So the 7-cup rice cooker is suitable for a family of 4-5 people. The 5 cup is great for a family of 3-4 people and the 10 cup for 6-8 people.

Conventional Heating

This rice cooker is a conventional electric rice cooker without fuzzy logic or induction heating technology. The biggest selling point of this rice cooker is the stainless steel inner pot which doesn’t peel off after repeated use. It wouldn’t cause potential harm to your health due to the non-stick aluminum coating. Triple-layered cooking pot bottom minimizes burning or sticking. The rice will be kept warm and fresh for up to 24 hours. So no need to transfer the rice to a container and store it in the fridge if you know you are going to eat it in the next meal.

Easy to Use and Breezy to Clean

Soak the inner pot with some water and use a kitchen rag to wash off any residual on the bottom of the pot, rinse and dry it.
