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: I purchased this electric rice cooker to replace the microwave model that I currently own. The electric model is very nice since it frees up the microwave, and takes up very little space on the countertop. All that needs to be done is to measure the rice and water, add any flavorings you wish, plug it in and in about 30 minutes, it's ready!
Nice and compact. Useful for cooking limited quantity rice

Summary: This cooker is very useful if you cook very limited quantity rice, say maybe upto 3 people for 1 meal. My wife recently complained that this item spewed fluffy water all around and made the kitchen counter messy..., so be prepared for this anyway! (I guess all electric cookers do this!) Good buy for the price.
Summary: A thick layer of burnt rice sticks to the bottom if the cooker is on heat mode for even a minute, ie we have to stand around and turn it off the moment it is done cooking. Steam escapes from the vent, often starch water escapes as well and the counter gets messy, even when cooking only 1 or 2 cups of rice. The plastic spoon is not of very high quality and melted!
