This is excellent.

Do read the instructions that come with it!

I'd have appreciated a better instruction leaflet.

It gives cooking times for various grains, but I only want it for cooking rice. The instructions give the time for White Rice, but not for Brown or Wholegrain Rice, which Is a shame.

I found that whatever rice I cooked, I used the same amount of rice and water (250g Rice and 600ml Water) - the only variation was in the cooking time. White Rice takes 10-12 Minutes, as stated on the instructions, BUT.....Brown Basmati Rice takes 23 Minutes. My Microwave is 1000 Watts - if your Microwave is a lower Wattage, you'll need to allow more cooking time.

I really like this steamer, but I do wish Sistema would include a better instruction leaflet with these Microwave Steamers!

Superb. I've made coriander and lime rice, lemon and coriander rice, pilau rice, coconut rice and they have all been perfect.
As a novice rice cooker - all my hob attempts have been useless, I started by buying a bag of basmati rice from ASDA and just gauging how long it generally takes and how much water is required. For a one person portion you probably need a bit more water as more will evaporate in the steamer but more than that it is 1 part water, 2 parts by volume of water. I don't even rinse my rice and it doesn't stick together - especially if I use stock instead of plain water. You need to experiment slightly with your rice and your microwave....the beauty about this is there is no babysitting - it's done when it goes ping(leave it for about 10 mins before stirring, you can check it but just don't stir). If it seems a bit wet give it another 2 mins, otherwise let it sit with the lid on for a bit. My two portion basmati rice(1 measuring cupful) takes around 14 minutes to cook in my 800w microwave.

I've used two different basmati rices and Thai jasmine rice - all are superb. One of my 'game changer' devices - would buy another in heartbeat.

I don't know how it compares to other microwave rice cookers but I know it beats my old tefal 8in1 hands down. I have a small microwave and it fits perfectly, snug but perfect.

Quick tip - there are two lids;an inner lid and a final clip-on outer lid. The holes in the two lids are not supposed to align(the water would just evaporate out otherwise), you are meant to have the holes so they don't align, ideally at 90 degrees, as the outer lid is supposed to condense the liquid back in.

I don't know about stainage as I haven't used turmeric in my pilau rice(I do everything on the hob as usual and then tip it into the rice cooker to cook the rice) but if it did stain and I didn't like it I would buy another for my none staining rice - it's that effective and cheap.

I don't usually write very negative reviews but this has to be hands down the worst product I have EVER bought in my entire life, and I have bought many things in my lifetime...
I used this about 3 times. On the last use it completely melted in my microwave nearly setting it on fire and burning my kitchen down in the process. This product is a complete hazard. My kitchen smelt like burnt plastic for days.
I would like to mention that I read the reviews before hand and made sure I thoroughly read the instructions. Despite putting in the right quantities for the right time it still melted. I am not impressed and would not recommend to anyone. I was hoping to use this product a lot since I am about to have a baby and thought it would be convenient - what a waste of money! I am so annoyed!
What's more- amazon (the seller in this case) does not give me the option for a refund on this order! What a con! If anyone knows how I can go about getting a refund please reply/comment on my review.thank you so much.
O and one more thing - when it originally came it did not come sealed in anything and the pressure component was missing, so I had to return it for a replacement- make of that what you will....

I have had items from this brand before, but I am really disapointed with this one.
I bought it after having read the brilliant reviews, however half of the item melted on the first use, even when I put it for less time tan what it was advised in the instructions.

I thought about buying this rice steamer for quite sometime as I really wanted an electric one. The first time I used it I was a bit aprehensive, however I put 2 cups of long grain rice and 500ml of water into it. I them put it into my 800W microwave to cook for 10 minutes and then left to rest for 5 minutes. The rice was perfectly cooked. I cannot believe it only cost me £7.00!!

This steamer is excellent - we replaced our old steamer after 10 years of use because it eventually became brittle. This looks like it will easily outlive the old one because the plastic is thicker in the right places, and there's less parts. Steamers are an incredibly good way of cooking rice without any hassle.

Use is incredibly simple - weigh out the rice and add water, then bung it in the microwave for 10-12 minutes checking halfway that all is OK.

For small portions you'll want to use less water - 80-100g of basmati rice needs about 400ml and 11 minutes.

It can be a bit tricky to get the inner cover off without hurting yourself - be warned. Other rice steamers have easier ways to do this but this isn't a big deal for the steamer.

Perfect rice every time!
