Burnt Rice Galore!
Reviewed in the United States on December 31, 2018
The attached images is NOT cheese or butter, it's BURNT rice. Okay, for everyone who thinks I can't cook rice... Agreed, that's why I bought this little machine. So after THREE attempts using this thing, I'm still left with burnt rice. Let me explain my attempts.
Failed Attempt #1: I used too much water. I filled the measure cup provided with rice and filled the bowl with water to the line that read one cup. MISTAKE. You're suppose to add one measure cup (thats provided) with rice and one measure cup (the one provided) with water. I did not. So the machine overflowed and the rice just foamed to a sloppy meshy mess. Water everywhere, I threw the rice out.
Failed Attempt #2: I watched an HSN video of them demonstrating how to use this exact item from 2018. Figured out I added too much water and did as instructed... one cup of rice, one cup of water using their measuring cup. The rice burned. I threw the rice out.
Failed Attempt #3: I figured I needed to add oil, even though they claim you do not need it. So I did attempt #2 exactly the same in addition to adding one tbsp of olive oil. The rice burned even more than it did the first time.
In conclusion, this rice machine over cooks the rice which ultimately burns. I turned the machine off as soon as it was done and I still was left with brunt CRUNCHY rice. It only has ONE setting so..... I'm not sure what else you're suppose to do. The machine is the perfect size, super cute, but does not work. Sorry Dash, I hope this helps :)
