I came across this rice cooker at my local thrift store last week. Only $5 and it was in like new condition, including the cooking pot, steaming rack, special spoon, measuring cup, and instruction manual. The cooking pot was almost 3 times the size of my current one, so for $5 I figured it was worth a try. And now after using it to cook vegan brown rice, seasoned white rice, lentils, beans, and even quick oatmeal, I love it! It’s amazing how much faster this one heats up. Steam starts coming from the vent within minutes of turning it on. My old one would take 10-15 minutes at least to heat up and start boiling. I’m going to donate the smaller one back to the thrift shop.
