Aroma Rice Cooker/Steamer - Review and Giveaway - US only ends September 2, 2012


Go to Aroma Home Page

Aroma has been around for quite a while now. They offer everything from Rice Cookers, Steamers, Deep Fryers, Ice Cream Makers to Pressure Cookers and much more. They make quality products at affordable prices.

I love rice and always tend to find myself cooking a dish that somehow involves that wonderful grain; whether it be rice inside the dish or as a side dish. When I was given the chance to review an Aroma Rice Cooker, I couldn't have been more happy.  I love the taste and quality of restaurant rice and was looking forward to producing the same results from home. 

I have a family of 5 and felt the 2-8 cup Rice Cooker would be the perfect size. The Aroma Rice Cooker and Food Steamer comes with a steamer tray, measuring cup, and a serving spatula. The steamer tray is good for steaming vegetables or meats while the rice cooks in the non-stick pot at the bottom. The spatula is great for stirring and serving. There are many features of the rice cooker that I love and are beneficial to achieving the perfect meal each and every time. If you work outside of the home, you can set the timer, in one hour increments up to 15 hours, to be ready by the time you get home. Once the cooking is done, the rice cooker automatically sets to warm until you're ready to eat. With one push of a button, you are guaranteed to have the perfect rice ready in a matter of minutes.  The amount of rice you intend to cook will make a difference in the amount of time it takes to cook. The 6 buttons you see below are the Delay Timer - good to use if you're going to be gone for a few hours; to the right of that is the power button; below that is the Brown Rice button; to the left of that is the White Rice button; below that is the Steam button and to the right of that is the Keep Warm button. Each light up accordingly.



There is a removable piece in the back; this is where the condensation is released.




An instructional booklet comes with the Aroma Rice Cooker; there you will find everything you need to know in order to operate your rice cooker. You will also find some recipes; I'm a huge fan of Jambalaya so I decided to try out their version. I included everything except the shrimp, not a huge fan, and I added some diced tomatoes...yum! Here is the finished result:



The Aroma Rice Cooker isn't just for rice, veggies, and meat; it's also great to use for soups and stews.  I can't wait to make more dishes using my new rice cooker. I'm very impressed with the quality, which is something to be expected from Aroma. The clean-up was so easy since the pot is non-stick; that's what I'm talking about!

So, are you ready to make fast and healthy meals that are ready when you are?


HOW TO CONNECT:  You can connect with Aroma Housewares on Facebook and Twitter.

WHERE TO BUY:  Head on over to their website HERE to purchase your own rice cooker.

OR 


That's right! One lucky reader from the US is going to win an Aroma Rice Cooker! Giveaway will end on September 2, 2012.  Good luck to all!

I love using steamers for everything! I use brown rice most of the time, so it takes a bit longer to steam, but it's well-worth it. I'm guessing this would work for quinoa, right? I've been using that in place of rice a lot lately. I love that it's a non-stick lining - definitely makes for easy cleanup! Believe it or not, I've not heard of Aroma so I'm going to go to their website and check out all their products!

Jessica Schank Snow said...

I have wanted one of these for a long time. I recently got married and I forgot to add this to our registry.
Thank you so much for the giveaway!! =)

lcase said...

Ive always wanted a steamer, it would save me so much money. I usually buy the frozen brown rice from Costco that you microwave for three minutes. It would be nice to have a steamer to make larger batches at a time...

abfantom said...

A steamer is a very healthy way to cook vegetables. I have been wanting to get a steamer. Thanks for the chance!

Klydra Pugh said...

I have heard how versatile these steamers can be. I
think they can be great motivation to cook more at home.
Thanks for the chance.

psnyder said...

Love making rice & steaming veggies - would love to win this....looks awesome!!! grammypenny@frontier.com

jodi lasher said...

I would love to win this rice cooker. My kids love rice and they are always wanting me to order white rice from the chinese place because it's always perfect. I would really like it to experiment and try other things to cook in it. Thanks

Cheryl Chervitz said...

I would like to win this because of the easy clean up. I love rice, but it always comes out really sticky, and I think that I could use this to make better rice.

Valerie Taylor Mabrey said...

I have never used a rice cooker so would love to try this

I love rice and the Aroma Rice Cooker and Food Steamer sounds like something I would use frequently.

I have always wanted to have a rice cooker.

Katie Kondek said...

I have always wanted a rice cooker. This sounds like it would be a great addition to my kitchen!

true said...

I eat cream of rice or grits for breakfast and seemingly rice every night. From Risotto to Jasmine to Brown Rice, I've made rice in pots, pans, and slow cookers, but never made any of it in a Rice Cooker. Wonder what I am missing but you know how it is, money is also so tight. Even if I don't win, it's one of those maybe one day things, I intend to try one day.

Hoa said...

