Summary: I've owned several rice cookers before, but my favorite was a Zojirushi several years ago. I lost it somehow and didn't want to spend the money on another one, so I just bought cheap ones. Surprisingly, it made a difference for something as simple as rice.
Summary: I love rice cookers. They're so straight-forward. This one is no exception. You put in the rice, you put in the salt, you put in the water, you push "cook" and go away. Whenever you're ready (after 20 minutes or so) you've got perfect rice.

Summary: This rice cooker does what it is supposed to: cooks perfect rice every time. It is very simple to operate. You do need to experiment to get proportions right, especially with different grains such as brown rice or heritage rices.

Summary: I bought this item from Amazon based solely from the reviews and the price. My experience was so disappointing that after trying 3 times, I gave up. Here's what happened: when cooking 1-2 cups medium grain rice, when the cook cycle finished, there was a substantial burnt/sticky later on the bottom,...
Summary: I bought this rice cooker a couple of years ago because I was having trouble cooking rice on our stove; even on the lowest setting, the water always bubbled out from under the lid. I wanted a small rice cooker, because I usually cook only 1 or 2 cups.
Cook rice daily - disappointed for the brand (after 2-3 years?)

Summary: My parents had an awesome rice cooker that lasted well over 15 years, at least. Our Zojirushi was great at first, but has become a great disappointment. After one year of cooking rice 2-5 times a week, it began burning the rice at the bottom of the pan, oozing liquid out of the top, and undercooking...
