Good points

  • Excellent results for our jasmine rice.
  • Good results for our brown rice.
  • OK to use.
  • Sealed locking lid prevents splattering.
  • Has steaming option.

But

  • Bowl has small lip (so it’s difficult to grip when serving).
  • Lid can’t be removed (so can be difficult to clean).
  • Rice can stick to the bowl (so may need soaking).
