Amazon Dash Rice Cooker Reviews Review and Buying Guide from experts and users.
± Not just for rice and perfect for 2 people.
I bought this for the size. It’s perfect for 1-2 people. Possibly 4 depending on what you make. It came with a recipe book. I made Mac n cheese and it took about 25 minutes. A much healthier option over the boxed stuff. I’ll try rice next. It’s very easy to use and delivery was fast.
When I first received it, I was a little disappointed about how small it was. But when I used it it changed my mind. He makes SO much rice, way more than I thought could fit in the tiny bowl. It is super easy you just push the bottom and it cooks and then when it’s finished it goes to keep warm setting. The rice taste perfect and it’s super easy to clean. Great for cooking rice for a family of 3. Definitely recommend.
± Mushy Rice? Less Water! (a lot less)
The first couples times I made rice with the measuring cup and corresponding lines in the rice pot, it was too mushy! But when I filled the measuring cup it comes with 1/2 with rice, dumped that in, and then filled the same measuring cup up to 1 with water and dumped that in, it is significantly under the 1/2 cup water line but it made perfect rice. Lost one star for the bad water line, but the product works well if you don’t listen to their measurements, especially for such a low price!
± Life changer!
I used to avoid making rice because it was a hassle, requiring vigilance, timing and temperature control, not to mention the cleanup of the sticky mess left behind. This cute little non-stick gizmo makes PERFECT rice while you IGNORE it, sometimes for hours… It comes with a charming recipe booklet that shows things that can be made with it BESIDES rice – like soup, mac n cheese, chili, pudding, etc. This attractive cooker takes center stage in my kitchen. I recommend it highly! (A fine Dash product.)
± Gives me perfect rice every time
I like rice but my husband doesn’t so I got this mini rice cooker as a gift for myself. I’ve had it about a month and it’s great. Put in the rice, put in the water and press cook and that’s it. I wondered if the warming feature that takes over after cooking is done would make the rice over cook, but I’ve gotten perfect sticky rice the way I like it every time. The rice cooker takes up very little room, cleans up easy and is so much easier than stove cooking. Be aware that it has to be unplugged to turn off but it’s really no big deal. It comes with a measuring cup and directions but I’ve been using a 2(water) to 1(rice) ratio and it works for me.
great for cooking a meal for one or two…or a side dish for 1-4 or even 6 people depending on what you cook…
as a rice cooker turns out wonderful every time…used it to make stews, soups, deserts, cake (yes cake) and bread..easy to clean in dishwasher or by hand in sink…when cooked switches to keep warm so you don’t have to babysit the cooker…highly recommend.
± Avid cook
Purposed this mini rice cooker to replace one I had purchased from National. Since the company no longer makes this size cooker, I had to research other companies and found this one. It is perfect for a family of two with no left overs so we enjoy freshly cooked rice. It comes at a reasonable price also.
Perfect little cooker for making sides, dips, and rice. Recipes included were good. You can use smaller sized crock pot liners for dips or sides to make cleanup even easier.
I got the dash rice cooker like a week ago and have used it twice. I like how I can just add the rice and water, press one button and forget about it. No more overflowing pots of sticky rice water on the stovetop. Made perfect rice each time. Will be using this frequently.
± Convinient and cute
First of all, I think it’s adorable. My bf said it looks like a toy because it’s too small, but for me it’s just so cute. And if it can contain the rice amount for 2 people at the same time, it’s enough.
It’s fast to cook rice, takes you probably 20 mins to make it. However, I think it’s not good at keeping the rice warm. As at the warm mode, I left it overnight, the rice became really dried. I’m an Asian and rice is always our main meal everyday and I know damn well that I can always leave the rice in warm mode overnight – I’ve done it for my whole life with other rice cookers I used to have. That’s why I just gave this 4 star rating.
