This review is from: TATUNG TAC-3AS 3 Cup Mini Rice Cooker
Pros: I bought this rice cooker without a review on newegg, however I bought it based on the Tatung brand name. This brand is apparantly the largest selling rice cooker in Taiwan and stories of it being the family cooker for more than 15 years are scattered around the internet. Whats so special about this rice cooker is that instead of the pot of rice and water sitting on a hot plate, it sits in a small pool of water at the bottom of the cooker. What this does is two things. First of all rice cannot burn in this cooker. Second this creates a steam cycle in the cooker that helps heat the rice from all directions. I do have the 3 cup mini model but its my understanding that the larger models work exactly the same. Anyways it takes some tinkering but with the correct ratio of water to rice this cooker will produce some of the best rice you can get. It has a carrying handle for taking it different places (if for some reason you need a rice fix) and also it comes with a top tray that allows you
Cons: ....continued from top: to cook a multitude of vegetables or even chicken, while cooking the rice underneath. One problem I had out of the box is that the directions are not very clear as to how the rice cooker works. Also the included measuring cup can't accurately measure a cup nor can the inner pot markers. For me 1 cup of calrose rice to 1.5 cups of water works ideally. On the inner cooker i just put enough water to coat the bottom. For me this has produced fantastic rice infinite times better than my old Oster model. This Tatung rice cooker is, I can say with confidence, worth more than it costs.
