Oooh I always wanted a Tiger rice cooker (damnit Uncle Roger) but I settled for the $100 cheaper Xiaomi one https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/611834
I bought one of the Xiaomis for my friend as well as this model!
The Xiaomi is a really good buy as well :)
Thanks. Whilst I wait for it to ship, I'm watching Xiaomi reviews on Youtube to reassure me of my purchase.
You won’t be disappointed with Mi rice cooker. I enjoy mine a lot. It’s better than the Jap brand I had before and IH cooking.
If you don’t want to spend $300 on a rice cooker then then best budget rice cooker I’ve found is the smart pressure cookers (with rice/risotto function) for around $50 when on sale. You don’t get hard rice on the bottom (probably due to the high pressure environment), and the insert is of higher quality, so no more chipping.
My rice cooker costed significantly less than $300 and I don't get hard rice on the bottom. I'd say the diminishing returns on a $300 rice cooker over a $150 rice cooker are significant, however if you eat 100kg of rice per year it might be worth it. I guess the real test is how many years they last. Perhaps the tiger doesn't break down like cheaper models with comparable results.
Fair if you eat rice everyday. Personally I’ve found rice cookers don’t break down. It’s the insert that’s the issue. The bottom of it will eventually start to get chipped/pitted - probably due to hard rice on the bottom, and is no longer safe to use.
@bOngOCaT: My previous rice cooker was a budget $60 job (Sunbeam) and the thing that failed was the rubber seal around the rim of the lid, which caused water to leak onto the bench. It last approx 3-4 years before failing. My mother has a Sanyo that has lasted approx 25 years and still works as well as the day it was bought, except the small status indicator globes which gave out about 10 years ago. It does have the unfortunate issue of hard rice at the bottom though!
On the topic of insert pots with non-stick coating, these things are not dishwasher safe. My first rice cooker lost the coating cause I was dish washing it. Always hand wash.
Except for the fact that he doesn't use a Tiger. He uses Zojirushi…
It's just a rebrand
Which one should I get - this or the Xiaomi.
Xiaomi has induction heating which the equivalent for Tiger is like 500 bucks
Xiaomi products is Made in China.
Xiaomi is a manufacturer owned by CCP state-owned linked companies.
China banned so many exports from Australia in the last 12 months.
I had stopped buying anything Made in China.
Prepare to get buy with not much of anything .. :-( .. !!
You will accidentally buy or use something made in China if not careful enough.
Number one rule is to stop buying China brand. It is all made in China.
How does it compare to the newest Panasonic rice cooker SR-CX108SST? It has 4mm thick pot
Sort of looks like on the tiger the steaming basket will hang above the rice so you can steam veggies etc at the same time whereas the panasonic has feet on the steaming basket which make me think it will sit inside the pot. I could be wrong though, apart from that I would think the thicker pot would be better if they are pretty much doing the same thing.
Do you need to use a colander afterwards with this one?
Uncle roger is on his way to your house right now with a colander.
great price, I bought mine 2 years ago for $280.
straight forward to use and the rice comes out nicely but the cooking time seems longer than my panasonic SR-CN188WST (switched because a 10 cup pot for 1 person is too big).
the non-stick is pretty easy to scratch too.
not recommended. It takes 1 hr to cook rice. way too long. Cant wait
Boil & use colander. Cook faster in 15 mins. That's how pros cook their rice like auntie hersha
I’m sure there is also a fast cook function…
Set it on a timer in the morning.
quantity of 0 or less.
I got the ALDI one for about $60, works very well. First time I have been able to cook brown rice successfully.
Used to be every Asian person's dream to own a Tiger… like you know you made it if you got one. Looking at them in awe on the top shelf of the Asian grocers. But there's so many decent cookers around now, and also you grow up and eat far less white rice then you did as a kid. Can't say I've ever bought a 25kg sack of rice. Yes… I'm a disgrace.
Hand in your Asian badge. You're missing out on savings buying those tiny bags!!
White rice 4 life
"Please enter a quantity of 0 or less" OOS
I've updated it thx.
My generic rice cooker cost $25 and has lasted seven years so far with weekly use .. :-) .. !!
