Rice Cooker Features

This rice cooker features a slow-cook function, perfect for making roasts, jambalayas, chilies, soups, stews and more. It comes with a steaming tray that can be used for steaming chicken, seafood and veggies while cooking rice at the same time for easy one-pot meals. A measuring cup, steam tray and serving spatula are included.

Ease of Access

The 15-hour delay-timer allows for easy programming to prepare and cook food when needed. The ARC-150SB features a beeper that will beep for a few seconds before switching to the Keep Warm function, notifying when the food is ready. The programmable slow-cook function can be set for up to 10 hours.

The Good

The inner cooking pot is made of non-stick Teflon, making is easy to clean. The digital controls are easy to set and allow for effortless meal preparation. The attached lid features a handle to make it easy to carry from one place to another without spilling any food. The settings are easy to learn and set and the chime alerts when the food is ready. It prepares 4 to 20 cups of rice, making it perfect for a family or to take to parties.

The Bad

The lid isn’t detachable, therefore it must be cleaned immediately after using it to prevent the build-up in it to become stuck to it. Because there is no lid to the inner cooking pot, refrigerating left overs must be transferred to another dish. The condensation cup must be cleaned often, as it can get dirty pretty quickly. This rice cooker takes a bit more time than others: Brown rice may take up to an hour and a half to be ready.

Sleek, Clean and Simple

The Aroma ARC-150SB rice cooker comes in a very charming round shape and pleasant black and silver colors. It’s size is 10.8 in height, 10.8in length and 11.8in width, so it is not a small rice cooker. This is a beautiful, elegant rice cooker that looks well on any counter or table. It looks professional and pleasant and, because of the black and silver hues, it can match any taste or style.

Overall Verdict

The Aroma ARC-150SB is a beautiful rice cooker with a charming look that works just like it should. It makes restaurant-quality rice at the touch of a button. This rice cooker has digital controls that are user-friendly. The removable steam tray also makes it easy to prepare meals by allowing meats and vegetables to steam at the same time the rice is cooking. It also features a slow-cook setting to make a variety of one-pot dishes and meals such as chilis, soups, stews, roasts and jambalayas. The white-rice and brown-rice features do have long timers but with the programmable 15-hour delay, food can be ready at the time it needs to be.
