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
27 July 2008
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 bought this rice cooker after my boyfriend suggested it to me and I am glad that I have it now. It is all that I want in a rice cooker.. good quantity, compact, reasonably price and most importantly, rice gets cooked very well. I have been using this for about a month now, and I find that the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan such that I have to soak it and scrub it to get it off. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Summary: This is a piece of crap. We've had it for just a few months and it makes a big mess. Also the nonstick pan is teflon and it chips off after some use. The rice usually gets burnt on the bottom. Looking for a better quality one that won't make a huge mess.
Summary: This rice cooker failed after just a few months. It made great rice for a time and then suddenly, in the middle of the cook cycle one day, I smelled an electrical burning smell and the rice cooker quit working. As I have checked other Black and Decker rice cooker reviews, I see this is a common problem. I fought with customer service of Applica (the company that makes BandD small appliances) for several months.
