I like this little cooker, because even when I forget about it for over an hour, it doesn't burn the rice. I do wish that the removable cooking apparatus had something so I could touch it when it's hot, but other than that, I like it a lot!
Purchased this for my son in college, replacing a black and decker steamer. This one appears to be made better and cooks better.

Love this steamer! It works GREAT. It steams really fast [different times for different foods] and the food tastes so good. So far, I have steamed apples, pears, peaches, broccoli, red pepper, corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes, fish, etc., and everything tasted great. My 6 year-old daughter is eating her veggies every day!!!
The rice cooker/steamer really does make it easy to prepare a quick meal. And, clean up is really easy. My only complaint is that the steamer does not fit tightly into the cooker, but that didn't seem to matter because the rice cooked to perfection and the vegies were nicely steamed. It's really worth the money. Oh, the directions are a little odd, but it was easy enough to figure out.
I didn't even get a chance to use it. When I opened the box and started taking pieces out i noticed a moth ball type smell. It seemed to be coming from the rice bowl part. Made me wonder what it is made of and if it is safe to use. Returned.
This cooker is so convenient and makes wonderful things. The options are endless. Just last night, I placed basmati rice with water on the bottom, chopped up some bourbon salmon, put it in the steamer basket, and voilla - a perfect meal!. Prep time was approx 3 minutes, cook time was 20 minitues. :) Thanks Overstock!
