My husband and I bought this rice cooker a year and a half ago for our anniversary. We were a little worried about the quality of it, since it was a $25 rice cooker, and had heard several horror stories of how low quality rice cookers would boil over onto the counter while cooking. It was a good deal though, and we figured that if it didn't work, we could always return it. In the year and half that we've owned it, we regularly use it at least 1-3 times a week. It's incredibly easy to clean, and we've only had it boil over once (to prevent this, make sure that you only use the recommended amount of water for the rice, and make sure that the hole the steam comes out of is well cleaned). We've used it for making both short grain sushi rice and long grain rice. Has worked perfectly with both white and brown rice. It even comes with a rice paddle and rice cup. We absolutely love it, since my husband and I live alone and we don't have to worry about having a whole ton of extra rice left over. Only complaints:
~There is no "Off/On" button. When you plug it in, it starts heating up. The only way to turn it "Off" is to unplug it. This is easily remedied by not plugging it in until the rice and water are all ready to go, and unplugging it when you take the rice out. Still, it's a little annoying, so it loses a point for "features"
~Cleaning all the little nooks and crannies on it can be annoying, and gunk will build up under the seal, along the edges and in the vent if you don't. This is probably true for all rice cookers, so I didn't remove any points on my rating for this. SO... If all you want is a small rice cooker that cooks rice and does it well, then I would suggest this little guy in a heartbeat. Its got a LOT of bang for $25 bucks!!
