tested the plugin and it was fine. I plugged it in elsewhere but it is dead. It was on sale for $15 with free shipping so it will go to recycling.

Other Thoughts: garbage

5 out of 5 eggsThe perfect result everytime

Pros: I purchased this item approximately 4 years ago and it worked great. I recently had to replace the item since it stopped working. I replaced the item with the same make and model since it is a great value for the price. I received the replacement rice cooker last week and can't wait to start using it again. It makes cooking rice so easy and perfect.

Cons: Will scorch the rice at the bottom of the cooker even if left on warm too long

1 out of 5 eggsTatung TRC-8DC Electric Rice Cooker

Pros: nothing good about this item

Cons: This is a 2nd unit I bought. First one died within 2 months. Second one does not work at all - I have to pay shipping to return, which means I might as well throw it away. Newegg should not be selling this product. DO NOT buy it because of the price!!!!!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: First one stopped working within 1 month. The replacement stopped working just over 1 month. IT'S NOT WORTH THE HASSLE, DO NOT BUY, WORSE PRODUCT EVER.

Other Thoughts: If you are reading this, you already see how others have reviewed this product. SO PLEASE DO NOT BE TEMPTED BY THE PRICE. IT IS NOT WORTH IT.

While I understand Tatung to be of a higher quality Asian brand for home appliances, this rice cooker was DEFINITELY NOT the case, nor was Tatung's customer service/support. Newegg was very helpful in processing the initial return when the product stopped working, and I received the replacement within a week. Thought it might have just been a fluke with the initial rice cooker, until the replacement stopped working. Tried reaching out to Tatung's warranty support. Did NOT get a response from a Tatung associate until 3 weeks later, which I was referred to contact another department/individuals. Of course, none of those individuals ever responded to any of my emails. After many attempts and TWO MONTHS LATER, I reached out to the first and only associate that I received a response from and they sent me a form with directions to send the product in for inspection (at my own expense). It's going to cost $13 to get this rice cooker shipped, which they MAY OR MAY NOT repair depending on their inspection of the product. REALLY?!!

BOTTOM LINE. TATUNG QUESTIONABLE BRAND. THIS RICE COOKER. TERRIBLE PRODUCT. EVEN WORSE CUSTOMER SERVICE. DO NOT BUY, unless you plan on replacing after a few uses.
