Summary: I purchased the rice cooker to replace one I bought in Japan in 1990. For the most part, I was not disappointed in the improvements made since then, such as the non-stick inner pot. However, the white rice seemed a bit brown on the bottom.
Good rice cooker. Confusing english/metric markings.

Summary: This has proven to be a great device. It consistently makes great rice and is easy to clean. There is some confusion in the markings on the side. It took a few times through to realize that it was referring to metric and english not water and rice. Now it works every time.
Summary: It's exactly what I wanted. I wanted a simple, no-frills rice cooker that fits in my small kitchen under my low cabinets. I didn't want the kind that keeps my rice warm because that dries it out!
Summary: This is great, you can it's high quality. Rice is perfect every time. Beans are made perfect every time. If you want to steam veggies I suggest you go for the next size up. BUT- if you're just making rice, you're just as good with a 20 dollar rice cooker.
Summary: Many people have bought this brand because of a blog/book by film critic Roger Ebert in which he recommends the 3-cup for single people. But it also mentions that he also uses the 10-cup model, which seems to have more functions than this 3-cup model such as a warm option and steamer.
Summary: We lucked out on a fancy Zojirushi rice cooker 7 years ago at a thrift store. Boy was it durable! Our dumb cat knocked it down from ON TOP of the refrigerator and it kept working like it didn't even happen.
