This doesn't have any bells or whistles, and I can't speak for its durability over time (we just got ours) but it cooks the rice. It is slower than my old (doa after only a month, btw) but much more expensive cooker, but I'm willing to take an extra ten minutes. As for the directions saying it will cook 3 "rice cups" of rice to make 6 serving cups, it does...but barely. It is literally pressing against the lid when you do. 6 cups is also more than enough for two people unless you are couple of really big eaters. All in all, I'd say this is good for up to four people normally. I can put on the rice and then get out the other ingredients, prepare them, and cook them, all while the rice does its own thing. No worries about forgetting the time and scorching the rice. If you are cooking 3 rice cups of rice with 5 1/2 c. of water, you will have some spill-over. Keep the cooker on a plate, pan, or paper towel to catch the mess. A damp paper towel or cloth laid lightly over the steam vent will also contain the sputters from it while allowing the pot to vent. Don't leave the rice to keep warm too long or you'll have a rice cake too. It will stay hot for about an hour after you unplug it with the lid on. It isn't fancy, but it does the job efficiently, without breaking the bank if it fails after six months.
