Oster 4722 6-cup cooker Review

Rice cookers are very good. You can use them for many things. Some rice cookers are even steamers. On that way you are able to steam your food and what not. Well this post is exactly about that. It's about another review on another rice cooker and I hope you'll find it useful. Last time I reviewed Black&Decker rice cooker but in this post I'm going to review another rice cooker.

Well I will review Oster 4722 6-cup cooker. This cooker has even a steaming tray. As I said in first paragraph, some cookers are even steamers. This one cooker by Oster does same as well.

I think that this is a very compact and an inexpensive cooker. If you are looking to save money or if you are with shorter pocket then you might buy this one since it will be cheaper. But this isn't a set-and-forget cooker. If you are looking for cooker that will do everything for you(you just put in rice and the water) then I think you will need to pay more.

This cooker requires some attention and stiring during cooking. But price is very good so that's pro of this cooker.

I like that whole cooker is made of metal/glass. No plastic at all. For example bottom and steamer tray are made of metal. The lid is made of glass and I think you can look through so that's good. Plastic might melt or something but on this way your cooker is safe.

This reviewer from here said:

During cooking, rice might get crunchy, brown or even burnt. If you don’t stir occasionally that’s what happens. Keep rice-water ratio good and stir occasionally. If you like crunchiness, then this rice cooker is the right choice for you.

This rice cooker is quite big and you should be able to cook 6 cups (smaller cups) of food. I said smaller because 1 cup of this cooker isn't same as 1 regular cup. Maybe 6 cups is equal 4 or maybe 5 regular cups so yeah. But it's still good in cooking. Beside cooking rice (like any other rice cooker is doing, right?) this one is capable of cooking or steaming vegetables and meat. I think it's capable of cooking/steaming broccoli, salmon fish and cauliflower. Well it's very good cooker I think.

Also I will metion in these rice cooker reviews that design is very simple. This is a basic cooker but yet very good. I like the fact that it weighs only 4 pounds. It's very very easy to carry it around. However since isn't so small it's not that bad for traveling, but it maybe could be better. Another thing I should mention in these rice cooker reviews is that all these pots for rice might spew! But that's why you should stir occasionally and take care of rice-water ratio.

So if you stir occasionally I think it won't spew around so you are safe. Also take paper brush or something, so you are sure your surface will stay clean. This cooker doesn't have a timer function but as I said it's pretty basic cooker and price is very good.
