From Rice, to leftovers... steamed veggies and hot dogs! You name it ~ I have used this wonderful rice cooker! It is just the perfect size for the two of us to create an entire meal by using the small steam basket on top of the rice. Sweet Asian chicken with Jasmine rice and peas was dinner last night. I love how the cooker knows when the meal is done, makes a beep, and then switches to keep warm! The stainless exterior is easy to clean, and the controls are foolproof Performance My only issue is that the keep warm temps run a little high and have browned my rice. Never burned it!! But browned it on the bottom Ease of Cleaning The non stick coating makes the insert easy to wipe clean or to place in the dishwasher. the steam basket is plastic but is high quality and can handle the dishwasher also. there is a small "cup" on the outside of the lid that collects condensation that I have lost... it was the only item that was any trouble to clean. But it works fine without it anyway Ease of Use I would feel safe letting my grandchildren cook with this rice cooker! Even my darling hubby can put all the items needed for a nice meal into our Wolfgang Puck Rice cooker and make a successful dinner! Durability the exterior has yet to get scratched - even with being stainless. the non stick coating on the insert does scratch and after a few years it now looks worn, but still does what it is supposed to do. I have dropped it, bumped it, and it still keeps working like new! Design I love how I can roll up the cord, put it inside the steam basket, slide the serving spoon into it's holder and put it in the cupboard. The design is clean and modern looking without taking up much space when in use or while being stored.
