Stainless steel leaches chromium, which is toxic in high concentration. Stop using stainless cookware and utensils as well? Stop fear mongering.
Chromium is very expensive. That's why made in China stainless steel still rusts, they skim on chromium. You never have to worry about too much chromium from made in China stuffs.

It seems to be OOS everywhere. If you really want one, I still got one extra but it's missing the rice scoop if you are ok with that. The other complete one - another fellow rfder asked first so he can have that one.
can you contact me on this, i am interested

I used to use this cooker. But now i changed to instant pot. This cooker only cook well for good rice. The instant pot can cook all kinds of rice to good meal. Interm of quality, the instant pot is also more durable.

Didn't check if this price was mentioned in this thread yet but I just picked one up at dartmouth crossing for $89.88! There was only 1 left (after I grabbed mine) and there was no price tag with it; it was mixed in with the $150 Panasonic ones.

i cook rice in my IP and rice comes out the same as my made in Japan Zojirushi. Just use the pot-in-pot method.
This. IP cooks rice just fine. You guys are just fancy with your rice cookers. I lol'd at paying so much for a ride cooker. Lmao

I've heard about the "finger" method but also wondered about different finger sizes...do people's fingertip lengths not vary that much? I've also heard it two ways, fingernail or to the first knuckle--which one is correct? Does this actually work with any quantity of rice?

Can someone just give me an exact measurement of what it's supposed to be in cm/inches?

For me, its 1.5-1.6cm and rice is usually perfect. Can depend on age of the rice, older dryer rice will need a bit more water. Wife prefers then hand flat on top and covers the top of her hand which works out to similar 1.5-1.6cm since her hand would displace more volume and cover the top of her hand.

When we ran a commercial kitchen and made sushi for lots of supermarkets. We marked off a chopstick. Tip touches the top level of the rice and make a mark on it. You can play with it but it'll be the same each time, finger is just faster for me.

Real talk, what’s so good about these rice cookers? I’ve been using generic $20 chinese cookers my whole life, what have I been missing out on?
