I am not a rice cooker. Call me plebian but I am not all that fond of rice. So I can not comment on the rice cooker aspect. Slow cooker and soup, I have tested and they work great. You do have to stop and start if you want to add time, at least I did. The slow cooker part allows me to dump stuff in and go play golf and come home to sweet aromas! The soup, I started with the slow cooker feature and ended with the soup feature. I googled some recipes as the ones that came with the cooker seemed overly complicated to me. Check out the photos of my split pea soup. Flat out delicious! Plus it was easy to clean which gives it high marks in my book. I received this item free of charge for an honest review.
