    Ever since I purchased this item, I’ve been using it almost every single day! It is extremely convenient and is a snap to use. I live in a small apartment and this is the perfect size for one person. I always cook 1 cup of uncooked rice and it is a hearty serving for one person. It is very easy to measure all your ingredients because the non-stick bowl has marked lines on the inside (1 cup, 2 cup, and 3 cup) to show you how much water to add. Clean-up is a breeze because of the non-stick bowl.

    My favorite rice to make is jasmine rice with lots of lime juice, a little lemon juice, and cilantro. I add the rice to the non-stick bowl (1 cup uncooked). Then I add enough lime juice so that all of the rice is wet and soaking in it. Then I add just a little bit of lemon juice (1-2 tsp.). Then add a bit of butter and some salt. After rice is cooked, mix in 2 tsp. of cilantro and stir well. It’s delicious and it’s the only rice I ever make.

    The only problem with this unit is that you have to check the rice occasionally during the cooking phase, otherwise the bottom of the rice will brown. It’s not a catastrophe and is easily remedied. First off, let me just say that if the rice browns a bit, it only looks unpleasant. It still tastes just as good. To avoid this, you need to wait until the rice has absorbed almost all the water. Take off the lid and stir the rice thoroughly. Once the rice has absorbed most of the water, just switch the mode to “keep warm” manually (instead of waiting for it to click). Then occasionally stir the rice while you wait around 5-10 minutes (give or take). Once the rice has absorbed all the water, you can leave it on “keep warm”. I like to switch the mode back to “cook” for around 3-4 minutes so that the rice gets nice and hot. The trick is to take it out before it browns the bottom. This sounds complicated, but it really is not. Just check it occasionally, stir it a few times, then switch it to “keep warm” just before all the water is absorbed (95% or so should be absorbed). This is the only flaw with this unit (hence only 4 stars). Otherwise, I think it is fantastic and it is my new favorite kitchen appliance!

    I take this little rice cooker every where I fly, I’ve been a flight attendant for Delta for years and not every layover is “let’s see where we can eat out tonight?” I enjoy bringing my own food and like to have it while I relax in my hotel room. I use this rice cooker to heat up my food/soup/oat meal/whatever, or making myself a bowl of hot noodle. It cooks rice perfectly and it will keep it warm overnight. It will work anywhere if there is a 110 volts, that means I bring my own transformer when I travel overseas. It’s easy to clean and as long as I don’t drop it on the floor, it keeps on cooking. You can say that my little rice cooker has many miles on it…….

    Things I have made in this rice cooker:
    - Oatmeal
    - Hamburger
    - Gumbo
    - Chili
    - Soup
    - Curry
    - Spaghetti Sauce
    - Pulled Pork
    - Scrambled Eggs
    - Meatballs
    - Ham, and of course
    - Tilapia

    I also routinely put random things with the rice (tofu, frozen veggies, frozen chicken). Is it restaurant quality? Probably not, but this baby has been going strong for a year. Here are the steps I followed to cook all of the above:
    1. Put stuff in pot.
    2. Press Button.

    That is all. You/your kid going away to college? Must buy. The versatility is unbelievable.

    Update:

    - Bacon (not recommended. ugh)
    - Chicken nuggets
    - Hot Dog Bits
    - Pasta
    - Ramen (how could I forget you, ramen?!)

    Edit: After several years I am saddened to announce the expiration of Rice Cooker (RC) 1.0. I have just replaced it with a younger and more clean-shaven version of itself, RC2.0, who has been inducted after producing rice and meatballs in spaghetti sauce with mozzarella cheese. A fantastic little dish for very little money produced by following the same directions as above, only wait until the selector switch moves to “KEEP WARM” before inserting the sauce and cheese and stirring a bit. Delicious.
