I make a lot of rice and when I saw that there was a product that could be used to steam rice in the microwave instead of a cooker that had to sit on my already crowded countertop I snapped one up. At first I was quite impressed. This does do a nice job of steaming the rice. All the grains come out separate and fluffy and fully cooked. There are no hard bits or anything as I had expected. It's quite easy to wash as well, although it can take a bit of scrubbing to get the rice out of all the little holes if you don't take all the rice out right away and wash it immediately. The only issue I found with it was that you have to store it somewhere when it's not in use. This may not seem like a problem, but it's another pot to have to store. It is rather compact, but it's not exactly small, and begin round you can't just tuck it in the corner of a cabinet. This is definitely a good option if you have limited kitchen space or want to be able to cook decent rice in a dorm room. It's well made and a good alternative to an electric rice cooker.
