Cuckoo CR 0351F Rice Cooker Design

The Cuckoo CR0351F has a sleek and beautiful design with a very small footprint. It actually is a small and compact rice cooker measuring at 7.80×8.9×11.50 Inches and weighing about 5.5 pounds which makes it easy to store, and transport from one place to another.

It has intuitive controls with well arranged and clearly labeled buttons on a control panel at the front side. Also, the digital timer makes it easy to keep track of the cooking cycle. The non-skid feet ensure the device sits stable on your kitchen counter while you cook. All in all, you will find it extremely hard to find any flaws in the designs because there aren’t any.

Features and Functions

If you follow small rice cookers closely, you’ll realize they don’t offer you much liberty in terms of the type of rice and other meals you want to cook. With Cuckoo CR 0351F this is not the case. The Red Beetle lets you cook choose from glutinous, mixed/brown, porridge, GABA, steam and turbo cook.

The rice cooker has a cooking capacity of 3 cups (uncooked) rice which easily yields 6 cups perfectly cooked rice enough for 1-3 persons. Quick and easy! The re-warming feature doesn’t take more than 10 minutes and it doesn’t change the taste at all. Rice, oatmeal, meat, soups, bread pudding, no matter what you cook, everything will come out incredibly delicious.

Unlike the smallest rice cookers, Cuckoo CR 0351F is equipped with smart cooking technology. The rice cooker features fuzzy logic technology which makes it capable of monitoring and learning your cooking cycle. It can easily make minor changes in temperature, time and pressure in order to give you perfectly cooked meals.

Another useful feature that Cuckoo CR 0351F boasts of is the auto shut off capability. Some of us are always in a hurry or tend to forget to turn off the devices. The rice cooker’s auto shut off feature makes sure the device shut off automatically when not in use. This useful feature also saves us from worrying about electricity bills and fire hazard whenever you forget to switch the cooker off.

Other features include the non-stick coated inner cooking pan which not only prevents rice from burning and sticking to the surface of the pan but also makes cleaning easy. The turbo cooking feature halves the cooking time if you can’t wait to have your rice ready. Turbo-cooking gets your rice done in just 12 minutes, how convenient is that?

While keep warm keeps your rice at serving temperature once cooked, the delay timer is handy when you want to plan your dinner in advance. Small in size, the cooker has all the necessary and advanced features packed in that you might be looking for.
