Sistema 2.75 Quart Microwave Multicooker
Great Rice Cooker
I will never use another rice cooker. I put 2 cups water and 1 cup rice in my 950 watt microwave for 12 minutes, then waited 2 or 3 minutes before I took it out of the microwave. The rice was just the way I like it which is on the moist side. If you like your rice drier, you could probably adjust the amount of water.
It is much easier than fixing rice on my stove top.
I have about 6 Sistema products. I enjoy every one. This is a great product line.
I tried this product for the first time today, an d was very impressed. I used it for frozen vegetables and they came out not soggy but just right. I will be trying the string beans and garlic next. I'm sure carrots will be good also.
Delivers as Promised
Perfect easy rice and mashed potatoes every time. Much easier to wash than a pot, plus having it in the microwave - I can turn my back and not be worried.
This makes great Rice and Mac N Cheese. I am very happy with this microwave cooker, works great with the recipes on the site also.
FABULOUS RICE COOKER
I wanted to write this review because after reading a lot of the reviews, I almost did not buy this rice cooker. I have now used it about 15 times and it is FABULOUS!!!
I cook brown rice exclusively. My microwave is a 1100 watt. I got my husband to translate the the manufacturers directions as it was a different wattage than mine,
for a 1100 watt machine: set to 80% of the full power setting
1 cp rice
2 1/4 cp water (18 0z)
i add a little garlic powder and pepper
center rice cooker on microwave table
22 minutes at 80% power.
Then I let it sit for at least 10-20 minutes before opening.
Rice is perfect every time... no left over water.. nothing sticky.. I must add that the rice will be a touch al dente.. but I LOVE IT!!
I don't use the microwave to cook really just reheat things but this rice cooker has made cooking rice so simple and consistent that I am going to try veggies and other things sistema says it can do. THIS WAS A REALLY REALLY GOOD PURCHASE!!!!
I'm liking this
I received this product a few weeks ago and so far I really like it. I'm not much of a microwave cooker person, but this has come in handy for artichokes, pasta and other vegies, I am anxious to try rice now after reading the reviews. My only suggestion would be to put a helper handle on the side, it's a little awkward to pick up and stir, if it had that I would be giving it a 5 star. The capacity is great, I cooked half a pound of pasta in water and then mixed in my butter, milk and cheese, put it back in the microwave and had a nice side dish of mac and cheese for the family. Looking forward to trying more with it. Easy to clean and so far no damage to the interior.
#1 thing you could buy
I am a health nut. I have always tried my best to eat healthy.
This item steams veggies perfectly in 12 minutes.
Broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms, etc.
I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT, AND SO WILL YOU!!!!!!
Cleans easily. Doesn't really reduce time when cooking rice but does save time for cooking vegetables.
Sistema cooker ROCKS
I got 2 in purple, in anticipation of loving it, 1 for backup. So far, I've only used it for rice, to super results. I think this cooker will be fabulous for not only the included recipes, but almost anything one dreams up. Great quality, functionality, and awesome price.
Do not purchased
I am very disappointed in this product. Put the appropriate amount of water in the bowl and rice and set the time according to instructions. I had one hot mess. It burned a hole through the bottom of it. Waste of my money that I will never get back. Had to throw it away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got this so I could cook pasta in my microwave. Receipt booklet doesn't include this process but I tried it any way. Used 4 not 6 cups of water & it worked! It also cooked rice well. Lots of other things to try in booklet. Cleans well.
love, love, love this cooker. I have used it for bread, meats, veggies almost everything. It is great. I would love to see this in a smaller version.
