Design and Features

Equipped with a digital face, these rice cookers contain a microchip that allows the cooker to adjust its temperature and timer with the help of its sensory signals. The soaking and preparing time of the rice is already adjusted in these pressure cookers.

With the variety of cooking functions available, the cooker can make various types of dishes including porridge, rice, sushi and cake. Once the meal has been cooked, the cooker automatically switches to its keep warm function, which allows the food to stay fresh for at least 12 hours.

The cooker is easy to clean and is small in size, which makes it easy to place anywhere in the kitchen. It also comes with a simple cake baking menu which allows the user to bake cakes easily.


Performance and Quality

A small variety of foods can be prepared using this cooker. The end result of the cooker is magnificent. The “keep warm” function keeps the rice from turning brown and yellow for a longer period of time. The detachable cord makes it easier to store and place anywhere in the kitchen. It is a good appliance for small to medium-sized families who like to save some time cooking their meals. The sturdiness of the cooker allows it to run for a longer duration. The best way to put into words the performance of this cooker is that they work, reliably, consistently, and easily.

The one shortcoming of the product is that it does not work on excess condensation, which means that it does not reuse the water formed by the steam it gathers inside. Due to this reason, water needs to be added where required.
