Conclusion: I love how fast this heats up. Prepares a pot of rice faster than another brand I had before it broke. We also like the stainless steel and smaller footprint. Nice to have something more attractive on the kitchen counter. And most important, the rice is delicious.
Pros: Durable, Attractive Design, A good useable product, Easy To Assemble
Summary: I've had this cooker for 5 years and only use it for cooking rice. I love it's good looks and confess that's what led me to choose this model. For the first two years I too experienced the boiling over of rice water all over the counter each time I used it. I resorted to placing newspaper and towels under the unit to catch the sticky mess. Not the best solution.
