We have been satisfied with this cooker. If you follow the instructions it will create perfect rice. The steam tray is great for vegetables and fish. It was my first try at a rice/food steamer cooker. I cook rice occasionally and it saves a lot of time.

This rice cooker makes rice just fine - like most inexpensive ones it cooks the rice fine but you have to unplug it right away or the rice will brown if left on "warm". What we hate about it is that it is a pain to clean - too many parts that really need scrubbing. It also dribbles a lot of water when it is cooking. We go through a lot of rice (we eat Indian food twice a day pretty consistently) and we hate this cooker. A basic cooker with a simple lid works just as well and is easier to clean.

The rice cooker is a good cooker if it wasn't for the poor teflon coating on the inside of the bowl. If the coating was more durable and lasted more than a few years, I would've given it at least a 4 star rating. Just prepare to buy a new one after a few years due to peeling of the teflon coating. I've never had any issues with coating coming up in other Japanese branded rice cookers that my other family members had for over 10 years. We have toddlers and this peeling of the coating represents some serious health hazards as it can come off and be mixed into the food you're trying to cook. We tried calling Krups customer service and they basically said tough luck, you're SOL since it's been out of warranty which is only 1 year. I would've expected more both in quality/durability and customer service from a company like Krups. I'll be buying the tried and true Japanese branded rice cooker from now on after this bad experience. If you only use this occasionally, you might not run into any issues but for someone that eats rice as a daily food staple, just be prepared to buy a new unit after a couple years.

Initially the dual function of steaming other food induced me to purchase this appliance, but I found the directions on preparation hard to follow. For example the directions indicate fill line 3 but there is no line labeled 3 and the lines that are there are hard to read because of the dark color of the interior of the pot. Also, the rice tends to get browned at the bottom of the pot even if the unit is unplugged as soon as it indicates cooking has stopped. This appliance is OK but I'm planning to shop for another one.
