Panasonic’s new Rice Cookers: More than meets the eye

Panasonic has just unveiled two new rice cookers that promise to revolutionise your kitchen game. The SR-DA182KST and SR-DA152WST models, launched today, are set to become the go-to appliance for home cooks who crave versatility and convenience.

These nifty gadgets are far more than just rice cookers, according to Panasonic ambassador and culinary whiz Marion Grasby. “There are a world of culinary possibilities available at the touch of a button,” she said. From risottos to braised ribs, these multi-talented cookers are ready to tackle it all.

The 10-cup SR-DA182KST in sleek black and the 8-cup SR-DA152WST in crisp white boast a modern, compact design perfect for today’s kitchens. But it’s what’s under the hood that really impresses. Fuzzy Logic technology ensures perfectly cooked rice every time, while the Auto Menu settings cover everything from quick cook to steaming and soup-making.

For busy families, the 24-hour timer is a game-changer. As Grasby points out, “You can put the rice in the cooker in the morning and delay the start of cooking, so you have freshly cooked perfect rice at lunchtime.”

Ease of use is at the forefront of the design, with a simple one-touch control panel and LED display. The non-stick inner pan, coated with binchotan charcoal, promises maximum heat conductivity and easy cleaning.

Ricardo Damiani, Product Marketing Manager at Panasonic, emphasises the brand’s commitment to versatility without compromising quality. “We know that people want versatile kitchen appliances,” he notes, highlighting the multicooker capabilities of these new models.

Available now at leading consumer electronics retailers, the SR-DA152WST is priced at A$169, while the larger SR-DA182KST comes in at A$199. For home cooks looking to expand their culinary horizons, these Panasonic rice cookers might just be the perfect addition to their kitchen arsenal. And if you think you don’t need an expensive rice cooker, think again.

I’m still using my Grain Master Rice Cooker review unit from Philips and I can tell you how good the rice is. If you eat rice daily or at least, frequently, getting a good rice cooker is a worthy investment.
