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. The machine is easy to keep clean: the pot wipes out easily, and the lid just requires a wipe once in a while.
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. It only gets 4 stars because the crusty brown rice really is a fault, and I really wish it could give you some kind of estimate of time at the beginning.
Summary: This rice cooker is spacious! The pot that comes with the rice cooker can hold quite a large amount of rice, enough to serve 6-8 people. The inside of the pot has a coating that makes it super easy to wash. All you really need is to add water and rinse. I haven't used too many features of the rice cooker yet as I mainly use it to cook rice, but the brown rice feature is quite helpful for those that cooks brown rice on a regular basis.
Summary: The rice cooks great but it seems to turn the rice crispy too quickly. I have always had rice cookers and I know it should keep the rice warm for a couple of days. This one seems to turn it crispy within a day of cooking. I The other Panasonic rice cooker I had worked much better....would not recommend this particular model.
Summary: What I didn't know about this rice cooker was that while you can make white rice in no time flat (even has a speed cook setting for even faster white rice), making BROWN rice takes a minimum of TWO HOURS. It doesn't take nearly that long in a normal pot, nor does it take that long in any other rice cooker I've owned. Wish I'd known that before I'd bought it, I'd have chosen something else. That said, it does turn out consistently well-cooked rice.
