Summary: To the other helpful reviews below, I can add a few points. Size/Capacity: Should you get the 3, 5, or 10 cup? * As a rule of thumb, I would offer that the 3 cup cooker may be good for singles & couples; the 5.5 cup for families; and the 10 cup for those who want to make a whole lot of rice, or...
Summary: Zojirushi rice cooker is amazing. I thought it was pretty expensive but its well worth buying it. If you really want to enjoy white rice try the rice cooker. The rice takes a long time to cook rice which it is aproximately 1 hour and 15 minute wait for extra fluffness.
Summary: This rice cooker is one of my favorite purchases for my kitchen. I love rice, but I hated cooking on the stove since it's very hit or miss, and the cheaper rice cookers I tried always boiled over or left you with overcooked rice.
Summary: This is very nice rice cooker. Size, shape, convenience are all great. Does a great job with white rice. It keeps rice nicely warm for days if needed. The one exception is brown Basmati rice. The brown rice setting will produce overcooked, mushy rice every time.
Summary: We bought this rice cooker in March 2008 based on favorable reviews. It worked fine for about a year and a half, then started to have problems starting the cycle. Sometimes it wouldn't start at all; sometimes it would start, then turn off.

Summary: This is a rice cooker. It cooks rice. It can cook other things like porridge, cake, or pudding, but its primary raison d'etre is turning hard grains of rice into fluffy goodness. The question remains, how much do you value fluffy goodness? So, do you need a fuzzy logic rice cooker?
Summary: We use this machine to make hot oatmeal, The night before, we put the right amounts of steel cut oats and water into the machine. We press one button to select "porridge" and another button to start the machine. That's it.
Summary: This is a good little rice maker. The design is compact and allows it to be stored under a cabinet and can be slid out towards the front of the counter to let the steam out. I like the retractable cord. I've had this for about a month and it has worked well.
Summary: I just received my Zojirushi NS-TG10 from Amazon yesterday (which, by the way, Amazon says it their #1 rice cooker for sale :) I live in the town of Castle Rock CO, which is 6202 feet. I have found NOTHINIG in the way of a rice cooker that works at this altitude.
