Recently we bought this PowerPac rice cooker with stainless steel inner pot .
As you can see from the pictures above, this PowerPac rice cooker has a capacity of 1.0 litre. It can cook up to 5 cups of rice and comes with food steamer. It also comes with a rice paddle and a measuring cup.
According to their instruction manual, we have to wash the inner pot and pour water up to the level 5 mark and press the selector button downwards to cook. After the water is boiled, switch off the rice cooker. When the water has cooled, pour it away and the rice cooker is ready to cook rice. This step helps to get rid of any weird metal smell and also sterilizes the inner pot.
Cook rice as you normally would for a rice cooker.
If there's still some rice stuck to the inner pot after scraping off any extra, add some water into the inner pot and let it soak overnight. It can be easily washed off using detergent and a non-abrasive sponge the next day. Alternatively, you can follow the manual's instruction to add some warm soapy water for about 20 minutes and then wash with a non-abrasive sponge.
This is a more affordable option of rice cooker with a stainless steel inner pot. We only use the rice cooker to cook only rice, so we do not need a lot of other fanciful function. We just needed a simple rice cooker. This PowerPac rice cooker with stainless steel inner pot served the purpose.
