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: I chose this rice cooker because of its large capacity and cheaper compared to zojirushi's other 10 cups one. So far..we are very satisfied with the product. The rice cooks perfectly and the warm up setting doesnt change the appearance of the cooked rice. Perfect!! The cooking time is longer (about 50 mins)..but we have no problem at all, as long as we plan ahead of time..overall, this is a good product to be considered.
Quality build. Quality cooking of rice. Akward steam vent.

Summary: I was looking around for a new rice cooker. My old 10 year old Tiger cooker did not kept the rice warm but dried it out quickly. I have seen other cooker offering similar functions at 1/3 the price of this cooker, but hesitate because I was not familiar with the brand name. Searching the brand on internet did not give much info. I bought this based on the good reviews of the other buyers on Amazon. I hope it is what I pay for! I have used it a couple months.
