Summary: I bought this 2 years ago but forgot to comment. I still have the rice cooker and there is no complaints at all. It works great and paying extra was worth getting the higher quality. No regrets and will buy another if the need ever comes up.
Summary: I've had this rice cooker for more than 6yrs and use it to cook rice every single day. It is basically for 5 1/2 cups of uncooked rice. The 5.5 cup volume is a little misleading for us Indians. We normally cook rice, rice:water = 1:2 ratio. So basically this rice cooker cooks to a max of 3 3/4 cups of rice (using the cup provided). You will be astonished at the difference in taste between the rice cooked here versus some other cooker.
6 years and still serving perfect rice..everytime!

Summary: Love this cooker and we have this since Nov 2004. We eat rice almost everyday and this cooker served us perfect rice every single meals. Since we do not eat as much rice as we did 2-3 years ago due to a better diet (ahem....to curb the ever expanding waist), we are looking to replace this with a 3 cup version. Doesn't make sense to cook 2 cups rice in a 5 cup cooker. Waiting for Amazon kitchen sale to go on again and we'll get the new 3 cup Zojirushi.
Summary: Once I started using the rice cooker, I never went back to the old way. In addition, I found that I could cook a lot of things WITH my rice, like chickpeas and dried cranberries, and raw sunflower seeds, and fresh vegetables (cut up). Now, I use it to make one-bowl meals. It gets more use than my microwave (which is probably healthier, anyway)!
Summary: This rice cooker is great. The instruction manual is kinda vague, but the buttons on the machine itself are strait forward. DO NOT LOSE THE MEASURING CUP! All the measurements are based on the included cup, so don't lose it, or you will be guessing all the time. Makes white rice perfectly, and the 'warmer' setting keeps it perfect for well over a day. Totally worth the investment.
Summary: I love rice, but despite all efforts, can't seem to cook it properly on the stove. At best, I get so-so results; at worst, it's a ball o'gummy mess. So I turned to a rice cooker a few years ago. Tried a couple of the inexpensive ones, but was not too pleased with the results - sometimes it was great, but a lot of times the rice came out over or undercooked (or even scorched on the bottom).
Summary: Especially with an adolescent in the house. As an adolescent appetite arrived in our house, we took the advice of an acquaintence, and arranged for a rice cooker to arrive in our house. This thing takes all the drudgery out of making real rice (as opposed to instant or any other precooked rice).
Summary: I got this rice cooker brand new and have been using it since 8/2002. My family and I use it 1-2 times a day, every day. Pros: -White rice option works great. -Cute design. -Time pre-set option. -Retractable electrical cord. Cons: -Inner lid can't be removed, which makes it hard to clean.
