Features of the Aroma ARC-6106 Turbo Convention Rice Cooker/Multicooker
Any good quality rice cooker should have a combination of both software and hardware working together to produce a delicious cup after cup of rice.
The cooker should be controlled by a microprocessor and a tailor-made software able to gauge the heat and humidity within the cooker and use the data to conjure up nothing short of tasty rice with the original flavor and intended texture.
The Aroma ARC-6106 Turbo Convention Rice Cooker/Multicooker is laden with revolutionary features which make the rice cooker very effective and usable in your household.
Here is an in-depth look at the individual features and components of the Aroma ARC-6106 Turbo Convention Multicooker which make it a gem;
Programmable digital controls
The brain of the Aroma ARC-6106 Turbo Convention Multicooker is an easy to use, programmable microcontroller with digital controls and a number of functionalities.
Perched on top of the rice cooker for easy access, the digital controls properly laid out and confusing them is practically impossible.
The rice cooker has functionalities such as a delay timer, white rice, brown rice, quick rice, keep warm, cake, porridge, oatmeal, soup, stew, slow cook and the revolutionary Sauté-Then-Simmer (STS) technology.
These are functionalities which are not common in most rice cookers and they give you the freedom to cook literally anything you want in this multicooker.
The Sauté-Then-Simmer option is particularly very popular as it lets you heat the food at very high temperatures and then the cooker will automatically switch to its simmer mode once you add any liquid.
This technology not only reduces the amount of time used to cook meals, but it also helps to evenly cook foods through the simmer mode.
With this functionality, you can cook great risotto and other stir-fry dishes and impress all your friends and family.
The quick rice option is the other option that has helped this cooker to scale up the ranks. Quick rice cuts the cooking time by more than 60% which makes this cooker handy for people who are always on the move and don’t have enough time to wait for meals to cook for hours.
It is important to note that the resulting rice from the quick rice option is not any worse compared to the rice cooked under the normal cooking conditions.
The other options are pretty straightforward and you should be able to easily use them to get the best out of your rice cooker.
To get the best result, always ensure that you select the right functionality from the cooker and use the recipe guidelines properly.
Nonstick inner pot
The inner pot of a rice cooker plays a very important role in determining the final outcome. It determines how well a meal will cook, the taste of the food and smell of the food cooked in the rice cooker.
Nonstick pots are very popular because they evenly distribute the heat to the food to ensure that the food is properly cooked and they don’t get food stuck to the bottom of the pot.
The nonstick pot used in the Aroma ARC-6106 Turbo Convention Rice Cooker/Multicooker is made from high-quality metal for durability.
The pot is also designed to be removed and replaced with ease to make it easy for you to wash the pot and the interior of the rice cooker with ease.
Washing the nonstick pot is very easy now that it doesn’t have food sticking onto the surface.
The Aroma ARC-6106 Turbo Convention Multicooker has a wide steaming tray that sits just on top of the nonstick inner pot. The steaming try is important as it helps you to simultaneously cook rice while you steam veggies, meat or any other stew above the cooking rice. Just like the cooking pot, the steam tray is easily removable and you can clean it with relative ease.
Durable heating coil
The ARC-6106 Rice Cooker is heated by a high-quality heating coil which consumes 120V/60Hz 600W of power. This is the conventional power consumption of most appliances so you shouldn’t be worried about paying higher bills.
