I LOVE my rice cooker!
I can set it up and let it run, the rice is always still nice and warm but not overcooked when dinner is ready.
I can cook a lot or a little and it still turns out nice.
I can cook white, brown, black, rissoto, wild - it all turns out great. I can add butter, chicken broth, black eyed peas, cheese, veggies, a can of bean with seasoned sauce... it always comes out right.
I have a whole book of recipes. LOVE the rice cooker!
