What Folks are Saying:
used to think that a rice cooker was a pot on top of a stove. Then I got a $10 rice cooker at a drug store and it never burnt the rice and that was pretty cool. Eventually the cheap non-stick on that gave way, but I kept using it, losing a bit of rice to the pan, until it gave out. I knew that I wanted an upgrade, but some of the rice cookers were triple digits, which seems like a lot. I have gotten years out of automobiles that were triple digits. Anyhow, this fella seemed like the best of the “reasonable” lot, and it has been spectacular. Brown basmati? Perfect. Arborio? Perfect? Calrose? Perfect. This thing is light years ahead of the cheap cookers that you set a glass cover on top of.
i put rice in
i put water in
i turn on
(That was simple, right? John)
I had an old Panasonic rice cooker which had performed faithfully for almost 20 years, but it didn’t have a Teflon pot and tended to scorch rice on the bottom — especially brown rice. After reading countless reviews of various rice cookers, I decided to chance the Aroma ARC-914SBD. My experience has confirmed some of the tips and observations of previous reviews:
~ To avoid calamities, follow the directions in the user’s manual, not what’s on the rice package or what you used to do when cooking on the stove top. I was particularly surprised that brown rice takes no more water than white rice, but turns out beautifully.
~ The term “cup” does not mean an 8 ounce cup. It’s actually 3/4 of a cup (6 ounces). I quickly discovered that trying to convert this idiosyncratic measurement scheme to standard English measurement is more trouble than it’s worth. Just do what the directions say.
~ There’s good reasons for this cooker’s taking longer than stovetop cooking or what my old rice cooker took. It intentionally heats brown rice more slowly and apparently cooks at a lower temperature than with white rice. That’s fine with me, since the result is perfectly cooked brown rice!
~ The top assembly is slightly more awkward to clean than a simple removable glass or metal top would be. It’s really not much of an issue, but others have noticed it also.
~ The maximum capacity is claimed to be eight cups of cooked rice, which is actually six – 8 ounce cups. This is fine for one or two people, but may not be large enough for more people.
After only a few days of ownership, I’m very pleased with the performance of this unit, but obviously I’m not yet able to comment about reliability or customer service.
I hope you enjoy your cooker!
