"Easy peasy!"

I also ditched the included measuring cup. The Cuisinart cooked a cup of rice in about 15 minutes. I have this rice cooker, but I favor my glass top one. If you're interested steaming food while cooking rice, this is a good option. If anyone knows best way to make hardboiled eggs in it please tell me! I'm sure even a caveman could do it! However, I think it's not good at keeping the rice warm.

Brentwood TS-20 Final Thoughts

"- It is simple to use."

However, I think it's not good at keeping the rice warm. I will try any product that makes cooking dinner a little bit easier. I literally put two scoops of dry rice in, fill the pan to the 2 and forget it. Great for cooking a meal for one or two. I've been using this for about a week now, and I am very happy with. I think it's a great product for the price. It does this because the starch itself boils over.

"It's a steamer."

It does this because the starch itself boils over. As a rice cooker turns out wonderful every time. That's the lovely thing about a rice cooker. Nor is it a problem that the water marks inside are hard to read. It was too hard to see the measurements. I'll give it five stars based on the rice it produces and easy of use and design. I'm looking forward to trying the turkey chili and banana bread recipes.

"Read the instructions."

It's only big enough for a one person meal when utilizing the steam basket. If the bag calls for stirring make sure to do it! When cooked switches to keep warm so you don't have to babysit the cooker. The keep warm feature on both are too warm, so they share the same disadvantage. That's the lovely thing about a rice cooker. When cooked switches to keep warm so you don't have to babysit the cooker. The last thing you want is uncooked hard rice that's not edible or burnt.

"I recommend."

Or a side dish for 1-4 or even 6 people depending on what you cook. The Cuisinart cooked a cup of rice in about 15 minutes. If anyone knows best way to make hardboiled eggs in it please tell me! There are only 2 ingredients, rice& water and it's not very complicated. Don't touch the little metal ring on the inside while it's plugged in. Put the rice and water in the rice cooker and start! The biggest complaint I have it is that it can be quite frustrating to clean.

"I love this thing."

Easy clean up or quickly to put in fridge in plenty for leftovers. Overall, it definitely makes it supremely easy for me to make rice and I love it! Perfect little cooker for making sides, dips, and rice. The keep warm feature on both are too warm, so they share the same disadvantage. So I tossed that batch out and read the instruction. Makes my nightly dinner prep so much easier and saves me so much time! I'm looking forward to trying the turkey chili and banana bread recipes.

I haven't had a problem with It at all. Overall, it definitely makes it supremely easy for me to make rice and I love it! The keep warm feature on both are too warm, so they share the same disadvantage. This is a great little rice cooker for making small portions. Sometimes simple is the best and for this it is.

Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 Final Thoughts

"I'm so glad I did!"

As far as my research goes, this is one of the only smaller units with fuzzy logic. Sometimes simple is the best and for this it is. Works better on whole grain setting, but still trying to get proprtions correct. When cooked switches to keep warm so you don't have to babysit the cooker. Or a side dish for 1-4 or even 6 people depending on what you cook. It comes with a little measuring cup. First of all, I think it's adorable.

", splattering all over."

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! When I first received it, I was a little disappointed about how small it was. Much easier to clean, and it cooks rice equally well. 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. It's only big enough for a one person meal when utilizing the steam basket.

He makes SO much rice, way more than I thought could fit in the tiny bowl. It comes at a reasonable price also. Makes my nightly dinner prep so much easier and saves me so much time! Low maintenance also easy to to use. It does this because the starch itself boils over. I've made brown rice and it works just as well as when I use jasmine white rice. That's why I just gave this 4 star rating.

"I bought another brand."

Mine did that a little bit but not enough to concern me. Check out the full review on Normal Consumer. If I make too much because I think I will finish it, it usually ends up perishing. They do not know when the rice is done, just when there is no more water. Easy to clean in dishwasher or by hand in sink. I recently had to retire my three year old rice cooker and this one is amazing! The biggest complaint I have it is that it can be quite frustrating to clean.

"Yes, frozen!"

Just use one measure of water to one measure of rice. I own many Dash appliances and love all of them but this is one of my favorites. He is very happy with this kitchen appliance. Low maintenance also easy to to use. Once more I would show her who was right. It's fast to cook rice, takes you probably 20 mins to make it. That's how you avoid any brown rice on the bottom.

"I started percolating."

Wash the rice to get all excess starch off the grains. I have cooked long grain, basmasti, and jasmine rice in this things and it rocks. The rice cooker will sense the change and turn off cooking once that water is gone. Just wish it didn't automatically keep rice warm for 45 minutes. I recently had to retire my three year old rice cooker and this one is amazing! This attractive cooker takes center stage in my kitchen. It comes with a little measuring cup.

"Easy to clean."

It does indeed make pretty much perfect rice, white, brown, wild, etc. Be aware that it has to be unplugged to turn off but it's really no big deal. 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. I love the sleek design and I think it cooks my rice perfectly every time. I think it's a great product for the price. So I tossed that batch out and read the instruction.

"I bought one."

Works really good so far, I only make white rice and it's delicious. I cook the maximum amount& it lasts me for four meals. That's why I just gave this 4 star rating. I have cooked long grain, basmasti, and jasmine rice in this things and it rocks. Just add a bit more water and start the cycle again. Remember that the cooker knows when the water has been absorbed. Still use this rice cooker on a weekly basis at least.

"I love this thing."

Easy to scrap out left overs if make correctly. I only make a single serving of rice anyway so I don't need it to be any bigger. This too was one of my better buy and I did this with the help of an Amazon Rep. If not, it's more trouble than it's worth to clean. Don't touch the little metal ring on the inside while it's plugged in. That's different from your usual ratio for stovetop rice. It's fast to cook rice, takes you probably 20 mins to make it.

"Love this!"

I've had it for almost 15 years and it still cooks perfect rice every time. And if it can contain the rice amount for 2 people at the same time, it's enough. Jasmine rice comes out killer in this! It does this because the starch itself boils over. To make rice, I put a cup of raw rice into the bowl using the measuring cup first. They do not know when the rice is done, just when there is no more water. I've made brown rice and it works just as well as when I use jasmine white rice.

It's only big enough for a one person meal when utilizing the steam basket. The reps will even help look for coupons and discounts. I should've bought this at first before trying out cheaper alternatives. The rice cooker will sense the change and turn off cooking once that water is gone. Works better on whole grain setting, but still trying to get proprtions correct. After those few steps, you just need to wait. The cooker will still know when that water is absorbed.
