Aroma ARC-1266F 6-Cup Cool-Touch Rice Cooker and Food Steamer
The Aroma ARC-1266F 6-Cup Cool-Touch Rice Cooker and Food Steamer is another cheap rice cooker that is a good value for those people who just need a solid, basic unit for making rice to go with their meals. It holds 6 cups of dried rice, which makes up to 12 cups of cooked rice at a time. It doubles as a steamer, so it can also cook vegetables, chicken soup, beef stew, etc. And you can also steam meat and vegetables while you cook rice, make this a great little unit for multi-tasking.
It has a nice non-stick inner pot which makes the rice cooker easy to clean after usage. That is really important to me, since I enjoy cooking and eating but I hate cleaning up. It also has a great lid that seals tightly. This kind of lid is popular amongst rice cookers here in Japan. It clamps shut and you have to push a button to release the lid. This keeps the heat and the moisture inside, and keeps your rice fresh. It also has a water reservoir that takes away built-up condensation for rice that is guaranteed to be light and fluffy.
For such a cheap unit, the Aroma ARC-1266F 6-cup Cool Touch rice cooker is a high quality durable machine that you can use to cook whole meals include veggies and meats. It is a good value for the majority of rice eaters in the United States.