My current rice cooker is very old and I would love to replace it with this Aroma rice cooker since we eat rice in our household almost everyday!

alittlepieceofheaven777(at)yahoo(dot)com

Kat of EmKatCreations said...

I have never used a rice cooker before and in fact have only begin to use non instant rice recently. This is a great giveaway!

Holly Marie said...

I had a rice cooker when I lived in Japan (of course they were everywhere there), but haven't seen any stateside. I'd love to have one again, it was so convenient!

BethElderton said...

I've always wanted a rice cooker. I like to cook stir fried rice with tons of veggies, rice based casseroles, and make a home made rice pudding for Hubz' lunches. So easy to carry and reheat for lunch, but something of a pain making the rice. A rice cooker would be a wonderful thing to have.

EMMAHORTON said...

HORTON111@AOL.COM

THIS WOULD MAKE A NICE PRESENT FOR ME..I SIMPLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO SAY...OTHER THAN THE FACT I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS

Ash Johnson said...

I'd love to win. I don't really have any great pots with lids, so I don't cook rice that often that isn't the gross instant kind.

Chrissy Nestor said...

I would love to win this! I don't have a rice steamer now, and I know it would come in handy.

chrissylea1979 (at)gmail(dot) com

llinda29 said...

I would be interested in trying this

firefly201079 said...

i dont own anything fancy in the kitchen so this would be awesome to have!

kellyr78 said...

I would make great vegetarian meals with this steamer, and I Like that many of the nutrients would remain in the veggies.

Kathy said...

I've been trying to find a good rice steamer. The expensive one I bought shoots a gooey steam when cooking.

abilenehilo said...

We all have a rice cooker here in Hawaii but this would make kalua pig easier to make without having to dig a hole in our back yard.

CRahkonen said...

I have been wanting a rice cooker for some time. My rice is always undercooked, overcooked or so stuck together that is just lumps of rice. I have a friend that has a rice cooker and it cooks beautifully. (I am very envious of her rice). I hope I win this.

csue said...

I'd love a good rice cooker. I bought one at Big Lots once, and I forget the brand name, but it only worked twice before it broke!

Wendy said...

Do you think it would work for brown rice? That's my favorite. I'd love to have one for other things too like veggies!

Brynn said...

Thank you so much for the giveaway! I have always wanted a rice cooker

Rebecca IfOnlyLife said...

Yep, works for brown rice too!

AlaskanWolfGodess said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I could really use a new rice cooker as we eat rice at least 2 times per week! :)

Stephanie H. said...

I am glad to see such a wonderful rice cooker My brother has one and they use it for so much more than just cooking rice. Thanks for a totally awesome giveaway.

nicolesender said...

My rice steamer is antiquated and in really bad shape. I'd love to win this updated rice steamer!

joeybenavides said...

I would love to win this cause i can cook rice the right way.. my friend had something similar to this and cooking rice in it came out just awesome...

shanon hyatt said...

A rice cooker/steamer should be a must in everyone's home-It is so convenient and anyone can learn to use one. Being a full time mom,working full time and running all the time-it is worth having one-you put your rice in it and do what you have to do and come back have your dinner is done. Thanks for sharing this giveaway.

Sally said...

This looks like a very helpfull item for the Kitchen. We make our own tamales and they have to be steamed to cook. This would be perfect.

carolwegs said...

I did not know you could do other things besides make rice. What a great idea to make soup in this. I am going to google some recipes for soup. I would use this all winter. thanks

Melanie Snyder said...

Oh wow, I didn't know you could use rice cookers to cook other things.. this would definitely come in handy. I don't have a slow cooker so this would be nice to use for some similar recipes.

mverno said...

good job the sponsor should love your review you've convinced me i need one
mverno@roadrunner.com

Biki said...

I never thought about making a stew in a rice cooker although I have mixed flavorings and veggies in with my rice so it's infused. I guess my brain doesn't work this way so I love the new ideas

Mary Mac said...

These are wonderful. Great way for healthy cooking

freddie said...

Wow what a great rice cooker. I love that it can make soups too. dwelchert@yahoo.com

Natalie U. said...

Need a steamer as we're rice fanatics...here's a recipe I heard for ey Spanish rice 2 cups white rice 4 cups of chicken broth, some stewed or diced tomatoes without the juice and salt pepper and garlic powder and cook in rice steamer

PR4GatheringRoses said...

I'm in Georgia and rice is an essential here. I actually have my late grandmother's aluminum pot just for rice. My daughter keeps trying to steal it -- so I'd love to win this Rice Steamer for her!

pr4gatheringroses AT gmail DOT com

Trasina said...

Well, I just got a lesson! I had no idea you could cook anything but plain white rice in a rice cooker. I have never owned one but now I want one! I love that it comes with some recipes for ignorant people like me lol.

PNatalie17 said...

