Saw someone’s review said the cooker will burn the rice, that’s because you didn’t put enough water in. Saw someone said the water will spilt all over the floor, that’s because you put too much rice and water in.1 cup of rice with 1.5 cup of water. leave 20% space in the pot to avoid the water spilt out, that’s the correct way to cook.I’ve been using it for almost one year, no any issue happens so far.it’s small, good for one or two persons.

I was so excited after reading the instructions for this rice cooker by Aroma, who makes an amazing variety of different cookers, that this one actually calls for different amounts of water depending on whether you are cooking white or brown rice. Hello, don’t the rest of the manufactures get that there really is a difference? Brown rice requires more liquid to cook properly. Do yourself a huge favor and be sure to follow the directions and rinse the rice thoroughly. I cannot emphasize this particular instruction enough, because it really does make a difference and not only prevents spill over of liquid but also keeps the rice from burning or sticking to the bottom of the cooking vessel. Another huge hint is to add a teaspoon of cooking oil per two measured cups of dry rice. I use safflower oil, because it doesn’t affect the flavor of the rice, plus it’s the same oil I use in the wok.This is indeed a small little cooker, good for only one or two people, especially if you are cooking brown rice where the maximum amount of uncooked rice is 2 cups, resulting in 4 cups cooked. Since we are now empty-nesters, this is perfect my husband and me.I made 2 cups of brown rice in about 40 minutes last night and 4 cups of brown rice in 45 minutes today. Both batches of rice came out perfect! Then I let the unit cool off completely and made 4 more cups of rice and steamed frozen haricot vert during the last 10 minutes of cook time. OMG(osh!) When we order in Thai or Chinese food, we will never have a need to order rice again. This little wonder cooks it up in the time it takes for delivery.Update 12/23/16: so still very much in love with this little rice cooker! I think this has been the best, bar none, appliance I have purchased in a while. This little wonder just cooks it’s little heart out! It makes perfect rise every time. Again, the real key is to rinse the rice.Update 09/12/17: Still awesome!!!

I hesitated to get this because I saw some reviews about how this “ruins walls” and “burns/ruins rice”… it’s a steamer. it makes steam. keep that in mind when you have it cooking and don’t place it close to the wall/under shelves in the kitchen and just set a timer, and unplug it when the time is up and you won’t have any problems.Seriously no reason not to get this. it’s perfect for 1-2 people. Steams veggies perfect, and I’ve steamed whole (butterflied) chicken breasts and it cooks it great. Great buy and def worth it.
