Why use a rice cooker?
Cooking with a Crock-Pot rice cooker couldn’t be easier. Simply choose your preferred cuisine, add your favourite ingredients and serve up a home-cooked meal that tastes like you’ve spent all day in the kitchen. Rice cookers are not just for plain rice dishes, you can create all sorts of delicious recipes, including paella, risotto, pasta and rice or oat-based desserts. Ideal for people with a busy lifestyle, rice cookers cook a variety of recipes in less than 30 minutes.
Crock-Pot ® CKCPRC6039 1.8L Sauté Rice Cooker: Sauté-in-the-pot rice cooker for cooking a host of different dishes, including traditional rice-based dishes.
Upgrade your basic rice cooker to this 1.8L Sauté rice cooker, which has all the functions you would expect from a traditional rice cooker, and comes with a non-stick bowl, measuring cup and rice paddle, along with an automatic keep-warm function which gives you perfectly cooked rice in 15-20 minutes. In addition, this product has an in-the-pot sauté function which allows you to brown off meats and vegetables, as well as cook a host of different tasty dishes that maybe you didn’t think were possible to make in a rice cooker.
The 6039 rice cooker has 1.8L capacity which can cook up to 20 cups of cooked rice. This size of rice cooker is therefore ideal when serving a side dish or meal for four to five people. This product includes a measuring cup for your rice and water, so you can always cook perfect rice in the right quantity depending on your needs.
The 6039 Sauté Rice Cooker has a fully independent sauté function built into the unit. There is a flat heat plate contained inside the unit which when turned on quickly heats the bottom of the non-stick pot. Simply add some oil and your ingredients and stir until they brown off and seal in all the juices and flavours. The in-the-pot sauté function allows you to cook a host of different recipes all in one pot, including paella, risotto, pasta dishes and also rice and oat-based desserts.
Auto keep-warm function
After measuring out your rice and placing it into the non-stick pot with the correct amount of water, it only takes 15-20 minutes to perfectly cook your rice on the one cook setting. Cooking in a kitchen environment can get very busy and it is often very difficult to judge serving times. With the Crock-Pot rice cooker there's no need to worry as the auto keep-warm function keeps your rice warm and ready to serve when you are.
Easy cleaning and storage
After using the 6039 Rice Cooker, the removable pot has an excellent quality non-stick finish making it easier to wash up after use. The product also contains a detachable power cord which can be removed and easily stored in the pot after use.

Like the design, it actually sits quite nicely in the kitchen.
There is an instruction book with a few recipe examples based on American `cup' measurements. Alas, it is very poorly written and the recipes need to be interpreted into plain English with knowledge of how to cook with the pot and a proper understanding of how it works - which is not well explained in the book.
So then: How Does It Work?
The cooker has three heat functions:
1. rice cooking, when the paddle switch has been depressed (yellow light)
2. keep the rice warm, all the time when neither sautéing nor `rice cooking' (green light)
3. sauté, when the push button is depressed (red light).
Since one of these modes is always active, it is necessary to switch off the mains at the wall or unplug the lead when the cooker is not in use.
The automatic end of `rice cooking' depends on the temperature of the bottom of the inner pot suddenly rising, typically as the last of the water is taken up by the rice, or if it boils dry - a useful safety feature. There is no timer for the `rice cooking' function; it just keeps on boiling at the full power until dry and is no longer being cooled by the boiling water.
The sauté function merely bypasses the thermostat, and applies the full power all the time until the sauté button is pressed again to release it.Read more ›
(If it helps convince you, I know a lot of Chinese people in the UK and have visited China a couple of times - a rice cooker is an essential bit of kit, so learn from the masters...)
This cooker is big. If you're on your own or cooking for two, find a smaller cooker (if not on Amazon then at a Chinese supermarket) because you can't really use this for single or double portions.
You put the rice in, add water up to the line, turn it on and wait. After a while the cooker is finished and keeps your rice warm for you until you're ready. (If you're using it in stir fry, do it the day before and let it go cold).
You can use the cooker to make various rice dishes, adding ingredients to create a jumbalaya or congee. It's really handy for doing large portions of rice for the family or for guests. The only downside is the size so either make sure you've got the space for it, or can store it away. Its black finish makes it more attractive than some of the more clinical devices that are out there, which look like they belong in a lab.
So if you like rice, or want to eat more as part of your low-fat diet, this is a great gadget to have.
on the first day of use,i just tried to cook 2 cups of rice.after 10 mins, water started splattering to such an extent that it started going into my plug points.it also made lots of unpleasant sounds.i read similar problems on many other amazon reviews but ignored it..i definitely made a mistake.thank god amazon with its excellent service agreed for me to return the product..believe me i have used at least 3 other rice cookers.none of them have this type of problem..this is hugely defective product..pls do not buy..
So onto the rice. I was expecting that you would dump rice in the bowl, add water, switch it on and it would tell you when it was ready. No. You do add rice and water, but fifteen minutes after you switch it on you have to stir the rice. It's not a major issue, but when it is sold as automatic you don't think you would have to do that.
Cooking the rice could be a guessing game too. The recipe book clearly states that for every one cup of rice (using the cup provided) add 1 - 1 ½ cups of water, but for stickier rice add more water, for fluffier rice add less water and for brown rice add more water. What it doesn't say is roughly how much more water or how much less water. Yes, I do know that it's down to personal taste, but it's going to take a lot of experimenting to get the rice how you like it.
Onto the recipes in the booklet, well, they may as well have not bothered. There are eight recipes, most of them being rice based. One of them for rice pudding is a real mess on. I don't know who came up with it but there are much more simpler recipes out there.
But getting onto using the cooker. It is really easy to use, you add the rice, add the water, put it on, stir them wait for it to cook. Once the rice is cooked the keep warm facility kicks in. It will keep it warm until you unplug it, could be potential for burning here. The recipe book also tells you how you can reheat cold rice. All I will say is, if you do decide to reheat rice make sure it has really cooked through.
