Pro Neat design
The square design is a unique one. The build is made from stainless steel which adds to the look and the square design, its small size, and a retractable power cord makes it easier to store.
Pro Keeps the meal warm after it is done cooking
After it detects that the food is done, it automatically switches to the “keep warm” mode. The cooker will keep the food warm until you actually want to eat it. But look out not to leave rice for too long in this mode, as it will dry out.
Pro Can also steam food while cooking
The optional steaming pot allows cooking such foods like fish, meat, or vegetables during the time when the rice is cooking. It saves energy and time.
Pro Small to medium sized
Given the compact design, it only has room for 4 cups of uncooked rice. This, generally, is enough only for one to three people.
Pro Easy to clean
All parts are removable and dishwasher safe. It also has a non-stick cooking bowl. Combined, these features make cleaning very easy.
Con Water tends to overflow with the glass lid
The water can overflow during cooking if the glass lid is on, making cleaning more cumbersome than necessary. To prevent this, use the steaming pot instead of the glass lid to seal the cooker.
Con Doesn’t always cook perfectly
You can follow the instructions on what ratios to use and still have unsatisfactory cooked rice. It is best to experiment yourself with the water and rice ratios to achieve the best results.
Con Cannot be turned off
You have to plug the power cord in order to switch it on or off. After it is done cooking, it will stay on the “keep warm” mode indefinitely, potentially ruining the food and expending energy if left on for far too long.
Con Doesn’t have many features
Despite its price, it doesn’t have many additional features, like a timer or multiple cooking settings to choose from.
