If you have a large family or entertain a large number of guests with rice being your favorite main dish, the Aroma 20-Cup model is the best large rice cooker to buy. If you are that sort of person who essentially looks for a ‘no frills’ rice cooker that can do its job efficiently without the latest gizmos that accompany an expensive model, the Aroma 20-Cup rice cooker will fit what you are looking for.
Cook Your Favorite Rice Recipes or a Complete Meal
You also have the added advantage of steaming vegetables and meat in a separate steaming tray while the rice is being cooked. This also works like a slow cooker. The slow cooking function in this rice cooker can be set anywhere between 2 and 10 hours, and you can cook your favorite recipes with ease and then have them warm whenever you sit down for a meal.
The Aroma 20-cup rice cooker is considered the best large rice cooker not only because of its ability to cook both brown rice and white rice consistently well. It also has a nonstick cooking pot that makes cleaning easy, the digital controls are easy to operate and can be set to the exact time when a meal is wanted.
The body is made of stainless steel which makes it extremely durable and easy to maintain. It is great value for money if you are looking for a large rice cooker without many features or latest technology working in the background. When the rice is cooked, a beeper beeps for around 5 to 6 seconds to let you know that cooking is done before it transitions to the Keep Warm mode.
There are very few downsides to this model. The lid doesn’t open up clean and I know some people don’t like that. However, it helps keep messy starch spills to zero. The measuring cup is also smaller than the standard size, you are actually cooking somewhere around 15 cups of rice with this 20-cup rice cooker.
Be sure to add the correct quantity of water to the rice (the ratio is 1:1 for white rice) or else you may end up with burnt rice at the bottom.
I would highly recommend the Aroma 20-Cup rice cooker, as it is an extremely versatile appliance even though it doesn’t have fuzzy logic or computerized functions, and the slow cooking function helps you to cook soups, jambalaya, stews, gumbo, quinoa, and many more items with relative ease.
It cooks rice with the perfect texture every time, and lets you concentrate on cooking other dishes while it silently prepares perfect rice without ever needing you to check the consistency or texture of the rice. Its hallmark is its simplicity and ease of operation. So if you have a large family who eats rice, the Aroma 20-Cup rice cooker is the perfect choice for you!
