I've been looking for this kind of rice cooker for a long time. As we all know, microwave food is not good for health, may cause cancer. Therefore, I was trying to search around the world to look for this rice cooker. It works perfectly fine and I can steam my food at the same time when I cook the rice. It only takes 15 mins and I can have nice and warm lunch. I use this at work. Except the only thing is do not leave it in the cooker for too long, because the rice will get burn a little bit; not a big deal. Good buy!

I am an old buyer of Black & Decker rice cookers but my last 2 experiences have been bad. I purchased a unit that had gone bad (knob wasn't switching to cook) so then I was sent a replacement unit which actually went bad in 2 months. The knob does not switch automatically to warm. Because of which my rice is burnt. I would not recommend people to try this out. I'm pretty sure they switched vendors or something. The quality is not the same as it used to be 5-6 years back. They seriously need to reconsider the quality. When contacted, they asked me to ship the rice cooker on my expenses, plus pay them for return shipping. Why would I do that? Why would I spend another $15-$20 bucks for another B&D unit. I would rather go purchase a new one of some other brand.

Perfect for 1-4 people
I love this cooker. I've never had a problem with it breaking or spilling over. Always makes the perfect rice. One thing I make sure to do is to be there when it turns over to warm, then I unplug it. If I don't, the rice tends to burn a little. My one and only problem is my husband losing the rice measuring cup. Without that, the thing is worthless (and my husband has lost 2 of them). I'm hoping to get a replacement this time, but I'm not having much luck finding one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this handy little cooker. Doesn't have a bunch of parts to it so that means quick and easy to use and quick and easy to clean up. Compact size and reliable, it's all you need for perfect rice in no time at all.
love it cooks rice ...

love it cooks rice perfect, and heats soup and the like well
from Littleton, CO
We lived over seas and bought our first rice cooker (it was this same brand and everything). When we moved home we had to leave it behind but immediately went out and bought ourselves the same one! We just like it that much. It has been perfect for the two of us and makes enough if someone visits. I would highly recommend one !!!
This size is excellent
from Toronto, Canada
I have this and would like to buy more for my son and daughter.
I love this little rice cooker so much I have 3! But the non stick coating wears off easily. Hence3. I wish they sold replacement inserts or better- the option to buy a stainless steel replacement insert for those of us health conscious consumers.
Donâ€™t wash in Dishwasher
from Turlock CA
This unit does a nice job of cooking rice, but I donâ€™t recommend putting any parts in the dishwasher to be cleaned. The bowl will oxidize since it is Aluminum and the lid handle will fall apart due to the heat in drying the dishes in the dishwasher. Wash both parts by hand and enjoy buying cheaper rice to feed your family.
Makes a mess every time its used
from Maine, USA
Like the convenience of this little cooker but it makes a mess every time its used. The starch boils over so badly that when I use it now I put paper towels under it because I know its going to spew starchy goo all over the counter. I follow the directions exactly as written but no matter what kind of rice I cook it boils over every time. I've even put a little butter in the pot and it still boils over.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Was awesome- until it broke after 4 uses! :(
from Seattle, WA, United States
Bought this a month ago and used it 4 times. It was very easy to use and the rice was great. On my last use, the "cook" light turned off but the "Keep warm" light never turned on. The rice was definitely a little under-done, but I didn't think too much of it. I just plugged it back in and none of the lights are turning on, the base is not heating up. This size was perfect for my needs and I've generally had good experiences with Black & Decker products before, but this one does not hold up. Guess I should have come here to check the reviews, first!
Wonderful...until it died.
By Charlie B
from West Lafayette, IN, United States
Had it for a couple months, died in the middle of cooking my rice for dinner. I'm a broke grad student so rice is essential for getting by on a budget, what do I do to get this fixed/replaced?
from Coquille, OR, United States
I bought this on February 23, 2014. It's a great size rice cooker for two to three people. It was a bit messy at first, so, I just decreased the water and rice proportions. However, I had the same problem as the other reviewer. It just stopped working on April 12, 2015. I got a good year or so use. I performed the suggestions in the "Troubleshooting" section of the owners manual, but it still won't work. Too bad, it was my first rice cooker and I really liked it.
Small but decent, until stopped working
from Oakland, CA, USA
I used this rice cooker for about 8 months, until one day it just stopped working. No reason that I could deduce. It made a pot of rice, I put it away, and the next time I tried to use it the button wouldn't stick. It cooked the rice quite well--it turned out perfect, just about every time, though it's so small that the steam did sort of spray out of a little release valve up top, getting the counter in a 3 inch radius all around the cooker coated with gelatinous water. I've moved up to a heavier duty cooker, and wouldn't recommend this one to anyone but very occasional users.
loved it at first
Received this as a Christmas present. Used a handful of times and it worked great until it just randomly stopped. Won't turn on at all. Will be trying another brand.
from Milwaukie, OR
While the rice maker was the perfect size for my husband and me, and it worked well for awhile, it stopped working for no apparent reason. I can say that the directions are well written and easy to follow. Now, if only I can get a rice maker that works longer than 4 or 5 weeks.
from Toronto, ON, Canada
Bought this for my wife two months ago. She used it maybe 10 times and now it won't power on. Disappointing.
Bought it two weeks ago because it was the perfect size, but it broke after 5 uses. Doesn't heat up and the light doesn't turn on when plugged in.

Rice cooker was broken after few uses.
from Cary, NC
After few uses, the Rice cooker was broken. The spring on the bottom does not work. Several times, rice got burned. One of my friends fixed the spring. Broken again. I Do not recommend Black& Decker Rice cooker. Very Poor quality and breaks after few uses.
Broke after 5 uses.
from Norman, OK, United States
It works well initially,but broke after fifth time of use. After reading the reviews,I suspect that there must be a design flaw or something about this product. Because the way mine broke is similar to theirs. Very disappointed.
Broke after two uses!
from Siler City, NC, United States
My daughter have me this model for Christmas. It broke after two uses! Do some research and find a better model.
from Grand Rapids, MI, United States
I bought this and after about 4 uses it broke. Very disappointed.
Very Disappointing! Lasted about a month.
By Karen D
from Danbury, CT, United States
I was very excited at first it was easy and cooked great. Suddenly just stopped turning on! Very frustrating and disappointing.
By Jenn b

This was the most convenient thing I had and it broke on me. It still goes down but doesn't turn on :(
great while it lasted
We got this rice cooker and it stopped working after 2 weeks. We used it maybe 5 times total and it was great until it would no longer turn on. We hoped the shortcomings of previous reviews had been addressed but I guess not.
Rice Cooker No more works
from Miamisburg, OH, United States
I bought it on thanksgiving Nov 26, 2015 from Macy's and used it for couple of days (hardly 5-6 times) and last week it stopped working. I smelled a wire burn and then later the cooker completely stopped working. When it was working the rice was getting cooked properly but since it is not reliable I won't rate it as a good product. Looking ways to get it replaced from Macy's.
Didn't last long at all
from Chapel Hill, NC, United States
Stopped working on my third use. Trying to figure out how to register my warranty the link on the instructions is invalid. Disappointed.
I have bought two of these and they both stopped working after a couple of gentle uses. Possibly a fuse, overheating, or circuit issue I'm not sure. Great size and convenient clean up. Just fails easily.
DO NOT BUY!!!
from Colorado Springs, CO, United States
I bought less then a month ago, and it does not work.. WASTE OF MONEY!!
Broken after 2 uses
from New York, NY, United States
