1 It can cook all kinds of rice beautifully.

Rice cookers have just one job: cook rice. They don't always do it right, though. This rice cooker lets you toggle your settings according to your type of rice whether Japanese, brown, normal, or glutinous and how you want it to turn out: soft, normal, hard, or crispy. So whether you like tutong or not, this rice cooker can give you exactly what you want.  

The nonstick surface of this spherical pot is also quite impressive. Right after cooking your rice, none of the grains stick on the surface. You can even glide and slide the rice around the pot just by tilting it. This means two things: you won't be wasting a single grain of rice, and clean-up is going to be a breeze.
