Summary: Cooked instant rice and normal rice perfectly. Thought I'd have to worry about greasing the pan, or any different cook times for different rice but nope, I can just set it and walk away and it does all the work/worry for me. Can't wait to try potatoes.
Summary: I purchased this on 12/16/13, and it was broken by 02/14/14. I don't eat a lot of rice. I used it a total of 3 times. It did a good job while it lasted - the rice did not burn to the bottom and the warming function worked well. 10 cups is a really optimistic amount of rice - realistically it makes about 6 cups max. The quality is not the best. The aluminum of the liner is very thin.
Summary: I purchased this rice cooker to give it as part of a Christmas gift to a needy family here in Hawaii. The church that I go to participates every Christmas in giving gifts to families in need and I felt since most people here eat rice as a staple, some family could use it. I have one just like it and it works great.
Summary: I got tired of cooking rice in order to have good rice you have to pay close attention to it. With this rice cooker it makes perfec rice every time. I also use it to steam vegetables or make rice and vegetables together. What I like most about it is that it when the rice is finish cooking and will automatically to stop cooking and switch over to warm. Perfect for cooking all types of rice with different flavors.

Summary: I love the simplicity of this product, and it makes great Quinoa. I used my daughter's all summer. But when I got my own it only lasted three uses before failing to turn on, as others have also reported.
Summary: Says it holds 5 cups uncooked and 10 cups cooked. The term cup doesn't mean what you think it means. There is a little plastic cup that comes with it that is less than 8 oz. I think it's 6 oz. I sent it back and Amazon refunded me. I can't complain about the return process. She ended up getting a 16 cup that's more like what she wanted. Just remember in rice cookers, a cup is not 1 cup.
