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.
Summary: I bought this item for a friend to replace the one she had. I accidently broke the lid. : ( She already owned one but i bought a new one. She seems to love it. I may get one for myself now though.
Pros: Cooks Evenly, Easy To Clean, Good Flavor, Multi-purpose, Quick and Easy
Summary: This looks beautiful on the kitchen counter. I have always loved Cuisinart kitchen products. It was a gift, and a very thoughtful one from someone who had never used a rice cooker before. Who wouldn't trust Cuisinart? That's about all I can say that's positive about this product. Don't buy it. I'm very disappointed in Cuisinart.
Summary: I just got this rice cooker out of the box. I haven't used it yet. I just wanted to let everyone know that the cord does not retract for easy storage as mentioned in the description. It was one of the selling points that got me to buy it but it turned out to be false.
Summary: Water and rice boiled over every time right from the start. Very messy to clean up the counter top and floor. Not a good purchase. Burned my hand trying to remove the top to reduce the heat and limit the boil over.
