Summary: We had this product for about 1.5 years where we had no real problems with the unit. It cooked adequately without much problems and very uniformly. However, one day we plugged it in and had no power to the unit. There are no instructions for trying to fix the unit by yourself or solve this problem.
Summary: I have put off buying a rice cooker for years and I am so sorry I did. This is wonderful---it's so easy, just add the rice and water close the lid and wait. It makes the best rice. It's very easy to clean. I would buy it again in a second and not wait so long.
Summary: The Sanyo Rice Cooker is a far better product than I had anticipated. I was simply looking for a basic rice cooker which had a non-stick surface. Additionally I wanted to avoid cookers which had plastic in direct contact with the food being prepared. This cooker provides far more options than I need, but I will certainly make use of them.
Summary: Pros: 1) Cooks good rice. 2) Easy to clean and water does not leak. 3) Unit looks neat. Closed lid allows us to keep rice covered all times. Cons: 1) You need to use atleast 3 cups of raw rice minimum. Ofcourse, it has 20 cup capacity and so this is not a major flaw. 2) After the rice is cooks, it automatically switches to keep warm function. There is no tick sound or any alarm to indicate this.
Summary: A good rice cooker. The warm function is as another reviewer said before, warmer than my old National ricer cooker. If you leave it in warm mode overnight, it will create a thin layer of yellowish overcooked rice. My old National does not do this. Aside from this, it is a good cooker. I would think it can last 5 years with daily usage and good maintemaince.
Summary: This rice cooker basically cooks almost perfect rice. This cooker is good for the price paid. If you want electronic readout, prepare to pay more. After the rice is finished cooking, it will keep it warm, up to two hours without drying out.
Summary: The "keep warm" function is way, way too hot and you cannot turn off the unit. You must unplug it. Bad idea, for the foregetfull, and I don't remember reading about this "must unplug to turn off" aspect, in the description text. Works well enough, and cleans up very easily.
