    For how many servings?

    There's really two sizes on sale here; one that's too damn big for any less than 3 or 4 people; and much smaller ones for 1 or 2.

    Have used this model for years, on my second one in about 10 years

    https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/uk/product-reviews/electricals/a663124/judge-mini-rice-cooker/ is the 2 serving one I use

    I had a bigger Tefal one but it spattered starches all over the place unless you obsessively washed the rice to within an inch of its life - far more than for normal cooking - and if you used the keep warm function it would create gluey clumps. The Judge does neither, I'm not entirely sure what's going on differently. The vent does seem to use offset gaps in metal to ensure there isn't a direct path out but still giving the pressure release.

    Mostly 2 portions is what I need so small one will do fine and not take up too much space.

    I have that one too. It’s great. I add stock, meat and veg sometimes rather than just plain rice.

    I just use the microwave, once you have the timings down it is perfectly repeatable. Has to be the same amounts each time, so using the same scoop/weight, and similar bowl (e.g. a heavy glass bowl would take longer to heat than a thin plastic container).

    I do 1 scoop to 1.5scoops water, microwave 2.5mins so it is boiling, then 10mins on defrost/low power. Big bowls might need 1/3rd power after reaching boiling.
