Rice is a very common staple in Indian kitchens and forms a principal part of meals in most parts of the country. Hence, having a rice cooker in your household can make meal-prep a lot easier for you. Beyond just automating the rice cooking process, it also gives you better results with uniform and non-sticky cooking. In addition to making rice, there are many interesting ways to use rice cookers – making oatmeal, poaching fruits and more. To ensure that you have a good experience, pick one with the right capacity and features you need. Here are some options available on Amazon that we’ve curated based on their features and specifications.

Prestige PRWO 1.8 Litre Red Colour Rice Cooker

The Prestige Delight Cooker comes with a dual-layer design which aims to keep the cooker protected from external damage. While the control panel switch helps you cook with ease, there’s also an automatic mechanism that it comes with. Once the rice is cooked, the cooker switches to the warm mode automatically, which helps keep the rice warm for longer. The power cord on the Prestige Rice cooker is detachable, which makes it easy to cook and serve in the same pot without the cord attached. To make that even easier, the body comes with cool-touch handles that do not heat up during the cooking process.

The Panasonic Automatic Rice cooker’s body is built with ROHS compliant material, which means it is designed to be more environmentally friendly. While the lid is made of stainless steel, the pan is made of anodised aluminium with an aim to be more durable. The body features an umbrella design that helps prevent spillage, which can be crucial to avoid the risk of short circuits during the cooking process. The model also comes with a ferrite thermostat that improves the precision of its auto shut-off feature. The heating element features an overlapping design with no gaps, which promises a uniform heating experience.

Bajaj RCX 5 1.8-Litre Rice Cooker

With the ability to cook 1kg raw rice at once, the Bajaj RCX rice cooker can make rice for your entire family at once while you attend to other kitchen needs. The power level of 550W makes the Bajaj RCX cooker energy efficient, while it also aims to satisfy your cooking needs faster. The Cooker comes with its own aluminium cooking bowl, which features an anodised finish. This finish helps in corrosion prevention and durability, while also aiming to be more heat efficient. Plastic handles on the side and the stainless steel lid ensure that they’re cool to touch even when the cooking process has just finished.

Pigeon by Stovekraft Joy Rice Cooker with Single Pot, 1.8 litres. (White)

The Joy Rice Cooker from Pigeon by Stovekraft comes with an aluminium heating plate, which helps it transfer heat to the aluminium cooking bowl more efficiently and evenly. It also comes with an additional cooking pot that can be stacked and stored in the cooker itself. The Auto shut-off feature ensures that your food doesn’t get overcooked, while the Warm feature keeps the food warm for 4-5 hours – which is displayed by the indicator lights. The design also features a steam vent on the lid for easy release of the steam built up during cooking. As the inner pots are removable, it can be easy to clean as well.
