Advantages: turns off and keeps rice warm
Disadvantages: booklet gives bad info
I read many reviews for this when i was looking for a rice cooker and to be honest, even though i had already ordered it, i felt a bit put off by these reviews. after getting it home, i followed the booklet carefully and made my first lot of rice.
it burned the bottom, not just stuck together, but brown and burnt.
my first reaction was to put it in the box and take it back the next day, feeling foolish i hadnt listened to the other reviews i had read but my housemate said to give it another go as she had bad experiences with appliances on first use, just because it was the first use.
and i am so glad i listened to her
although you get a layer that congeals at the bottom, as you would the pan, the rice cooks perfectly everytime. for different rice varieties you may need to tweak the water a bit, but it comes with practise. and despite the layer that is at the bottom it is easy, with the provided spoon, to scrape all the good rice off and because the non stick is SO good, the layer just peels off so you can throw it in the bin. i havent used it for veg yet as i only bought it for rice. so, dont always believe the bad reviews, i love my rice cooker!
Summary: all in all a great rice cooker
