Six cups is the perfect size for a small family. All rice cookers tend to make rice exactly right unless there is too much or too little water. The most important feature for me was the nonstick pan - and what a difference from my old rice cooker!
I had no trouble with excess moisture as some reviewers wrote. The glass lid fits well with or without the steamer, and moisture vents through the little hole on the top. It never boils over - but as with all rice cookers, it is important to rinse the rice before cooking to remove excess starch.
The steamer insert is small, since the cooker is small, but this is a plus for compact storage. I can usually fit all or most of a pack of frozen vegetables in the steamer, but not too many fresh veggies. It makes perfect rice for me, following the simple measuring and cooking directions, and the keep warm feature is very welcome. If you do not need all the bells and whistles of a programmable machine, be sure to choose one with a nonstick pan and the keep warm feature.
The indigo blue color is so unusual and attractive - also a big plus to have a good looking appliance if you leave it on the counter much of the time.

In my opinion, Zojirushi is very much worth the cost and you will use this for a lifetime unless someone comes out with a model that measures, rinses, cooks, and cleans itself.
