Not bad for the price, but not built to last either

Summary: This is a good value rice cooker. I think I bought mine at Target, but I've had it for 5+ years now & I may have gotten mine somewhere else. If you just want something basic, it does a good job at cooking rice and keeping it warm.
Summary: I received this rice cooker as a birthday gift 3 years ago. When I first started using it it worked fairly well except that it never switched off when the rice was finished. I often ended up with a good amount of crispy, burned rice at the bottom.
Summary: I've hesitated buying a rice cooker for years. I've thought, "What can a rice cooker do, that a pan on the stove can't do?" After a friend extolled the virtues of her rice cooker, I thought, "OK, maybe I'll pick one up." I found this model on sale at a local store, brought it home and tried it out.
Summary: I seen a friend using one just like this and it appeared to be really easy to use. I bought one May 12th 2010 and have been using it twice a day to cook my rice. Another friend told me to use chicken broth instead of water to cook the rice in and it works great.
Summary: I have been using this red rice cooker for less than 4 months and now it is completely unusable. I know how to gently clean a non-stick thing but this one is driving me crazy. The non-stick layer just keeps falling off, especially at the bottom.
Summary: I purchased this cooker last July and regret not looking into a new Hitachi to replace the old one which lasted over 14 years (do they still make them?). Unlike my Hitachi, this Chinese made "beauty" MUST be unplugged once it stops cooking, otherwise it'll burn the rice at the bottom, and better...
Summary: I bought this rice cooker from Target for $15. I've had it for a few months now and it works great and cooks the rice easily. The rice comes out really good and it is easy to use. You can cook vegetables at the same time.
