Black and Decker Rice Cooker is great for a lot more than rice

 

We have had this Black and Decker Flavor Scenter Steamer Rice Cooker for at least 5 years, and it is still going strong. We use it at least 3-4 times per week. It is probably my most used small appliance. The steamer is great for rice, but it also...

Black & Decker Rice Cooker Steams more than Rice!

 

The Black & Decker Flavor Scenter 4-Cup Rice Cooker is definately more than just a rice cooker. I use it to steam vegetables all the time. At first, I thought it was pointless, since I can already steam rice or vegetables on the stove top. However, not...

Black & Decker Steamer is a life-saver at dinnertime

 

My husband came home with this Black & Decker Flavor Scenter Steamer over 3 years ago and I rolled my eyes when I saw it. I remember saying to him that this was going to be another useless appliance that collects dust after the novelty wears off. Boy,...

Black & Decker HS800 Steamer ~ No More Soggy Boiled Veggies

 

After the holidays and my unfortunate lapse into out-of-control pigging out, I decided I had better get a grip and start eating right. Vegetables are something I usually eat just because they're good for me, not so much because I like them. The Black &...

Easy to use and clean, perfectly steams veggies, cooks rice

Bowl too small for larger families, can't steam rice and veggies at the same time

A little kitchen helper that does BIG things

 

Ah, cooking. I really, really dislike it. It's just not my thing. The timing, the presentation, the dish washing...ugh. Anything that makes it pleasant is a definite plus in my eyes. Maybe someday, I'll "get" it and will look forward to preparing meals...

Promotes healthy eating, cost, makes meal prep easy and fun, easy to operate/clean up

Timing seems long for rice and certain meats, doesn't hold large portions

Hot & steamy

 

The Black & Decker Flavorscenter Rice Cooker/Steamer has a permanent and prime location in my kitchen. It never gets stashed in a cupboard or stuffed on top of the fridge with the rest of my small appliances ( am I giving away too much about the state...

Hot and Steamy!

 

When my husband and I were registering for wedding gifts, we saw this Black & Decker steamer and thought we would add it to our list. We had read that steaming vegetables was healthier than boiling them because they lose fewer nutrients when they are...

easy to use, handy guide on the back of base, most parts are dishwasher safe

Mmmm Good Rice

 

My mom got this rice cooker as a gift and I always used to cook rice in it when I was home. It definitely does its job. I've found it is also really good for steaming veggies. Try asparagas, it is to die for coming from this thing.

Great for rice and steamed veggies-healthy

Not Just For Rice!

 

OK, I'll admit it; I never could cook rice. Seems like such a simple thing, yet many times my rice would come out gummy or just a bit dry. So about two months ago I finally gave in and bought this product and I've been very glad I did.

healthy, flavorful cooking, useful for a wide variety of food

relatively small size

The Perfect Tool!

 

My family loves stir-fry. Though I have mastered cooking rice on the stove, I do not enjoy cleaning pans (rice always leaves a scummy residue on my pans). Besides the fact that I love appliances! If only I had more counter space!

easy to use, easy to clean

large & will take up too much space
