Summary: I am happy with it since it has warm functionality to keep the rice warm for extended hours. As far as cooking is concerned I dont see any extra ordinary result as mentioned in the reviews. My Aroma rice cooker also used to cook perfectly, the reason to buy this one was due to good reviews and keep warm functionality.
Took rice from an occasional treat to whenever we want it!

Summary: I have had several of the cheaper on/off rice cookers. They worked ok for white rice, but anything else - forget it. Even with white rice, the bottom consistently got crusty and brown. The stay warm features on those types of cookers have a tendency to run too hot, thus scalding the bottom layer. Now I have a Zojirushi! I rinse some rice in the morning throw it in the Zoji, throw in a little butter and sea salt, set the timer and I am done! Any type of rice!
Summary: This is the best rice cooker I have ever had. I have struggled with making 'good' brown rice for quite some time and really wanted to make the switch to healthier eating. This rice cooker makes the best brown rice I have ever had. My husband agrees. I got a great cookbook through Amazon (The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook), that offers so many more options for using the cooker, but if all I ever did was make brown rice in this cooker, it's been worth the cost.
Summary: Before I purchased this rice cooker I did a lot of research and this one seemed to be the one for my needs. At first I followed the directions for cooking rice and it took about four times to finally get it right.I like Jasmine rice and the manual didn't have any suggestions for how to cook Jasmine rice and my rice kept coming out starchy. I added a little less water than what was recommeded for white rice and it now cooks perfect.
Summary: Excellent choice! I've purchased several rice cookers in the past. The last one I had was a Tiger Brand which I was very disappointed with. This by far was the best rice cooker I've ever had. We cook rice everyday and although it takes a little longer than the other brands I've used, the rice comes out "PERFECT" each time and does not get spoiled easily. One of the best feature is that you can actually see the measurement inside the pot.The pot in itself is heavy duty.
