Pro Can prepare food for multiple people
The rice cooker is pretty large, especially for its price. It can hold up to 10 cups of uncooked rice which will become 20 cups of cooked rice. This amount is large enough for around seven people.
Pro Can cook a lot of different foods
On top of cooking various types of rice, it can also cook pasta, whole grains, beans and even use the steaming option for vegetables, meat or fish. A lot can be done with just this one appliance.
Pro Meals can be prepared in advance
The timer can be set for up to 15 hours, meaning, it will wait for up to 15 hours before starting the cooking process. This way you can plan your dinner in the morning, set the timer, leave, and have a meal ready just when you arrive home.
Pro Automatically keeps food warm
When it is done cooking, it will automatically shift into “Keep warm mode” to keep your food warm until you want to actually eat it. Be advised that rice shouldn’t be kept in this mode for longer than ~10 hours, as it can get really dry.
Pro Interface is easily understood and used
The interface is quite clear and very easy to use. The buttons are obvious with their functions and the predefined settings make cooking even easier.
Pro Easy to clean
The inner bowl has a non-stick surface and is dishwasher safe. The inner lid can also be removed but has to cleaned manually.
Pro Good for white and brown rice
Since there's a dedicated brown rice cooking feature, you don't have to pre-soak brown rice yourself.
Con Best used with only white rice
Brown and long-grain rice are not as finely cooked as regular white rice. This is expected since the predefined settings do not include different types of rice other than white rice.
Con Foods cannot be "fine-tuned"
The cooking settings are predefined and cannot be changed, thus making it impossible to fine tune any food with very specific temperatures and cooking times.
Con Short power cord
The power cord is just around 28 inches long. It can really limit the places where you could keep it.
