  1. Great content on the website. I will want to know which rice cooker you usually recommend if someone asks you for a recommendation? If I have low budget then which cooker should I buy which could have the highest value in terms of quality?

    • Hi, thank you for visiting my site and for the kind words. As you realize, these are all Amazon bestselling items, most of them with really good prices and this is partly the reason for their popularity. They are also very different and we all have different priorities. So what is great for me, may not be the best option for you. I suggest that you have a look and let me know if you make a short list, then I can give some suggestions.
