Not worth the price tag

published

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.

Purchased in April 2020 at buffalo for A$429.00.

Not durable

published

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.

Purchased in November 2018 for A$350.00.

Love it! Especially good for family with kids

published

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.

Excellent product. Wife best helper! No regret!

published

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.

Yes you can cook brown rice with it. Water has to be more than normal rice. I normally measure 1 cup of brown rice to 1.5 cup of water.
