Very impressive. I do have the high-end Sanyo that slow-cooks. I wish the thrift store had had the one that pressure cooks as well, but beggars can't be choosers, I suppose.

I had an Aroma fuzzy logic one, that could do all sorts of things: white rice, brown rice, sticky rice, steam, slow cooker, stew...

I cannot find it anymore, I think my mom gave it to a thrift store or summat. But now I have a cheep-ish Zojirushi NHS-10. I believe its new for $50 USD, but I got it at Goodwill (thrift store) for $5! Didn't have the steamer thing, but thats ok I just cook rice with it.

You can't go wrong with any Zojirushi, or other Japanese brands: Tiger, Sanyo, Panasonic, Imperial, Tar Hong..

I cook rice in a waterless slow cooker. Before I bought that, i used a rival crock pot. 2 cups of brown rice to 5 cups of water for two hours on low, and the rice is perfect. No sticking.

Two hours to cook rice is a long time.

Yes, but it is in a crockpot, you don't have to watch it, or even think about it, just remember to turn it off.

Thanks for the great advice everyone. I just purchased a Panasonic SR-MGS102 fuzzy logic (pricey at $200 from William Sonoma) and I love it. It has 8 program settings including slow cooking and cake! I have made jasmine and brown rice in it already with perfect results. I really like how the dimpled inner pan is non-stick and the inner lid and steam vent remove for easy cleaning. Thanks again for all of the expert advice in this thread. I would not have purchased a rice cooker without all of your wonderful input!!!

Now you need to learn to cook steel cut oats in it! It is wonderful!!!

There's lots of things you can do in that cooker.
