I have used the Panasonic SR-G10G 5.5-Cup Rice Cooker in the past and it is a very simple rice making gadget. As mentioned in my title, it gets the job done and that's about it. My family consumes a LOT of rice and I cook rice almost everyday so I have used my fair share of rice cookers. This one is the simplest of them all. I am not entirely satisfied with the Panasonic SR-G10G 5.5-Cup Rice Cooker. The rice at the bottom almost always sticks to the container making cleaning very difficult. Also, since there are no other attachments with this rice cooker, you cannot use it for any other purpose. Having said that, it works perfectly alright if you are looking for plain boiled rice with no frills and don't expect to do anything beyond that. The Panasonic SR-G10G 5.5-Cup Rice Cooker is a basic model and will fulfill your need for making rice at short notice. The rice cooks pretty fast in this cooker and automatically lets you know when it is done! The rice can be kept warm in the rice cooker until the time you need to use it. I personally find that the rice sticks less if I let it sit for a while after cooking.
