Summary: Yeah!! Gaba brown rice and steel cut oats cooked for hours. I have come to live out this machine. I only make the two things I mentioned so far. I plan to look more into the slow cooking options, however, with the "keep warm" cycle I am able to add my ingredients to this machine-vegetables, rice...
Summary: This is a great rice cooker. After getting this, I appreciate rice a lot more and have started buying nicer quality rice. The umami setting takes a long time (more than an hour), so I start the rice before I start cooking everything else. It's perfect every time.
I can say that it's not that great. My older Zojirushi cooked rice a lot better ...

Summary: After using this rice cooker for two years, I can say that it's not that great. My older Zojirushi cooked rice a lot better and had a retracting power cord. This umami version needs some adjustment with regards to the program as the rice just doesn't come out right.
Summary: Seriously, if you do anything with rice this will make you feel pretty functional. I mean yeah it costs more than the sauce pan that you already have but if you want to make your life easier then just get this. Sometimes, I'm realizing, it's ok to treat yourself to something extra.
