Panasonic SR-G06FG

Pros
  • Easy to use
  • Compact size
  • Cooks quickly
  • Works well with white and brown rice
  • Comes with steamer basket
Cons
  • Bubbles over when completely filled
  • Rice occasionally crusty on the bottom
  • Not as adept with sushi and sticky rice
  • No keep-warm setting

The compact 3-cup Panasonic SR-G06FG is the best basic rice cooker, according to reviewers. Consumer reviews say that it can't compete with more advanced rice cookers, but it cooks rice quickly and doesn't take up much counter space. Rice usually comes out fluffy and tender, but some batches come out crusty on the bottom. Its small size, however, means that it can't accommodate larger families. Rather, owners call the Panasonic SR-G06FG a good choice for singles or couples who don't eat rice daily. Experts say that while the SR-G06FG does a suitable job of cooking white rice, it's not recommended for brown rice. If you eat brown rice regularly, consider the Sanyo ECJ-N55W (*Est. $50) , a budget rice cooker that can handle brown rice.

We found the most thorough review of the Panasonic SR-G06FG rice cooker at MetaEfficient.com, a product review website, where it is compared to five other rice cookers. We also found several owner-written reviews at Amazon.com. Some reviewers are more concerned with Amazon.com's customer service than with this cooker's performance, but most reviews are informative.
