Aroma rice steamer simplifies cooking

Feb 3, 2012

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Provides a properly cooked rice meal every time

Cons:Electric cord is a bit short(less than 2 feet)

The Bottom Line: Eliminates the guesswork in rice cooking. A must for every kitchen.


Cooking rice can be a chore...either its too sticky or not done. The Aroma ARC-747-1NG Rice Steamer makes cooking rice and other dinner items very easy. The unit has a built-in measuring scale, so you simply add the proportions listed on the bag of rice...and turn the unit on. Don't bother with a timer or clock. The unit automatically turns off and switches to "warm" when it's done! What could be easier? 

It does not shorten the cooking time. It merely takes the guesswork out of the boiling estimate.

The non-stick surface of the cooker prevents a mess for cleanup. Wipe it out and rinse is about all you need to do. 

The unit also does a LOT more for mealtime. Any vegetable can be steamed, using the steamer tray(included). What makes it very nice is that you can steam rice and vegetables at the same time. The rice is in the lower section with the water and the veggies are on top in the removeable steamer tray! Turns out great every time. 

Works with all types of rice... from simple white rice to wild and brown rice.

The clear pyrex lid has a tiny steam port, so it does not rattle while cooking and you can keep watch on the progress through the top.

It comes with a separate measuring cup and serving spatula. 

Basically, the entire meal can be placed into the steamer and it will shut off the main cooking element when the meal is done and switch to warming mode.

You can NOT use it like a crock pot and let it sit on warm for hours. The rice will eventually get hard and crusty. The warming mode is intended to be used for about 30 minutes, or preferrably less for optimum taste.

The  Aroma ARC-747-1NG Rice Steamer is an inexpensive item. I found mine at a local Target for $16 and have used it for the past six months.
