This review is from: TATUNG TRC-10STW Stainless Steel Direct Heat Rice Cooker
Pros: Stainless steel liner, no teflon flaking off into the food
Easy cleanup, liner looks new after every washing
Cooks rice consistently the same every time
Removable steam basket
Cons: stainless steel on outside of cooker seems "thin," ours arrived with a dent
Other Thoughts: There is a learning curve to making rice with the stainless steel liner as opposed to a non-stick liner. You need to use approximately 1 1/2 or up to 2 cups of water per cup of dry rice. We unplug the cooker as soon as the rice has finished cooking and let it sit unopened for 20 minutes. When a sufficient amount of water has been used and the rice has been allowed to "sit," there is no burning or sticking of rice to the pot. If rice is stuck on, pour a little water onto the bottom of the cooker and let sit a few minutes, cooked on rice will soften. If rice residue is stuck on the bottom of the empty pot, pour in some hot water and let sit a few minutes, scrape with a nylon scrubbie and rinse, then wash. It will look shiny and new.
