The Cuckoo Company was founded in South Korea as the Sunkwang Electronics Company in 1978 — the name change came in 2002, to match the brand name of the products for which the company had become best known, a line of small home appliances, the most popular of which are the rice cookers.
What makes the Cuckoo rice cookers different than the rest, other than the technology, is the result: a glutinous rice cooked sticky enough for chopsticks, done in less than fifteen minutes, or, depending on the rice, as quickly as two minutes.

The Induction Heating technology of a Cuckoo Rice Cooker is different from the conventional methods that use heat from a single heat plate. A magnetic field generates and distributes the heat evenly within the inner pot. All IH inner pots are made of five layers to make best use of the magnetic induction.
The innovative Total Pressure Containment (TPC) system has both a solid pressure-activated solenoid-valve and a soft steam-cap that work together to reduce excessive pressure while cooking.
The advanced fuzzy-logic computer technology is used internally to allow precision heat control for the optimum result. As the rice cooks, the voice-automation feature speaks to guide you through the process, explains what you see on the LCD screen, and tells you the next step.
The CRP-HD1010F Rice Cooker makes rice that is shinier and sticker than any produced by all other types of electric rice cookers. You can set the cooking menu to cook brown rice, white rice, or a mixture of the two — you can also steam rice cakes, sushi rice, stews of steamed meat, or even a sponge cake! And, when you’re not cooking with the Cuckoo Rice Cooker, you can use it to store rice — it’s best, though, to use the rice within one day.
And, not only is the Cuckoo CRP-HD1010F Rice Cooker quick for cooking, with a family-size ten-person capacity, it’s also beautiful in its design and color-scheme. Definitely worth the price, this rice cooker will be a valuable addition to any kitchen.
