I highly recommend this rice cooker for those of you who’re staying away from home sweet home, who’d enjoy a good wholesome meal but wouldn’t like to splash a lot of money over cooking appliances; the Sanyo 3.5 cup Rice Cooker with Bread Baking Function is just the thing for you.
Sanyo 3.5 cup Rice Cooker with Bread Baking Function is just what the name tells you. It cooks superb rice with fuzzy logic technology and bakes bread from dough. You can think of it as a combination of rice cooker and oven, with a small footprint of just 11 by 9 by 8 inches.
Sanyo 3.5-Cup Micro-Computerized Rice Cooker with Bread-Baking Function
I like the idea of getting nice warm bread without getting the whole kitchen heated up as well. If you make the dough from scratch, try making it with cinnamon, currants, chocolate or coffee. Otherwise, just buy frozen bread dough or pizza dough to bake in this incredible rice cooker.
The titanium coated 5mm extra thick non stick inner pot is a great feature that adds quality and taste to the rice this rice cooker makes. Sanyo 3.5 cup Rice Cooker with Bread Baking Function is much more durable with this feature, and easy to clean too. Scrubbing? Never again!
The timer is another awesome thing. You don’t have to worry that the Sanyo 3.5 cup Rice Cooker with Bread Baking Function cooks rice over a longer time than using the stove. Just prepare your dinner before you go out and set the timer to have the rice ready by the time you come home. There is even a pre-soak option for better tasting rice. The keep warm function and reheat function will serve you well if you come home late.
This little rice cooker cooks only 3.5 cups so it might be suitable for one to three persons depending on your appetite. Sanyo 3-1/2-Cup Rice Cooker With Bread Baking Function does not come with steamer tray, so if you prefer steamed dishes over warm bread, get the Sanyo ECJ-E35S instead.
If you are the type who like to combine functions in one electronic device, you may like a rice cooker with slow cooking functions too, like the Sanyo ECJ-HC55S, or the Sanyo ECJ PX50S, which is a Pressure Rice Cooker, Steamer and Slow Cooker. Both are 5.5 cup rice cookers though; you can find other small rice cookers here or go to Best Rice Cooker main page for other reviews.
