Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inconsistent rice I had an older B&D rice cooker that worked consistently and really well for many years but the teflon eventually started coming off so we replaced it 6 months ago with a new B&D 3 cup rice cooker. We do not like the unit at all. Probably 30% of the time the rice is too hard or the machine turns itself off before the it has even finished cooking. I do not recommend this unit at all to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Great Rice I received this product a while ago and use it to make rice for my golembkis. This rice cooker makes very good rice in a perfect amount of time. It is durable my daughter dropped it on accident and not a scratch of broken piece. I absolutely love this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light Weight Flips Over Turning On... I bought this a few days ago. Just pushing the button down can flip it over. Small and compact, yes. Needs more counter weight/better center of gravity. The 1/2 cup (dry rice) measure is half that of the included cup. Very disappointed. Fully understand, 1.5 cups of rice makes 3 cups cooked. No possible way that this can make 3 actual (real) cups cooked with out boiling over at the seams. It is struggling with their own measuring cup size to make 2. Why do I smell a weird burning plastic smell when this is on? Who ever designed this should be fired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for two people. It's hard to buy off the internet without actually seeing the product.. but this was the perfect size for two people and there's no waste I highly recommend the three cup rice cooker. It Cooks the rice perfect and keeps it warm after it's cooked. Nice.

Can I start cooking something before bed and let it sit overnight?

Asked by: am7524
We cook rice once or twice a week. Sometimes I start cooking it earlier due to time constraint and it is fine. I recommend not to leave the cooked rice in the cooker plugged in for too too long even in 'warm' mode, the rice at the bottom will get hard/dry and a bit brown unless you do not mind it.

Can I use this rice cooker in France with a simple converter?

Asked by: Hahn
Thank you for your question Hahn. Under the Key Features section there is a Specifications box that indicates this Black + Decker iron requires 120 Volts – 60 Hz electric power service, such as that which is used in North America. Please do not attempt to use this iron with any other electric power service.
