As a plant-based vegan, this is one of the most important items that I have in my kitchen. I use it at least three times a week. This rice cooker makes quinoa, brown rice, steel cut oats, sushi rice…the list goes on and on. The best part, there is no need to use any oil (olive oil, canola oil, etc.) because everything in this rice cooker turns out perfectly with just water and pressing the start button (I sometimes add different seasonings, veggies or fruits to the cooker depending on what I’m making). Based upon the setting chosen, it somehow identifies its end time. Magic! No timers needed, just put the grain and water in the cooker and let this machine do the rest. It then automatically turns to a warmer setting once the cooking has finished. No need to sit around, wait and check on anything. Quality product! Can’t say enough great things about this rice cooker!
