Meant to be a reliable brand, broke down in less than 6 months
Purchased this Cuckoo Commercial Rice Cooker 35 Cup CR-3511 about 6 months ago, the hinge that connects the lid and the base is made from plastic. With regular opening and closing of the lid, the plastic made hinge is bound to be broken in no time. Considering the rice cooker was never dropped and slammed shut with any ruthless force, the inevitable happen in 5 to 6 months with the hinge cracked and gave in exposing the wires. I ended up putting the wires back into place and sit the rice cooker against the wall for extra support.
Upon calling Cuckoo Service centers in Sydney and Melbourne, both sites were taking no responsibility and warranty do not cover for such damage.

Cuckoo IH 10 Cup Cooker is awesome
Just bought the Cuckoo IH 10 Cup.
Fantastic machine. It’s super quiet (only venting steam at the end when it needs to depressurise), it cooks whole grains and glutinous rice perfect. Believe me it’s noise free!! It does talk a little when starting, ending and while making selections or to remind you if you haven’t locked the lid. I appreciate that. I make gelatinous stocks in my Cuckoo within 1-2 hours max for what would take me 6-12 in a normal pot. Best thing is you just set and forget. The Cuckoo keeps your food warm after cooking. I’ve com...
Purchased in March 2019 for $649.00.
The rice is too sticky
it sound like a steam train in my house.
Keep hearing chu chu chu sound, then it play a rock tune. Then it expulse all the steam in one loud CHU.
when finish it play cuckoo tune. CUCKOO!!!
My old tiger give me less sticky rice and better tase than this cuckooo !!
First things first. As an induction pressure rice cooker a Cuckoo appliance makes fantastic rice, is built very sturdy and is obviously quality. What you have to be aware of when buying the version sold in Australia is that the version you see on youtube is NOT what you are getting. Even though my CRP-HN1054F is the same model number shown it does NOT have English spoken menus even if it suggests that on the box. Korean only. It does not have Fry, Roast, Steam options on the menu system, instead it has more rice options (including Nu Rung J...i). The manual is very basic, a mediocre translation, and some things that are flat out wrong (such as in the recipes asking you to choose the Universal Steam button which doesn't exist). None of these things would be a problem if there was anywhere you could find this information out. Its not on Australian Cuckoo site nor anywhere else. Instead researching the product before buying sends you to US/UK Cuckoo information which is flat out not applicable in most cases. Buy this if you want a really great rice cooker, don't buy it if you want the multi-cooker pressure cooker with the options shown on youtube.
Love the cooker
The cocker arrived quickly but I found that a small part (the "over flow tube inside") was broken. I contacted Cuckoo Australia, but they said they only replace the part at their service centre in Clayton, which is far away from my home. I think they should have done better than that by sending the part to me. I love the cooker though, it's fast and the rice tastes better.

My first Cuckoo and I love it. Great for brown rice and multi cook.
Very good product purchased this 10 cup Electric Rice Pressure cooker after owning a smaller Cuckoo one for several years. The first few times that I made the rice, it came out a little sticky, but after adjusting the heat setting (as was recommended), the rice came out perfectly! I now make both brown and white rice it several times a week and have not had any problems with the quality. The Cuckoo rice pressure cookers give the rice a shiny texture and even if the rice is left in the unit overnight, in the warming mode, the rice remains fluffy and tastes as if you've just made it. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking to purchase another rice cooker. If you eat rice every day, this is the one yo want to buy!
The best rice cookers ever!
We have been buying Cuckoo rice cookers for the past 10 years and are now buying our third one. They do cook wonderful tasting rice cooked to perfection (alot better than my non-Korean made multi-cooker). Until now the language was in Korean (even though the speaking voice is cute but hard for those of us who do not speak Korean). The build is sturdy and strong. They do last a long time. However, we throw them away when the coating starts to peel off since these are carcinogenic. it would be great if cuckoo made the interior of stainless ...steel instead of using PFOA type materials. i am excited to get the new model because they include English menus and voiceover. I know I am getting a great product once again! The other drawback is the price but you get what you pay for I guess!
I bought from a Korean shop in Campsie, cost me $400 , after one year the touch screen failed. repaired under warranty , two things very annoying, I cleaned it regularly, it still make a messy when cook rice even only cook small amount and with recommended water level. Had a few times can not open the lid , after pressure is released fully , Last week the lid stuck again , spend 2 hour still failed to open it , I put it in the bin.
Perfect ! I am using the newest silver CHSS model...
I had different company rice cooker that didn't last long...
rice won't last long enough (after 8 hours or so rice become hard and really hard to eat)
this one. rice is just so delicious and yummy. Especially for brown rice. It becomes just really soft and easier to digest.
Finally in english!
I was looking for a rice cooker and was recommended the cuckoo brand by a korean friend. I bought the heritage model as it was the only model with an english menu and voice function. It looks great, like a little rice cooking terminator! There are various automatic cooking modes for different types of rice - looking forward to trying them all!
great design, cooks other food besides rice, amazing brown rice
it can be a bit heavy to store and take out everytime u want to cook rice, ok if you leave in one place in kitchen
I'm cuckoo for cuckoo.
This amazing rice cooker is my favourite kitchen appliances. The rice tastes fantastic when cooked in this cooker. As it is a pressure cooker too, it is good for stews, Chinese herbal soups, congee etc. The build quality is fantastic and the unit is very beautiful. The voice control is hilarious. I changed the language to English (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dqM12RqyXAM) and love the cuckoo song it plays lol. English instructions are available here : https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B41y-niPE9f8dEcwMkxyZ2Q5VEE/preview
Note that the butt...ons and display are Korean ( I bought it from Korea ), however this unit is very easy to use and I have no trouble using the Korean buttons even though I know zero Korean. It has a steam sterilization function for cleaning which works well. This is a top of the line rice cooker well worth the money. Design is fantastic. Voice control is fantastic. Rice tastes better. Very high build quality. English support from factory (Thank God for you tube).
Love it, worth the price tag.
My husband is Korean and we love to use Korean Products as we, well cook a lot of Korean food and eat a lot of rice.
1. This is a Pressure Cooker not just a Rice Cooker ( so the title should change)
It is Induction and cooks just about anything ( focused on asian foods) but i have cooked things like curry (japanese or Korean style) Mixed grain/ceral rices, Korean Stews and Jjims and much more but when cooking rice i recomend you was the rice in a sperate bowl as to prevent sractching, it also has a steamer so u can steam vegies dumplin...gs etc. Unlike most rice cookers western people have this keeps rice warm for 24 hr and dosent dry out, it has an auto wash function but never used it yet so i dont know how it works. It speaks, that is right speaks to you in Korean, English and Chinese ( though i never learnt how to set it as my husband and myself can speak Korean)
Questions & Answers
How long does your cuckoo take to cook 2 cups of white rice and which one do you have? Looking at the $330 ones
Its been a while since Ive used my Cuckoo as Im overseas but I think maybe 15-20 minutes. I have the largest one 10 cup Cuckoo (think I paid approx $700) and for versatility (cooking foods other than rice) I think its necessary. If you only want to cook rice and smaller volumes then I think the one you are looking at should be fine.
I just bought cuckoo rice cookers (6cups),but it is quite small for my family, can I change it to take (10 cups)?
