"Also easy to clean."

In a short time, you have a perfectly cooked grain! Since it's so small, it doesn't take up much room, which is another plus. It comes with a little measuring cup. There are only 2 ingredients, rice& water and it's not very complicated. I use more water with brown rice, more like 1. He makes SO much rice, way more than I thought could fit in the tiny bowl. There's a little bit of learning to do at first.

Amazon Basics ARC-232 Final Thoughts

"Easy peasy!"

I think it's a great product for the price. I should've bought this at first before trying out cheaper alternatives. Because that's 1-gou, the standard Japanese rice serving measure. I love the many colors it comes in so you can pick your favorite. I'll give it five stars based on the rice it produces and easy of use and design. The biggest complaint I have it is that it can be quite frustrating to clean. In a short time, you have a perfectly cooked grain!

"Yes, frozen!"

Once more I would show her who was right. If you are thinking of getting this mini rice cooker, don't hesitate, just do it! Works better on whole grain setting, but still trying to get proprtions correct. Or a side dish for 1-4 or even 6 people depending on what you cook. But extremely happy with it as rice cooker. I don't steam food often enough to make use of this device. This attractive cooker takes center stage in my kitchen.

"My baaaad."

When cooked switches to keep warm so you don't have to babysit the cooker. If anyone knows best way to make hardboiled eggs in it please tell me! Works better on whole grain setting, but still trying to get proprtions correct. As at the warm mode, I left it overnight, the rice became really dried. The rice cooker will sense the change and turn off cooking once that water is gone. The Hamilton Beach in about 30 minutes. This is a great little rice cooker for making small portions.

Narita NRC-030F Final Thoughts

"Rice doesn't stick."

When I first received it, I was a little disappointed about how small it was. After those few steps, you just need to wait. Once more I would show her who was right. They do not know when the rice is done, just when there is no more water. In a short time, you have a perfectly cooked grain! Be aware that it has to be unplugged to turn off but it's really no big deal. My bf said it looks like a toy because it's too small, but for me it’s just so cute.

"No non-stick coating."

He is very happy with this kitchen appliance. This too was one of my better buy and I did this with the help of an Amazon Rep. It does this because the starch itself boils over. This is the most perfect little appliance. Anyway, it's a great product and it works well. Just add a bit more water and start the cycle again. I will try any product that makes cooking dinner a little bit easier.

"Definitely recommend."

There are only 2 ingredients, rice& water and it's not very complicated. After those few steps, you just need to wait. Easy to scrap out left overs if make correctly. Still use this rice cooker on a weekly basis at least. Just wish it didn't automatically keep rice warm for 45 minutes. The worst that will happen is that it might get a little softer than you'd like. Doesn't take up a lot of counter space either!

I've been using this for about a week now, and I am very happy with. The last thing you want is uncooked hard rice that's not edible or burnt. The last thing you want is uncooked hard rice that's not edible or burnt. I'm looking forward to trying the turkey chili and banana bread recipes. The last thing you want is uncooked hard rice that's not edible or burnt. And some rice is drier than other rices, and need more water.

"Yes, frozen!"

It's fast to cook rice, takes you probably 20 mins to make it. The Cuisinart cooked a cup of rice in about 15 minutes. It's only big enough for a one person meal when utilizing the steam basket. The worst that will happen is that it might get a little softer than you'd like. Because that's 1-gou, the standard Japanese rice serving measure. Don't touch the little metal ring on the inside while it's plugged in. But when I used it it changed my mind.

And if it can contain the rice amount for 2 people at the same time, it's enough. If anyone knows best way to make hardboiled eggs in it please tell me!

This cooker is ideal for two people if you are having mostly rice with your meals. There are only 2 ingredients, rice& water and it's not very complicated.
