Great for healthy eating!I am trying to eat healthier and this rice cooker and vegetable steamer is a great easy way to do that! I have always cooked my rice on the stove in the past and my veggies in the microwave and this steamer makes the process significantly easier! Everything you would need to cook both rice and vegetables is included and you can do both at the same time! A grilled chicken breast, steamed rice and some steamed carrots mixed with broccoli is my new favorite meal and this rice cooker is a great addition to my kitchen appliances! I'd recommend this rice cooker to anyone! I received a sample of this product in change for a honest and unbiased review.

4.5 stars!! Wonderful little rice cooker!This rice cooker is perfect for a small family of 2-4 people. It's simple to use and easy to clean. As long as you follow the directions to rinse your rice before cooking, you should not have any "bubble over" mess. Rinse the rice until the water pours out clear. Also, use the measuring cup provided for the rice. This cup is different from your typical measuring cup. Inside the inner pot, there are measuring lines so you know the amount of rice/water ratio. I found that it is a good idea to stir the rice one time around the 15 minute mark just to keep the bottom rice from getting a little over cooked.
To start the unit after the contents are placed into the inner pot, plug in the unit and push down the "cooking lever" located on the face of the pot. Once the rice is cooked, the unit switches to the "warming" mode. The only way to turn the rice cooker "off" is to unplug it. The power cord is a little on the short side, but it wasn't a drawback for me. The instruction booklet covers the needed information, but I wish it included some recipes. There was only a timing guide to steam various veggies.
I give this Oster rice cooker a 4.5 star rating!! Its a great little rice cooker.

Worked Like a Charm First Time Out!Very pleased with this little steamer/rice cooker. Got it for a steal during the holiday sale and having used much higher-end rice cookers wasn't sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised at how quickly it cooked 2 cups of brown rice (under 40 minutes!) -- was so fast that I barely had time to get my chicken breasts and veggies steamed before the rice was done! It did a great job steaming veggies and thoroughly cooked the meat. I recommend using a little cooking spray on the steamer tray to prevent meat from sticking. For foolproof results, it is important to use the included measuring cup and water levels inside the pot, though you will probably want to experiment, depending on your preference for wetter/drier consistency. (For instance, normally the ratio of water to rice is 2:1 for brown rice, but no so using this little cooker.) Also, it is really helpful to let the rice sit for 10 minutes even after it switches from 'cook' to keep warm' without lifting the lid to complete the cooking process before fluffing with a fork.
The 'Keep Warm' feature kept the rice at a nice piping hot temperature for a few hours. Had no problem with rice burning on the bottom. I stirred it every so often. It started getting a little crusty on the bottom which I personally like. Just don't leave it on the 'keep warm' setting for hours on end if there is not much rice in the pot or moisture in the rice and it will do fine.
It is the perfect size for singles or couples, but for more than 3 people you probably want to go with an 8 or 10 cup size. I've been looking to find a replacement rice cooker at a reasonable price for quite a while and glad I waited. This totally fits the bill!

Such a blessingThe Oster rice cooker is a dream. I thought it would be bulkier and more of a hassle in the kitchen but it's not. It's petite and that doesn't affect its capabilities at all. Having the built in steamer is fantastic. My rice consistently tastes amazing & I can let it take care of my vegetables too which is so convenient for a lazy cook like me. Totally recommend it! You won't be disappointed. As a disclaimer - I did receive this product on the condition that I'd write a review. I absolutely DID NOT have to give it positive feedback but the rice cooker totally deserves it! 5 stars!

Makes good riceI just received my new Oster Rice Cooker from Sears and had to use it at dinner. I made 2 "Oster cups" of rice according to the instructions. The rice came out good and I liked being able to forget about the timing and cooking of the rice. I allowed the cooker to remain on in the warming mode with the lid on, in case we wanted seconds. Later, when I put away the leftovers, the rice on the surface was beginning to get a translucent look and the rice on the bottom of the pot was crusting together and turning brown. I wanted to be able to have warm sticky rice available for after the meal and even for a dessert or evening snack, so this is a big disappointment for me. I love Oster products and have several in my kitchen, so this product's performance surprised me. I am considering returning the cooker and finding one that will keep my rice warm without burning it.

Wonderful Rice CookerWonderful Rice Cooker - I had the privilege to try this rice cooker and absolutely loved it. It's very easy to use. You just use the measuring cup that comes with it to measure out your rice and then fill with water to the water line in the pot based on how many cups you are making. Give it a stir, out the lid on and press down the cook button and that's it. It was ready in no time and cooked perfectly. No burned rice. My family looks forward to our rice dinners since we've had this product. I received this rice cooker as a sample to try it out and love it!

Oster 6 cup Rice CookerThe Oster 6 cup rice cooker is great! It is a quick and easy way to cook your rice. It is visually appealing and looks nice in my kitchen counter. This one is red and has a great accent to my kitchen as well. The rice cooker is very simple to use. It includes a rice measuring cup and already has lines in the inner pot for your water level depending on the portion size of rice you are cooking. All you have to do is push the button up to start the cooking process. Please note I was given the rice cooker as gift to review this item.

Breaking News: It cooks rice!I am a big fan of rice, but I am a terrible cooker of rice. This rice cooker did exactly what I hoped it would: cook my rice well. I liked the simplicity of the cooker, and without a lot of bells and whistles, I expect it to hold up to repeated use for a while. The cooker doesn't take up a lot of space on my counter, so I can leave it out and use it any time I want. I took a star off because when it is plugged in it is always on (either warming or cooking). I'd prefer it if I could turn it off while it is plugged in
