My previous rice cooker of 20yrs have finally given up its soul.
Shipping from Amazon was very fast.
Construction: It's a cute little unit with all rounded corners. Seems very well build, no rattle, no cheap part. The stainless steel warmer is non stick and really heavy (ie no cheap aluminium wall) and retains the heat well. Standard small plastic measuring cup.
Instructions: relatively easy, however deal with some things that are only available in Japan (eg. recipe given says to put 'the seven herbs of spring' (what are those??). This thing cooks rice, so in the end not rocket science to figure it out.
Cooking: PERFECT rice every time, whether it's sushi, basmati, scented long grain. Even tried steel cut oats (needs 1.5-2 times more water). Great to have the delay timer cooking. I would soak the oat overnight then start the cooking at 4am to have a great hot just cooked breakfast. Once done it beeps a silly tune but it's cute just like the look of the machine.
It's just the right quantity for the 5 of us.
Very happy. Hopefully will last another 20yrs.
