Panasonic SR-MM10N 5-Cup Rice Cooker/Warmer with Advanced Fuzzy-Logic Technology, White Customer Review
Cars, or new ones, anyway, should be able to do one thing: move people from one place to another. If it can't do that, it's not a car, and I find it reasonable to expect my car to do it. Of course, I have the choice of riding around in a Geo Metro, or in a Porsche, but at their core, they do the same thing. Similarly, I believe that any rice cooker, not just a 150 dollar rice cooker, should produce well-cooked rice every time it's used. Common sense tells me that manufacturers test these things hundreds of times before putting them into production, and so by the time it's on my counter, it should be pretty much foolproof.
Reality doesn't agree with me, however. For four years, I've tried 6 or 7 different rice cookers with varied success. The type of rice that I make, sticky Japanese rice, is part of the problem. Most rice cookers in the United States are designed for long-grain, non-sticky rice, and so most US brands (e.g. Rival, Faberware, etc.) produce dry and/or unevenly cooked calrose rice. The only success I had in the past was an old Panasonic rice cooker, inherited from my father. Sadly, I damaged the bowl about a year ago, and it stopped working. After that, I tried making rice on the stove, but measuring out the water and rice to the same level every time frustrated me.
I had heard about fuzzy logic rice cookers a number of years ago, and, after working in an appliance store for a few months, I decided to buy one about two weeks ago. It works, and works well. Although I haven't tried out the timer function, and I'm a little wary to put any piece of my 0 rice cooker into the dishwasher, I give it my recommendation. If you need a general rice cooker that adapts well to any kind of rice you put in it and have 150 bucks to spare, invest in this product. There are a few other brands of fuzzy logic rice cookers out there, and I imagine that they all do the job and do it well. I've sold comparable products to my customers, and I've only heard praise for them. The Panasonic/National brand was the cheapest I could find, and it works just fine for me.
So, in short, If you're shopping for a new one, skip the Geo and get the Porsche; skip the cheap stuff, and put your money into something that does the job right.
