Rated 1 out of 5Â by Dan L Flat out doesn't work.
Well, it worked well the first two times I used it.
Then I tried to use it today, and it does not work at all.
So I basically got two batches of rice for 15$ a pop, and now I have a broken appliance on my countertop.
The build quality of this cooker is absolutely horrendous. I would not recommend this product to anyone I know (not anyone I like at least.)
Frankly, based on my recent experience with this product, I wouldn't recommend Black and Decker ANYTHING, to Anyone.
How can a company release a product that will quit after two uses?
Rated 2 out of 5Â by jenny120 not worth it
Worked great for the first 5 months. Recently when i tried to use it, it completely stop working. It won't turn on I kept flipping the switch, moving it to different outlets and nothing. Keep in mind i haven't even had this for a whole year!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Honglei Smoking after a few uses
We had our previous 16 cup b&d rice cooker last for many years until the non-stick bowl got scatched. I was trying to only replace the bowl but coundnt find it .it is not environmental friendly to replace the whole set since other parts of rice cooks work fine. Anyway I bought second same model, however it smoked during the second use, we exchanged it, then the same thing happened again. I am now questioning this model are all in defect .

I have been using this model for 2 years. It is the best one out there for the price. I cooked rice for 200 people and asked for people to let me use their rice cookers. I got 11 of them - all different brands. Expensive fancy, small and complicated, simple ones, digital with a bunch of buttons.... but overall, the Black & Decker Rice Cooker Plus was the hands down favorite for simplicity, quality of cooked product and durability. I will also add that I cook EVERYTHING in this cooker. Lamb chops, gumbo, curry chicken, every kind of rice, stew, even broth and matzo balls. I love this machine. My mom has one and my daughter took one to college.
