After using my friend's rice cooker a few times although not the same brand, I was inspired to purchased my own.

I have had it for two months now and I have no regrets buying this product. It has a chrome base but inside has a non stick bowl which you only need to lift out to wash it and glass lid.

As I have been cooking rice for quite a few years, I tend not measure it out. With experience you can judge the amount of rice yourself, - put the rice in the bowl, add water to cover by 1 inch or more depending on type of rice, add spices and vegetables as you wish and just leave it to cook by itself. Once in a while you just fluff it up with the provided spoon. Also it keeps the rice warm. This is my way of cooking rice though.

Frankly, I used it twice a week and hey! it is easy to clean and rice does not stick to the bottom.

Little tip, use a nob of butter or a tablespoon of olive oil.

The best reason to buy is that you get a 2 year guarantee. The lid handle on mine cracked, and the new one came the next day - no charge. Morphy Richards customer service is fantastic. I was not expecting it to break, but when it did, there was no problem at all. For peace of mind and a damn good product as well, I would recommned this. In fact, I would recommend any Morphy Richards product, if their support of this one is anything to go by. I have a bread maker as well, and an iron - but they haven't needed the 2 year guarantee, but its nice to know that its there

This Morphy Richards rice cooker is by far the best I've used. My tip here is to always ensure that there is a one inch layer of water covering the rice before turning on the cooker. The rice cooks perfectly and does not stick to the bottom. The cooker itself is very easy to clean and maintain. I also quite like the stainless steel finish. At £20 this is another fantastic deal on Amazon. You simply can't go wrong with this purchase.

This is a great product - as long as you spend a few minutes before hand rinsing the rice until no starch is left and the water runs clear through the rice under the tap. This makes ALL the difference as then you get no starch bubbling up and out of the lid while it cooks. You simply measure rice, rinse thoroughly, put on for 20 mins or so whilst you prepare rest of meal and its done with no effort perfectly every time. Reliable kitchen appliance if you like to eat rice often!

I have had mine for well over a year now and I think it is brilliant.

The rice cooks so much nicer than in a normal pan or boil in the bag. It can also be used for cooking pasta but I personally only use it for rice.

I disagree with the other reader, my husband works shifts so I often cook rice just for 1 person and it is enough for 1 person.

Would definitely recommend this product.

I have owned many rice cookers and this is one of the worst ones I have ever had. It is poor value given it's price. It will only cook decently if there is four cups of uncooked rice added, and this is enough to serve six people. It is useless for cooking one cup of rice because it ends up burning, even when I add extra water. Next time I will pay a bit more for a better quality cooker.

Ordered and received this item on the basis that I cook a lot of rice for myself. The item itself is large and practically requires its own cupboard for storage. Moreover it cooks a MINIMUM of four cups of rice at a time which can translate into a LOT of rice. Ideal if entertaining large groups or if you have a big family. Otherwise if you are looking for a compact unit which will cook smaller portions on an ad hoc basis then this is not the rice cooker for you... or me unless you want a freezer filled with cooked rice.

This is the second time I've had to write this review - the first one wasn't published.

Only buy this if you're a large family. What it doesn't tell you anywhere - unless you download the instruction book from the Kenwood site which I didn't - is that there is a MINIMUM quantity you can cook.

This is four cups of rice which the instructions suggest will serve FOUR people. However when I tried it out it cooked enough rice for SIX large portions or EIGHT normal sized portions. But I'm single and live alone. I just wanted something I could cook a single portion in without having to constantly monitor a saucepan on the hob. It's no use to me at all!

I've put it back in the box and tried to sell it at the office - no one was interested. I now have lots of cooked rice stored in the freezer...

I've voted one star since there isn't an option to vote no stars...

EDIT - now 2012 - I paid £19.95 for this - I see the price is now MUCH inflated on that!
