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!
