Summary: Best rice I've ever made. I like it better than Panasonic and Black and Decker. Tastes like rice in a bento box at a delicious restaurant. The sushi rice setting is great, sushi made with it was amazing. Have not yet tried making cake or porridge in it yet.
Summary: OK- so when you hit "cook" it plays a nursery rhyme tune. How cute is that?! Cooks rice perfectly. I was a bit worried at first that it did not have a water collecting reservoir to catch excess water when the rice has finished cooking and you lift the top. But really, it's such a non-issue.
Summary: I've had this rice cooker for two years. It was fine at first, but after a year of use, I noticed it wasn't doing a good job of keeping cooked rice from spoiling. If I didn't remember to unplug it, the rice would rot and develop a horrible smell.
