Features of the Aroma ARC-996
The Aroma ARC-996 Rice Cooker, Food Steamer is designed to prepare anything from 3 to 12 cups of cooked rice.
All these features which we will review in detail below, play a certain role in the rice cooker to ensure that it consistently produces high quality, fluffy rice and equally delicious stew to be served with the rice.
Non-stick inner cooking pot
Nonstick inner cooking pots have become a consumer favorite in rice cookers. Not only are they excellent at cooking delicious rice, but they are also long lasting and don’t come at a premium.
Although their stainless steel counterparts are slightly superior in cooking and durability, they are usually very expensive.
The removable nonstick cooking pot in the Aroma ARC-996 Rice Cooker, Food Steamer has very many advantages. Besides the fact that the pot is highly efficient in quickly and evenly distributing heat to the cooking meal, it is very easy to clean as the rice does not stick to the bottom during the cook.
Several washes later, the pot will still be looking the same as it was when new. The nonstick coating doesn’t flake however much you scrub the pot. You can also toss it in the dishwasher without worrying about it losing its luster.
Perforated Steaming Tray
The name of this rice cooker suggests just how much attention is paid to the steaming aspect of cooking. It has arguably one of the best steaming trays in the world of rice cookers.
The cookers are not only very spacious to accommodate as much stew as possible, but the trays are also evenly perforated to ensure that as much steam as possible comes into contact with the stew cooking above.
The steaming tray yields in very healthy meals with authentic taste. The flavor of the rice below will only improve the final taste of the stew.
Just set the stew/soup and the rice to cook simultaneously and the resulting combo will be one to savor. This will also help you save lots of time.
