Is Buying an Aroma Cooker a Wise Choice?
To answer that question, as briefly mentioned on our Home Page, ask yourself what you will need it for, how often you will use it, how much you are willing to spend, and how “perfected” you like your brown rice.
Aroma rice cookers provide more of a basic set up, and even though there are a few models that utilize what Aroma calls “Senor Logic” technology, at the time of this writing most do not.
Special Update! As of January 4th, 2010, we have seen a new line up of Aroma models that come equipped with Sensor Logic Technology…we will keep our visitors updated as soon as we receive some feedback on these new units.
Aroma’s cookers provide more of your general one switch easy to use operation, and simply boils the rice. There is a sensor at the bottom that estimates when your rice is finished cooking, and switches to a keep warm mode to maintain heat and moisture.
No Hassel Operation!
Some folks actually favor the easy “measure, add water, and plug & set design”. As far as rice quality, we did not hear of any negative feed back, and these cookers do pretty much the same job as cooking rice on a stove top. If white rice is the type you normally prepare, these cookers do just fine! But…
A few Aroma rice cooker models do not offer many features like specific settings for different rice types, so there is a bit of a learning curve on both water to rice ratio and rice consistency. Don’t be too discouraged if for the first few uses your rice is either under-cooked or over-cooked. This is the nature of cooking rice using a new tool.
However, even more high end rice cookers may come with that little con, but their onboard technology will usually adjust and be more forgiving.
Steam Vegetables and Cook Rice
Some Aroma rice cooker models allow for simultaneous rice cooking and vegetable steaming. They will come with a tray or rack which is great for making healthy side dishes. Steam seafood, poultry, and sweet potatoes as well.
Very convenient for making a meal all in one unit, and on average (depending on cup size) anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes too!
One thing we found about the Aroma rice cooker brand is that they offer a line up of practically every cup size! From 3 cups all the way up to commercial 48 cup capacity. There will be something for single cooks, large households, restaurants and diners.
