    This product is just what I expected and more. The 8-cup is good for a meal for one or two in the slow-cook mode. Makes great rice too. The digital readout makes it easy.Cooks very quick and great flavors fill the kitchen while cooking. Be careful with the clay vessel, read the manual on its care and feeding! It's like having a chef on staff full time. Looks great just setting there on the counter!

    clay pot is too heavy to wash, though it's easier to clean food debris. white rice has kind a burnt bottom as compared to the teflon versions.

    Good luck if you don't need customer service. My VF7900 rice cooker was broken within two years. Tried to connect with their customer service since about a month ago, still no solution. They don't do repair, they don't have spare parts. Never a live person to answer 1-877 phone, and recently no choice to leave a message at all.

    This question is on the 8 C. VitaClay Rice and Slow Cooker. So is this size for 8 cups of raw rice? It will actually hold over a gallon total food? Has anyone used this for a long time - with it still working reliably? Does it have some preset functions but also can be manually set? Only in increments of 10 minutes? Can it be stopped early, or checked and restarted? Do I understand correctly that it can be used as a standard rice cooker - both as a preset function and manually set? - a slow cooker - another preset function for lower heat? or how does that work differently? - a steamer - by using our own stainless steel steamer baskets over water inside the clay pot? or how does that work? - a micro-pressure cooker - how does this function work? Can it be programmed to start at a certain time - and ingredients put in and wait until cooking time? Can it also be programmed to cook right away, and hold warm for a certain amount of time - or until you turn it off? I'm really excited about this - and glad to see good reviews, but would like to know more before investing. Thanks for any answers from users.

    • A. I just posted my review...the capacity is 8 cups in total. I usually put 3-4 cups raw rice (of course then add the right amount of water, depends on the type of rice and preference), it will "grow" into 6-7 cups when cooked. Besides the E1 error message I mentioned in my review, the lid broke within a year, I then ordered two replacement pots, thinking that the pot itself might crack anytime or the lid may break again. So for the pot is still okay, however, now that the cooking unit is broken, I am stuck with three useless pots, remember they are $29.99 each.
