There was a time when I just couldn't make rice. I would either undercook it or overcook. I even burned it one time causing a mess and burning my pot. That's when I turned to this rice cooker and haven't looked back. The cooker is simple and easy to use and allows you to cook rice to perfection. It's a set it and forget it appliance and allows me to work on other things while it cooks. No fears exist of ever burning a pot again!
