My family and I are big rice eaters, and the Black & Decker Rice Cooker, makes doing so quite easy. All it takes is the correct measuring of water and rice, and the flip of a switch to make perfect rice for everyone. This really comes in handy and doesn't tie me up when I am in the middle of cooking others things for dinner. Once the rice is ready, it automatically flips to the warm setting and you're ready to eat. The only downfall is the fact that the steam hole on the lid tends to spurt out starchy hot water drops that can be messy. The container is nonstick, so it makes for the easiest clean up ever, or let the container cool and put it in the fridge if you have leftovers. It does make quite a lot of rice. My only recommendation is to not leave the rice on the warmer for too long, because although it doesn't stick, it can burn the rice. There is no setting for this. Since the coils do stay warm for quite some time, it is sometimes feasible to unplug the cooker, while leaving the pot/container in the cooker, because it does keep the rice warm for a while by doing this. Either way, this rice cooker is heaven sent and I cannot live without it. It makes perfect rice each and everytime, and is almost effortless!
