Why people love it
  • More settings than most pressure cookers, offering more control over cooking
  • For speedier dinner prep, the make-ahead and keep-warm setting allows you to cook earlier in the day and keep rice fresh until dinner
  • Features a stainless steel construction that’s easy to take apart and clean up
Drawbacks, not dealbreakers

The main complaint with this rice cooker is that the heating and pressurizing components stop working after a while. As this does come with a limited warranty, it’ll be important to review those details before making any purchase if you’re concerned with the rice cooker's longevity or durability.


Capacity: This rice cooker comes in two sizes: 6-quart and 8-quart. The specs on this one are also pretty sizable (11” x 11” x 15” and 16 pounds), so maybe not the cooker for you if you don’t have a lot of room in your kitchen.

Settings: The best feature of this rice cooker is its ability to cook ahead. It comes with most of the standard settings you’ll find with larger rice cooker appliances, but the cook-ahead and auto-warmer functionality are both real value-add.

Versatility: This pressure cooker does a wonderful job at cooking a variety of foods: rice, meat, beans, vegetables, and more.

Quality: As we’ve seen with other rice cookers on this list, stainless steel construction usually does a better job at withstanding the test of time than other rice cooker materials. The interior pot for this one is also well-designed and is dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning up very easy.

Price: This rice cooker ranges in price from $99.99 to $129.95—not too bad for the amount of food you can prepare in it.
