Aroma ARC-900SB 10-Cup Rice Cooker and Food Steamer

The Aroma ARC-900SB Cool-Touch 10-Cup Stainless-Steel Rice Cooker and Food Steamer is a hot new unit from renowned rice cooker maker Aroma. With a standard retail price of under $40, this multifunctional 10 cup rice cooker is both highly useful and affordable.

The great thing about this machine is that you can use the built-in tray to steam veggies or meats simultaneously as you cook rice. But despite having a lot of functions, a lot of them are automatic or one-touch functionality, so it's easy for tech dummies like me to use them. Some professional chefs or cooking hobbyists might not feel that they have enough control over the specifics of the functionality, but the average user will feel relieved that they can figure out how to use this Aroma rice cooker quickly.

The 10 cups capacity refers to ten cups of dried rice, which will equal 20 cups of cooked rice. So this isn't a tiny rice cooker. It should be a good size for feeding your whole famliy. You can use the Aroma ARC-900SB for cooking a variety of secondary dishes as well. These include easy-to-make chili, soup, beef stew, and plenty of others. And one of my favorite things about this cooker is that it is made of stainless steel that stays relatively cool so you don't fry your hands if you touch it without oven mits!

Taking into consideration the multi-functionality, fairly large capacity, and user-friendliness of the ARC-900SB 10-cup rice cooker, I would say that for $40 it is a very good value.
