Rice Cooker Features

The lid has a steam vent to help prevent overflows while cooking or steaming. The Rice cooker can be used to make a variety of meals such as soups, chili and other grains.

Ease of Access

This Rice Cooker comes with a removable non-stick pot and removable Tempered glass for easy cleaning. The steam tray is made of aluminum. All the removable parts and accessories are dishwasher safe making cleaning a breeze.

The Good

The glass lid allows for viewing and monitoring of the cooking process as well as easy food storage once it is done. Because it is replaceable, it is very easy to clean. It is compact, making it perfect for small places such as apartment living or college dorms. The steam feature is very handy as it allows you to steam vegetables and meat while you can cook rice at the same time.

The Bad

It is very small. It claims to cook up to 6 cups of cooked rice when it actually yields about 4 standard cups of rice. This is great for a single person or a small 2-3 person family but not big enough for larger families or parties. This rice cooker does not have an off switch, so when the cooker is done it goes from Cook to Warm until the user unplugs the device. It is still very hot even in Warm mode so it is recommended to unplug it as soon as possible to avoid rice burning or getting too dry and to use pot holders to avoid burning.

Cute, Simple and Stylish

This rice cooker measures 9.3 x 9 x 10 inch making it small and compact, perfect for small places such as apartments or to save counter space in any kitchen. Its black and simple design matches easily with most kitchen designs.

Wrap up

This Oster rice cooker is a cute, small, stylish appliance that does exactly what it supposed to do: It delivers fluffy rice and cooks a variety of other grains such as brown rice, wild rice, quinoa and beans. This rice cooker will also cook soups, stews, chilis and more. With the removable steam tray you can steam meats and vegetables while rice is cooking. It is enough for 1 or 2 people but not big enough for bigger families or parties. It is also easy to clean and store. It must be unplugged to be turned off but overall it is a good, compact little rice cooker that works.
