“Should have got takeaway...”

published 03/04/2008

Fast cooking, filling

Taste!

**~~**~~**~~** Uncle Ben's Express Egg Fried Rice **~~**~~**~~** It's gone 11pm, we've got no money for takeout and we're starving after a marathon guitar hero III session (it's bloody ridiculous how addictive that thing is). After searching through the measly offerings in the cupboard (remember...

Quick and easy to cook. Good choice of flavours.

A tad pricey.

Although in general I try to eat freshly cooked foods, working nights lately has meant that I have to eat either sandwiches or microwave meals. One of my staple foods has become Uncle Bens Express Rice. The range itself is rather large with many different flavours to choose from. These include...

“Ready steady microwave”

published 08/11/2003

Quick and doesn't taste too bad.

not great.

I am divorced and have my son and his girl friend living with me in my house, which we have divided up so we each have our own set of rooms. This gives Adam and Lisa a little bit of space, to live their own lives until they are ready to move on once Lisa has finished at university and Adam has...

“Rice in a Rush”

published 30/03/2006

quick 'n' easy

pretty darn pricey

I fancied some rice the other day. I had some left over chilli con carne from the day before (God bless Tupperware), so I dug out my economy-sized sack of Tesco Value Rice (guaranteed minimum 10% weevils) and was just about to pour a generous handful into a pan when I glanced at the cooking time...

Super quick to make, fairly filling

Utterly tasteless, soggy AND hard

Uncle Ben's Express Microwaveable Rice: (I felt compelled to write this review after seeing glowing recommendations of this product - I can't quite believe they've been eating the same rice....) This is the simplest quickest "meal" you'll ever "make". Simply tear a small (2cm) gash in the top of...

Handle With Care As It Gets Red Hot When Cooked.

During the week when I've had a long day at work cooking a proper meal is often the last thing on my mind and so I have found myself opting for ready made meals and quick fix snacks. I know that it's not ideal but the range of products out there for lazy people like me has definitely improved...

“Rice Which Is Quite Nice”

published 04/04/2008

cooks quick, tastes fresh

-

I am not really much of a cook and although I am good when it comes to cooking things like meat and pasta, if there's one thing I really cannot cook it is rice. I have never really understood how to cook it, I know it can be done in the microwave or it can be done on the hob but still I just...

“I like this uncle!”

published 04/06/2005

quick and easy

cost

Im a typical lazy student, who works two jobs and eats badly. So finding these rice pouches was a revelation. I personally dont see the point in the plain ones (although i tend to have some in the cupboard anyway) but i love the egg fried and mushroom versions. I try to cook fresh food as often...

Very quick and perfect results

Costs v portion size

When I moved house in 2003, I was given a packet of Uncle Bens Microwaveable Rice as part of the 'welcome pack' from the Removal Company!! I had never heard of it before, but it was a godsend as I only had a microwave oven and electric wok to cook in. Since the discovery of this product, I have...

“Rice is nice (this aint)”

published 03/01/2008

Quick to cook (2 minutes)

Horrid taste/ waste of money

Uncle Ben's Mushroom flavoured microwavable rice. I did not even know I had a packet of this until I checked through my cupboard last night and found it among the cous cous and other "quick snacks" or "replacement meals" as I call them. I read the instructions on the back and found it takes 2...

Cooked in just 2 minutes!!!

Can taste a bit bland, price

This product is absolutely fantastic for all those who want a quick and easy meal. It also boasts the beauty of not having to wash up! All you have to do is tear the 2cm off the top and stick in the microwave for 2 minutes. After that you wait 1 minute for it to stand and hey presto, you've got...

“Uncle Ben does it Again!”

published 29/11/2005

quick and easy to make, tasty

none that i can see

The Uncle Ben's Company is famous for its cook-in sauces and boil in the bag rice, but now they have invented express rice which is cooked by simply popping the microwave for two minutes, great if you can not cook like me. A Bit of History about Uncle Bens...

“Just not the Real McCoy”

published 20/10/2008

quick, filling, easy

not that great tasting, fairly expensive

Okay, so you've made the curry, the takeaway is closed and theres nothing left in the cupboard, who you gonna call? Nobody is the answer to that question, because that would be stupid. Uncle ben's express rice on the other hand is the solution. It is very easy to make; taking only a couple of...

“Convenient Rice in a Packet”

published 21/05/2007

Quick and Easy

A bit on the sticky side

Uncle Ben’s Microwaveable rice is a great convenient way to finish a meal or even just as a snack on its own. All you need to do is tear the corner of the packet slightly, put in the microwave for just 2 minutes and you have hot rice ready to go. These come in several different flavours, and I’m...
