Forget the traditional rice making process now! Introduce your kitchen with the latest technology. 

Rice is a daily needed food for the whole south and west Indian community than north Indians as, the Malayalees, Tamils, Kannadigas, Telugus, Bengalis. 

Mainly, for any non-veg or veg items like dal, fish curry, chicken or mutton preparations are incomplete without rice for lunch and dinner. 

A rice cooker or steamer helps to make fresh rice like normal rice, jeera rice, fried rice, pulav, pongal, pulihora and a lot more tasty items within a few minutes only.

Things to know before buying a rice cooker

  • Before buying a rice cooker check the body material of it. Strong metal body with a double-wall is best. It enhances the durability of the cooker and provides long life. As much stronger the body of the cooker will be, it would be better to use. 
  • A rice cooker must be user friendly. As much as simple the functions of a cooker would be, it will be easy to adopt. A rice cooker with lots of complications is very difficult to operate. As a result, it becomes useless and starts showing issues.
  • Brand or company is one of the main factors to focus on. Products of a new or non-popular company would be cheaper than popular brands. But after some use those products start complaining. Then repairing the product becomes troublesome. But if you buy a product from a popular or good brand it lasts for a long period of time by providing good service. Price of those products would be high but they are worth money. If the products show some issues, you can repair it from the local store easily and their parts are also available in markets.
  • I will always suggest you not to go for a very cheap price rice cooker though it offers lots of functions. Always buy an electronic product with a decent price. It will assure you of its quality. Only one rice cooker is sufficient for a kitchen. As it is a one-time investment, buy it by reasonable price.
  • For a rice cooker safety of users is so much important because it runs by electricity. If there is any fault in the rice cooker, it can cause a major accident. So always check the safety measures of the rice cooker before buying it blindly.
  • Total numbers of members of a family decide the capacity of a rice cooker. If there is a nuclear family, a small capacity rice cooker is more than enough. But for a big family or for a party a rice cooker with higher capacity is necessary. So before buying a rice cooker make your mind about the capacity of the rice cooker. 
  • Nowadays people purchase a rice cooker for different reasons like for fast cooking, easy to use, no need for regular monitoring, perfect rice every time, auto cooking and warming etc. So before purchasing a rice cooker for yourself find out your reason for buying this product.
  • Along with helping you to prepare perfect rice, a rice cooker also enhances the beauty of your kitchen. So notice the design and look of a rice cooker before bringing it into your house. A gorgeous rice cooker will add an awesome look to your kitchen.
  • Always go for an easy to use and easy to clean rice cooker. Nobody wants a product which takes lots of time for maintenance and cleaning. You are not going to use this type of non-user-friendly product daily. And if you don’t use a rice cooker daily then why will you buy it. So before paying for a rice cooker make sure it is easy to clean one. 
  • Always go for a rice cooker which has an automatic cook and warm function. Some rice cookers also have auto-off and auto on the method. It saves a lot of electricity. You don’t have to monitor if your rice cooker has an automatic on-off system. 
  • Power consumption is very important. Always choose a rice cook which consumes less power. Because after daily use your total bill of electricity would be horrible.
  • Warm and cook facility one of the best benefits of a rice cooker. But how much time it takes to cook and how to extend it keeps rice warm is a factor to notice. Choose a rice cooker with your preference but keeping the cook and warm function in mind.
  • You can give a try to those trusted brand’s products which offer new innovations like the duration of cooking rice, steaming food while making rice, designer and attractive body of a rice cooker.

Final Words 

You should check the name of the brand, body material, weight, capacity, user friendly or not, easy to clean or not, safety measures and warranty duration, features properly. Always keep in mind that costly products are not all-time the best and cheaper products are so useful. Be smart and buy products by judging them on the basis of their functions which will give you the best experience. Go through the product description and reviews by buyers completely and then buy the product. These things will help you to choose the best value for the money products. I hope now you can make your decision properly on which rice cooker you should buy after reading the blog.
