Summary: The first one I bought lasted a few years and was so great. So we bought another one. That way we could have two cooking bowls and lids. Unfortunately, the second one lasted only 6 months before the heating element went out. I won't be buying a third unit...
Summary: Maybe it is just me, but I believed it can out 8 cups and it is actually can handle 4-5 cups... It is pretty small I was surprised. And I have 6 people in my house so this is def not enough. But if a small family with 2-3 people, this might just be good.
I love it. Space saving and perfect for two people.

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...
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.
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...
