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 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.
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!
