Not worth the price tag
The unit seems built well and easy to clean but the instructions are lacking. A lot.
It's all a bit of guess work trying to figure out how to cook with it especially if you want to cook more than just rice. The stainless steel bowl is the main reason we bought it but the first one was slightly damaged. We had a new one sent out no questions asked. I would be a lot happier if the instructions were clearer for English speakers and a bit more informative.

I bought this rice cooker on the 28 Nov 2018 because it has a stainless steel bowl which is a healthier option to a non stick coated bowl. It was working well until last month when the rice would not cook, the water in the rice got warm and that was it. It lasted 17 months, I checked the warranty and it was for 12 months only. It’s a shame that for an appliance that’s in the $350-400 range to only last 17 months and had to be replaced.

Love it! Especially good for family with kids
Always recommend stainless stain rice cooker. No coating inside which come off easily. Healthier and especially good for family with kids. Easy to clean. Did a great job for all kinds of functions. I like to use it to cook congee which I never need to worry it over cooked and stick to the pot.
Amazing product and enjoying every single moment with it.
I bought this smart cooker mainly because the the inner surface of the inner pot of my old rice cooker scratched. I was recommended to look for a stainless steel inner pot rice cooker and I came across the smart cooker. It has changed the way i use rice cooker (this is really multi-function not only cook rice). With the dishes that can be cooked with it, is amazing. I made claypot chicken rice which I love, I find the texture from the final output is satisfying. I use it for cooking soup most of the time and the rice is so fluffy. Apart from th...is, the stainless steel inner pot has been great in maintenance and cleaning. Furthermore, I will not have to worry about scratches on the surface as the stainless steel material is durable. I am exploring other dishes now and with the cook book as well as cooking session organised by Buffalo Cookware have been an eye opener. I am loving every single moment with this smart cooker. Good job Buffalo and keep up the good work by introducing more recipe and method to cook good food.
Excellent product. Wife best helper! No regret!
We have 2 young kids (4yr and 1 yr). This smart cooker is a good helper for our family especially busy with kids and work. Quick, easy, convenient, the most important is making delicious food. It function more than a rice cooker. Chicken rice, stew pork, stir fried vege/meat, curry chicken, all kinds of soups, etc. Definitely recommended.

Finally a Stainless Steel Smart Cooker!
So glad I stumbled onto this smart cooker. I have the 10 cup model. I didn't want to buy a normal rice cooker or smart cooker as they usually contain inner pots coated with teflon or other non stick ingredients. The Buffalo IH has a stainless steel inner pot. It is surprisingly easy to clean and quite non stick. The outside is also easy to clean. The function buttons are easy to use. There's some great functions including fast cook, soup, porridge and even bread! So far I've made a few soups and curries plus cooked a load of rice. Everything co...oks wonderfully and there is no mess. It is relatively quiet. It comes with a steamer insert as well to cook vegetables etc, which is handy, as well as a rice spoon, scoop and ladle. I have been using my cooker for about a month now and have no complaints so far. Even the design and colour is aesthetically pleasing. The stainless steel outer shell doesn't even leave streak marks. Very happy.
