      I wanted to get a rice cooker to make it easier to multi-task in the kitchen. I figured I would get an inexpensive one, because how hard could it be to cook rice, right? Wrong.

      The basket of the cooker is made of heavy duty aluminum/steel.

      The basket is


      removable, but does not have a non-stick surface.

      Cleaning is made harder because the bottom center of the basket tends to cook a bit faster, causing the rice at the bottom of the basket to “cake” –almost to a burn.

      There is a hole in the cover of the cooker designed to ...


      • release heat to prevent overflowing.

        The cooker doesn’t overflow, but the flawed cover design causes the starched water in the cooker to spurt out from the sides and the hole at the top (and this is when the basket is only half full).

        So it would be wise to sit the cooker on

        a towel or cookie sheet to protect your countertops.

        The only good thing that I have experienced about this product is the price ($19.

        99) and the fact that it does produce cooked rice (just don’t scrape the bottom of the basket).

        I guess the old adage holds true that “you get what you pay for”.
