    I really want a rice cooker for my kitchen, I don’t make it often enough because it never seems to turn out right.

    The small, mostly mechanical rice cooker I have used for years is dying. I would love to win this high tech beauty.

    Cathy Reppert says:

    I would really love to win this rice cooker because when I make rice in a regular pot it almost always doesn’t get right. This would make it a lot simpler and it looks like it seems easy to work.

    Amanda R says:

    I don’t just want one, I NEED one. I am, without doubt, the world’s worst rice maker. White, brown, instant..doesn’t matter-I can’t cook it. I’ve tried it stovetop, crockpot, and oven. I’ve tried making it plain or with other foods (think chicken and rice or broccoli and rice). It just isn’t happening. I get so frustrated because the rice always turns out crunchy. I follow the directions to a T and it never works for me. I always tell people I couldn’t cook a pot of rice right if Jesus himself told me to. (Don’t get offended-it’s a joke.) Seriously, I need this cooker more than anyone else entering. I know the drawing is random, but I really, really hope I win!

    When people 1st started telling me about how good “rice cookers” were I laughed & said “Who needs a machine to cook rice? It is already easy” ? That was until I actually tried one !! OMG They are THE BEST THING ever !!!! perfect, no checking, never, ever fail… AND WHEN YOU MAKE IT AHEAD IT STAYS WARM UNTIL YOU NEED IT & DOESN’T RUIN IT !! PLEASE ENTER ME TO WIN ONE

  • 16
    Maria says:

    I’d love to win the rice cooker – I often cook rice with meals (especially the easy slow cookers), but it never comes out right! Water from my pot will overflow into my burner or water gets soaked up into the rice which causes it to burn. :( This would be a huge help!!!

    Brook says:

    Rice rice, Baby. But why? My affection for the grainy goodness that is rice runs as deep as my appreciation for this blog. Running a business that supports socially responsible chefs, restaurateurs and others in the food world, while writing about food, leaves little time for homecooking. One of my greatest goals this year
    (So far, sooooo good), is to spend more time in the kitch. This lass of a rice cooker will be my enabler. Thanks for considering my contribution. Rice rice, Baby, never too co-old.

    I’ve been stalking and drooling over rice cookers online and in stores, but haven’t purchased one, as I’m leery if it would help. I sure would LOVE to win one, it would definitely be put to good use!

    I truly need a rice cooker. I used to have one when I lived in Hawaii … have no clue whatever happened to it. Now I make my rice in the microwave … not great … never the same each time I do it: sometimes overdone and gummy … others: not enough. Would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a new (and high-tech) rice maker.

  • 66
    Rose Olson says:

    I have always wanted a rice cooker. I make rice enough that, by now I SHOULD be an expert. More often than not, though, it turns out either too soft or too crunchy. I have one dish that I make (that I love) that depends on the rice being perfect, so it’s a crap shoot.

    Karen D says:

    I have a basic (thrift shop) rice cooker that is not versatile. This cooker is my dream one, because it can accommodate many grains with its fuzzy logic technology, and we eat a lot of whole grains! Be great to use for barley, millet, wheat and einkorn!

  • 84
    Angie says:

    I would love to have a rice cooker. We use a lot of rice in our home and I also cook it for my dogs. I currently cook my rice in the micro, which takes forever to cook it right. Please save me!

    Shantell Fisher says:

    I need another rice cooker because the one I had just went out on me last weekend. I loved my rice cooker and don’t know how I am going to manage without one. It’s the best to make rice.

  • 110

    Nelly says:

    I make many dishes that I enjoy with rice, white or brown. It would be nice to have a rice cooker to cook the rice just right everytime and one that would keep your rice warm for seconds and not dry it. I look at many in the stores and put them on a “wish list”.

I had their bread machine that I bought in Iceland and it lasted over 20 years and I used it every other day. This company make quality things that last even with heavy usage. I know their rice cooker won’t disappoint either. I would really love to win one!!!

    My husband loves rice and I have a great recipe. However it needs to bee done in a 375 degree oven and I do not use my oven in hot weather. Thus he goes without or uses the packaged rice which is alright but has perservatives

    I would love to win this rice cooker as I have an older cat that can’t seem to stay off the stove, she’s taken up residence over the pilot light and makes it very difficult to cook and I’m always afraid she’s going to burn her whiskers off when I do. I’ve almost completely appliance-ized my kitchen and I’d love to add this beautiful rice cooker to the collection as I much prefer cooked rice to minute.

    Marie Dusini says:

    Whenever we go to an Asian restaurant I always opt out for the most exotic of dishes
    including the fried rice, my husband heads straight for the rice cooker with the plain white rice which he totally enjoys even tho I try to persuade him to try other things he never does. So when we are at home and I make white rice for him it never measures up to the rice in the rice cooker that he gets at the restaurant so I would dearly love this cooker to make my husband enjoy his meals more.

  • 153
    Megan says:

    Two years ago, my fiance had to have an aortic valve replacement and I am a nine year cancer survivor. We are both making a conscious effort to adopt healthier lifestyles and part of that is to improve our diet. We eat a lot of rice and I prefer cooking “real” rice instead of the easier, quick stuff.

    In my 58 years of married life I have never learned to cook rice successfully without a rice cooker. My old one has just given up the ghost and a new model would make our future bright.

    this would be great to own-not just for rice. I’m not even sure what all can be cooked in a rice cooker, but I sure would like to try it out!

    We love rice and enjoy it at least 3 times a week. It would be a lovely addition to our kitchen and would help free up time in our hectic lives. There would be no worries of not having perfect rice every time I try to cook rice. Thank you. Linda

    Let’a face it I stink at making rice on the stove and in the microwave, so winning this would be a blessing to my family .

    I miss all the rice I used to eat while I was stationed in Japan. The rice cooker would really help when I try to make Japanese or Chinese dishes

    I have never had a rice cooker, but I like to make rice a part of dinners. This would make it so much easier.

    Timer… Slow Cook… Keep Warm… Sleek design… The #Zojirushi #Micom Rice Cooker vs an old saucepan with scars of previous rice battles lost. This is a no brainer.

    Hmm, my wife just mentioned “better rice pudding”.

    We eat a lot of rice since going (mostly) gluten free. I usually have good luck w/ brown Jasmine rice, but that requires soaking for 22-24 hours, then steaming using cheese cloth and an old veggie steamer, in a large stock pot. Clean up is a hassle. I would be awesome to have a cooker that my family could use while I’m away on business trips as they would never deal w/ the soak, steam, scrub method!

    My rice cooker broke and my husband does not like rice cooked on the stove. He could make it with this rice cooker

    My friend gave me her old rice maker when she moved back to Argentina.It works well, but I could surely use a brand new / modern one. Thanks

    I cook rice at least 4 times per week. It would surely make my life a whole lot easier if I had a rice maker to take away some of the time spent watching & making sure my rice does not burn or stick to the pot. I’ve never used a rice maker, but it seems to me that it would be an improvement in the outcome of the dish. I’m imagining a nice pot of loose granule rice rather than sticky rice or clumpy rice.
