We bought this rice cooker because we liked it's look. Doesn't have too many bells and whistles-- only two settings-- ON and WARM.
The one disappointing thing about this cooker is that it bubbles and spews water everywhere while it cooks the rice. We've owned several rice cookers, and this is the worst one. Regardless of the TYPE of rice (short grain, long grain, brown), the AMOUNT of rice, or HOW MANY TIMES YOU WASH the rice, it still bubbles over and leaves the counter in a big mess. I'm still experimenting for any way to reduce the splatter. Another downside may be that there is no ON/OFF button. If you leave it plugged in, it will stay on warm.
Good points are it's fast, it looks great, the nonstick liner is very nice, AND most importantly, the rice comes out great every time.
I have not tried cooking/steaming anything else in this rice cooker but rice.
Hi, can I cook quinoa and steel-cut oats in this cooker?
Also, the current price ($**) on your site is higher than major retailers (like T*****, W****** and H*** ***** who sell it for $** or less). Why?

My sister has two dogs whose daily diet includes steamed brown rice & she has to prepare it every day -- very time consuming. I'd like to send this to her as a gift, make her life a wee bit easier, so is this T-fal unit suitable for brown rice and other grains or is it best for white rice only?emma912 on Sep 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This works great for any type of rice and vegetables.
Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 30, 2013
Hi ney93, this unit can keep your rice warm after cooking it if that is what you are asking. You can use the steam setting for this but it does not have a warmer setting. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 11, 2013
