Cooking White Rice
The first time used, we cooked 30 cups of rice and all went well. We were careful to use the cups sent with our order. I always wash rice until water is mostly clear. Then I add the appropriate amount of water to the suggested water mark (in this case 60). The rice cooked in about 30 minutes, then it should steam a while longer before its completely ready.
Easy To Use
This rice cooker is very easy to use. I love not having to worry about timing the rice. It shuts off and goes to a warming mode automatically. I wish I would have found this cooker a long time ago.
Great for large groups of people
This is a great rice cooker for the money. I use this for cooking rice for our church. I think this is a better one than I've purchased in the past as the cooking liner is a much heavier gauge of metal. The first time I used it the rice came out perfect. I didn't use the amount of water that the instructions suggested as it would have made the rice very gummy. I used the whole-hand-in-the-water method. Put your hand in the water and if the water covers 3 of the 4 knuckles you have the right amount. The index finger method works as well although you will have to take several measurements around the pot due to uneven rice levels, but if it goes to your first joint on your index finger you have enough water. Good buy. I would recommend nthis to anyone who needs to cook large amounts of rice fast. One thing to remember, I mentioned a heavier liner, well along with that comes extra weight. With the rice cooker full don't expect to move it around too much. It gets quite heavy.
I love this product, I use this to feed the homeless in a park. The Rice cooked fast and evenly. it did not burn bottom because I based it with butter and was easy to clean. I also kept original box with foam inserts in it to use while traveling in the car to keep rice warm once you take it off the warming base.
I needed this item and have more. I use it for work and it is a great product. anyone needing this kind of item will appreciate it. However the 2 day mailing was a crock far from it. I was forced to buy a hotel for two extra days to wait on the delivery. We ordered this product on Thursday the delivery said it would be there Saturday and we never got it until Tuesday. I was suppose to be 8 hours away in another show which I was to be there using these items yet was delayed because the details of the 2-day was lies.. it said even on the order that it would be there either Saturday or sunday shipped to me .. so don't believe in the 2-day ship cause you will be let down
First off I was suspectable of the price and its capacity quality output. I bought it and was so surpriced. Cooked perfect rice for every occassion: Church Dinner, Family Reunion, Youth team outings. WE chose to really test under accessory available conditions: Outdoor softball team BBQ cookout w/generator, no propane was available. Oohh Friends, the compliments and that was for the spagettii we cooked with a RICE COOKER!!! i WILL SO NO MORE, Still testing other uses, great tamale warmer, too! Smok-Her'
We purchaswed 3 for our restaurant. They work wonderfully for making soups along with rice. The one thing I don't like is the rice does stick to the cooker, it can be remedied by adding non-stick spray to the water before cooking. Yes I would recommend this product to others.
Do not Buy
I bought this to use at my daughter's wedding. It's not working after 3 use.
Poor Quality Rice Cooker
We purchased this 60 cup Aroma rice cooker from Walmart. It worked for about 4 months then began to turn off after about 20 minutes and didn't cook rice which takes about 45 minutes. We called customer service for Mirama Enterprises, Inc which makes the Aroma product and their was no one to take our call. We left a message for a return call and to date have not received a return call. We would not recommend this cooker due to poor quality and lack of customer service.
Bought this for our church's use. Followed the instructions and got a great 50-cup batch of rice, right down to the bottom. Wasn't PERFECTLY non-stick, but a brief soak with hot water and washing with a soapy sponge got it clean.
Good product, worth the money.
Good product, works well, simple to use, great if you have large social gatherings regularly, and a breeze to clean. Take note if you're cooking a full load, I'd recommen basing the bottom with a little butter.
Reasonable Price, Perfect Functions
For the price I paid, the cooking functions and capacity of the rice cooker is just perfect for what I needed it for. I actually have a total of three of this that I use at least three times a year or more, for large local community events. I purchased two of them over a year ago, and recently purchased this one only because of the increased volume of rice needed to be served at our large community events.
Rice gets stuck.
should have non stick cookin pot.
Commercial rice cooker
Exactly what we were looking for to accommodate large family gathering. Works great.
Bought FOUR Commercial Rice cookers. They are NOT non-stick as advertised! BEWARE! Brown Crust forms on bottom of cooked rice.
best rice cooker ever
Big Rice Cooker
You simply can't be the price, value, capacity of this cooker. There's no better buy on the Web.
