Good looking product, expensive versus alternatives
on 7 February 2015
I bought this product as our traditional, electric rice cooker is on it's way out and my mother raves about how fluffy microwave rice is from her cooker. I like sleek looking products - this one does loom nice compared to the alternatives but you do pay for it. It is basically a bowl with a little mound in the centre which distributes the rice around the edges, topped with a silicon lid with holes. I've only used it twice so far for jasmin rice - the cooking instructions are based on an 800w microwave so you need to adjust these if your microwave has a different power (mine is 700w). First attempt, rice was waaaaaay to wet. Second attempt, rice still too sticky. I'm hoping third time lucky. The silicon is a little annoying to clean the starchy residue from. I've rated this 3 star as I'm still not convinced that this product is worth the premium versus the alternatives considering the result is probably no better.
