Jasmine rice score View more details.

We cook both jasmine and brown rice according the manufacturer's instructions and assess the quality of the cooked rice. Good quality cooked rice should be firm, separate and neither crunchy in the centre nor mushy on the outside. We also checked for browning of the rice at the bottom of the bowl.

Sealed lid View more details.

A sealed lid usually means less of a mess on the kitchen bench, but these units can be a bit more complex to clean, having an inner lid that's removable and an outer one that usually isn't. The steam vents in these also need to be cleaned – some have removable vents, but many do not.
