Looking to buy Sanyo rice cooker model n55w. Recommended by cook's illustrated. Anybody know who sells them? Not listed in sear's or hbc etc Thanks in advance
In case you were open to other suggestions, I have had my Zojirushi Neuro Fuzzy for years now and it has never let me down. Excellent product. Also on Amazon, or Pacific Mall.
Funny, I was just researching rice cookers myself, and although I am planning to get a Zojirushi, I am sure that some of the Asian stores that carry them may also carry Sanyo, so you can call to check:
Korean Central Market, 675 Bloor St. West Tel: (416) 516-3966
Mei King Company, 337 Broadview Ave. Tel: (416) 463-0442
Sanko Trading Company, 730 Queen Street West Tel: (416) 703-4550
Tap Phong Trading Company, 360 Spadina Ave. Tel: (416) 977-6364
Tiger Electro Utensil Centre, 311 Spadina Ave., Toronto, ON Tel: (416) 340-1986
and also, you can check with Ashley's:
William Ashley LTD., 55 Bloor st .W. Tel: (416)964-2900
I have a "Rival" rice cooker I bought 14 years ago and paid about $30. Today it would probably cost less. It is smallish and is not Teflon coated. I have likely made 900-1000 batches of rice. I like it because the cord, measuring cup and steamer store inside the unit and I can take it out of the cupboard with one hand!
I am told the Teflon jobs are easier to clean but I don't like Teflon much and find cleaning easy if you just soak the bowl with soapy water for an hour.
Buy something cheap, simple and not too big, use it for a while and experiment to see if you like it.
One of our favourite sides from the cooker is rice, chicken stock instead of water, frozen peas, diced fresh carrot, tsp. curry powder and tbs. butter. Flip the switch. It will be ready in 5 minutes and hold beautifully for an hour.
