Best Rice Cooker Overall
- This rice and multi-cooker is extremely easy to use and does all the work for you
- While this cooker has a variety of foods it can cook, it is known for perfectly preparing rice with its preset programs
- Most larger capacity rice cookers aren’t known for being compact, but this one is indeed a space saver for your kitchen
The T-fal cooker does it all: it cooks rice, vegetables, and meat to perfection. It’s definitely on the cheaper side of things, too. And it’s easy to use from start to finish.
So far, consumers seem pretty happy with this product. This cooker has a 4.8-star rating on Amazon and no 1- or 2-star reviews.
Capacity: This rice cooker makes up to 10 cups of rice at a time, which is perfect for feeding small to large families. In terms of size, this is trimmer and lighter than most cookers of this quality and versatility, so it’s a great fit for most kitchens.
Settings: Consumer Reports does a really great job describing all of the settings included with this multi-cooker. In addition to the standard pre-set programs for rice, delay starts for planning meals ahead of time, and auto-warming, this product also has a micro-pressure valve that’s meant to hold in your food’s flavor and aroma better.
Versatility: You can’t get more versatile than a multi-cooker. Whereas a manufacturer like Zojirushi focuses solely on cooking rice, T-fal has been able to strike a great balance between preparing rice and preparing other types of food (which many multi-cookers aren’t able to do).
Quality: This rice cooker runs on fuzzy technology (similar to what many Zojirushi rice cookers do) which means it’s a smart cooker that produces consistent and quality results in rice preparation. And in terms of construction, the T-fal has a 1-year warranty. If you can take good care of it and keep it clean, it should live a lot longer.
Price: Whether you’re new to the world of rice cookers or not, this comes with an awesome price tag for everything you get with it. If you want the biggest bang for your buck, this is the rice cooker to go with!
