Fuzzy Logic Rice Cooker
Someday we have to buy a rice cooker. This one seems pretty cool. It automatically makes adjustments in temperature and cooking time, depending on the amount of rice being prepared. It has settings for white, sushi, mixed, porridge, sweet, semi-brown, brown, rinse-free, and quick cooking.
Moreover, the unit offers automatic keep-warm and extended keep-warm cycles that maintain ideal serving temperatures, and its reheat cycle allows cooked rice to be reheated and served as freshly cooked. For added convenience, the rice cooker provides an LCD clock and timer, a removable washable lid, a retractable power cord that saves on counter space, and a contemporary white exterior, which makes for an attractive addition to any kitchen. Accessories include two measuring cups (one for regular rice and one for rinse-free rice), one nonstick rice spoon/scooper, a rice spoon holder that attaches to the side of the machine, and easy-to-follow recipes. The rice cooker measures approximately 14 by 8 by 9 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

Yeah, this is a great machine! Not only does it make flawless rice, but the porridge mode is a hidden gem that can be used to make fairly effortless polenta and risotto as well. It's not quite as good as the "real" methods, but far less time consuming, and still "very good".
I highly recommend Beth Hensperger's Rice Cooker cookbook to go with it.
