Summary: this may be the best gift i ever gave my wife. i did a ton of research on rice cookers (had no idea there was such a big industry) and i really researched price vs. value. i didn't want to get a cheap one, and first impression was an outrageous expensive one "must be good".
and they are the best rice cookers we have ever owned

Summary: We have owned two of these for just about a year now, and they are the best rice cookers we have ever owned. As other reviewers have noted, the rice comes out tastier, fluffier and more uniformly than any other rice cooker we've tried.
Summary: I have had this rice cooker for about two years. I've never been able to cook rice until this entered my life. It makes perfect white rices. There is a bit of a crust at the bottom of brown rice, which I actually like. I also use it to steam eggs. Even fresh eggs will peel if steamed 8 minutes.
