Solid, inexpensive rice cooker that has gone the distance

Summary: I bought this rice cooker in January 2007 for about $25 and have been using it two or three times a week ever since. For my simple purposes, it works well and reliably without ever burning any rice. The fact that a cheap rice cooker like this is still working three years after I bought it is a testament to its quality. I remember the cooker doing well with white rice, though since 2008 I eat and cook only brown rice.
Decent size cooker, however creates a lot of junk on the top

Summary: Much bigger than the 3-cup cooker we owned earlier. However it takes a lot of time for it to took, and the water spills a lot, even though there is a vent on the lid. Satisfied over-all, but they should have solved the overflow problem.
Summary: This is the best priced and easiest to use rice cooker. It has a serving spoon, measuring cup, and holder for glass top. Makes enough rice for individual or family. It's idiot-proof. I am uniquely qualified to make that statement.
Summary: I love to make stir-fry but cooking the rice was always a pain. I prefer using the healthier brown rice which is even harder to cook. After some debate I finally decided to try one of these and I wish I'd had made the decision a long time ago! Just measure your rice using the included measure and add water to the line. Add any desired seasonings and press "Cook". When the cooking is finished it automatically switches to "Warm" to keep your rice warm as long as desired.
Summary: I think there are 2 issues with this one: 1. The non-stick container is not really non-stick.. Everytime i cook rice, the bottom portion is mildly stuck, it turns out a little burnt (light brown) and is stuck 2. The device doesn't have anti-slip legs.. if you put this on a polished surface, you can possibly shift its location with a big blow of air.
Summary: I just love this rice cooker. I followed the directions and the rice was perfectly cooked. I like the fact that you do not have to watch it and it does not let off the steam like it did when I used a pressure cooker, Also the fact that you can see it as it is cooking and the pot is removable and truly non-stick. I highly recommend this item. It is also just the right size for a small family. The shipping was very fast and came just when promised.
