This may not be the rice cooker for everyone. We bought it thinking we would have an easy clean up an a worry free batch of rice made in no time. The thing that I found funny was the fact that there is not a timer that will give you a definite time as to when the rice will be finished. The only indication that the rice is fine was a small beep. That doesn't leave much room for a set it and forgot it meal if that I what you are looking for with this machine. I can also say that there is a bit of a mess because the pressure pushes bubbles out of the too and that is a pain to clean up. If you don't have the time to clean up or worry, you may want to go for a different rice cooker. I can say however that there has not been a bit of burned rice in all of my time using this machine. The pressure keeps the rice warm as well as moist so aside from the mess you will have rice that actually lasts. I wouldn't count it out before trying it if I were a Wolf Gang Puck fan. Forgot to mention, be careful because this cooker is easily scratched if you use the wrong utensil to dig out the rice.
