Can't help you with this one.

There's only me and MrsChimp, so I just use microwave rice. Lazy, I know, but it's great when knocking up some egg fried rice to go with a curry or Chinese.

If you are already making rice regularly in a pan I personally would say its a waste of space on the worktops.

I just assumed the rice cooker was for those who were not confident cooking rice in a pan on the stove etc.

I obviously may be wrong hence it being just an assumption from me.

Likewise, I assumed they were aimed at those who preferred to 'switch on and leave it'. I was asked if I wanted one (no idea why, Mothers Day has passed, Birthday & Christmas are a long way off). I've always looked at it as a 'fad gadget' but wondered if they were worth it or worked.

In Asia many households own a rice cooker, it does cooks the rice spot on every time. I don't have the space but if I did I would consider one.

Rice cookers are Great. Simple and not to expensive. I’ve used a £30 for years. My mate bought a £15 one still got it. Depends on how fancy you want to go

I think it’s better to buy a decent rice, Tilda, Uncle Bens or a basmati rice. Mine only stuck and became sticky when I tried to economise buting shops own brand long grain rice.

I have a rice cooker which saves me some time in the kitchen. I also add vegetables to cook at the same time and it steams for about 25 minutes. I got my rice cooker from Gumtree as the lady had only used it twice and it was taking up space in her kitchen. Image
