INTRODUCTION Due to a bit of Christmas net shopping, I had a £10 gift voucher from Argos burning a hole in my pocket and needing to be used by February. As this is pretty soon, I racked my brains for something I needed, and I came up with this, as I always seem to run out of pots big enough for cooking fair amounts of rice, and my mum keeps on raving about how good rice cookers are. This particular model seems to be exclusive to Argos. It was half price at £9.99; they even gave me the penny back! I thought this worth reviewing as it's a gadget I've always fancied yet never been fully convinced of its merits. Since it's effectively free I can't go wrong, so is ... Read the complete review

INTRODUCTION A rice cooker is a self contained kitchen appliance used for cooking rice. It looks a bit like an oversized plastic hob (1.8 litre capacity), where the amount of rice you want to cook is filled in together with the apporiate amount of water, and with the use of electricity your rice is cooked. The Cookworks Rice cooker is made of white plastic, has a transparent glass lid, and it comes with a plastic cup and a spatula. The Cookworks Rice cooker costs £10-20 at Argos, depending if you get it while it on sale or for full price. THE UNIT IN USE The plastic cup that comes with the rice cooker can conveniently be used for measuring the amount ... Read the complete review

We do love our curry, chilli con carne and lots of other rice dishes in our house, so I don't quite know how it has taken me 3 years to invest in a rice cooker for my kitchen! I've insisted on using a saucepan and boiling water, which always ends up making a rice mess of my lovely halogen hob, but still I could not be swayed. Upon the delivery of my shiny new cooker, I decided to bite the bullet and invest some money in a rice cooker. I didn't want to spend too much in case I hated it so I decided to buy the cheapest one I could in Argos, which is how I ended up with the Cookworks Rice Cooker, and being on a half price offer, it only cost me £9.99. What did I have to ... Read the complete review

We have had this rice cooker for about 1-2 years now and I love it! We previously had a steamer which could steam vegetables and all sorts but we only really used it to steam rice. This rice cooker is much smaller and fits better into the fairly small kitchen I have. The max amount of rice it can cook is about 8-10 cups but 3-4 is more than enough for a few main course servings. The time to cook varies with how much you use but 3-4 cups takes about 15 minutes. All you do is put in the rice, add water and flick the cook switch. What's great about it, is that you don't have to worry about it as it cooks and then immediately switches on to the keep warm function ... Read the complete review

OK I know that rice cookers aren't necessarily a 'must have' item in everyone's kitchen but to be honest I'd be lost without mine because the whole family loves rice & it saves me so much time & mess. I cook a lot of stir-fries, Middle Eastern food, chilli & plenty of curries so I need to cook the perfect accompaniment to go with these - unfortunately though one of my daughters likes plain rice with peas whilst hubby & my older daughter like 'my crispy rice which is why I have 2 rice cookers. One is an old rather battered one from Iran whilst the other is a Cookworks product which I've had for a few years now but is still working ... Read the complete review
