does exactly what it is supposed to

published

this machine cooks perfect rice! we have used it at least weekly for the past year to cook both white and brown rice. you can select normal or quick cook and different types of rice. quick cook white rice takes about 25 minutes and does a pretty good job. it plays a tune when your rice is cooked and cleaning the machine is fairly straight forward. very happy and I would definitely recommend!

Just love this machine cooks rice perfectly and you can preset and leave and it also has a warm function, just love it. I had a no name brand before and it did not perform but this one is perfect.

Cooks perfect rice in a reasonable amount of time

published

This is my first higher end rice cooker. It cooks the perfect rice in a short amount of time. The extra functions are handy too like cooking brown rice. I like how it comes with a cook book which I have cooked desserts with.

Purchased in September 2019 at Harvey Norman for A$120.00.

Great rice cooker

published

As an Asian and cook rice at least 4 days in a week, I would recommend others buying this rice cooker. The price is reasonable. It's easy to cook with the right amount of water by using the measuring cup provided. It is easy to detach the inner lid and the non-stick pot and clean them after using.

Good product

published

I had to experiment a bit with how much water for how much rice, but once I knew I had to wash the rice before and stay with the water a little bit under the lines, it was perfect. I'm terrible at cooking rice, quinoa or risotto for example. Who knew you could mess that up, but I literally have no talent for this. So the Philips rice cooker is really convenient for me, even though it takes a while. Makes perfect fluffy rice and nice smooth risotto. I also didn't know until recently that you can actually open the rice cooker at any point during the cooking process and steer or put other ingredients in. So I've been using it every week.

Dry dry dry food

published

really regret buying this gadget. Everything I cooked in it turned out too dry when cooked with the pre-set time setting.
Unfortunately it does not give me the option to manually adjust the time which would be pretty handy.
The quinoa cooking time is pre-set to 45mins, it was totally dry and burnt in parts, I found it was cooked perfect at the 25mins re-heat setting instead.
It could be such a good gadget if it allowed for manual time adjustments but sadly this is not the case.
Don't waste your money on this one unless you want a 'learning experience'.

Does exactly what it's meant to do.

I love this rice cooker. It comes with a great recipe book. Cooks amazing rice and other items, I love the pre set function. I can wake up to cooked porridge in the mornings. I've even baked cakes in it and slow cooked in it. Very versatile appliance, bought in on sale at TVSN for $89.00. Great price for a fantastic product.

I don't think you can it seems to be fixed, I always wipe my down after every use and I use it every week, and it stays clean. Sorry can't help any further maybe contact Philips themselves if you really need to pull it apart.

Thanks I worked it out no thanks to the illustrations. It does not show that you have to pull on the plastic lugs at the bottom of the lid. I was a bit reluctant to do this as I thought I might break them but after finding a picture of someone doing this on google I realised it was the only way to remove the inner lid.