Its a great appliances can use it for steaming veggies as well

Jennifer Wexler said...

i didn't realize that you could cook more than just rice in one of these, the dinner you were making looks so good

*Monica* said...

I don't own a rice cooker and have always wanted one. This looks really easy to use, I'm already thinking of ideas of what to put in it.

Carleen said...

I like the timer aspect. It would be nice to use it for oatmeal. I am usually really hungry and too impatient to wait for it to cook and just eat cereal. It would also be nice to not have to try and time rice finishing with stir frys.

Sunshine Saver said...

I can't make rice for the life of me! So, that leaves me to use a quick rice of some description...not near as healthy. Not sure what I do wrong...would a rice cooker save me?? Not sure. lol

nightowl said...

This would save me so much time and effort. I rarely cook rice because I don't like cooking it, but with this, it would be so easy.

jspheann said...

I need a new rice cooker! Mine is a tiny 3 cup capacity, and now the rice is sticking :(

Stefanie Elysse Hurtado said...

I love that you can set it to cook at different rates! I would leave it cooking so I can come home to a nice meal =]

kdkdkd said...

I think this could make the whole grain rice I make turn out so much better than in a stove top pan

Jacqueline said...

i need a rice cooker! ive been wanting one!

stefanie gladden said...

I'd love to have a rice cooker! I always seem to not cook the rice right, it would make my life much simpler! thanks for the chnace!!

Lupita said...

In am in need of a rice cooker since the one I had, that I used in the microwave, has missing pieces to it and I would love to win this one and if not I am definetly going to look into this one so I can purchase it, thanks for the review

barkergirl33 said...

I love that its a rice cooker and a steamer (&stews)-I don't own a microwave, I try to eat fresh & healthy and i live alone so using the electricity of the stove/oven for one is such a waste to me. I've wanted even just a rice cooker for a while, this one is great, the timer & delay settings would be so helpful. great review & photos-Thank you!

Jamie Leigh Martin said...

My family and I love rice! This would be perfect for us!!

Carolyn G said...

I had a rice cooker but this is so much better. I love that it is multi-use.

amannin said...

Emily W said...

I have a small rice cooker, and I like it, but I would love a larger one like this so I could make other kinds of meals in it, like soups and steamed vegetable dishes. I love that this one is programmable and has different settings for different kinds of rice/food.

Alexandria Davis, Professional Highland Bagpiper said...

I love rice. I could eat it every day.

Christine Jessamine said...

Elise said...

I am horrible when it comes to making rice, I always end up under cooking it so its still hard. This would be great for me!

sweetsue said...

I would make rice much more often if I had this. Much healthier than pasta!

Vivian Pham said...

I love eating rice since I'm Vietnamese, but I'm leaving for college so I can't bring my family's rice cooker because they all eat rice too. This would be great to take to college with me so that I won't have to go through rice withdrawals!

Jodi said...

I can't imagine how much time this would save and how fun it would be to use!

amber marie said...

having one of these seems like making rice easier i really want one of these

wendym said...

I have never owned a rice cooker. I like that this one can be used to cook other foods also.

jwx4 said...

I've never used a steamer to cook. It's something that I have wanted to try, but have been too intimidated.

Ericka said...

I am sure this would make it so much easier and better to cook rice. My family is huge on rice.

Robin T said...

If I had this unit, I would be able to serve rice at dinner more often. I seem to overcook rice most of the time

I love that it works with brown rice because my family loves brown rice.
BBrittBrat1398@yahoo.com

Derk Thomas said...

Very informative. I only thought you could cook rice and I did not know about the timer and the warm feature. Steaming other items like vegetables and meat is more then a bonus featur.

magicthemonkey said...

i would love to try these

hazelpex said...

I would feel really lucky to win this because I am trying to incorporate more veggies in my diet. I can be happy with vegetables and rice for dinner, so this is the perfect giveaway for me. I'm sure it would be much better than than the way I'm preparing it now.

brich2222 said...

My daughter "borrowed" my rice steamer awhile back and keeps forgetting to return it. I need a new one!

elangomatt said...

Aaron Bretveld

I actually already have a rice cooker, at least that's what they call it. It doesn't do a very good job though. I just made some rice this pas week and it was horribly overcooked, I had to throw it out it was so bad. I'll give it another chance or two, but it might be going away soon if it doesn't shape up!

Sherry Conrad said...

I love that you can make soups in it- that's one of our fave fall meals. :) We had a lousy steamer/rice cooker that didn't do the job at all and I haven't messed with one since, but I know many people swear by them.

Barbara Corella said...

I have always used minute rice in the past. I would be interested in using this product to see how easy it would be to incorporate more healthy brown rice and long grain rices into my meals.

hussagain said...

I didn't realize all this equipment could do...soups in a steamer awesome!

skipthelaundry said...

I didn't know that you could leave a rice cooker cooking so long!
