I use a super cheap little rice cooker for brown rice, one part rice, two parts water. Set it and forget it.

Until it doesn't, and that is when you replace it. A cheap one will last at least two years, a medium priced one will last about 5 years, and the fancy ones that have three or four different functions can last 10 years.

I have the Zojirushi rice cooker and love it. Perfect rice every time.

I also toast brown rice before cooking it. Just a few drops of oil and stir until it gets nice and aromatic. It works wonders for keeping the grains fluffy and separate, and also adds a nice nutty flavor. I also usually toast white rice first too, come to think of it.

I don't have a rice cooker - I just cook it on the stove top.

I'm very surprised so many American cooks here eat so much rice that a dedicated separate appliance would be wanted or get so much use. I don't eat rice anymore at all, but when I did, I wouldn't cook it more than once a week or so. That's certainly not often enough for a counter footprint with a rice cooker.

I make oatmeal in my rice cooker too. I like to throw in a handful of raisins and some maple syrup.

I don't make a lot of rice but when I do, I do stove top and follow Hinode's directions like I did tonight and it came out perfect in just 20 minutes.
