I love it. Space saving and perfect for two people.

Summary: I wanted a small rice cooker that was suitable for two people. Since we have very limited space here, I wanted something small but that worked well. I figured this would be a good beginner model to try. Any time I try to make rice, it just does not come out right. It's stuck together, all wet and try as I might, I cannot get it to fluff and absorb all the water. I'm just not cut out for cooking rice on the stove top.
Summary: I've had this rice cooker for over five years no issues. I bought it after I got tired of having burned rice at the bottom of the pot and having to scrape it off. This is a small rice cooker which is exactly why I bought it - I rarely fill it up all the way because I won't eat that much rice in a week. It's easy to clean and low maintenance. Automatic shut off once the rice is cooked. Couldn't be happier with it!
Summary: I was very happy with this item the first 3 times I used it. On the 4th try, it started smoking and the lights went out. It has not worked since. Too bad I've apparently missed my window to return this item. Hopefully, my credit card company will credit me as they have a better policy for buying bad products.
Summary: This cooker doesn't make 8 cups of rice -- it makes 8 servings (by their definition) of rice, which is four six-ounce cups (cooked). Although I carefully followed the instructions, my cooker spits, and I have to wipe up quite a puddle of starchy water either during or after cooking. That being said, the cooker makes rice quite well.
Summary: So i ordered this product, when I saw it could fit 4-8 cups, and that is a lie. I planned on making some mean jollof pasta and brown rice with this but when it came, it was too small, and when I mean small I mean it can literally fit just about 2 and a half packs of ramen noodles, it cooks really slow, so i would call this a slow cooker instead o a rice cooker, it looked good and did not come broken, but I will give it a 2 star rating for the wrong info in product...
Summary: The 8 cup description is misleading, and the description on its box is actually fraudulent. The maximum amount of raw rice you can cook in this tiny machine is 2 8-ounce cups, and its actual volume is 6 8 ounce cups. The directions inside let you know that by "cup", they mean "rice cup" which is only 3/4 of an 8-ounce cup. But the French- and Spanish-language sides of the box clearly state that the capacity of the cooker is 1.9L.
Summary: I've had this rice cooker for over a year now, I bought it in Nov. 2012, and have had no serious probems with it. I use it quite frequently, at least twice a week and have found that if you follow the directions that come with it then you will be satisfied with the results. It's also incredibly easy to clean.
Summary: I prefer this size item so I chose this quality brand to replace the larger one that the non-stick coating had failed on. Seems to work quite well and we will see if the coating holds up. This brand has a good reputation, though.
