"I bought one."

Because that's 1-gou, the standard Japanese rice serving measure. Once it's done, the rice cooker will start beeping out loud a few times. The biggest complaint I have it is that it can be quite frustrating to clean. They do not know when the rice is done, just when there is no more water. I also ditched the included measuring cup. There are only 2 ingredients, rice& water and it's not very complicated. Since it's so small, it doesn't take up much room, which is another plus.

Elite Gourmet ERC-003 Final Thoughts

"I LOVE my rice cooker."

It's fast to cook rice, takes you probably 20 mins to make it. Because that's 1-gou, the standard Japanese rice serving measure. I only make a single serving of rice anyway so I don't need it to be any bigger. When I first received it, I was a little disappointed about how small it was. He makes SO much rice, way more than I thought could fit in the tiny bowl. Remember that the cooker knows when the water has been absorbed. Sometimes simple is the best and for this it is.

Elite Gourmet ERC-2010 Final Thoughts

"But I didn't."

The rice taste perfect and it's super easy to clean. Works better on whole grain setting, but still trying to get proprtions correct. I figured when he get to his house make cooking easier. My first Aroma rice cooker I bought as extra for my Asian parties. Apparently the vegetable tray is BPA free so it won't be harmful, sweet. It comes at a reasonable price also. This is a great little rice cooker for making small portions.

"25 cups of water."

The rice cooker will sense the change and turn off cooking once that water is gone. I'll give it five stars based on the rice it produces and easy of use and design. I love the sleek design and I think it cooks my rice perfectly every time. It was too hard to see the measurements. I've made brown rice and it works just as well as when I use jasmine white rice. The last thing you want is uncooked hard rice that's not edible or burnt. They do not know when the rice is done, just when there is no more water.

Elite Gourmet ERC-2020 Final Thoughts

"Easy to clean."

A small pie pan or just a plate could also be used. As far as my research goes, this is one of the only smaller units with fuzzy logic. Much easier to clean, and it cooks rice equally well. I've made brown rice and it works just as well as when I use jasmine white rice. Keep it in a position so that the vent is clear of anything above it. The worst that will happen is that it might get a little softer than you'd like. 5 cups cooked rice, or about a serving size of rice.

"- It is simple to use."

And you can even fix it when you open the pot and find it isn't quite done. This cooker is ideal for two people if you are having mostly rice with your meals. My bf said it looks like a toy because it's too small, but for me it’s just so cute. That's coming from an Asian who grew up eating rice everyday too! I think it's a great product for the price. This machine is too good, however, to deduct any points for that. Mine did that a little bit but not enough to concern me.

Low maintenance also easy to to use. They do not know when the rice is done, just when there is no more water. I love the many colors it comes in so you can pick your favorite. This rice cooker help me tremendously. And if it can contain the rice amount for 2 people at the same time, it's enough. I wanted one of these for a long time and I got this for such a great price! Anyway, it's a great product and it works well.

That's coming from an Asian who grew up eating rice everyday too! I haven't had a problem with It at all. As at the warm mode, I left it overnight, the rice became really dried. The biggest complaint I have it is that it can be quite frustrating to clean. And it saves me some money because previously I bout the boil in bag rice.

Great for cooking a meal for one or two. If not, it's more trouble than it's worth to clean. Anyway, it's a great product and it works well.

"Don't leave on warm."

I used it for mainly white rice, brown rice, and Zatarain's rice mix. Overall it's a great rice cooker and ultimately that's what I bought it for. Once it's done, the rice cooker will start beeping out loud a few times. I'm sure even a caveman could do it! This attractive cooker takes center stage in my kitchen. It does this because the starch itself boils over. As far as my research goes, this is one of the only smaller units with fuzzy logic.

"Do this with all spices."

This has to be the least expensive non stick cook ware ever available on amazon. I don't steam food often enough to make use of this device. I know it's short for safety, but the length of the cord is very awkward. Still use this rice cooker on a weekly basis at least. Sometimes simple is the best and for this it is. That's how you avoid any brown rice on the bottom. I think it's a great product for the price.

Or a side dish for 1-4 or even 6 people depending on what you cook. It's only big enough for a one person meal when utilizing the steam basket. If I make too much because I think I will finish it, it usually ends up perishing. It comes at a reasonable price also. Easy to clean in dishwasher or by hand in sink.
