Instant Pot IP-LUX60V3 Final Thoughts

"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.

Just use one measure of water to one measure of rice. I will try any product that makes cooking dinner a little bit easier. I will try any product that makes cooking dinner a little bit easier.

"Easy to clean."

That's the lovely thing about a rice cooker. I've been through a bunch of different rice cookers. It has made perfect rice the past few times I have used it so far. I literally put two scoops of dry rice in, fill the pan to the 2 and forget it. Put the rice and water in the rice cooker and start! That's why it works for all grains. I have this rice cooker, but I favor my glass top one.

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!

Instant Pot LUX-6-V2 Final Thoughts

"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.

This machine is too good, however, to deduct any points for that. Works really good so far, I only make white rice and it's delicious. Then I hit the warm button and then the rice button and it said 45 minutes. Don't touch the little metal ring on the inside while it's plugged in.

"My baaaad."

But extremely happy with it as rice cooker. First of all, I think it's adorable. I don't know what I would do with out my Amazon. If not, it's more trouble than it's worth to clean. In a short time, you have a perfectly cooked grain! Put in the rice, put in the water and press cook and that's it. This cooker is ideal for two people if you are having mostly rice with your meals.

It does indeed make pretty much perfect rice, white, brown, wild, etc. It comes with a little measuring cup. I have this rice cooker, but I favor my glass top one.

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.

"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.

Great for cooking rice for a family of 3. That's different from your usual ratio for stovetop rice. To make rice, I put a cup of raw rice into the bowl using the measuring cup first.

Be aware that it has to be unplugged to turn off but it's really no big deal. Still use this rice cooker on a weekly basis at least. It is perfect for a family of two with no left overs so we enjoy freshly cooked rice. And some rice is drier than other rices, and need more water.
