I have lived in the Far East through my life and rice cookers were easy to come by so I took them for granted. Since coming to the UK I have been going out of my mind with European Rice cookers that simply make terrible rice. The Hitachi is BRILLIANT!! Fluffy lovely grains of rice every time. My friends and family have really noticed the difference and once again I am back to eating rice four times a week.

The Hitachi LS RCSS1 RICE COOKER is very easy to use and rather very fast in cooking rice as I found to my surprise. I have used rice cookers before but this is in a class of its own. Very efficient I must say. keeps the rice warm after cooking for as long as you like. I will strongly recommend this particular rice cooker for its overall convinience. Very good value for the price. Try it,you will be glad you did.

Good points:
Works well, we like the look.
Bad points:
When the cooker switches to "warm" (orange light), it has to be switched off because the rice starts drying out very quickly - if left on for more than a minute it becomes dry and hard.

Lucy, UK i love rice

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
REALLY easy to use. The rice tastes 100 x nicer than when you boil it. Cooks perfect rice every time, and is very easy to clean. I now eat rice nearly every day!
Bad points:
Would benefit from an on/off switch as you have to unplug the mains lead to switch it off properly (otherwise it remains on 'warm'). It occasionally boils over but i've found that simply lifting the lid for about about 10 seconds halfway through cooking time (just enough time to give the whole lot a stir), solves this problem and it doesn't boil over after that.
