Cheap rice cooker for small quantities of rice without any extra functions.

The device

The rice cooker is delivered in a manageable illustrated cardboard box.

The model is relatively small and has a capacity of 1 litre. In addition, this rice cooker has a pot, a lid, a mug, a spoon and a German and a French instruction manual.

The instruction manual is written in a clear and understandable way.

The rice cooker, like all other tested appliances, is very easy to use. All you have to do is add water and rice to the pot, and due to the automatic switch-off and the burning protection, you don't have to worry about anything more.

As soon as the rice is cooked, the appliance automatically switches to keep it warm.

Included in the scope of delivery:

  • Pot
  • Lid
  • Mug
  • Spoons

The application

The handling of the rice cooker turns out to be quite simple.

Before using the appliance for the first time, clean the various parts in warm rinsing water and allow them to dry. However, you should only clean the frame with a damp cloth and never put it in cold water.

First, you have to measure the desired amount of rice (in this case 500 g jasmine rice) with the help of the provided measuring cup, in this case, there were 4 measuring cups filled up to the top. For the amount of water, one should use the water level indicator inside the pot. In this case, one has to fill up the water up to 4 in the water level indicator.

Next, pour the rice into the inner bowl of the cooker and add the appropriate amount of water.

Then close the lid, connect the cable to the power supply and move the front control lever to the lower position. Then the control light should light red and indicate COOK.

After switching on the appliance, it starts to boil quite quickly, but it stops quite quickly, which caused some astonishment. The boiling process took only 24 minutes, which was a bit longer at the beginning.

In order to get an optimal result, you should stir the rice immediately with the enclosed spatula and put the pot back on the rice, if you don't want to serve it immediately.

After the rice has been cooked, the temperature at the edge of the lid is 55°C and the temperature at the rack is 33°C. The rice should be cooked until it is ready.

Compared to other tested rice cookers, the rice hardly sticks to the bottom of the pot.

The test was also carried out with a different type of rice (Basmati rice), a much smaller quantity was used (200 g), this also worked without problems.

Cleaning

Before you start cleaning, be sure to remove the power plug and wait until the rice has cooled down completely.

Then you can easily clean the parts in warm, rinse water, but be careful not to use aggressive detergents to avoid damaging the utensils. This appliance is not suitable for the dishwasher.
