Mini Electric Rice Cookers show different performance (Taste/Rice cooking) after Keeping Warm
Thanks to the rising number of single households, interest and sales of mini electric rice cookers are increasing. Still, more information is required on their quality and safety.
To this end, Korea Consumer Agency (KCA, President Lee Hee-sook) tested and evaluated safety, rice cooking time, quality of taste and others of 9 mini electric rice cookers* manufactured by 7 companies to provide objective information for consumers when selecting products.
* Daewoo Appliance (DEC-CM3500), Daewoong (DRC-0608), Shinil Electronics (SCJ-PBP10WH), Cuckoo Electronics (CRP-EHS0320FW, CR-0365FR), Cuchen (CJH-PA0421SK, CJE-CD0301), Kitchen Art (KAEC-A350HLS), Poongnyun (MPCKA-03M(B))
Test results showed that while all products showed good taste right after cooking, there were differences in rice cooking time, taste after keeping warm for 12 hours, annual electricity bill and others. In addition, all products met relevant requirements** on safety (elution of harmful substances from inner pot, electric shock protection, Etc.).
* Evaluation conducted by 26 experts (Korea Food Research Institute) trained on assessing eating quality of cooked rice to review sensual quality of cooked rice
