Why do they need to put lead in the cord? otherwise great so far

Summary: We've owned this device for about a week now (purchased for $99 on Amazon after considering Zojirushi, other Sanyo models, and a few Aroma models both in-store and online -- definitely expensive, but speedy shipping and perfect condition out of the box), and used it to cook white rice almost daily,...
Pros: Nicely made, easy to use, and steams different varieties of rice to perfection, design and features are well thought out, our family enjoys cal rose, jasmine, and basmati, looking for some super pakistani basmasti to cook up,
Cons: gotta put something down, takes about 40 to 44 minutes to cook 6 units, my old cooker was about 26, however, the added time is worth the wait
Excellent rice cooker! Easy to use, highly recommended!

Summary: I purchased this rice cooker December 2007 and have only good things to say about the unit. - We use it primarily for jasmine rice, which turns out great in both traditional modes (~30 minutes) and quick cooking (~20 minutes).
Summary: Newegg sells the SR-NA18 and SR-NA10 for barely more than this one. Panansonic is a more well-known brand for rice cookers in Japan (Panasonic = National in Japan). Panasonic one also has a stainless steel inner lid, this one is aluminum.
Pros: Cooks rice well, has lots of features.
Cons: There is a bad chemical/melting smell from the rubbery plastic seals around the inner lid and the part holding the inner lid to the outer lid. Other rice cookers do NOT have this. There's a slight smell from the electronics in the back too, but that alone would be acceptable.
Summary: This machine is a real disappointment. I know it's half the cost of the Zojirushi's, but I'd say it's also half the quality. When I first saw that this has a sprouted rice setting, I got all excited thinking it was the same as the GABA rice setting on the Zojirushi IH cooker, which heats the rice at...
Summary: I hope you find the following helpful in making your purchase decisions: 1. Love the timer. People complain that Fuzzy Logic cookers take longer to cook rice, but it doesn't matter if you plan for the rice to finish cooking when you are ready to eat, or when you aren't ready, it'll stay warm for...
Summary: I have wanted an electronic rice cooker for some time. My primary use would be rice, but as a secondary use I wanted something that could also function well as a food steamer. I chose the Sanyo product after reading the reviews on the Amazon site.
Summary: I am very happy with this rice cooker. I have now used it to make rice and to make rice while steaming a bag of frozen vegetables. Each time the rice was delicious. When preparing frozen vegetables in the supplied steaming tray, the vegetables (along with salt, pepper, and garlic powder) were...
Well made, takes a long time to cook (30+ minutes for 2 cups)

Summary: I have my previous rice cooker for 16 years (Panasonic/National), its still working but I saw this one on sale and decided to give it a try. The unit is well built, quite handsome, and funtional. First pot of rice turned out very nice.
