Aroma Housewares 6-Cup Pot Style Rice Cooker and Food Steamer Review
Aroma Rice Cooker
I consume a bunch of rice and don’t really steam a lot of things, so as a rice cooker only review this is a very good product. Initially my problems in buying a cooker was trying to figure out how many cups of rice equaled to how much food I would be serving at a time. What I’ve found is that about one cup of rice equates to roughly two servings. And since I usually only eat one serving per meal, there’s a good amount left for the next day if you’re looking for a large enough cooker that will leave leftovers.
My only quibble, and it’s no fault of the cooker really, is that there’s an exhaust port/hole on the lid, allowing the pot to release the boiling pressure inside so there’s no spill over. Unfortunately, it’s literally a hole in the lid that will splatter water in the direction it’s facing. I usually put down a dish rag to catch the excess water shooting out, because otherwise the surface you’re cooking on will become messy.
Lastly, there’s a faint burnt plastic smell coming off of the cooker when it’s in use. I’m sure this will go away after a few more uses, and so far it’s not affecting the flavor of the rice I’m making, so it shouldn’t be a big deal. The lid, pot, and the plastic body all become very hot when you cook, so be prepared to wait a minute or two before touching them after the cooking nozzle switches over to warm (indicating that you’re food is done) just in case you burn yourself on accident.
