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.

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 ›
Like the design, it actually sits quite nicely in the kitchen.
(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.
I tried several times to make some boiled rice and there were a number of issues.
- There is no automatic turn off. On my previous machine there is an automatic cut off, like a safety switch.
- The lid has a very loose fit, and under the rapid boil it has a tendency lift and rattle. Even though there is a vent the rapidity of the boil overwhelmed the outlet.
- There is no temperature control; it is on a full, flat-out, continuous rolling boil. This means that rather than simmering the rice/pasta it is boiled to paste (if you're not careful).
- There is a degree of rice water splatter due to the ill-fitting lid and the rapid boil. This needs to be wiped up before it dries as when it dries it becomes a problem.
- When the water boils down the rice can catch and burn.
The recipe section of the instruction book is very poor. There are recipes that end up almost completely inedible - I would advise against the rice pudding recipe. As I looked at each of the recipes I began to wonder if they had been tried and tested or were just somebody's best guess.
These machines are supposed to make life easier, they are supposed to allow you to sit down and have a minute to yourself rather than standing over a pan making sure that it doesn't boil dry. Except in this case you will need to stand over the cooker because of the rapid boil.
If you are using all the rings on your stove then this is worth using, but other than that I will be sticking to my faithful Breville 4-in-1 or a pan to make my rice.
