Steamers/rice cookers

Hi. Can someone recommend a good steamer?
My Oster instant steam was starting to spit out black stuff. I took the thing apart. Turns out the water goes through a plastic tube that has what looks like a metal spring on the inside and through the heating element.
So any suggestions for one that doesn't circulate like that would be appreciated.

This should probably help.

What is the best rice cooker?

i got a Panasonic on ebay because we like brown rice. If you only eat white rice, you can get something simple and cheap at Walmart.

I want it more for steaming than for cooking rice.

Not sure what you mean. I just use an adjustable steamer basket with the pots I already have, rather than buying another small appliance.
