A lot better results at cooking rice than the breville rice cooker i used to own and just couldn’t get on with at all. You can get two too three servings from this if you leave the top cooking tray out. The instructions are all in chinese but there are plenty of tutorials on the interweb. Using the cup provided i put a cup and a half of hot water in the base and two cups of rice in the pot along with four cups of hot water and it turned out great. It takes approx 30 minutes and turns of itself.
If you alway worried about too much food/ soup and can’t finish it. It’s so handy but be aware of the chinese description in side if you don’t know chinese.
Fast shipping , nice quality.
I am delighted with this cooker. I use it to steam rice and chicken/fish for my elderly dog as well as vegetables for my evening meal. I have had no problems despite the enclosed instructions being entirely in chinese. (this could be disconcerting for anyone who is a first time steamer). The cooker is small and does not have bells and whistles, such as timer or pre set cooking plans for different types of meals. I would think it is intended for a worker to have a simple, hot meal part way through his shift as it comes complete with chopsticks and spoon. If you fill the lower tray just over the stand and the larger pot up half full with hot water it reduces waiting time (but not the cooking time). You do need to pour hot water into the top tray when cooking rice. I have successfully steamed eggs (stand supplied) for use in fish pie. All in all i find it very useful and it does not use up too much of my limited work surface.

Good size and portable, but food can easily stick to the bottom when cooking and also there is no removable bowl, so washing it can be quite hard as you dont want to get the bottom, electric bit wet.
I bought this thinking that it would have had a steaming rack, to occasionally steam some food. But i did not receive the steaming metal rack that was included in the product description.
Only fault is instructions are in chinese, however easy enough to work.
Heats up as soon as plugged in. Very portable, especially for short trips away. It is better to use the lower setting to avoid water boiling over. Do not over fill pot as it automatically stops working for several days when water gets into the plug area. If oil seeps into the white band area below or the plug in area while on it will malfunction and give a loud electric shock sound and flash. This renders the item dangerous. I have only plugged it into a rcd safety mains which automatically cuts out when water renders it unsafe and do not know how it works when plugged into a normal socket. This item is excellent as long as it is used in the prescribed way and not filled to the brim.
Looks great but concerned that all instructions are in chinese – will be guesswork to use – timings – slow cooking?.
Best buy ever, use it almost everyday.
It’s the perfect little pot for the student, there’s always over crowding around the cooker, with one of these you just plug it in to a socket or eat around the table. It is only designed for soups and noodle cooking and similar recipes with water, it most certainly not designed for oil and stir frying. You can cook rice the old fashioned way like you would on a cooker top, however it would be a pain to clean out and it is not a rice cooker. I like how it can just be plugged in anywhere with a socket and it has a generous 3 pin uk lead. It is difficult to clean, so i’ve purchased a 14cm milk jug to go in it for an extra £20 (link below), using heat transferal by adding some water in the device, even if it means the water is slower to heat. Uk/gp/product/b009df8rx0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=utf8&psc=1knocked off one star as the device should have come with an extra stainless steel bowl for ease of cleaning, that was my choice, i preferred this design over the other style with removable bowl. The instructions are entirely in simplified chinese and the lid handle changed from loop to solid, it does look nicer.
