Evaluation

This product has proven that a rice cooker is an all-round cooking device, and no longer an item just for cooking rice. It cooks rice in a freeze mode on weekends, and makes dishes like cooked vegetables on weekdays. It can be remote controlled away from home. This makes us think we need this only item in the kitchen. This is far beyond just a rice cooker.
