5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product that does need a little experiementation to find the perfect setting depending on your microwave and rice.
Works exactly as described.

Some things to consider though.

Rinse the rice before cooking or you will get a very sticky rice.

Consult the charts and times and consider those as nothing more than general guidance.

Good buy, quick and easy to use and makes rice and other grains so much easier to cook.
The dish however stains easily but that's a minor issue, very happy with purchase.

This review is from: Lékué 1000 ml Rice and Grain Cooker, Green (Kitchen & Home)
Works exactly as described.

Some things to consider though.

Rinse the rice before cooking or you will get a very sticky rice.

Consult the charts and times and consider those as nothing more than general guidance.

I've had a good laugh at some of the people that have reviewed this product as they clearly have no common sense what so ever.
My microwave is a 900watt model. The guidelines are based on an 800watt microwave.

So I added slightly more water and ran for 1 min less. Worked almost perfectly. But I forgot to rinse the rice so it was a bit sticky.
So you need to keep an eye on the results and I suggest stopping the microwave and carefully inspecting at least 3 mins before the microwave finishes. To see how it is progressing. You will need to experiment with common sense how long it takes and how much water you need to use for a given rice type. Then you will have your perfect setting. Also, depends on how you like your rice. I like it slightly over cooked.

If you think you can just look at a chart, measure and switch on, you might be very disappointed. As some have found.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, if expensive, rice cooker with a few points to note., 27 Nov 2014
This review is from: Lékué 1000 ml Rice and Grain Cooker, Green (Kitchen & Home)
This rice steamer works well, though there are a couple of things to note.

(1) The manual gives exact ratios of water/rice/cooking time for various types of rice, based on an 800W microwave and generic rice types (bomba, basmati, etc) and grains (quinoa, wheat, bulgur etc). However, these should be seen as guidelines, and you will almost certainly need to juggle the times and quantities a bit according to the type of rice you are using and the power of your microwave. Don't take these ratios as gospel.

As a basic rule of thumb, whatever rice you are using, you need to check that you are using 1 measure of rice to 2 measures of water, or cover the grains with one inch of water. Grains like wheat may need 1 measure of grain to 3 or 4 measures of water. The cooking time will vary, shorter for white rice, basmati rice or any other rice which cooks fairly quickly on the hob (around 10 - 12 minutes) and a little longer for rice which needs more time on the hob, such as bomba, paella or risotto rice.

(2) Check half-way through the cooking time and stir if necessary, add water if it is boiling dry.

(3) Although this Lékué cooker is good, it's neither cheap nor unique -- at around £22, it's twice the price of some microwave steamers, and up to five times the price of the cheapest ones. Search for "microwave rice cooker" to get an idea. The Kitchen Craft Rice Steamer is currently around £7, a third of the price Kitchen Craft Microwave 1.5L Rice Cooker and works very reliably.

Having said that, the Lékué product is trendy and well-made, simple to use, and could (if you're not too snobbish) go straight from the microwave to your table without raising eyebrows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Rice Cooked Well, 10 April 2014
This review is from: Lékué 1000 ml Rice and Grain Cooker, Green (Kitchen & Home)
The main benefit with this item is the hassle free way it cooks rice, it looks good and its non spill lid that flips over to become a drainer is clever. Another clever design by Lekue.

I just received and tried it today. Its structure is quite simple, but it works well so far. No splash and the microwave keeps clean.
