I researched this rice cooker for quite awhile before purchasing it. It has wonderful reviews, no matter where you look! :) I was hesitant to spend this much money on it, however after using it for the 1st time could not be more happier! I am very pleased with my decision! It made wonderful, perfect rice... the very 1st time I used it that tasted fabulous! My kitchen smelled amazingly of cooked rice! For only a 3 C. cooker, this makes a ton of rice! It is perfect for my family. It is super easy to use, to clean and to carry & store! It has easy to use functions and features, and is top of the line quality that you can see and feel. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this to anyone!
I use this for cooking brown rice only. The directions for how to cook rice are ambiguous, but after the first few attempts of trying different things, I got the process down and the machine is pretty easy to use. The rice turns out great. I only use the cooker for making brown rice and the capacity for brown rice is less than for white rice. You can only put in 2 cups of uncooked brown rice compared to 3 cups of white rice. 2 cups of uncooked brown rice produces about 5 cups of cooked rice.
