Excellent rice cooker that can also double as pressure or slow cookerIt is an excellent rice cooker, but for the price, it would need to be. It is a 5 star rice cooker, but I docked one star for price, flexibility as a multicooker and the documentation.
There are many general purpose cookers that are able to cook rice, but many do so by cooking for a fixed time, rather than cooking for however long it takes until the right moisture level drops to the ideal level, which is how dedicated rice cookers like this one cook rice.
The result is that while many multicookers can cook rice, for those that work on a fixed... Read moretime it is often a little "hit and miss" making their cooking of rice a compromise. While this cuckoo unit is perfect at cooking rice, but somewhat limited with the compromise being the use for other other functions. The use of induction makes heating very uniform. Limitations are those like, when used as a general pressure cooker, the rate of reduction of water is that optimised for cooking rice, which is a little higher than ideal for many other foods. There are a variety of programs for cooking different types of rice and in different ways, with an option for high speed rice cooking and cooking both with and without pressure cooking. Then there are slow cook and generic pressure cooking as well as chicken soup and baby food modes. Construction is very high quality. The bowl is much more solid than typical for a rice cooking bowl or the inner bowl of an electric pressure cooker, and has a non-stick surface. Many people don't like non-stick surfaces, the bowl only ever reaches a very low temperature and there is no sear function, so the biggest risks of non-stick are eliminated. One limitation is the documentation, which may be clearer in the original Korean, but is not great in English, and finding an online version is a challenge.
