Cuckoos are nice cookers. Good choice. I have a Sanyo micom 5.5 cup rice cooker that cooks different kinds of rice, different ways, steams, has a porridge setting and a 24 hour timer. Even doubles as a slow cooker. Not pressurized, though. I usually cook for one or two, but make more than I need. 5.5 cups will probably be enough for 8-10 people unless rice is all you're serving. Leftover rice is never a problem, as I like rice pudding and fried rice, and can always add leftover rice to soup. For me, the capacity wasn't a consideration, as I wouldn't have been able to afford the thing had I not found one in a thrift store, as new, possibly used once, clean as a whistle and with all the parts and pieces save the plastic rice paddle and rice paddle holder. It's OK, I have a nice bamboo rice paddle, works just fine.
