[Amazon Canada] Salton RC1653 Automatic Rice Cooker $14.99

Hi everyone,
I was looking for an automatic rice cooker and I found this one. I don’t know the brand but reviews seem great and it’s on a decent discount.

I have this one at home. Used it a few times. It gets the job done. Make sure to cover a cloth around the cover or the boiling water from the pot will splatter through the loose lid.

These are garbage. The lid isn't tempered glass.

Never used it so can't claim if it's any good.
But depending on whether or not you eat rice often should justify if you should get a better unit.
Also nowadays people tend to buy instant pots, which can cook rice as well (I've never done this as I own a ricecooker).

Get an Asian-style one with a latched lid. Zojirushi, Tiger, etc. are good brands.

No, but a rice cooker is basically BIFL stuff. I'm using the one I bought for $70 when I moved out 8 years ago.

It is fine for the price. But keep In mind it is only big enough to cook 2cups of uncooked rice comfortably.

What is the advantage of tempered glass over regular glass in rice cookers? I didn't realize this was a thing.

I am all for spending money on a better rice cooker, but at $15 this is literally cheaper than an average bag of rice.
Hard to deny that this is a good deal.

Salton RC1653 Automatic Rice Cooker, Stainless Steel

I thought it would be a good deal since it said stainless steel but there is nothing stainless steel about it. Can't trust the company that uses deceptive advertising practices.

I'd buy this just to use it as a steamer, hard to pass up at this price.
