Quick & Convenient Way to Cook Rice
Very quick & convenient to cook rice. If you exactly follow the instructions on the quantity of water & microwave time I found the rice to be dry and not fully cooked. But if I add an extra cup of water and cook for a few extra minutes, the rice comes out very well done

turned into garbage upon first use
I followed the instructions that came with this to make brown rice (which requires longer to cook than white rice).

Part way through I could smell the nutty brown aroma and my appetite was whetted. Then a few minutes later I realize something is burning, I go to my microwave and the bottom of the container has melted completely off and is now a toxic, foul smelling, burning plastic mess, with toasted rice stuck on it.

So, instead of some tasty rice, I have a gross mess to clean up which smells really bad.

I can't believe they would use a plastic bowl that melts in the microwave??? The top green part is silicone and did not melt but it got very brown from the smoke

Nice for Rice - when you get the hang of it
If you're trying to figure out if you want this or not, you're going to be reading a lot of reviews. I did. And I still bought it anyway. The problem is, the majority of negative reviews were due to the fact that people were under the assumption that things ALL work PERFECTLY the first time. They do not.

When you buy a new pan, sometimes you burn food because it conducts heat so much more easily than your old pan. When you buy a new toaster, you have to try out the settings so you don't have a blackened bagel. #4 on the old toaster means NOTHING on a new toaster.

The same goes for the Lekue rice steamer. It's a tool that you have to learn how to use.

You're going to have to test a few batches of rice to figure out what your microwave is going to do. I have an 1100 watt microwave, and I followed some reviewers who had the same - but my rice wasn't cooked. So - I started testing. And I would write down each test - how much rice, how much water, how much time, the heat level. It took me just three tries until I got it right for 1/2 cup of rice.

I think it's easier to cook in larger batches rather than smaller ones. But it works. Be patient. Don't test it on tonight's dinner. Take some free time and experiment. You'll be fine. It works

Check the power of your microwave!!
I use my Lekue rice cooker for brown rice, small pastas, and couscous. The trick is to reduce the power when you use it. All the recipes are based on cooking at 800 watts. Most modern microwaves in the US are 1000 or more.

I've had to adjust the liquid occasionally, but with a little practice, dishes come out super

Works perfectly--if you adjust for wattage
The L�ku� rice steam cooker has been a lifesaver for me; it cooks rice for one (in my case) to near perfection without splatter or overcooking.

The only reason I am not giving it five stars is that the phrase ""Time at 800W"" at the top of the cooking time page could be clearer (e.g. ""All cooking times are based on 800W microwave ovens""--apparently too many words for L�ku�'s multilingual instructions). Since I have a 1100W microwave oven, I decrease the power level, adjust for time, and then it works perfectly

We love L�ku� steamer cases so we decided to try this rice cooker. It melted in the microwave the first time we used it. The good thing was that Sur le Table stood behind the product and refunded our purchase. Kudos to them.
May 20, 2014
Works well (with practice)
Took some practice, but this works pretty well. Every microwave is different, and there are many varieties of rice, so I knew better than to expect perfection the first time out. My primary reason for buying this was to avoid having to clean the bottom of my saucepan, and this cleans up as easily as I could ask for, so mission accomplished!

Couldn't get this to work
Bought one, followed directions, it melted in my microwave. Returned it and got another, put it on super low setting in my microwave, rice didn't cook. Tried one more time, still no luck. Gave up and returned the 2nd one. I'm sure someone can get this to work properly but it sure wasn't me!
September 4, 2014
Not for the serious cook
If you can't cook rice, then maybe this product is for you. I could never get the rice to taste as good as what I can make with a regular pan and lid. It always came out crunchy with their ratios of rice to water. So I tried adding more water. Well, a little better, but the rice was VERY bland. I was using their basic white rice recipe just to test

gift for non-cook who wanted something that can make quinoa and cous cous.
Kelly H on Dec 8, 2015
I've loved using the steamer case for cooking easy meals for myself. Was wanting to make some quinoa in the microwave. From all the reviews I've read, important to make sure you're cooking at 800 watts. Can't wait to use it!
Lynda D on Oct 15, 2015
I bought this for my friend at her request to put in her motorhome where cooktop space is really at a premium.
Janet N on Oct 11, 2015
I have a large electric rice cooker which works great, but sometimes I just want to make a small amount of rice or grains with less fuss and clean up. I'm hoping this microwave container will be quicker and easier with quick cleanup in the dishwasher.

can you cook pasta in this?

It looks very similar in concept to the pasta cooker, and I wondered if you could cook a smaller quantity of pasta in this steamer. For a dorm room it would be great to only need one of the two
A shopper on Jul 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This is not suggested for pasta.
I have a green Lekue steamer. I have not been successful with brown rice. Will this cook brown rice?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this does cook brown rice. If you are having trouble cooking with your Lekue cookware, it may be necessary to turn the power down on your microwave, as these are made for 800 watt microwaves
How high is the Lekue rice steam cooker with the lid on?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This rice steamer is 5"" tall with lid
How long does it take to boil long-grain brown rice in it, please?
And what other foods can be cooked in this?
Alice O on Jan 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Using the brochure that came with the rice cooker, I have a 1000W Microwave, and it calls using an 800W, it says cook for 12minutes, let rest for 3minutes.
This seemed to work nicely even with my 1000W Microwave.
Is the SPOON included?
m t on Jan 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, spoon not included. Would be convenient if they did.
What's the height of L�ku� Rice Steam Cooker?

We have a Jenn-Air microwave drawer and it will allow only less than 6 "" height
A shopper on Nov 24, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This steamer is 5 1/4"" tall. That includes the lid
Steel cut oatmeal

Could this device be used to prepare steel cut oatmeal? If so, are there special instructions to follow in terms of oats vs water
A shopper on Apr 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this can be used to make steel cut oatmeal. Instructions are included
Is the plastic on this item safe to cook in? I see BPA free but is there any other issues? What is PBT plastic?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: PBT is Polybutylene Terephthalate, which is completely safe to use for cooking.It is used because of its low moisture absorption, resistance to staining, and resistance to cleaning chemicals
How to get rid of bad smell!

The lid picked up the smell from leftover rice.
A shopper on Sep 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: You could soak it in lemon juice or white vinegar. You could also make a paste of baking soda and warm water, rub it on the lid, and let it sit for about an hour before rinsing. I've also heard that soaking it in water with a few denture cleaning tablets can help
