I've only had this unit a few days and I'm impressed.

It made mahogany rice better than I can do in a pot. All other rice cookers that I tried left mahogany/wild rices hard and without flavour. The mahogany rice was fluffed up to more than double the volume I started with - each and every kernel was completely cooked and soft! There was no scorching or harder layer next to the pot.

Oatmeal made with milk (not water) was always burnt in previous rice cookers. Not here. When we got up, I opened the unit and added more milk and sweetener as all the milk had been absorbed. After my shower, the additional milk had been heated through. Spoon the oatmeal into a bowl and serve. Can it get any easier??

This unit does not take up as much counter space as other cookers that I've tried. You can tell from the start that it is a well made unit. The inner pot has the weight of a good quality pot - not some light aluminium thing. This helps even out the heat and the food doesn't start to cool down right away. The cord is short as most good appliance cords are so you don't have to coil it up on the counter. It is a heavy weight cord which shows the quality involved but also means that it is a little stiff.

Clean up is a breeze. The pot rinses out with a quick pass through the soapy water (even dried on oatmeal). The inner lid easily removes for cleaning. In fact, the inner lid dropped out with the press of the tab and was just as easy to snap back in place. A quick wipe inside and out is all that was needed.

I like the timer. You set the time that you want the food to be done and which type of cooking (white rice, etc) and walk away. I'm no longer figuring out how much time until supper.

This rice cooker works very well. It's easy to use, easy to clean, and reliably makes perfect rice. Your rice will be ready at exactly the time you set on the timer. I also use it to make steel cut oat porridge, again ready exactly when I request. Everything feels very high quality. The manual is clear and concise.

I've had this unit for about a year or so and I might make a few bowls of GABA brown rice once a month and every single time, it's been the perfect cook. I can't compare this unit with any other rice cookers as I was previously cooking with a regular pot on the stove, but the fact that rice cooking can be so easy simply blew my mind; You toss in the rice, toss in the water, hit a button and once it chimes you have exactly what you'd want - a perfect bowl of rice. I use the word 'perfect' sparingly in every day life, but in this case I don't know how you could improve upon this little guy.

The cord that plugs into the cooker just does not fit snugly. The slightest movement and it comes loose. Shame that a detail like that ruins the experience with an otherwise excellent product.

I wanted to buy a proper rice cooker for a long time and was never able to find this model at the right price. Amazon hit the nail on the head with a great discount alongside a rebate for signing up for their Amazon VISA.

I love this thing. We are a family of two adults plus one toddler and we usually only make small quantities of rice so it fits the bill perfectly. I made GABA brown rice this morning and it will be ready when I get home for lunch, then will be perfectly kept warm until I get home after work.

I also use it for Congee, although I slightly modify the recommended ratio to fit my personal taste. I just turn it on before bed and wake up to perfect Congee every time.

Also, the pot is super easy to clean ... more so than any other non-stick pot I own.

I have brought this across Canada in a moving trip and it is still going strong. Makes rice pretty well, and I really enjoy the 'Quick Cooking' function for those times I am in a rush. Makes rice porridge very well (I like mine a bit watery so I boil some water and pour some in after cooking).

Cons:
Rice is a bit wet right when the cooker is done. I let it set for a bit in the warmed container to let some of the moisture evaporate.

We originally bought this 3-cup unit but we found it a little bit small. It's not actually 3 standard measuring cups, it's a special rice cup which is approximately 2/3 of a standard cup.
Our major beef however was with the power cord. It's extremely large and stiff. It's a 12-Ga cord which is suitable for a 60-amp appliance! It's totally overkill and makes the cord unmanageable on your counter as it doesn't bend at all and gets in the way.
FYI, the 5-1/2 cup model (NP-HBC10) does not come with this cord.
This unit is also made in China vs the 5-1/2-cup unit being made in Japan.
Ultimately we returned this unit and bought the 5-1/2 cup unit for the reasons stated above and are extremely happy with it.

As for the rice itself, it is delicious! We've made white rice and sweet rice and both have come out with more flavor than I've ever tasted in regular boiled rice. Both units cook similarly.

Conclusion: great rice, terrible cord. Recommend the slightly bigger model instead.
