Aroma Housewares 20-Cup Digital Cool-Touch Rice Cooker -Review

20-Cup Digital Cool-Touch Rice Cooker model #ARC-150SB

I received the Aroma Housewares 20-cup rice cooker, steamer, slow cooker all in one. I couldn't believe there was a product that was an all in one. This was my first time seeing something like this. I was amazed at all the different cooking methods one unit could do.
I choose to make chili using the slow cooker method. I browned the hamburger combined all the ingredients, set on slow cook 2 hours and walked away. 
One of the first things you will notice with this cool touch rice cooker is the neat digital display.

Buttons and functions:
  • Power/Keep-Warm- functions as both a power button turning the cooker on and off, and a option for keeping your food warm and ready to serve. The rice cooker automatically switches to over to 'Keep Warm' once the rice is finished cooking.
  • White Rice- functions perfectly for creating restaurant-quality rice automatically.
  • Brown Rice- ideal for cooking brown rice and other tough-to-cook whole grains to perfection.
  • Steam- perfect for healthy side dishes and main courses. Set the time food needs to steam, it will begin to countdown once water reaches a boil and will shut off once the time has elapsed.
  • Slow Cook- transforms the rice cooker into a 3-quart programmable slow cooker. Set it to cook from 1 to 10 hours for all your slow cooked favorites.  when your done slow cooking it switches to keep warm.
  • Delay Timer- allows for rice to be ready right when it's needed. Add rice and water in the morning and come home to delicious rice ready to eat.

The Aroma Housewares 20-Cup Digital Cool-Touch Rice Cooker (ARC-150SB) is another example of Aroma Housewares continued success in kitchen appliances. 
This amazing device features:
  • Prepares 4 to 20 cups of cooked rice
  • Steams meat and vegetables while simultaneously cooking rice for healthy, one-pot meals
  • Easy-to-use digital controls for White Rice and Brown Rice
  • Programmable Steam and Keep-Warm
  • Slow cook sets from 2 to 10 hours for deliciously tender meals
  • Locking lid seals in moisture to seal in flavor and keep food fresh
  • Beautiful brushed stainless steel finish keeps cool
  • Nonstick inner cooking pot removes for quick cleanup in the dishwasher
Packaging includes:
  • 20-Cup Digital Cool-Touch Rice Cooker
  • Nonstick inner cooking pot
  • Steam tray
  • Measuring cup
  • Serving spatula
  • Detailed instruction booklet
I Also want to point out the fact that when you open up the lid, normally the excess moisture runs off onto the counter or in the food-eww.  Not with this product!  There is a built in moisture catcher!   as soon as you open up the lid the the excess water runs off into its own catcher.  when your done cooking the catcher pops out easily dump the water and done.  No icky mess to clean up!
Clean-up is a breeze. The removable inner pot is non-stick is also dishwasher safe.   All of the accessories included with the unit (steam tray, measuring cup and serving spatula) are all dishwasher safe as wella huge plus in our household! 
 Overall this is an A+ unit based on performance, features, ease of use, versatility and value.
