Unassuming, affordable, practical— these are the words that come to mind when describing Rival’s 10 cup rice cooker. It does what it’s supposed to do, namely: it cooks rice, without fanfare. Plug it in, turn it on. There is one other button to push should you choose to keep the rice warm after cooking. And a steamer basket is included in which to steam, say, vegetables, if you are so inclined, in the steam made from the heat of the rice cooking. That’s it: pretty simple.
It is not unwieldy. It is not hard to clean. It is average in every regard. And reliable.
