Review: Size and Design

This size 5.5 cups is perfect for family of 4. This model is compact and light weight which doesn’t take lots of space in your kitchen and makes it easy to carry and store it in the kitchen cabinet when not in use.

Review: Menu display buttons

The simplified menu display makes it easy to operate.

The menu display is large and easy to push. The red light turns on when the menu is selected but it does not beep. It does not beep when the rice is cooked. The red light on the Keep Warm button turns on when cooked.

Review: Cleaning

The inner vent cap needs to be detached and cleaned after each use. The inner plate is not detachable so use the clothes to wipe off the residue.

The gaps around the inner pot collects the residue and dried rice after each use. Use the clothes to clean.

Review: Cooked Rice

I cooked this rice (BOTAN brand). It makes Japanese sticky rice. This can be purchased at the local Walmart stores and the Asian grocery stores.

I cooked 3 cups this time and the rice is cooked perfect every time thanks to the built-in fuzzy logic technology!

This model is equipped with the fuzzy logic which is capable of performing the detailed work that could only be done by human intuition and experience.

It can make fine adjustments to the cooking temperature and heating time to cook perfect rice every time.

Read this article to learn more details about the fuzzy logic.

Each rice grain is cooked perfect and fluffy.

Review: Keep Warm function

The maximum time of the keep warm function is 5 hours, however, I do not recommend to leave the leftover rice in the rice cooker for 5 hours as the rice hardens a bit and gets dried out in some spots (as shown below).

I recommend to freeze the leftover rice to keep the freshness.

This model does not have the delay timer function, however, it is perfect for you if you are looking for a reasonably priced and easy to operate rice cooker!
