I am very impressed with this rice cooker. Many of the reviews for other brands were not very encouraging. I thought that Black and Decker has never let me down, so I gave it a shot. I measure exactly as directed on the instructions and the rice comes out perfect. I even substitute broth for the water and add my own blends of spices based on my cravings that particular evening. The cleanup is fantastic. I am going to buy one for my daughter and grandson this Christmas. We have used this cooker about 12 times now and the results are consistent. Please note the smaller size of this unit if you cook very large amounts of rice at one time.
I should have read the reviews before I bought this. My old roommate had the 3-cup version that I used a lot and it worked fine all year, but she took it with her when she moved out so I bought a new 6-cup version for myself... and it stopped working after ONE use! I'm very disappointed because this product is actually really good and easy to use. I just wish mine worked properly.
I've been using this for a couple of months now and I am so glad that I have an essential like this rice cooker at home. It is small enough for two people (though it can make for a little more than 2 people). It's compact and convenient. It's also lightweight. The rice comes out perfectly and I don't need to be mixing it unlike with other appliances. It comes with a spoon, a measuring cup and a sieve. It's super easy to make rice in this and you can even make veggies. I'd definitely recommend this to everyone.
I bought the cooker 2 months ago and it has been great. It is a good size for 2 people and aesthetic in our home. Unfortunately, the non-stick has started to wear off and we are getting more and more rice lost at the bottom of the cooker. Is it possible to get just a bowl and steamer parts ordered? I have been looking around and can't find any!
There is no way to cook 6 cups of rice the side of the bowl says 3 cups of liquid so 6 cup will not work what a waste of money my last black n Decker was great for 15 years. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Bought this yesterday. Tried today with smallest amount of water and rice per instructions. Kept boiling over so had to prop lid open and stir frequently. Instead of 18 minute cook time it took 35 minutes. So mushy it was inedible. Would give this -5 stars if I could. Do not buy this!!
