Buffalo Stainless Steel Mini Smart Rice Cooker (3 cups)

I cannot use the product as it has no instructions for recipes. It has multiple uses but no recipes and no instructions on how to use it for a particular recipe. I will have to give it away as i cannot use it. The website it recommends is completely hopeless some of which is not accessible. It may be a very good appliance but without proper instructions it might as well be a block of wood. At least with wood you can make a fire and cook something. Regards, Brad Bauer

Thank you for your feedback. We understand that recipes can be helpful, but unfortunately, many major brands such as Tiger, Cuckoo, and Buffalo do not provide recipes for their basic multifunction rice cookers. However, please feel free to reach out to us at, and we would be more than happy to provide you with some basic rice cooker recipes to start with.

Additionally, the user guide included with the rice cooker offers step-by-step instructions for each function.

We will also share your suggestion with Buffalo to explore the possibility of providing more recipes for their 3-cup mini rice cooker in the future.

We appreciate your valued business and support.
