Product description

Product Description

Preparing the perfect rice can be difficult at times, but Tefal’s Cube Rice Cooker can give you a needed helping hand. The design means that it is easily storable and can fit neatly into corners, without wasting space.

The Cube Rice Cooker also has a steaming basket that can sit on top of the rice as it cooks or can be used as a steamer on its own. Although this product is a rice cooker, it can in fact cook many more foods including fish, vegetables, some puddings, grains such as bulgur wheat and couscous and even some soups. Recipes are available in the recipe book included, which also gives you guideline times to help you judge what food needs what time to cook.

I bought this because a review on another website claimed that the lid had a silicon seal, which I thought would keep the steam in. It has no seal. And the lid has three huge vent holes in it, so it pumps out a lot of steam (and starch, if you don't wash the rice well enough).
Nevertheless, I'm really pleased with it. It produces great rice, and is perfect for two (biggish) portions.
You do need to add much, much more water than is stated in the instructions. I use 750ml to 220g of rice, which is more than twice the recommendation. This means that if you're cooking more than two portions, you'll need to use so much water that it'll almost certainly boil over through the vent holes.
As another reviewer said: not big enough for a large family.

Very good cooker. My only comment would be that the glass cover construction leaves a small gap between the glass and the stainless steel rim. I don't know as I have not had it long enough but I suspect that starch may build up in this gap unless it is cleaned properly after use. I would have thought that the manufacturer would have spotted this during product trials. A good cooker nontheless

Tefal RK400915 Cube Rice Cooker: It works as a rice cooker, but not as well as some Japanese brands (which are a lot dearer). It has good looks but the lid has 3 big steam holes, not sure that's absolutely necessary cos I prefer keeping the steam & heat in during when it's in 'Warming' mode.

The design is special and nice compared to those traditional type of rice cooker. Overall it works well and won't take too long to cook the rice but it would be good if the lid design could improve for easy cleaning.

Very chic looking cooker and since Tefal made it should be good quality. But could not find aywhere mentioned in the internet the size of this cooker in litres (even inquiring with the Amazon guys did not help). As I opened the parcel-to my horror I found the size of this cooker was 1.4 litres (a bit small for what we use - 1.8 litres). "8 cups of rice serving 16 people" is sort of misleading. If a family eats rice predominantly (not as a side dish) then this cooker will cook for about 4 - 5 adult people only. What a pity as I have to return this, as I live in a joint family....Damn!!!!!

Quite a unique looking rice cooker.
Bought it because we thought it would look nicer in our kitchen than a round one and it does.
Good quality.
Can take 8 scoops of rice.
Dimensions approximately 24cm cubed (not including the handles)

Cons:
Does create a lot of steam.
On switch stick sometimes.
A little expensive.

All in all we would buy it again.

By MJ on 14 May 2011
We bought this rice cooker about 1 month ago. We discovered that if you cook 1 cup of rice, it comes out with a hard crust at the bottom. We now have to cook at least 2 cups of rice each time (storing 1 cup for the next day, not ideal I know). Even then, a small amount of rice will have a hard crust on.

Use it 2/3 times a week. Rice comes out perfect if you follow the measurements. I like mine a little soft so I measure 1 above what is stated. The shape is stylish. Looks good and the square is easier to store, sits flush against the wall on the counter top.
