Disappointed with the inaccurate measuring lines
January 27, 2018
I'm a bit disappointed with this model. I hesitated buying it originally because it is a made in China model rather than a Japanese model so it's made for the export market. However, I ended up purchasing it because of the brand. I eat rice multiple times a week and used to have a tiger rice cooker.
I like the size of the cooker; it's perfect for one or two people. However the first time I made rice (short grain), it was really soggy/mushy.
The second time I had the same result. I used the cup provided and followed the line on the bowl, so I'm not sure what the issue is. But now I just have learned to put in water so that it's lower (by quite a bit) than the line on the bowl. That gives me the right consistency.
But it's disappointing to have to make those adjustments after having spent good money. Otherwise I do like the design of the machine. Removing the top is very easy although I noticed a little plastic piece hanging. Again, I think the quality is not there because it wasn't made in Japan. I will probably consider replacing with a made in Japan model in the future.
